The Phenom 300 is a 7-8 passenger, single pilot twin turbofan light business jet developed by Embraer. The Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer entered the business jet market with the highly acclaimed personal jet, the Phenom 100. The 100 was designed as an entry level jet and it quickly garnered a great reputation for its robust design, simple operation, and solid performance. The 300 was designed to go beyond the successes of the 100 and be much more than a stretch version of the entry level jet. Indeed, Phenom 300 was recognized in Flying Magazine’s Editors Choice award 2010: ”Phenom delivers on every one of its guarantees and does it in high style.”
Embraer’s designers gave the Phenom 300 a longer fuselage, Pratt & Whitney PW 535-E turbofan engines, an all-new wing, powerful and increased fuel capacity. The jet has good speed, climbing performance, and range while maintaining great operating efficiencies. As with the Prodigy 100 aboard the Phenom 100, the highly intuitive Garmin Prodigy 300 flight deck is based on the Garmin G1000 and is described by its pilots as ‘brilliant’.
The interior design was conceived in a collaboration with BMW Designworks. The large, nicely placed windows and clean lines of the minimalist design give the feeling of a much larger space. Although the cabin is only 14 inches longer, the designers managed to create a larger lavatory, a larger galley, additional passenger seating, and more room throughout the entire cabin. The option of a side-facing divan offers even more comfort and layout flexibility.

The lavatory even has two full size windows; a feature not found in other light jets. Each executive seats has its own power outlet and control panel for lighting, temperature control and other amenities. These and other features were incorporated with the goal of making your trip as productive as it is comfortable.
