São José dos Campos, SP, Brazil – October 27, 2016 – The Embraer Phenom 100 EV will make its global debut at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), which takes place November 1-3 in Orlando, Florida. With a special livery, representing technological advancements, the aircraft will be on static display at Orlando Executive Airport, along with Embraer’s full portfolio of executive jets.
The Phenom 100 EV, which has already logged over 100 hours in its flight test campaign, is an evolution of the entry-level Phenom 100 business jet, featuring a new avionics suite with the Prodigy Touch flight deck, based on the Garmin G3000, and modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines. The new version offers more speed with superior hot-and-high performance. With even greater performance and operational capabilities, this aircraft preserves its recognition for low operating and maintenance costs. The Phenom 100 EV is scheduled to enter service in the first half of 2017.
Launched in July at the EAA AirVenture Fly-In and Convention, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Phenom 100EV will enjoy dual launch customers, each with unique operating requirements. Mexico’s Across, a premium business aviation services provider, will benefit from the aircraft’s hot-and-high performance out of its base at Toluca International Airport (TLC). Emirates Flight Training Academy, with its new world class training facility due to open later this year, addresses the industry’s growing demand for pilots. Emirates recently upgraded its earlier order for five Phenom 100s to Phenom 100EVs, becoming the first flight training organization in the world to train cadet pilots using this platform.
With the first delivery in December 2008, the Phenom 100 revolutionized the entry-level segment when it set new standards for comfort, performance, and operating costs. The Phenom 100 is considered an obvious choice by airlines for preparing cadets for multi-engine jet operations, as well as by owner-operators, corporate flight departments and leading fractional providers. As of today, close to 350 Phenom 100 jets are operating in 37 countries.

About the Phenom 100 EV
The Phenom 100 EV features modified Pratt & Whitney Canada PW617F1-E engines, with 1,730 pounds of thrust, reaching a 405 ktas high speed cruise and up to 15% more thrust at hot-and-high airports, which equates to more range and a faster time to climb. The aircraft has a four-occupant range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), with NBAA IFR reserves.
The pilot-friendly cockpit enables single-pilot operation, with situational awareness enhanced by the advanced man-machine interface of the touchscreen-controlled Prodigy Touch flight deck, based on the Garmin G3000, with larger HD displays, split screen capability, and a new weather radar.
The Phenom 100 EV is the evolution of the roomiest aircraft in its class, bringing interior enhancements, such as a new floor sill, featuring a straight line design to increase the aisle area, and relocated power outlets with USB chargers. The aircraft features eleven interior design collections, abundant natural light from large windows, even in the private rear lavatory, a feature typically only seen in larger aircraft, which is also the case of the refreshment center, the integrated air stair, and the largest baggage compartment in its class.
