The Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300 is a light jet aircraft developed by the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. It can carry 8 or 9 occupants with a flying range of 1,971 nmi (3,650 km). The price for a standard FAA aircraft with no optional items is estimated at US $8,955,000 in 2015.[3]

Development[edit]

Embraer began designing the Phenom 300 after finding that potential customers of the Phenom 100 would also like a bigger aircraft. It first flew on 29 April 2008,[4] and was type certificated on 3 December 2009.[5]

On 29 December 2009 Embraer delivered the first Phenom 300 to Executive Flight Services at the company's headquarters at São José dos Campos, Brazil.[6] In just four years, the Phenom 300 climbed to the top position on the list of most delivered business jets, with 60 units delivered in 2013. The Phenom 300 is the fastest seller in NetJets' inventory, counting 36. The 10 most recent totaled a price of $90 million.[7]

Design[edit]

The Phenom 300 is a "clean sheet" design, not a scale-up of the earlier Phenom 100, and engineers used London City Airport and Telluride Regional Airport as reference airports. Its structural life is 28,000 flight cycles or 35,000 hours, built of 18% composite materials. It has winglets, but not thrust reversers.[4]

Cabin[edit]

The cabin was designed with BMW DesignworksUSA.[5] At 45,000 feet (14,000 m), the Phenom 300 is pressurized to a cabin altitude of 6,600 feet (2,000 m), although the 1.9m3 (66ft3) cargo hold is not pressurized.[4] The door is 1.47m high and 0.74m wide.[5]

The jet features single-point refueling and an externally serviced private rear lavatory (with optional seat belt),[5] refreshment center and baggage area. It received FAA Type Certification on 14 December 2009 as the Embraer EMB-505.[8]
