Embraer’s New Option

  • Alexandra Foster

Flight Options is offering the first fractional ownership opportunity with the latest jet from Embraer, the Phenom 300, giving pilots the opportunity to fly the super-light jet by the end of this year. The Phenom 300, which offers the lowest hourly rate in its class and surpasses current environmental standards for private aircraft, offers onboard wireless and broadband Internet and flies at a cruising speed of 518 mph. The aircraft seats seven passengers (plus two crew members), and a 50-hour share is priced at $3,519 per hour. (877.703.2348, www.flightoptions.com)
