The first Embraer Phenom 100 customers have received their type ratings in the very light jet after completing training with Embraer CAE Training Services at Alliance Airport, in Fort Worth, Texas. James Frost, a real estate and mineral executive, was the first Phenom 100 customer authorized to fly the aircraft, and his wife, Elizabeth, became the first woman to obtain a Phenom 100 type rating. Embraer expects to deliver about 10 Phenom 100s by the end of this month.
