Embraer Phenom 100
Embraer was building jets for regional airlines long before it entered the light-jet category in 2005 with the Phenom 100, and the airplane feels more like a downsized airliner than a beefed-up private aircraft. But in the cockpit, procedures have been automated and simplified for safe single-pilot operation. In the roomy cabin, extra-large windows and ergonomic design by BMW Group DesignworksUSA provide a comfortable ride. Plentiful power outlets and sleek wood trim show attention to detail.
