Embraer delivers first new, enhanced Phenom 300E on schedule
aerobd.news : Embraer announced the first delivery of its new, enhanced Phenom 300E — the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot business jet, capable of reaching Mach 0.80 ― to Texas law firm Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law, P.C.
The firm, which also owns a Phenom 100EV, took delivery of the enhanced Phenom 300E last week during a ceremony at Embraer’s Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida.
“This milestone delivery to our friends at Dunham & Jones is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing the ultimate customer experience in business aviation,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “We are honored to help them grow their Embraer fleet with the world’s best-selling light jet for eight years straight, which has now been even further enhanced in terms of its technology, comfort and performance to ensure its market dominance in the industry.”
“Our clients rely on Dunham & Jones attorneys for personalized, one-on-one attention, and business aviation is the conduit to make that possible,” said Paul Dunham, Principal, Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law, P.C. “The speed, operating cost, and comfortable cabin pressurization of the new, enhanced Phenom 300E were certainly distinguishing factors in our selection process, as was our exceptional experience with the Phenom 100EV.”
With its unparalleled technology, exceptional comfort, and stunning performance, the Phenom 300E sets the standard for the light jet category. The aircraft received technology enhancements, including an avionics upgrade, which includes a runway overrun awareness and alerting system (ROAAS) ― the first technology of its kind to be developed and certified in business aviation ― predictive windshear, Emergency Descent Mode, PERF, TOLD, and FAA Datacom, among others. The Phenom 300E also features 4G connectivity via Gogo AVANCE L5.
The new comfort-enhancing features on this jet include a quieter cabin, more legroom in the cockpit, and a new premium interior option — the Bossa Nova edition. In terms of performance, the new, enhanced Phenom 300E is even faster, capable of reaching Mach 0.80, and delivers high-speed cruise of 464 knots, and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves.
The Phenom 300 series is in operation in more than 30 countries and has accumulated more than one million flight hours. It has been the world’s most delivered light jet for eight consecutive years, having accrued more than 540 deliveries since entering the market in December 2009.
About the Phenom 300E
The Phenom 300E is the fastest and longest-ranged single pilot jet, with a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IRF reserves. With the best climb and field performance in its class, the Phenom 300E costs less to operate and maintain than its peers. The aircraft is capable of flying at 45,000 feet (13,716 meters), powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E1 engines with 3,478 pounds of thrust each. The Phenom 300E offers a spacious cabin with the Embraer DNA Design and its baggage compartment is among the largest in its category. The largest windows in the class deliver abundant natural lighting in the cabin as well as in the private lavatory. The comfort of the seats, with recline and full movement capability, is enhanced by the best cabin pressurization among light jets (6,600 ft. maximum cabin altitude). The Phenom 300E features distinct temperature zones for pilots and passengers, a wardrobe and refreshment center, voice and data communications options, and an entertainment system.
The pilot-friendly cockpit enables a single-pilot operation and offers the advanced Prodigy Touch Flight Deck, based on the acclaimed Garmin 3000 avionics suite. The features it carries from a class above include single-point refueling, an externally serviced lavatory, and an airstair.
