As part of its flying demo tour throughout Asia Pacific, Embraer’s Phenom 100 entry level jet landed, this week, in Perth, Australia. After being exhibited in India, in November 2009, and participating in the Singapore Airshow, February 2-7, the jet’s first appearance in Australia will cover Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Cairns, and Darwin.

“We are excited about showcasing the Phenom 100 in Australia for the first time,” said José Eduardo Costas, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Asia Pacific – Executive Jets. “Australia has a mature aviation culture, going back to the early ‘40s. We are confident that the market will be receptive to the Phenom 100, the fastest and most comfortable jet in its class, and one of the most recent executive jets available on the market today.”

According to the Australian Business Aircraft Association (, over 250 business aircraft, including jets and turboprops, are currently owned and operated in Australia. Business jets, alone, almost doubled from 80 in 2004 to over 140 in mid-2009, signifying an increasing Australian appetite for, and appreciation of, the utility and functionality of this type of aircraft.

The flying demo tour in Australia follows Embraer’s announcement of ExecuJet as an authorized service center. The Australian company provides 24-hour service for all Embraer executive jets in that country.

The Phenom 100 is equipped with the latest in cockpit and cabin design. It has an unparalleled level of comfort, and offers a private aft lavatory, which is one of its competitive features. With a range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, the Phenom 100 is capable of flying nonstop from Brisbane to Melbourne, in Australia; New York to Miami, in the U.S.; or London to Rome, in Europe. The aircraft is flying in over ten countries and has already accumulated in excess of 7,000 flight hours. To date, more than 100 Phenom 100 jets have been delivered, which is a significant milestone since the aircraft was certified in December 2008.
