Polish operator Flyjet has added a Phenom 100 to its fleet, which will be operated on its AOC. The firm took delivery of the aircraft at the beginning of July and it has already completed more than 40 flight hours. “Completing this many hours has given us great perspective on the model,” says operations executive Pawel Chorzelski.
“We strongly advertised this aircraft to all of our customers before it entered the fleet and the plane itself has less than 600 flight hours total time making it look very fresh. We must admit that compared with the Cessna Mustang which we have been using since 2009, this aircraft not only gives passengers extra cabin space and a separate lavatory but also possesses greater range.
“We can do legs like Warsaw to Nice or Warsaw to Olbia without any fuel stops or even a slight chance of one and with a full passenger configuration that could rarely have been done using the Mustang.”
The Phenom could be cost-effective too: “This aircraft is very well positioned on the market as it beats CJs with the price, giving up to four passengers much more space and a much bigger luggage compartment, which is enormous given the size of the aircraft,” Chorzelski adds.
Flyjet will operate its latest jet on the floating fleet model and hopes to have it positioned all around Europe, not only in Poland.
The operator now runs Beechcraft 90GTX, Cessna Mustang and Learjet 60XR types, with an average fleet age of three years.
