Debut for Embraer Phenom 100 EV
The Embraer Phenom 100 EV is making its global debut at NBAA 2016, held on November 1-3, in Orlando, Florida. The aircraft will be on static display along with Embraer’s full portfolio of executive jets. The Phenom 100 EV was launched in July 2016 and has already logged more than 100 hours in its flight test campaign. It is an evolution of the entry-level Phenom 100, featuring a new avionics suite and modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines. The new version offers more speed (405ktas high-speed cruise) with superior hot-and-high performance. The aircraft has a four-occupant range of 1,178 nautical miles with NBAA IFR reserves.
The Phenom 100 EV will have dual launch customers, Mexico’s Across and Emirates Flight Training Academy. It is scheduled to enter service in the first half of 2017. Interior enhancements include a new floor sill, featuring a straight line design to increase the aisle area, and relocated power outlets with USB chargers. The aircraft features 11 interior design collections; large windows, even in the private rear lavatory; a refreshment center; integrated air stair; and a large baggage compartment.
