Embraer began deliveries of the first units of the entry level Phenom 100 executive jet in Brazil at the end of June. The first customers to receive the aircraft were Algar Aviation, from Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, for its charter operations, Wellborn Participações, from Londrina, Paraná, and Locar Guindastes e Transportes Intermodais, from São Paulo. The latter two will be using their aircraft for corporate purposes.

“It is gratifying for Embraer to see the Phenom 100 flying with Brazilian customers so quickly, since worldwide deliveries began just seven months ago,” says Breno Corrêa, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Latin America – Executive Jets. “From now on, Brazilians will have access to the superior comfort and exceptional performance of the best jet in its category.”

Of more than 800 firm orders for the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 jets, over 100 are for Latin America, 70% of which for the Brazilian market.

The Phenom 100 was launched in 2005 to establish standards of comfort and performance for the entry level category, and it went into operation in December 2008. Currently, more than 20 Phenom 100 jets are operating, worldwide.

About the Phenom 100 Executive Jet
Premium comfort, outstanding performance and low operating costs are key design drivers of the Phenom 100 best-in-class jet. The aircraft offers pilots and passengers unprecedented comfort and style in its category. Developed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the innovative interior design and relaxing ambience are enhanced by large windows and the most ample cabin in its class.

The pilot-friendly cockpit and docile flying qualities of the new aircraft enable single-pilot operation. Drawing on Embraer’s engineering experience, the Phenom 100 was designed for high utilization and availability. For added safety and reliability, the jet offers a standard anti-skid brake-by-wire system.

The Phenom 100 was introduced by Embraer, in 2005, and is the most comfortable business jet in the entry level category, accommodating four passengers in the club seat configuration. The rear baggage compartment has a capacity of 53 cubic feet (1,501 liters), which is sufficient for transporting golf and ski bags and equipment. Additional storage space in the aircraft nose and interior wardrobes adds up to another 16 cubic feet (453 liters), totaling 71 cubic feet (2,010 liters) throughout the jet.

Based on Garmin’s all-glass, fully-integrated avionics suite, the Prodigy® flight deck offers Phenom jet operators more advantages than any other avionics suite on today’s market. The cockpit features three interchangeable 12-inch displays – two Primary Flight Displays (PFD) and one Multi-Function Display (MFD). The system integrates all primary flight, navigation, communication, terrain, traffic, weather, engine instrumentation, and crew-alert data, and presents the composite information on these three brilliant, sunlight-readable color high-definition screens.

Two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F-E engines power the jet, with 1,695 pounds of thrust each. Its range with four occupants is 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 kilometers or 1,356 miles) with NBAA IFR reserves (35 minutes of holding and 100 nautical mile alternate). The aircraft is capable of flying at 41,000 feet (12,497 meters), attained by a direct climb, even when fully loaded. In addition, the Phenom 100 is designed to perform short-field takeoffs or landings and to fly at a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.70, or 390 knots (True Air Speed – TAS). These characteristics allow customers to fly nonstop from New York to Miami, in the U.S.; from London to Rome, in Europe; or from Brisbane to Melbourne, in Australia.

The jet received the IF Award, in Germany, as the best product, in 2006, and the best interior, in 2007, as well as the Good Design Award, in China, for the best project, in 2006. In May 2008, the editors of Robb Report magazine, in the U.S., voted the Phenom 100 the “Best of the Best Business Jet”.

Under January 2009 economic conditions, the baseline configuration of the Phenom 100 is priced at US$ 3.6 million for FAA certification (USA), US$ 3.65 million for ANAC certification (Brazil) and US$ 3.68 million for EASA certification (European Union).
