Embraer Phenom 100EV Makes EBACE Debut
Embraer will debut the Phenom 100EV business jet at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland, from May 29 to May 31. The entry-level Phenom 100EV, an evolution of the Phenom 100E, delivers improved performance with modified engines and a new avionics suite.
The evolution of Embraer’s very first clean-sheet-design business jet, which entered into service in 2008, is the result of continuous customer feedback and the Company’s commitment to continue delivering revolutionary aircraft with superior value to the market. The acclaimed Prodigy Touch flight deck, which was introduced in the market by the Phenom 300 light jet, is now featured on the entry-level Phenom 100EV. Pratt & Whitney Canada’s modified engines (PW617F1-E) offer even more thrust, which renders more speed with superior performance, especially in hot-and-high operations.
The Phenom 100EV’s outstanding hot-and-high performance is gaining traction among new and current customers with extra performance requirements. 14 Phenom 100EV have been delivered to date and there are more than 50 Phenom 100, Phenom 100E and Phenom 100EV in operation in 20 countries throughout Europe, Africa and The Middle East.
With over 350 aircraft flying in 30 countries, the Phenom 100 aircraft platform is renowned for its high utilization design and low operating and maintenance costs, among owner-pilots, corporations, charter and fractional operators. The aircraft is also considered ideal for preparing cadets for multi-engine jet operations and is in use by flight training academies worldwide, including the Finnish Aviation Academy, Emirates Flight Training Academy and Etihad Aviation Training.
The Phenom 100EV features modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines, with 1,730 pounds of thrust, reaching a 405 ktas high speed cruise and up to 15% more thrust at hot-and-high airports, which equates to more range and a faster time to climb. The aircraft has a four-occupant range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), with NBAA IFR reserves.
The pilot-friendly cockpit enables single-pilot operation, with situational awareness enhanced by the advanced man-machine interface of the touchscreen-controlled Prodigy Touch flight deck, based on the Garmin G3000, with larger HD displays, split screen capability, and a new weather radar.
The Phenom 100EV is the evolution of the roomiest aircraft in its class, bringing interior enhancements, such as a new floor sill, featuring a straight line design to increase the aisle area, and relocated power outlets with USB chargers. The aircraft features eleven interior design collections, abundant natural light from large windows, even in the private rear lavatory, a feature typically only seen in larger aircraft, which is also the case of the refreshment center, the integrated airstair, and the largest baggage compartment in its class.
