Embraer Rolls Out Phenom 300
Embraer rolled out the first Phenom 300 light jet and ground testing will begin shortly in advance of its first flight. Work has already begun on the second Phenom 300. "We are thrilled to see the Phenom 300 become a reality," said Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets. "The Phenom 300... will set a new standard for the light jet category." The 300 was rolled out 10 months after the smaller Phenom 100 was completed.
The first Phenom 300 was started about a year ago and 400 engineers have been working on the project. No date has been finalized for the first flight.
