A monumental milestone has been achieved by Embraer as the Phenom 300 series became the world’s best-selling light jet for the 10th consecutive year and the most delivered twinjet of 2021, according to numbers released by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). Embraer delivered 56 Phenom 300 series light jets in 2021 to achieve this distinction, signaling a decade of product excellence and market dominance.

The Phenom 300 series has had the largest annual delivery rate with 50+ jets being delivered, on average, since entering the market in December 2009. To date, the series has accrued more than 640 deliveries. These achievements highlight the company’s reputation of continual aircraft improvement and innovation, with best-in-class capabilities including range, speed, and cabin pressurization, as well as industry-first technology.

“It has been a distinct honor for the Phenom 300 series to be named the world’s best-selling light jet over these past 10 years, achieving a decade of dominance is an extraordinary accomplishment for Embraer and solidifies our industry leading position in the market,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “Reaching this milestone secures the aircraft’s leadership position in the light jet segment—one filled with excellence and recognition of our outstanding performance, technology, comfort and support. Since inception, we have made continuous improvements to the aircraft based on customer feedback, and we will continue to innovate and improve it in the coming years.”

The Phenom 300 series is in operation in 39 countries and has accumulated nearly one million, five hundred thousand flight hours. Embraer is continuously investing in the attractiveness of the Phenom 300 series to demanding clients around the world, with enhancements to its performance, technology, comfort, and operational efficiency resulting in the highest residual value in the market.

In January of 2020, Embraer announced the new and enhanced Phenom 300E, followed by ANAC, EASA, and FAA approvals in March, achieving triple-certification. The first delivery of the new and enhanced Phenom 300E occurred in June of 2020.

The Phenom 300E sets the highest standard of excellence in the light jet category. In terms of performance, the new, enhanced Phenom 300E is even faster, capable of reaching Mach 0.80, becoming the fastest single-pilot jet in production, and able to deliver a high-speed cruise of 464 knots, and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves.

 

The new, comfort-enhancing features on this jet include a quieter cabin, more legroom in the cockpit, and a new premium interior — the Bossa Nova edition. Named for the Brazilian style of jazz music, and Portuguese for “new trend,” the optional Bossa Nova edition encompasses a package of Embraer’s latest interior developments, with features such as carbon fiber accents and Embraer’s exclusive Ipanema sew style. It is also the first of the Phenom 300 series to feature piano black surfaces.

 

Additional technology enhancements include an avionics upgrade, featuring a runway overrun awareness and alerting system (ROAAS) ― the first technology of its kind to be developed and certified in business aviation ― as well as predictive windshear, Emergency Descent Mode, PERF, TOLD, and FAA Datacom, among others. The Phenom 300E also features 4G connectivity via Gogo AVANCE L5.
