Embraer's Phenom 100 jet receives Australian type certificate

Embraer's Phenom 100 entry level executive jet received the type certificate, last July, from Australia's Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). This certification joins the Phenom 100's approval by Brazil's National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC) and the U.S.'s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), in December 2008, and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), in April 2009.

"It is with great satisfaction that we announce the certification of this outstanding aircraft, reinforcing Embraer's commitment to the Australian market," said Jos̩ Eduardo Costas, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Asia Pacific РExecutive Jets. "Our customers will have the convenience of being able to register their Phenom 100s in Australia."

Back in 2005, Embraer promised to design and build a revolutionary jet with premium comfort, outstanding performance, docile flying qualities, and low operating cost. Those goals were relentlessly pursued and the Phenom 100 not only met all original specification targets, but also surpassed several performance goals, including a maximum cruising speed of 390 knots (True Air Speed – KTAS), 10 knots faster than promised, and fuel consumption up to 3.6% better than initial estimates. External noise levels present a 33 EPNdB (Effective Perceived Noise in Decibels) margin over the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) stage IV requirements. The long interval between scheduled maintenance – 600 FH (Flight Hours) or 12 months – gives the Phenom 100 a substantial advantage over competitors by requiring only five scheduled maintenance stops in five years. Takeoff and climb performance is also better than expected. The baggage compartment that was the largest in the category became even larger, gaining 8 cubic feet (227 liters), from 45 cubic feet (1,274 liters) to 53 cubic feet (1,501 liters).
