The Phenom 100, and its upgraded versions, are the Citation Mustang’s main rivals in the Very Light Jet category. It has rapidly taken the lead in this category and has become a must-have in the private jet rental market.
This private jet combines a modern, streamlined design. Embraer wanted to meet the demands of high-end customers in terms of functionality, design quality and ergonomics. Passengers benefit from large windows that flood the cabin with natural light, creating a warm and pleasant atmosphere. The oval-shaped aisle adds a touch of elegance to the interior space. The Phenom 100 cabin can accommodate 4 to 5 passengers in a comfortable layout. The rear toilet area does not encroach on the size of the cargo hold, which can accommodate around 2m³ of luggage (i.e.: around 5 suitcases).
Despite its classification as a Very Light Jet, the Phenom 100 makes no compromises on performance. Powered by twin engines, it reaches an optimum cruising speed of 750 km/h, enabling it to cover a range of over 2,000 km. Its ability to fly at altitudes of over 12,400 m makes it easier to avoid adverse weather conditions and reduce turbulence, ensuring a comfortable flight for passengers. More recent versions, such as the E and EV models, have made further improvements, notably in terms of cabin soundproofing and smoother braking, enhancing on-board comfort. In addition to its performance, its relatively low operating costs make it an attractive choice for short-haul private jet travel.
