Melbourne, Florida, February 22, 2023 – For the 11th consecutive year, Embraer’s Phenom 300 series has become the world’s best-selling light jet, according to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). Embraer delivered 59 Phenom 300 series light jets in 2022 to achieve this milestone, and to date, the series has accrued more than 700 deliveries.

The Phenom 300 series is in operation in 36 countries and has accumulated nearly one million, eight hundred thousand flight hours.

“It’s no coincidence that the Phenom 300 is once again the best-selling light jet in the industry,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “For 11 consecutive years, it has continued its strong momentum in the market and outperformed our loyal customers—whether through the best-in-class range and speed or by offering the highest residual value of any aircraft in the market. This distinction is a true testament to Embraer’s ability to deliver the ultimate experience to its customers through truly innovative aircraft.”

The Phenom 300E sets the highest standard of excellence in the light jet category. In terms of performance, the new, enhanced Phenom 300E is even faster, capable of reaching Mach 0.80, becoming the fastest single-pilot jet in production, and able to deliver a high-speed cruise of 464 knots and a five-occupant range of 2,010 nautical miles (3,724 km) with NBAA IFR reserves.
