Embraer's Phenom 300 earns Canadian type certificate

Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) granted a type certificate to Embraer for its Phenom 300 light jet. The Phenom 300, which received its initial certification by U.S. and Brazilian aviation authorities in 2009, is now certificated in more than 40 countries.

"Transport Canada's certification strengthens our position in Canada, a market which is already exhibiting strong potential for Embraer," said Bob Knebel, Vice President Sales for North America, Embraer Executive Jets. "We have delivered more than 300 Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 executive jets worldwide, 50% of which have gone to the North American market. The certification paves the way for even more success for this award-winning executive aircraft. The success of the Phenoms can be seen in the diversity of our customers, which include private individuals, corporations, universities, fractional ownership programs, charter operators, flying schools and motor racing executives."

The move comes as the Company adds a new seating configuration – with a two-place divan – which increases customer options and is in response to customer requests. Canada certificated the entry-level Phenom 100 in 2010.

The Phenom 300 light jet accommodates up to 11 occupants and is one of the fastest aircraft in the light jet category, reaching 521 mph (839 km/h, or 453 knots). It can fly at altitudes of up to 45,000 feet (13,716 meters) and has a range of 1,971 nautical miles (3,650 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, which means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from Toronto to Calgary and Vancouver to Toronto.
