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.[2]

Development[edit]

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.

It first flew on 29 April 2008,[3] and was type certificated on 3 December 2009.[4]

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.[5] 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.[6]

Design[edit]

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.

Its structural life is 28,000 flight cycles or 35,000 hours. It is built of 18% composite materials; it has winglets, but not thrust reversers.[3]

The Phenom 300 has single-point refueling and an externally serviced private rear lavatory,[4] refreshment center and baggage area.
