BRIEF HISTORY – PHENOM 300E
EMBRAER | EMB-505 | PHENOM 300E (2018-2020)
In 2017, Embraer Executive Jets announced an upgraded version of their number one selling Super Light Jet, the Phenom 300 with the Phenom 300E, “E’ for enhanced. On the outside, the aircraft appears almost identical to its predecessor, the 300. However, virtually nothing in the original Phenom 300 cabin remains or has been vastly redesigned. Customer feedback informed Embraer that, while customers lauded the performance of the 300, the cabin and cockpit required some more attention, resulting in the birth of the “E” model.While there were a couple items to redesign, there were a lot of things right with it, such as its performance. Embraer preserved all the best aspects of the 300’s performance, which means the 300E is equally as capable as the Phenom 300. The upgraded Phenom 300E was delivered in 2018 and continued its success in the market until 2020 before another version would be released.
CABIN COMFORTS – PHENOM 300E
Embraer completely redesigned the interior ushering in a new level of luxury to this spacious and elegant cabin with diamond stitched, multi-tone upholstery with accents on the seats adding an extra splash of color to the cabin. The redesigned chairs have retractable armrests and thigh supports, as well as tracks that allow the chairs to swivel away from the side walls, providing additional shoulder room for each passenger. Thanks to the retractable armrest, the Phenom 300E’s aisle is 3 inches wider compared to the original 300. The all new, redesigned interior includes upgrades to the Lufthansa Technik nice-HD cabin management system such as proximity-activated controls, adjustable lighting, touchscreen monitors, and Embraer’s unique flush gaspers. Multiple personalization zones, an upgraded cabin management system that integrates portable devices, and wireless audio/video streaming all contribute to the interior upgrades that make the 300E much more comfortable and pleasing to fly in.
FLIGHT DECK – PHENOM 300E
Pilots will love the updated avionics suite in the Phenom 300E. It is equipped with the Garmin-G3000-based Prodigy Touch. It was the first aircraft to fly with Garmin’s innovative touchscreen technology, which was built from the ground up with the single-pilot operations in mind (although always two pilots with CharterJets). The 300E retains three panel displays with Prodigy Touch, but they have increased to 14.1 inches.Many of the traditional push buttons and twist knobs beneath the center panel have been merged into a pair of 5.7-inch high-resolution touchscreen controls that control the avionics, intercom, transponder, checklists, and all flight-plan-entry tasks. Both touchscreens include a tuning knob as a backup to the displays. The touchscreens utilize icons to expedite the pilot’s search for the proper menu, which is especially critical for solo pilots. Even flight planning has shifted to a graphical interface, in order to reduce workload for a busy pilot. The outfitted touch screens are easy to split to quickly add supporting information.
INCREASED FUNCTIONALITY ON GROUND – PHENOM 300E
Embraer’s Phenom 300E was upgraded to include the latest and most innovative technology on the market. To operate all of these power-hungry systems, the 300E allows pilots to run the right engine on the ground as a pseudo-auxiliary power unit. Starting the right engine consumes around 225 pounds of fuel per hour, and it can power the cabin’s lighting, environmental systems, and avionics. Embraer states that the capability to use the right engine as an APU will require only an update to the aircraft’s flight manual. Best of all, it will be a retrofit option for any Phenom 300 aircraft now in service.
CHARTER A PHENOM 300E
After less than two years on the market, in true Embraer fashion, they announced in 2020 another upgrade to the Phenom 300E, the 2020 Phenom 300E which focused more on performance than cabin amenities. CharterJets, Inc. features the newest and highest safety rated Phenom 300E’s available. Reach out today to discuss your upcoming travel!
