Embraer has delivered the 500th Phenom 300 series business jet. According to General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) reports, the Phenom 300 is the only business jet model to reach this milestone in the last 10 years.
The milestone aircraft delivered March 25, is the Phenom 300E (E for Enhanced), the newest edition of the 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.”Email Post to a Friend
