The Phenom 300’s popularity is soaring to new heights. Offering midsize jet capabilities at light jet prices, the Phenom 300, by Brazilian manufacturer Embraer, is a top-rated choice among private owners and charter companies. Although similar in design to the entry-level Phenom 100, the 300 offers superior capacity, range, speed and amenities over its smaller cousin, and indeed, over many of its competitors as well.
The cabin features an “Oval Lite” frame by Embraer and an interior designed by BMW, resulting in a layout that is both efficient and elegant. Its dimensions measure a respectable 5 ft x 5.2 ft x 17.2 ft. In standard configuration, it offers six club seats, with additional seating options, including a two-person divan. Covered in lush two-toned leather, the seats can swivel and slide for additional spacing and fully recline for a more comfortable sleeping experience. Adding to that comfort is an environmental control system and a maximum cabin pressure of 6,600 ft, even at its maximum flight altitude of 45,000 ft. Business travelers will appreciate the satellite phone connections, onboard Wi-Fi, two foldout executive desks and individual arm monitors.
Embraer has added additional “large” touches to improve passenger experience, including one of the largest galleys in the light jet class, a lavatory with two large windows, large basin and toilet, and an external rear baggage compartment with a large 66 cubic foot capacity, enough to hold 10 – 15 pieces of luggage, or store several set of golf clubs or skis.
The Phenom 300’s technical capabilities are equally impressive. The cockpit features a Prodigy Touch avionics system, requiring only one pilot for most flights. The plane comes equipped with single-point refueling for faster pit stops. Though with a range of 2268 statute miles, the Phenom can reach many destinations with refueling. It makes an excellent choice for passengers flying to a charter yacht destination, easily connecting Montreal to Nassau or San Francisco to Acapulco. And with cruise speeds of 520 miles per hour, passengers can reach their destination in just a few hours.
