Phenom 100 Executive Jet certified by EASA

Embraer’s Phenom 100 entry-level executive jet has achieved European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification for day and night operations – visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR), reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM), and flight into known icing conditions. The aircraft had already received certification from the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

“We are honoured to receive EASA certification for the Phenom 100 on schedule, confirming the aircraft has met or surpassed all original specification targets, and opening the way for the first deliveries in the European Union,” said Maurício Almeida Filho, Embraer’s vice president, programs – executive jets.

Some of the capabilities of the aircraft were exceeded, including a maximum cruising speed of 390kts (true air speed), 10kts faster than promised; and fuel consumption up to 3.6% better than initial estimates. The baggage compartment gained 8ft³ (227 litres) of space, going from 45ft³ (1,274 litres) to 53ft³ (1,501 litres).

Developed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the Phenom 100 Executive Jet was introduced by Embraer in 2005, and accommodates four passengers in the club seat configuration.
