All About Embraer’s Phenom 100EX

The Brazilian company claims the aircraft is the most efficient entry-level jet on the market.

Embraer Executive Jets has completely revamped the cabin of its entry-level Phenom and added more cockpit safety systems while still maintaining its $4.995 million list price and shaving 190 pounds of interior weight. Now known as the Phenom 100EX, the light twinjet is the latest to incorporate Embraer’s design DNA, including upper tech panels, wider seats, increased use of more sustainable materials, and flush-to-the-wall tables. It also makes standard the previously optional side-facing fifth seat and a belted lavatory.

The flight deck was enhanced by adding more pilot legroom and an open-concept cockpit for easier communication within the cabin. In addition, a Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System (ROAAS) has been added to the Phenom 100EX’s Garmin G3000 avionics system, making it the first light jet with this feature.
