Embraer’s Phenom 300 Continues Its Reign


The light jet was the top-selling business twinjet for the past four years

Following the release of the 2023 year-end delivery numbers by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association, Embraer announced that for the 12th consecutive year, its Phenom 300 was the best-selling jet in its class, with 63 of the series delivered last year. It was also the top-selling twinjet for the fourth year in a row.

Over the past decade, the Brazil-based airframer has delivered more than 730 of the light jets, with the fleet surpassing 2 million flight hours. Its U.S. customers flew their Phenom 300s more than 360,000 times last year.

With its high-speed cruise of 464 knots, the Phenom 300 is also the fastest light jet in production, and it has a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles with NBAA IFR reserves.

Its avionics include the first Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System to be certified for a business jet as well as other innovative features such as an Autothrottle, Coupled Go-around, and Emergency Descent Mode.

“For more than a decade the aircraft has earned well-deserved recognition and continues to excel in terms of performance, technology, comfort, and support,” said Michael Amalfitano, CEO of the OEM’s executive jet division. “With our ongoing dedication to our loyal customers, we will continue to develop the program based on customer feedback, industry trends, and new technologies.”
