São José dos Campos, Brazil, 2015-4-20 — /Travel PR News/ — Embraer Executive Jets will showcase the entry-level Phenom 100E and Phenom 300 light jet, on static display, at Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-In & Expo, from April 21-26, in Lakeland, Fla.
“Launched in 2005, the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 are fulfilling their mission as revolutionary jets, with a global fleet of over 570 aircraft in 38 countries,” said Marco Túlio Pellegrini, President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Having been in service for about six years, the Phenom fleet has logged more than 500,000 flight hours.”
In 2014, the Phenom 100E entered service and introduced multi-function spoilers along with 11 new interior collections, standard veneer, and a redesigned refreshment center. Premium seats and added lavatory stowage options also became available. As of 2015, the Phenom 100E includes new baseline features, such as synthetic vision system, maps and charts, and an increased Maximum Zero Fuel Weight.
On April 2, the Company celebrated the delivery of the 100th Phenom jet produced at its assembly facility in Melbourne, Fla. The aircraft, a Phenom 300, was also the 40th delivered to NetJets. In October 2014, Embraer broke ground on its manufacturing expansion in Melbourne, to produce the Legacy 450 mid-light and the Legacy 500 midsize aircraft.
About the Phenom 100E
The Phenom 100E is the most spacious entry-level jet. Designed in partnership with BMW Designworks USA, its cabin delivers ample space, abundant natural light from large windows, a wardrobe, and a private aft lavatory with windows. The aircraft features distinct temperature zones for pilots and passengers. Interior options include eleven new interior collections, standard veneer, and other amenities, such as a refreshment center, lavatory stowage, premium seats, and inflight entertainment.
The Phenom 100E has a four-occupant range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), with NBAA IFR reserves. This range allows nonstop flights from Miami to Teterboro or White Plains. With a high speed cruise of 390 knots, the Phenom 100E is one of the fastest jets in its class, with operating costs comparable to that of leading turbo-prop aircraft. The Phenom 100E also features multi-function spoilers, and the aircraft is capable of flying at 41,000 feet (12,500 m), powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F-E engines with 1,695 pounds of thrust each.
The pilot-friendly cockpit enables single-pilot operation and offers the Prodigy Flight Deck, with Synthetic Vision System. Features typically seen in larger aircraft are the integrated air stair, a private rear lavatory, and the largest baggage compartment in its class. Other standard features include improved takeoff performance with thrust reserve, increased Maximum Zero-Fuel Weight and an electronic checklist.

This range allows nonstop flights from Miami to Telluride, or Los Angeles to Orlando.

The largest windows in the class deliver abundant natural lighting in the cabin as well as in the private lavatory in the back of the aircraft. The comfort of the seats, with recline and full movement capability, is enhanced by the best pressurization among light jets (6,600 ft. maximum cabin altitude). The Phenom 300 features distinct temperature zones for pilots and passengers, a wardrobe and refreshment center, voice and data communications options, and an entertainment system.
