Ten months after Embraer rolled out its Phenom 100 VLJ, its larger stablemate made its debut at the company’s Gavião Peixoto plant in Brazil. With an anticipated entry-into-service date of the second half of next year, the Phenom 300 will undergo a series of ground tests before making its first flight–currently scheduled for the middle of this year. Final assembly on the second of the $6.65 million, Pratt & Whitney Canada-powered jets has already begun. According to Embraer, more than 750 Phenom jets have been sold to date, representing a five-year delivery backlog.
