The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), has confirmed that Embraer Executive Jets delivered 53 Phenom 300 and Phenom 300E light jets during the course of 2018.
“The Phenom 300’s continued success in the market is a reflection of our commitment to fascinate customers and deliver the ultimate customer experience in business aviation,” said Michael Amalfitano, president & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The revolutionary interior design of the Phenom 300E adds even more value to this already popular model, reaffirming our commitment to continue to invest in true innovation.”
In March 2018 the new Phenom 300E entered service. The new aircraft is designated “E” for “Enhanced” in reference to its entirely redesigned cabin and the addition of the industry-leading nice HD CMS/IFE (Cabin Management System/In-Flight Entertainment) by Lufthansa Technik.
The new interior design of the Phenom 300E includes the all-new Embraer DNA seats, designed and manufactured by Embraer. The new seats in the Phenom 300E feature an extendable headrest with bolsters, retractable armrest, broader backs for greater support, and extendable leg rests for improved ergonomics. The new table, side ledge, side wall, and valance design optimises passenger mobility in the cabin with expanded aisle clearance and increased cabin space.
The Phenom 300E features an industry-exclusive upper technology panel (upper tech panel) along the center line of the aircraft’s ceiling, significantly improving passenger ergonomics. The panel gives passengers relevant in-flight information, while allowing for convenient interaction with cabin management controls, as well as the option of in-flight entertainment with audio and video on demand via two slender swing-down seven-inch displays. The unit also offers an enhanced cabin lighting scheme, with a broad range of ambient mood selections, as well as integrates sleek, silent gaspers enhancing acoustic comfort. Bluetooth connectivity also allows passengers to view in-flight information on their personal devices.
