|Embraer announced the first delivery of its new, enhanced Phenom 300E — a long-range, single-pilot business jet, capable of reaching Mach 0.80 ― to Texas law firm Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law, P.C. The firm, which also owns a Phenom 100EV, took delivery of the enhanced Phenom 300E last week during a ceremony at Embraer’s Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Fla. |
“This milestone delivery to our friends at Dunham & Jones is a testament to our ongoing commitment to providing the ultimate customer experience in business aviation,” said Michael Amalfitano, president & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “We are honored to help them grow their Embraer fleet with the world’s best-selling light jet for eight years straight, which has now been even further enhanced in terms of its technology, comfort and performance to ensure its market dominance in the industry.”
“Our clients rely on Dunham & Jones attorneys for personalized, one-on-one attention, and business aviation is the conduit to make that possible,” said Paul Dunham, principal, Dunham & Jones, Attorneys at Law, P.C. “The speed, operating cost, and comfortable cabin pressurization of the new, enhanced Phenom 300E were certainly distinguishing factors in our selection process, as was our exceptional experience with the Phenom 100EV.”
The aircraft received technology enhancements, including an avionics upgrade, which includes a runway overrun awareness and alerting system (ROAAS) ― the first technology of its kind to be developed and certified in business aviation ― predictive windshear, Emergency Descent Mode, PERF, TOLD, and FAA Datacom, among others. The Phenom 300E also features 4G connectivity via Gogo AVANCE L5.
Embraer says other new features include a quieter cabin, more legroom in the cockpit, and a new premium interior option — the Bossa Nova edition. In terms of performance the company says the aircraft is capable of reaching Mach 0.80. Embraer is promising high-speed cruise of 464 knots, and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves.
