Launched in 2007 as a major competitor for Cessna’s now discontinued CJ1+, Embraer’s Phenom 100 is a lean, mean, high-tech beauty with a spacious, comfortable cabin, a decent range, and enviable speed. A departure from Embraer’s traditional philosophy—to outdo the competition by offering a world-class jet at a much lower price—the Phenom 100 offers an undeniably breathtaking light jet, and with the sticker shock to match. Intended for operation by a single pilot, the 100 seats up to eight passengers in a high density configuration. Powered by two rear-mounted Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617-F turbofan engines, the 100 achieves a respectable range of 1,178 nautical miles. The revolutionary Prodigy cockpit delivers one of the most powerful integrated avionics systems in the executive jet industry and furnishes pilots with a user-friendly array of flight management systems.
