The very first new, enhanced Phenom 300E business jet has been delivered to its launch customer – a law firm based in Texas, USA. The Phenom 300E is a single-pilot business jet that can reach Mach 0.80.
The buyer, Texas law firm Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law, which also owns a Phenom 100EV, took delivery of the enhanced Phenom 300E at the end of June 2020 during a ceremony at Embraer’s Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida.
“This milestone delivery to our friends at Dunham & Jones is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing the ultimate customer experience in business aviation,” said Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “We are honoured to help them grow their Embraer fleet with the world’s best-selling light jet for eight years straight, which has now been even further enhanced in terms of its technology, comfort and performance.”
“Our clients rely on Dunham & Jones attorneys for personalised, one-on-one attention, and business aviation is the conduit to make that possible,” said Paul Dunham, principal at Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law. “The speed, operating cost and comfortable cabin pressurisation of the new, enhanced Phenom 300E were certainly distinguishing factors in our selection process, as was our exceptional experience with the Phenom 100EV.”
The aircraft received technology enhancements, including an avionics upgrade, which includes a runway overrun awareness and alerting system (ROAAS), predictive windshear, Emergency Descent Mode, PERF, TOLD and FAA Datacom, among others. The Phenom 300E also features 4G connectivity via Gogo Avance L5.
The new comfort-enhancing features on this jet include a quieter cabin, more legroom in the cockpit, and a new premium interior option – the Bossa Nova edition. In terms of performance, the new, enhanced Phenom 300E is even faster, capable of reaching Mach 0.80, and delivers high-speed cruise of 464kts and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724km) with NBAA IFR reserves.
The Phenom 300 series is in operation in more than 30 countries and has accumulated more than one million flight hours. It has been the world’s most delivered light jet for eight consecutive years, having accrued more than 540 deliveries since entering the market in December 2009.
