Phenom 300E enters charter for Summit
Entering the field of longer range operations, Summit Aviation's new Phenom 300E enables efficient and cost-effective cross country coverage.
Summit Aviation now has a Phenom 300E for charter.

When Summit Aviation closed out what it calls an incredible year of growth at the end of 2019 with the addition of a new Embraer Phenom 300E to its charter fleet, it quietly glided into a larger field of service. “It's about providing better options for our customers,” says director of operations Janine Schwahn.

This new Phenom 300E joins Summit's three other Phenom 300 aircraft and a Hawker 850XP. “From a service standpoint, this aircraft really allows us to cover the country in a way that's much more efficient, convenient and cost-effective for our customers than was previously possible,” adds president Ben Walton. “It's such a great aircraft – the safety, performance and efficiency make it really ideal for charter operations, especially when you're flying in and out of mountainous airports.”

Walton explains what makes the E model so special: “It has all the great features and ramp presence that everyone loves about the original model and makes them better. The main things that end users notice are the head room, leg room and an upgraded entertainment system.”
