Embraer has delivered a number of enhancements in performance, comfort and technology for its Phenom 300 series. The Phenom 300E is now the first single pilot jet to reach Mach 0.80, delivering a high speed cruise of 464 knots and a five occupant range of 2,010 nm with NBAA IFR reserves.

In terms of comfort, the Phenom 300E now enjoys an even quieter cabin, with up to 40 per cent more pilot and co-pilot seat tracking, thus providing more legroom in the cockpit, and a brand-new premium interior option known as Bossa Nova. The noise reduction improvements lower overall in-flight cabin noise, high-frequency noise and significantly reduce noise during boarding.

With regard to technology, an avionics upgrade includes a runway overrun awareness and alerting system, predictive windshear, emergency descent mode, PERF, TOLD, FAA datacom and many others. The runway overrun awareness and alerting system acts as an additional pilot and warns if the aircraft's approach is too steep or too fast, increasing situational awareness. Embraer has patented this technology and is the first OEM in business aviation to develop and certify it. New predictive windshear warns pilots about windshear conditions in advance to help them prepare and manoeuvre the aircraft in order to best minimise adverse conditions. Additionally, the Phenom 300E now comes with a 4G connection via Gogo Avance L5.

“Despite the Phenom 300's extraordinary success in the past decade, our team of visionaries is always striving to deliver the ultimate experience to our customers, which means taking an industry-leading aircraft and making it even better, faster and safer,” says president and CEO Michael Amalfitano. “Boundless imagination and intelligent engineering gave birth to the Phenom 300E, and it is with that same spirit that we continue enhancing the most popular business jet of the decade.”

The Bossa Nova Edition interior, originally introduced in 2018 with the debut of the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600, now becomes an available option for the Phenom 300E. It features carbon fibre materials, sophisticated stitching and piano-black colouring. Inspired by the famous sidewalks of Rio de Janeiro, the custom quilted design is complemented by the tuxedo stitching and colour accent details on the divan.

Deliveries of new Phenom 300Es with these enhancements will begin in May 2020; some features are optional.
