Best of the Best 2016: Business Jets | Light: Embraer Phenom 300
“The Phenom 300 is loved by owner-pilots as well as backseaters for its innovative design, comfort, performance, and ride qualities.” —Peter Agur Jr.
“The Phenom 300 sets the industry standard for range, cabin comfort, and short-field capability. It is now the go-to light jet in the fractional space.” —James Butler
“The operating costs and performance of the Phenom 300 are impressive, and the continued strong number of delivered units for Embraer shows the strength of this aircraft in the market.” —H. Lee Rohde III
- In 2015, for the third consecutive year, the Phenom 300 was the world’s most delivered business jet, with 70 examples received by buyers.
- The jet has a range of nearly 2,270 miles and a maximum cruising speed of 521 mph.
- The cabin was designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA. Its slightly oval shape creates just over 5 feet of width.
- The cabin’s standard configuration seats six passengers; a seventh can sit in the copilot’s seat, because the jet is certified for single-pilot operation.
