The Phenom 300 receives Type Certification in Australia

Embraer has received Type Certification (TC) from Australia's Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), for the Phenom 300 light jet to operate in the country.

First certified in December 2009 by Brazil's National Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil – ANAC) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Phenom 300 is now accepted in almost 40 countries including Indonesia, Austria, Denmark, France, Morocco, the United Kingdom, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates, amongst others.

"This certification extends the acceptance of the Phenom 300 program across the globe and strengthens our portfolio of product offerings to customers in Asia Pacific," said Jose Eduardo Costas, Embraer Vice-President for Marketing & Sales, Asia Pacific – Executive Jets. "A truly exceptional jet, the Phenom 300 is extremely well suited to many environments in Asia Pacific including Australia's vast and varied terrain. It is designed for outstanding runway performance including hot and high conditions, takeoff from short runways, can climb directly to 45,000 ft (13,716 meters) in only 26 minutes, and combines this power with excellent fuel efficiency for enhanced performance and utility."

Certified to fly at a maximum operating altitude of 45,000 ft (13,716 meters), the Phenom 300 is powered by two Pratt and Whitney PW535-E engines with 3,360 lb thrust each and is one of the fastest aircraft in the light jet category, reaching 521 mph (839 km/h, or 453 knots – KTAS). Its range of 1,971 nautical miles (3,650 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of connecting all of Australia; from Perth to Melbourne, Darwin to Brisbane, and even Sydney to Wellington, in New Zealand.

Launched in 2005 at the same time as its entry-level sibling – the Phenom 100 – close to 250 Phenom family aircraft are in operation today. In 2010, 26 Phenom 300's were delivered, increasing the jet's presence, worldwide. In Asia Pacific, it is welcome in Indonesia and now, Australia.
