Embraer introduces new evolution of Phenom 100 - already ordered by Emirates Flight Training Academy

Posted 28 July 2016 · Add Comment

Embraer Executive Jets has launched an evolution of its entry-level Phenom 100 business jet, the Phenom 100 EV, at the EAA AirVenture Fly-In and Convention.

 

Featuring a new avionics suite with the Prodigy Touch flight deck, based on the Garmin G3000, and modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines, offering more speed with superior hot-and-high performance, the Phenom 100 EV will enter the market in the first half of 2017.  

The aircraft will enjoy dual launch customers, each with unique operating requirements. Mexico’s Across, a premium business aviation services provider, will benefit from the aircraft’s hot-and-high performance out of its base at Toluca International Airport (TLC). Emirates Flight Training Academy recently upgraded its earlier order for five Phenom 100E to Phenom 100EV becoming the first flight training organisation in the world to train cadet pilots using this platform.  

“The Phenom 100 revolutionized the entry-level segment when it set new standards for comfort, performance, and operating costs,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The new Phenom 100 EV will deliver even greater performance and operational capability while preserving its low operating and maintenance costs.”

Emirates Flight Training Academy, set to open in October 2016, will offer state of the art facilities including a young and modern aircraft fleet for training cadet pilots. Within its enhanced curriculum, cadets will progress from training on single engine piston aircraft to the jet-powered Embraer Phenom 100 EV.  “We selected the Phenom 100 because we considered it to be the entry-level jet that will offer trainees unmatched systems integration and ease of operation, a high utilisation design, low operating costs, airliner-grade performance and docile flying characteristics,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer.  “Our cadets will benefit from next generation technology, speed and thrust for their training missions in the Phenom 100 EV.”
