Embraer Executive Jets has celebrated the delivery of the 500th Phenom family jet.
The delivery, made just five-and-a-half years after the entry into service of the first aircraft in 2009, was of a Phenom 300 to Prime Fraction Club, a fractional ownership company in Brazil.
“The delivery of 500 Phenom jets in just over five years of operation validates our commitment to offer the market differentiating products and excellence in services,” President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets, Marco Túlio Pellegrini said in a statement. “The Phenom family was designed to exceed all expectations from our customers, and we are privileged to deliver this commemorative aircraft to Prime Fraction Club.”
The Phenom range comprises the 100E and the 300, and Phenoms are in service in 37 countries with 400 customers.
