Phenom 100

Phenom 100 Personal Jet VIP TransportThe Phenom 100 is a twin turbofan engine light jet introduced in 2008 by the Brazilian company Embraer.  Embraer is one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world and over its 40 year history, it has been involved in design, development, and manufacturing for commercial, agricultural, and private aviation.  The Phenom 100 was designed to be a high performance, premium comfort private jet and is described by its manufacturer as an entry level private jet with next generation technology.  The Phenom 100 along with other Embraer aircraft are assembled in North America at its Melbourne, Florida plant of components that are largely U.S. sourced.

In its first years, the Phenom 100 was placed in a somewhat arbitrary category of ‘very light jet’.  This term is not used in the aviation industry anymore; the preferred description being ‘personal jet’ or ‘entry level jet’.  No matter how you choose to categorize it, the Phenom 100 is designed to delight pilot and passenger alike.

The Phenom 100 has an empty weight of just over 7000 lbs, and a maximum weight of just over 10,000 lbs; that’s several thousand less than many other light jets in its class.  Powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617-F turbofan engines rated at 1,695 lb thrust each, it can take off in only 3100-3400 feet enabling it to operate out of very short airfields.

It is designed to be single pilot operated and features the Prodigy Flight Deck 100.  The result has been described by many pilots as the most highly intuitive and professional cockpit available among entry-level jets.

The cabin is surprising for its size and aesthetically pleasing as well.  There is seating for four in large leather VIP seats in club configuration, with well-positioned windows to provide natural light.  Also featuring a small galley, a fully enclosed lavatory, and attractive wood finishing throughout, this jet offers the capabilities and environment characteristic of a class higher, but with all the benefits unique to such a very light jet .
