AGRIJEM's Phenom takes Embraer past delivery milestone
Embraer has completed its 250th Latin America delivery: a Phenom 100EV was delivered to an undisclosed industrial, and a Phenom 300E was delivered to AGROJEM, an agribusiness company.
The Phenom 100 EV features modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines, with 1,730 pounds of thrust, while the Phenom 300E cruises at 464 kts.

Embraer has delivered a Phenom 100EV and a Phenom 300E to two separate Brazilian customers, marking the company's 250th business jet delivery in Latin America. The Phenom 100EV was delivered to an undisclosed industrial company, which selected the aircraft to maintain crucial business operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Phenom 300E was delivered to AGROJEM, an agribusiness company.

“Due to our continuous expansion of operations, we made the decision to transition from a turboprop to the new Phenom 300E. With our previous aircraft, we flew 200 hours per year. Now, with the Phenom 300E, we expect to cover the same distance in just 120 hours per year, saving valuable time and resources,” says José Eduardo Motta, CEO of AGROJEM. “The Phenom 300E is truly a time-saving machine. Beyond reducing our travel time, the aircraft also creates the opportunity for continuous connectivity and the seamless ability to work in transit.”

“We are proud to deliver the ultimate experience in business aviation to two new valued customers from Embraer's home country of Brazil,” adds Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “These deliveries are proof of the inherent value of business aviation, in that each company is purchasing their first business jet for the exclusive time efficiencies and cost savings, as well as the privacy, health and safety benefits.”

The Phenom 100EV is a single-pilot certified, entry-level jet. The aircraft features the tallest and widest cabin in its class, with the exclusive Oval Lite cross section, as well as the best baggage compartment in the category and an airstair typically seen only in larger categories of aircraft. With over 380 aircraft delivered, the Phenom 100 is renowned for high utilisation and low operating and maintenance costs, making it the ideal aircraft for first-time buyers.

The Phenom 300E is a fast and long-range single-pilot certified light jet, capable of reaching Mach 0.80. It features a runway overrun awareness and alerting system, the best cabin pressurisation in its class (6,600 ft. maximum cabin altitude) and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nm with NBAA IFR reserves. Over 550 aircraft have been delivered to date.
