Embraer's Phenom 300 leads in twinjet deliveries
Embraer delivered 63 Phenom 300 series aircraft throughout 2023, making it the world's best-selling light jet for 12 consecutive years and the best-selling twinjet for the fourth year running, according to GAMA.
The Phenom 300 series has accrued more than 730 deliveries worldwide with over two million flight hours logged.

Embraer's Phenom 300 series has maintained its status as the world's best-selling light jet for 12 consecutive years, while also attaining the best-selling twinjet for the fourth year running, according to data released by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association. To achieve this distinction, the company delivered 63 Phenom 300 series aircraft throughout 2023.

The Phenom 300 series is the most successful business jet of the past decade, having accrued more than 730 deliveries worldwide and operating in 40 countries. With over two million flight hours logged, it recently became the most-flown aircraft in the United States, with more than 360,000 flights in a 12 month period.

"The Phenom 300 series continues to demonstrate Embraer's commitment to delivering the ultimate experience in business aviation," says president and CEO Michael Amalfitano. "For more than a decade, the aircraft has earned well-deserved recognition and continues to excel in terms of performance, technology, comfort and support. With our ongoing dedication to our loyal customers, we will continue to develop the programme based on customer feedback, industry trends and new technologies."

Most recently, Embraer announced a new autothrottle feature that will be available for the Phenom 300E. The optional feature is set to enhance the already single-pilot-friendly cockpit, which includes the highly advanced Prodigy Touch based on Garmin G3000.

As the fastest light jet in production, the Phenom 300E has a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 2,010nm (3,724km) with NBAA IFR reserves. Additionally, the aircraft offers unmatched avionics, including a Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System, the first to be developed and certified in business aviation, as well as Coupled Go-Around, Emergency Descent Mode.
