First Phenom 100EV delivered


Embraer Executive Jets delivered its first Phenom 100 EV to an undisclosed customer in the US at the end of last month, on March 31.

“The Phenom 100 set new industry standards when it arrived in 2008, raising customers’ expectations of an entry-level business jet,” comments Embraer Executive Jets CEO Michael Amalfitano.

An evolution of the company’s Phenom 100, which entered into service in 2008, the Phenom 100EV features the Prodigy Touch flight deck, which is also present in the slightly larger Phenom 300.

Additionally, Pratt & Whitney Canada’s modified PW617F1-E engines offer increased speed and performance, especially in hot-and-high operations.

The aircraft was launched at NBAA/BACE in October of last year and is certified by Brazil’s ANAC and by the FAA. Over 350 Phenom 100 are currently flying in over 37 countries.
