Embraer Executive Jets Phenom 300 receives steep-approach certification from EASA
Embraer Executive Jets reported that the Phenom 300 has received certification from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) for steep-approach operation, which enables increased descent angles of up to 5.5 degrees. “This certification enhances the Phenom 300’s operational flexibility,” said Marco Túlio Pellegrini, President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Our European customers will be particularly pleased to have access to special airports, such as London City.” The new capability, associated with its remarkable field performance, make the Phenom 300 a very versatile business jet to fly in and out of London City, reaching destinations as far as Samara, Russia, or Ankara, Turkey. The steep-approach feature is available as of May 2014 on Phenom 300 to be configured for EASA certification.
