Embraer’s new Phenom 300 light jet has been cleared for takeoff in Europe after the European Aviation Safety Agency issued its type certificate this week. The approval came just four months after Brazilian and U.S. authorities issued type certificates in a validation process that was “was quicker than expected,” according to Ralph Menzel, EASA project certification manager for general aviation–shown here in the center presenting the paperwork to Embraer president and CEO Frederico Fleury Curado (left) and Embraer executive vice president for Executive Jets Luis Carlos Affonso (right).

Like the Brazilian and U.S. approvals, EASA’s validation was issued without restrictions. The Phenom 300 seats up to 10 people, has a top speed of 453 ktas, can fly 1,971 nm and up to 45,000 feet.
