Embraer Executive Jets (EEJ) has delivered its first upgraded Phenom 300E six months after announcing the refresh program for its top-selling light twin. Texas law firm Dunham & Jones took delivery of the first customer copy of the enhanced Phenom 300E at a ceremony last week at Embraer’s Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida.
“This milestone delivery to our friends at Dunham & Jones is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing the ultimate customer experience in business aviation,” said EEJ president and CEO Michael Amalfitano. “We are honored to help them grow their Embraer fleet with the world’s best-selling light jet for eight years straight, which has now been even further enhanced in terms of its technology, comfort and performance to ensure its market dominance in the industry.”
Dunham & Jones also owns a Phenom 100EV. Powered by new, Fadec-equipped Pratt & Whitney PW535E1 turbofans, the Phenom 300E can fly faster and farther than its predecessor—Mach 0.80 and 2,010 nm with NBAA IFR reserves compared with Mach 0.78 and 1,971 nm range. It also comes equipped with a quieter cabin, upgraded Prodigy Touch Flight Deck based on the Garmin G3000 avionics suite, optional 4G connectivity through a Gogo Avance L5 system, and Bossa Nova interior.
