EMBRAER EMB-500 PHENOM 100EV (2017-PRESENT)
BRIEF HISTORY – EMBRAER PHENOM 100EV
On July 27th, 2016 at EAA AirVenture, Embraer Executive Jets announced the release of their second variant of the, officially named EMB-500 line, dubbed the Phenom 100 in 2008. In 2013, Embraer debuted another upgraded variant, the Phenom 100E which increased cabin comfort, connectivity, as well as updated the braking system and includes multi-functional spoilers. On March 31st, 2017, the Phenom 100EV (standing for Enhanced Version) was delivered to its first customer in China. The Phenom 100 series has been the most popular Very Light Jet (VLJ) over the previous decade (2010-2020). Most of the Phenom 100’s over the past decade have been produced in Embraer’s licensed facility in Melbourne, FL. Thanks to its clean-sheet design, Embraer was able to perfectly encapsulate the essence of the private jet experience with the Phenom 100EV, pairing capabilities of a smaller, more nimble jet with a cabin size similar to a Super Light Jet’s cabin.2020
UPDATE TO PHENOM 100EV
In December of 2020, Embraer Executive Jets announced several updates. The most significant change is a new hardware upgrade that increases processing power and is equipped with higher-resolution screens. Phenom 100EVs will receive a new standard-equipment software load that includes emergency descent mode, graphical weight and balance, coupled go-around, takeoff and landing distance and performance calculations, and ADS-B In. Optional features include Garmin FliteCharts, IFR and VFR en route charts, and FAA Datacomm.
CABIN COMFORTS – PHENOM 100EV
The Phenom 100EV business jet silences even the toughest critics with a redesigned roomy, well-lit interior outfitted with cutting-edge technology and reimagined seating combinations for increased passenger comfort. It seats four passengers in its standard configuration (recommended) and even up to seven occupants when equipped with optional additional seating and flown single pilot! The cabin will have an average noise level around 80 dB. One of the quietest in its class.
COLLABORATION WITH BMWDesignworks
The Oval Lite interior, designed in conjunction with BMWDesignworks, provides increased head and leg room for passengers while also improving on ergonomics from the previous models. The 100EV has 8, massive 1.2 cu ft windows washing the cabin with ambient sunlight making the cabin feel more spacious. 6 of those windows are in the main cabin with two being in the aft of the aircraft in the partially “enclosed” lavatory. There is an “enclosed” lavatory in the rear of the cabin. Keep in mind the rigid door to fully enclose the lavatory is still an extra, all Phenom 100EV’s come equipped with a curtain. Embraer also added many more options for customization in regards to cabin finish and color options as they were quite limited in the 100 and 100E.The new Environmental Control System (ECS) regulates the cabin temperature, and for additional cost, the optional VIP panel enables you to set the cabin temperature right from your seat. The Phenom 100EV is equipped with the latest, most technologically advanced in-flight entertainment system available. It comprises a CD/DVD player, XM radio receiver, and auxiliary inputs to accommodate all of your tech needs while cruising at 41,000 ft.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – PHENOM 100EV
The EMB-500 business jet defied all expectations by combining intuitive avionics with envious performance, the Phenom 100 and 100E are powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F-E turbofan engines producing 1,695 lb of thrust, while the Phenom 100EV is rocketed to its cruising altitude by two modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines that each produce 1,730 lb of thrust. The engine is fitted with a dual-channel Full-Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) system.This increase in performance is thanks to more powerful engines as well as a significant weight reduction to the airframe. By doing this, Embraer significantly increased the already superior hot-and-high performance (hot temperatures / high altitude), while boasting an attractive, all new redesigned cabin bathed in natural light to open up an entirely new perspective from 41,000 ft.As the early Phenom 100s were occasionally weight restricted for high-density-altitude takeoffs, the crew were faced with a decision; restrict passenger loads or fuel. These trade-offs are mitigated somewhat by the EV’s increased thrust and weight reduction. One also cannot forget to mention the 100EV’s superior max cruise speed of 406 knots, compared to 389 knots for the 100 and 100E.With a significant weight reduction, Max Takeoff Weight (MTOW) increased as well as a notable thrust increase from 1,695 lb to 1,730 lb on each engine (15% increase, self-reported by Embraer). The additional thrust assists in increasing the 100EV’s superior max cruise speed of 406 knots, compared to 389 knots for the 100 and 100E as well as climbing to cruising altitude of 41,000 ft 8 minutes faster, from 33 minutes on the 100/100E down to 25 minutes for the 100EV. These upgrades also increased performance at hot-and-high (Hot-temperature and high-altitude) airports such as Moab, UT or Monticello, UT, reducing its take-off distance from 6,609ft down to 5,663ft! This opens up many more local airport options as well as provides you the additional peace of mind knowing your aircraft is over-equipped to out-perform its entire class in the hottest temperatures at the highest elevations. The aircraft meets ICAO Stage 4 noise standards and emits 10% less carbon dioxide (CO2) than comparable Entry Level Light Jets or Very Light Jets (VLJ).
FLIGHT DECK – EMBRAER’S LATEST AND GREATEST PHENOM 100EV
The cockpit of the Phenom 100EV is equipped with a Prodigy Touch avionics suite based off of the Garmin G3000. The avionics suite features centered touchscreens and integrates vertical navigation, GWX 70 with ground clutter suppression and turbulence detection.The cockpit is also equipped with three 12.4-inch interchangeable displays with responsive keys that expedite menu navigation. The intelligent system automation and Flight Management System (FMS) with graphical flight planning capabilities in an effort to minimize the pilot’s checklist even further. The flight deck is also equipped with an Integrated Electronic Standby Instrument (IESI), Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System (EICAS), charts and maps, a Synthetic Vision System (SVS), linked Vertical Navigation (VNAV), and Required Navigation Performance (RNP). Additionally, it features a Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) / Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV), Datalink via SATCOM, and a Central Maintenance Computer (CMC) for rapid fault location and isolation.
CHARTER THE PHENOM 100EV
With the Phenom 100EV, Embraer Executive Jets has solidified its spot in the Very Light Jet (VLJ) category. It truly redefined an entire class of aircraft, Entry Level Light Jets, which typically are viewed as small, cramped cabins, with no additional luxuries and a majority of the time, not even a lavatory or cool tech! With all the advancements and innovation Embraer has made on the Phenom 100 series, we are all very excited to see what it develops next! CharterJets Inc. features the newest and highest safety rated Phenom 100EV’s available. Reach out today to discuss your upcoming travel!
