Best of the Best 2011: Business Aircraft: Light: Embraer Phenom 100

  • Embraer Phenom 100

    Though categorized as a light jet because its maximum takeoff weight exceeds 10,000 pounds—just barely—the Embraer Phenom 100 (www.embraerexecutivejets.com) has operating costs that are more akin to those of a very light jet or turboprop. It is priced at $3.9 million and burns just 88 gallons of fuel per hour. The Phenom 100 has a cruise speed of nearly 450 mph, a range of 1,356 miles, 53 cubic feet of external luggage space, and seating for as many as six passengers, in a cabin conceived by the ergonomics experts at BMW DesignworksUSA.
