Embraer gains certification

EMBRAER has received both type and production certificates from Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Authority for the Phenom 300 Very Light Jet.  This milestone comes only 12 months after the first delivery of its smaller sister the Phenom 100.  Embraer says that the new aircraft has either met or succeeded its design targets.  The Phenom 300’s maximum range, originally designed to be 1,800nm (3,334km), has been extended to 1,971nm (3,650km) with six occupants and full reserves.  Runway requirement has been reduced dramatically and the aircraft now only requires a maximum runway length of 3,138ft (as against 3,700 previously), and 2,621ft for landing.  Operations at London City Airport are now a distinct possibility.  AERBT hopes to offer an impression of the Phenom 100 in an early 2010 edition. www.embraer.com
