Since it first took to the skies almost ten years ago, the Embraer Phenom 300 has become one of the most popular private jets on the market. With its luxurious interiors, technological innovations, and cutting-edge safety features, the Phenom 300 has earned its place in the spotlight.
Since 2012 it has been the best-selling light business jet and with the release of the Phenom 300E in 2017, an even further enhanced model of the popular private jet, there’s never been a better time to own or take your next private jet charter to a whole new level. Here are some of the most notable features the Phenom 300 and 300E can offer you.
With a 17-foot cabin and space for up to nine passengers, the Phenom 300 interior is a sight to behold. While there are not a ton of differences in the raw performance of the Phenom 300 and 300E, their interiors differ.
Like Marcello Cruz—Embraer’s Phenom product strategist in Brazil—told Flying Magazine in early 2019, the updates made to the 300E are a “total redesign of the 300’s interior” and includes things like “new tables, new window shades and mechanisms, redesigned seats and new upper deck and ceiling panels.”
While the Phenom 300 and 300E are classified as a light jet, Business Insider says that the luxurious design and layout of the cabin makes “it look and feel larger than its actual size.” In a plane of this class, it offers the largest refreshment center and baggage capacities, with 84 cubic feet of space. You and your fellow flyers will have the freedom to pack more than the bare essentials.
One notable feature the Phenom 300 offers is the Runway Overrun and Awareness Alerting System, or ROAAS. This intuitive landing assistant technology provides the pilot with a warning advisory if the runway approach is ever too steep or too fast. This helps reduce the risk of a runway overrun upon landing—one of the largest causes of accidents in business aviation.
When you charter a private jet, there is a variety of built-in technology features available. However, a Phenom 300 takes it to another level. Not only does a Phenom 300 private jet have built-in (and high-speed) wi-fi, but it’s also connected to “Gogo’s Advance L5 air-to-ground system which offers much faster service in the U.S. and many areas in Canada. This allows streaming of movies, emails with attachments, and Gogo’s Text & Talk service.”
Thanks to the tastefully hidden touch screens in the cabin, you can watch or stream movies, check on your trip’s progress, and even tweak the cabin temperature.
Another impressive component of the Phenom 300 is its range. It can fly at an altitude of 45,000 feet and has a range of 1,971 nautical miles. This would allow you to travel non-stop from New York to Cancun. While the range will fluctuate depending on how many passengers (and pieces of luggage) are on-board, this remains one of the fastest jets of its kind. And while maintaining speed, it burns up to 19% less fuel per flight than other light jets, producing less pollution.
According to Embraer itself, the Phenom 300 is not only capable of an MMO (Maximum Operating Mach) of Mach 0.80, but it’s the fastest and longest-range single-pilot business jet on the market.
