Summit continues to fly high with eighth Phenom
Summit Aviation now has nine jets in its charter fleet, including four Phenom 300E jets. The 300 series has been the best-selling light business jet in the world for the past eight years, according to GAMA stats.
The Phenom 300E is proving popular with Summit's client base.

Summit Aviation, a Part 135 operator located at the Bozeman Yellowstone International airport in Montana, has added a fourth Embraer Phenom 300E to its fleet of charter aircraft. The Phenom addition swells its charter fleet to nine aircraft: eight Phenom 300 series jets and one Hawker 850XP. Three of the last four fleet additions, including this latest delivery, have been Phenom 300Es, which are capable of reaching Mach 0.80.

“This addition expands not only our coverage and service options, but also provides our customers the newest and most technologically advanced business aircraft in its class,” comments Ben Walton, president of Summit.

The Embraer Phenom 300 has been the best-selling light business jet in the world for the past eight years, according to GAMA.

“It’s a fantastic aircraft,” Walton continues. “It has the safety, performance and efficiency that are ideal for charter operations, especially when you’re flying in and out of mountainous airports, which we do a lot. We always strive to provide an extraordinary aviation experience, and this beautiful new aircraft is another way for us to do that.”
