The series, launched in 2008, now has more than 400 aircraft operating worldwide with customers including the RAF, Etihad and the Finnish Aviation Academy. According to makers, the newest addition to the series delivers superior cabin comfort, operational versatility and safety enhanced pilot-centric avionics.
“We are proud to announce the Phenom 100EX—an aircraft designed to experience excellence with superior comfort and disruptive technology that enhances safety,” said Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “This product reimagines the entry-level flight experience, offering enhanced comfort, empowering pilots, and enriching journeys to deliver more value to our customers.”
The aircraft incorporates Embraer’s Design DNA, this influenced the combining of cabin controls into upper tech panels, as well as the seat design, increased use of more sustainable materials and flush-to-the-wall tables that expand the workspace, said Embraer.

The cockpit is equally considerate with further pilot legroom provided by extended seat tracking and an open-concept cockpit.
In addition to the reimagined cabin, the aircraft boasts enhanced pilot-centric avionics as part of the Prodigy Touch, based on the Garmin 3000. It is also the first in its class to feature a Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System (ROAAS), said Embraer.
