Introducing the Phenom 100 EV Private Jet by Embraer
A touch more phenomenal – improved performance, more speed, faster climb. Embraer Executive Jets introduced the latest evolution of the Phenom 100—the Phenom 100 EV at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on July 27, 2016. The $4.495 million aircraft will feature a new avionics suite with the Prodigy Touch flight deck, based on the Garmin G3000, and modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines with 1,730-lb. thrust.
“A new evolution is here,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, Embraer Executive Jets president and CEO.
The upgrades increase high-speed cruise from 389 kt. to 405 kt. and increase thrust at hot-and-high airports by up to 15%, Pellegrini said. That equates to more range and a faster time-to-climb. The aircraft has a four-occupant range of 1,178 nm.
The aircraft will be available in the first half of 2017.
Across, Mexico’s largest charter operator, and Emirates Flight Training Academy are the launch customers for the upgraded aircraft.
Across will take delivery of three Phenom 100 EV aircraft in 2017. The company, based at Toluca International Airport, will benefit from the increased hot-and-high performance that the aircraft offers, Pellegrini said.
Emirates Flight Training Academy, which will open next October in Dubai, will take delivery of the Phenom 100 EV next year as well. Emirates set up the training academy to address the industry’s growing demand for pilots. The company upgraded its earlier order for five Phenom 100 E aircraft to Phenom 100 EV. It is the first flight training organization to train cadet pilots using this platform, the company said.
