Embraer offers increased payload on Phenom 100
Embraer Executive Jets announced at the NBAA in Orlando that it is now offering an optional increase in Maximum Zero Fuel Weight (MZFW) for the Phenom 100 for those requiring a higher payload capacity.
“These changes provide greater flexibility for operators,” said Luciano Castro, Embraer vice president, Programs – Executive Jets. “The 330-pound increase in MZFW payload enables operators of the Phenom 100 to carry even more payload and is particularly interesting for those flying heavy loads in high-density configurations such as aircraft equipped with the fifth seat and the belted lavatory.”
“This is an important step for Embraer Executive Jets,” said said JetSuite founder and CEO Alex Wilcox, who operates a large fleet of Phenom 100s. “This is more great news from Embraer Executive Jets. It shows Embraer listens to customers to develop continual improvements that increase the competitiveness of their aircraft. This increase in payload capacity increases the capability of the Phenom 100 and means JetSuite can provide better service to members and clients, and that is very important to me.”
The optional MZFW increase is already available for new aircraft and will be available shortly for retrofit via Service Bulletin.
