Embraer Phenom 300
Embraer followed up its popular Phenom 100 with the beefier 300, certified in late 2009. The center-aisle cabins share the same oval cross section, with more than five feet of vertical space, but the 300’s cabin is stretched six feet to provide an extra row of seating. A swept wing and winglets add to the speed and efficiency. Quiet Pratt & Whitney engines power the jet to quick takeoffs and a fast cruise. Eleven big windows and a clean, minimalist design by BMW Group DesignworksUSA create a spacious feeling in the cabin. In the cockpit, Embraer’s Prodigy Flight Deck 300 system (based on Garmin’s G1000) simplifies operations to a manageable level for a single pilot.
