A Peep Into The World’s Most Popular Business Jet Cabin
Without the shackles of convention, amazing things can happen. Built by Brazil-based Embraer Executive Jets, the Phenom 300 light jet is the most-delivered business jet in the world.
In just seven years of operation, the Phenom 300 is approaching the 400 aircraft mark having accumulated 266 deliveries since 2013. The aircraft is in operation in 30 countries and has accumulated close to 500,000 flight hours.
In 2016, Embraer Executive Jets delivered 63 Phenom 300 light jets, the highest volume of any business jet model for the year.
Now, let's take a look at the onboard products and features of this fast-selling $9m business jet.
Prodigy Touch - a highly intuitive cockpit
With no overhead panel, the pilot-friendly cockpit of the Phenom 300 enables single-pilot operation and offers the advanced Prodigy Touch Flight Deck which provides a highly intuitive environment with softkeys and touchscreen functionalities to minimize navigation time on menus. The smart system automation simplifies the pilot’s checklist. It also features Flight Management System (FMS) with graphical flight planning capability which is unique in its class.
One of the roomiest light jets money can buy
The Phenom 300 offers a spacious cabin, designed in partnership with BMW Designworks USA. It carries 8 occupants in a standard configuration, and up to 11 occupants with optional items such as the 7th seat and the belted toilet. The 17-foot-long (5.23 m) OvalLiteTM cabin offers more leg and head room and features the largest galley in its class.
The seats move in all directions, swivel, and fully recline for resting or sleeping. Independent cabin/cockpit temperature controls provided by the ECS (Environment Control System) allow cabin temperature to be controlled either from the cockpit or the VIP seat.
Best cabin pressurization in its class
At 45,000 feet, the Phenom 300 is pressurized to a cabin altitude of 6,600 feet, so occupants feel less fatigued and have a more comfortable flight experience. Take-off capabilities enable the jet to climb directly to 45,000 feet with no intermediate steps.
Work as you fly by natural light
With the largest windows in its class of about 1.33 square feet, the Phenom 300 lets in plenty of natural light to work or read by.
There are even 2 windows in the lavatory which features belted toilet certified for takeoff and landing.
Phenom 300 first flew on 29 April 2008 and on 29 December 2009, Embraer delivered the first Phenom 300 to Executive Flight Services, Brazil.
