Embraer recently completed the production plant in Gavião Peixoto near São Paulo, Brazil, for its Phenom 100 and 300 jets. The final assembly plant is expected to build between 120 and 150 jets annually starting next year. Meanwhile, the third flying Phenom 100 joined the flight-test fleet in late December, and Embraer expects to receive Brazilian certification for the very light jet within six months.
