BEST of the BEST 2014 | Wings & Water | Business Aircraft | Light: Embraer Phenom 300

Considering its attributes—best-in-class performance, baggage capacity, and window size, according to the manufacturer—it is not surprising that the Embraer Phenom 300 (954.359.5387, www​.embraer​executivejets.com) was by far the company’s best-selling business jet in 2013. Embraer delivered 60 examples of the $9 million jet, making it one of the entire industry’s most popular models. The Phenom 300 has a range of nearly 2,270 miles and a high cruising speed of 521 mph. The cabin, which was designed in partnership with BMW Group Design­worksUSA and comfortably seats six passengers in its standard configuration, has a slight oval shape that creates just over 5 feet of width. The large windows allow plenty of light to fill the cabin, including the lavatory, which has two windows—an unusual design element for any type of aircraft.
