Phenom 300 from EmbraerThe new Phenom 300 from Embraer took its second flight in in August and it seems that in the second half of 2009 will see a very exciting executive jet in the skies above.


After its first flight and the Ground Vibration Test (GVT) the Phenom 300 is going through performance checks, in order to define the final aerodynamic configuration. In the meantime, the third and fourth Phenom 300s are in the assembly and pre-assembly stages.

Phenom 300 from EmbraerPremium comfort, outstanding performance and low operating costs are key design drivers for the Phenom 300 jet. With the interior designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the aircraft will offer pilots and passengers the comfort and style previously unknown in its category. The relaxing ambience is enhanced by generous windows and the most ample cabin in its class. Onboard conveniences include a wardrobe and refreshment centre, an aft cabin private lavatory with toiletry cabinet, satellite communications, and a modern entertainment system.

The pilot-friendly cockpit and the great flying qualities of the new aircraft will enable single-pilot operation. The Phenom 300 is designed for high utilization. The jet will offer a standard anti-skid brake-by-wire system with carbon brakes. Based on Garmin’s all-glass, fully-integrated avionics suite, the Prodigy flight deck promise to offer Phenom jet operators more advantages than any other avionics suite on today’s market.

Phenom 300 from EmbraerThe 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 system data and presents the composite information in brilliant, sunlight-readable color on three high definition displays.

With a configuration to accommodate up to ten occupants, the Phenom 300 jet has a huge 2.15-cubic-meter (for our American friend that's 76-cubic-foot) baggage capacity that will conveniently transport passengers’ luggage, golf bags and skis.

Two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E engines, with 3,200 pounds of thrust each, power the new Phenom 300. Its range with six occupants will be 1,800 nautical miles (3,334 km or 2,071 miles). The jet is capable of flying at 45,000 feet (13,716 meters), has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.78, and is also designed for short-field takeoffs.
