The Embraer Phenom 100 is a very light jet developed by Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. It has been type certificated as the Embraer EMB-500,[2] with 300 units delivered by 2014.[3]

Design[edit]

It has a capacity for four passengers in its normal configuration, but it can carry up to six passengers with a single crew, with optional side facing seat and belted toilet. It has a maximum flying range of 1,178 nmi (2,182 km) with four occupants and NBAA IFR Reserves. As of 1 January 2009, its price was US$ 3.6 million,[4] with the first aircraft delivered in December 2008.[5]

Powerplant[edit]

The aircraft is fitted with two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617-F turbofan engines rated at a take-off thrust of 1,695 lb to ISA+10. The engines have dual full authority digital engine control (FADEC). An automatic performance reserve (APR) feature boosts engine output to 1,777 lb in the event of engine failure on take-off.[6]
