Embraer has received supplementary type certificates for the Phenom 100 belted lavatory from Brazil’s civil aviation agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The approvals allow owners and operators who select that option to carry seven passengers, one more than allowed without the option. The modifications required included addition of a belt to the toilet seat and reinforcements to the aft bulkhead divider.
