Embraer has delivered the 500th Phenom 300 series business jet. The Phenom 300 is the only business jet model to reach this milestone in the last 10 years.

 

“The Phenom 300 has fascinated customers since it entered the market and its tremendous popularity only challenges us even more to continue to deliver the ultimate customer experience,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “This landmark delivery to a current Phenom 100 customer with prior fractional ownership experience further validates the true innovation that the Phenom 300 delivers to private owners, corporations and operators in the Access Economy.” 

The milestone aircraft delivered is the Phenom 300E, the newest edition of the most popular light jet.  Mr. Freeman Pickett III received his aircraft at Embraer’s Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida and said: “The Phenom 100 served us very well for our trips throughout the Midwest, but as we began to fly more, with more passengers and to destinations farther away, we began to use a Phenom 300 to which we had access. The Phenom 300E has the speed, range and capabilities that we now need, including single-pilot operation—a very important feature for us—with all the cabin space and comfort for everybody onboard, not to mention all the baggage space. The cabin technology is unrivaled and elegant, and the connectivity is quite convenient.”

Over the last five years, the Phenom 300 fleet has doubled in size, growing at a rate of just over 18% (CAGR) with its utilization growth rate outpacing its fleet growth by 30%. Among fractional ownership programs, the Phenom 300 represents the largest customer base and fleet size.
