Embraer yesterday, delivered the first Phenom 300E with the new Bossa Nova interior to Joe Howley, co-founder of Patient Airlift Services (PALS).
Just two months after the first delivery of the new, enhanced Phenom 300E, this particular aircraft delivery is set apart by its compelling purpose and exclusive interior design package.
Announced simultaneously with the new, enhanced Phenom 300E, the optional Bossa Nova edition interior for the light jet was named for the Brazilian style of jazz music.
Portuguese for “new trend,” Bossa Nova encompasses a package of Embraer’s latest interior developments, with features such as carbon fiber accents and Embraer’s exclusive Ipanema sew style.
It’s also the first of the Phenom 300 series to feature piano black surfaces. Embraer’s Design DNA abounds in the Phenom 300E, which is set apart from others in the light jet category by its extensive opportunities for customization.
The Bossa Nova interior was first introduced with the debut of the Phenom 300E’s larger siblings, the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600, and won best design in the 2019 International Yacht & Aviation Awards in Venice.
The Bossa Nova interior is just one feature that sets the new, enhanced Phenom 300E apart from the other aircraft in the light jet category. The most successful business jet of the past decade was further enhanced with technology, comfort, and performance features.
An avionics upgrade includes the first runway overrun awareness and alerting system (ROAAS) to be developed and certified in business aviation, as well as predictive windshear,
Emergency Descent Mode, PERF, TOLD, and FAA Datacom, among others. Additionally, the aircraft now features 4G connectivity via Gogo AVANCE L5.
The interior of the new, enhanced Phenom 300E was made even quieter and features more cockpit legroom for pilot comfort.
All of this is now available in the fastest single-pilot jet in the world, capable of reaching Mach 0.80, and delivering high-speed cruise of 464 knots with a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves.
The Phenom 300 is the most delivered light jet for the past eight years and the most delivered business jet series of the 2010s. The aircraft is in operation in more than 30 countries and has accumulated more than one million flight hours.
