The Embraer EMB-505 Phenom 300 is a light jet aircraft developed by the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. It can carry 7 to 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.
Embraer began designing the Phenom 300 after finding that potential customers of the Phenom 100 would also like a bigger aircraft. It was a new design with the aim of allowing operation to smaller airports like London City and Telluride Regional Airport.
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. 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 a twin-engined cantilever monoplane with a low-positioned, swept wing, it has a horizontal stabiliser in a T-tail configuration and a retractable tricycle landing gear. It has two rear-pylon-mounted Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E turbofan engines, one each side of the fuselage. The enclosed cabin has room for nine passengers and two crew pilot; during single-pilot operation an additional passenger can be carried; access to the flightdeck and cabin is using an airstair on the left-hand side behind.
The Phenom 300 has single-point refueling and an externally serviced private rear lavatory, refreshment center and baggage area.
