Embraer delivers first Asia Pacific Phenom 300E


Embraer has delivered a Phenom 300E to an Australian customer—the first Phenom 300E to be delivered in the Asia Pacific region.

Embraer Phenom 300E MSN 463 / VH-NSQ departed the town of Melbourne in Florida on delivery on June 21. Its delivery flight included stops in New York, Goose Bay Canada, Iceland, Germany, Greece and the UAE.

The aircraft was delivered to Northern Escape Collection, which operates a series of private lodges across Queensland.

“We are committed to providing our guests with luxury, once-in-a-lifetime experiences every time, where they can discover the diverse natural beauty of Queensland, including the reef, rainforest and the outback. Adding the jet transfer to the Northern Escape Collection, which is also serviced by our private helicopter fleet Nautilus Aviation, allows our guests to travel in style and comfort throughout their entire journey,” said Chris Morris, executive chairman, Morris Group, parent company of Northern Escape Collection.

Escape Collection has chosen Avcair to operate and manage the aircraft on its behalf. When the aircraft is not being used, Avcair will offer the aircraft on the charter market.

“Northern Escape Collection’s Phenom 300E brings to the Australian market a new, elegantly designed state-of-the-art aircraft that features advanced avionics and impressive operating economics,” said Michael Cooke, CEO of Avcair. “We look forward to operating the aircraft soon”.
