EMBRAER was founded in 1969 when a team of military engineers presented their novel design

the “Bandeirante”, to the Brazilian President. The Brazilian President was so impressed that he contracted the Brazilian Air Force, led by Ozires Silva, to build 80 Bandeirante airplanes, 112 fighter jets, and assume development of the Ipanema agricultural airplane for the Ministry of Agriculture. More than 50 years later, they are the third largest manufacturer of airplanes, right behind Boeing and Airbus.

Embraer Commercial Aircraft

Embraer launched its first commercial product line in 1974 with a novel 30 seat pressurized twin turboprop feederliner, the EMB-120 "Brasilia”. The Brasilia was mainly operated in the United States and other nations in the Western Hemisphere. SkyWest Airlines was historically the largest operator of the Brasilia with over 62 in 2006 (Hardiman 2022). Embraer’s next major leap into commercial aviation was the development of the Embraer Regional Jet (ERJ) family in 1989. The ERJ family began with the ERJ 145, a 37 seat regional turbojet. Embraer went on to develop eight ERJ products, the 135, 145, 170, 175, 190, 195, 190-E2, 195-E2. Present day, Embraer has delivered almost 3000 ERJs that are still operated by more than 50 airlines worldwide. Embraer also designed and supports six military aircraft, including light attack fighter jets, basic trainers, an advanced attack trainer, and a high wing twin turbojet tactical transport aircraft.

Business Jets

The first business class configuration by Embraer was the Legacy 600 in 2000, a business jet variant of the Embraer Regional Jet (ERJ). Two years later, Embraer added the clean slates Legacy 450 and Legacy 500, and introduced a VIP version of the E190 known as the Lineage 1000. In October 2018 Embraer announced two new business jets,the Praetor 500 in the midsize cabin category,and the Praetor 600 in the super midsize category. All of the Embraer executive jet platforms are marvels of art and engineering, but no product pales in comparison to the presence and success of the Phenom 300.

The Most Versatile Light Jet to Ever Exist

Allow us to introduce the Phenom 300, the larger, faster, and even more capable upgrade of the Phenom 100. After more than 1000 deliveries, the Phenom series is now the world's best-selling light jet for the 11th consecutive year. The Phenom 300 is operated in 36 countries and accumulated 1.8 million flight hours in just 15 years of operation. For the light jet market, the newer Phenom 300E is without peer. The redesigned and improved Phenom 300E is the fastest and most versatile single-pilot business jet in operation. The Phenom 300E boasts a top speed of Mach 0.80, a high-speed cruise of 464 knots, and a range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves for five passengers. In addition, an avionics upgrade with features like predictive windshear, Emergency Descent Mode, PERF, TOLD, and FAA Datacom is also available. Perhaps one of the most impressive technological additions is the Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting system (ROAAS). ROAAS provides pilots with real time monitoring of kinetic energy and spatial orientation in effort to avoid overrunning a runway of intended landing (Skybrary 2023).

Bring your whole family

The days of excluding in-laws from family vacations because there’s “not enough room” are long gone. In addition to the comfort and luxury of the world’s most versatile light jet, the cabin boasts an astounding nine passenger seat capacity. Furthermore, the cabin offers a flushable lavatory with a drainable sink, exponentially increasing the quality of experience for longer flights. With best-in-class safety, comfort, technology, performance, and residual value, it is no wonder the Phenom 300 is the preferred light jet platform amongst aircraft owners worldwide.
