Embraer Executive Jet Phenom 100 Type Certificate validated by CAAC
Embraer’s entry-level Phenom 100 executive jet recently received the Validation of Type Certificate issued by Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). “Embraer has been strengthening its market position in China’s executive aviation market over the past few years,” said Guan Dongyuan, President of Embraer China. “CAAC’s certificate for the Phenom 100 is great news for Embraer and prospective customers. With a highly intuitive cockpit, docile handling and reliable systems, the Phenom 100 meets the needs of many customers, including single-pilot operators, flight schools and commercial operators alike.” The Phenom 100 accommodates up to eight occupants. Its range of 1,178nm (2,182km), with NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from Beijing to Tokyo; from New York to Miami; and from London to Tunis.
