Embraer Executive Jets has launched an upgraded Phenom 300.
Embraer say the new business jet can fly faster and farther, offers a quieter cabin, and has more capable avionics.
The upgraded business jet has a higher top speed of Mach 0.80 versus Mach 0.78 on previous Phenom 300/300E models propelled by a pair of new Fadec-equipped Pratt & Whitney PW535E1 turbofans each producing 3,478 pounds of thrust, 118 more pounds than the PW535E found on predecessors.
Flight range also rises to 2,010 nm, up from 1,971 nm.
Deliveries of the enhanced Phenom 300E are expected to begin in May, the company said. This builds on enhancements Embraer announced for the light jet about two years ago.
Inside the jet provides a quieter cabin, and an optional premium interior from the award-winning Bossa Nova design of the Praetor 600 is available. This includes carbon fiber materials, unique stitching, and piano-black coloring.
The Phenom 300E also has an available option for 4G connectivity via a Gogo Avance L5 system.
The upgraded Touch Flight Deck is based on the Garmin G3000 avionics suite, adding capabilities such as a runway overrun awareness and alerting system, predictive windshear, emergency descent mode, performance and takeoff/landing data (PERF/TOLD), and FAA Datacom.
The new jet has a baseline list price of $9.65 million USD.
The Bossa Nova package adds $150,000 for trim and finishing only.
