Embraer received Brazil ANAC, FAA and EASA approval for Garmin's synthetic-vision technology (SVT) system on the Phenom 100, which has a Garmin G1000-based Prodigy flight deck avionics system. The approval applies to new-production Phenom 100s, as well as retrofit installations for in-service aircraft. SVT recreates a head-down visual topographic landscape derived from Garmin's terrain-alerting database, simulating what the pilot would see with the naked eye in broad daylight. Since it shares the same Prodigy avionics, SVT will be approved for the Phenom 300 "in the coming months," Embraer said.
