Embraer Executive Jets celebrated the delivery of the 500th Phenom yesterday, just 5.5 years after the first Phenom 100 entered service and 4.5 years after Phenom 300 deliveries began. The milestone aircraft, a Phenom 300, was delivered to Prime Fraction Club, a fractional provider in Brazil that operates three other Phenoms, as well as helicopters, boats and sports cars.
“The delivery of 500 Phenoms in just more than five years of operation validates our commitment to offer the market differentiating products and excellence in services,” said Embraer Executive Jets president and CEO Marco Túlio Pellegrini. “The Phenom family was designed to exceed all expectations from our customers, and we are privileged to deliver this commemorative aircraft to Prime Fraction Club.”
According to Embraer, Phenoms are flown in 37 countries by 400 customers, ranging from “corporations, governments, charter and fractional companies to aviation schools, medevac transportation and owner-pilots.” To date, the Phenom fleet has logged more than 370,000 flight hours. More than 300 of the Phenoms in service are Model 100s.
