Executive AirShare takes delivery of another Phenom 300
Executive AirShare (EAS) has taken delivery of its 30th Embraer Phenom 300 jet. The delivery ceremony took place December 17 at Embraer’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil.
EAS was the first to operate both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 under Part 135 and Part 91k operations. Today, Executive AirShare operates 50 aircraft in its fractional and managed aircraft fleet. EAS serves more than 230 customers in the Central US and Great Lakes regions.
This Phenom 300 is the final aircraft EAS will take delivery of out of Brazil; future deliveries will be taken from Embraer Executive Jets’ worldwide headquarters in Melbourne, FL.
“As a tribute to EAS’s partnership with Embraer over the last eight years, this aircraft bears a special livery to honour the country of Brazil and the people who have built Executive AirShare’s latest addition to our fleet of aircraft.”
Keith Plumb, CEO of Executive AirShare said: “As a tribute to EAS’s partnership with Embraer over the last eight years, this aircraft bears a special livery to honor the country of Brazil and the people who have built Executive AirShare’s latest addition to our fleet of aircraft. We will fly it proudly.”
“The Phenom 300 has commercial aircraft DNA. It perfectly aligns with our vision and what is best for our shareowners – delivering optimal passenger capacity, range for typical trips and our own repair station that maintains the highest reliability and availability,” added Plumb.

This aircraft will have a livery in keeping with others in the EAS fleet except the paint scheme includes colours from the Brazilian flag and the tail includes both the Brazilian and American flags.
Executive AirShare placed a new firm order for five Phenom 300s in 2015. The first has been received, this December delivery constitutes the second, and three remain. In addition, EAS has options for five more.
These orders highlight EAS’s substantial investment with Embraer. EAS has added $96.1 million worth of aircraft in the last three years alone.
