A new autothrottle feature will be available for the Phenom 300E aircraft, enhancing its already single-pilot-friendly cockpit which includes the highly advanced Prodigy Touch based on Garmin G3000.
Pilots will be able to enjoy a more automated and intuitive flying experience through the autothrottle's advanced automation technology, which will assist in throttle control during various phases of flight. For passengers, this translates to even greater comfort in the cabin. The feature will be available as an optional item for new Phenom 300E aircraft in the third quarter of 2024. Embraer is also committed to supporting in-service aircraft via a service bulletin (SB) available from the fourth quarter of 2024, for aircraft that have received factory-incorporated provisions.
“We are excited to introduce autothrottle to the Phenom 300E's avionics suite. It is another example of Embraer's mindset of continued improvement, listening to customers feedback and elevating an industry-leading product even further. Innovations like this enhance the experience and deliver even more value to operators. And that is why an aircraft like the Phenom 300E continues to offer the ultimate experience in its category,” says Embraer Executive Jets president and CEO Michael Amalfitano.
With this improvement, the Phenom 300 series continues to lead the way in performance, technology and comfort. The world's best-selling light jet for 11 years in a row, it is also the most-flown private jet in the US with over 700 units in operation and over two million flight hours logged. The aircraft is capable of reaching Mach 0.80 and offers unmatched avionics, including the industry-first runway overrun awareness and alerting system (ROAAS), emergency descent mode, coupled go-around and more.
