London Executive Aviation has expanded its fleet with the addition of its first Embraer Phenom 300. The aircraft, which can seat up to seven passengers and will be based at Luton airport, is the only Phenom 300 currently available for charter in the UK and brings the total number of aircraft in the LEA fleet to 29.
Patrick Margetson-Rushmore, chief executive, says: "The Phenom 300 has been widely lauded since entering the market in 2009 and it now adds further quality and diversity to our ever expanding fleet.
"With its spacious, comfortable cabin and the largest baggage com-partment in its class, we have no doubt that the Phenom 300 will be one of the most popular aircraft among our business and leisure clients."
Captains Stefan Pedersen and Ian Austin flew the Phenom 300 on its delivery flight between Brazil and London. Captain Pedersen says: "We flew the aircraft back over a three-day period, routing via the Caribbean, the US and Keflavik. Thanks to the fast cruising speed and low cabin altitude, it is one of the smoothest, most comfortable and best looking jets around."
