The Phenom 300E becomes first single-pilot jet to reach Mach 0.80

Posted 31 January 2020 · Add Comment

Embraer’s Phenom 300 is now the first single-pilot jet to reach Mach 0.80, offering a quieter cabin and upgrades to its avionics that include predictive windshear and a runway overrun awareness and alerting system, Embraer exclusive intellectual property and the first technology of its kind to be developed and certified in business aviation.

  

To deliver the best performance in the category, the Phenom 300E now has more speed. The enhanced aircraft is the first single-pilot jet to reach Mach 0.80, making the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot jet in business aviation even faster. With the new enhancements, the Phenom 300E now delivers a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves.

 

“Despite the Phenom 300’s extraordinary success in the past decade, our team of visionaries is always striving to deliver the ultimate experience to our customers, which means taking an industry-leading aircraft and making it even better, faster and safer,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Boundless imagination and intelligent engineering gave birth to the Phenom 300E, and it is with that same spirit that we continue enhancing the most popular business jet of the decade.”

 

Deliveries of the new Phenom 300E with these enhancements will begin in May of 2020; some features are optional.
