The fleet of Embraer Phenom 100 light jets reached a combined 100,000 flight hours this week, the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer announced yesterday. The notch comes 3.5 years after the aircraft type entered service. “This is a significant milestone achieved in such a short time,” said Embraer Executive Jets program vice president Luciano Castro. “The success of the aircraft, with 240 now in service worldwide, results from its flexibility in being able to meet the needs of diverse customers.”
