Embraer has signed a contract for sale of a Phenom 300 to Amil Assistência Médica. It will be the first medevac version of the Phenom 300. Delivery is expected in the fourth quarter.

The light twinjet will be equipped with the traditional patient loading utility system manufactured by LifePort. Other medical equipment will include 10-hour oxygen autonomy, 1,000 Watts for vital equipment and a compressed air system. Space will also be available for a ventilator, medical injection pump, defibrillator, IV poles and a neonatal incubator.

Embraer will be responsible for integrating all equipment with the aircraft, from redesigning the interior to assembly to gaining additional certification. Other modifications will allow for a stretcher, four seats for medical personnel and patient companions and a private lavatory.
