EMBRAER SHOWCASES PHENOMS AT SUN ‘N’ FUN
Melbourne, Florida, March 20, 2012 – Embraer will display its entry-level Phenom 100 and light Phenom 300 jets during the 38th Annual Sun ‘n’ Fun, scheduled for March 27-April 1 in Lakeland, Fla.
Embraer will host operators, potential customers and media in its chalet, located at Booth MD34A at the Linder Regional Airport (LAL) in Lakeland.
“The relaxed atmosphere at Sun ‘n’ Fun allows us to really get to know potential customers and become re-acquainted with our operators who attend,” said Bob Knebel, Vice President of Sales for North America, Embraer Executive Jets. “Showcasing both the Phenom 100 and 300 allows those interested to have a hands-on experience with the jet as well as to get updated on some of the milestones achieved recently. We have delivered over 300 Phenom aircraft, including the first Phenom 100 produced by our new production facility in nearby Melbourne.”
The Phenom 100 can accommodate up to eight occupants and has seven different interior options designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA. Its range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 kilometers), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from New York to Miami, in the U.S.; from London to Rome, in Europe; or from Brisbane to Melbourne, in Australia. The jet has proved to be the fastest in its class. It also has a private aft lavatory as well as the largest baggage capacity available today in the entry-level category. The cockpit features the latest Garmin Prodigy® Flight Deck 1000.
The Phenom 300 reaches 521 mph (839 km/h, or 453 knots - KTAS) and can fly at an altitude of up to 45,000 feet (13,716 meters). Its range of 1,971 nautical miles (3,650 kilometers), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from Los Angeles to Chicago in the U.S. The Phenom 300 carries up to 11 occupants, has a single point of refueling and an externally service lavatory.
