When you need to take a short flight, an Embraer Phenom 100 charter is a great choice for you to arrive on time and on budget. Passengers and pilots alike love that this jet is one of the most spacious and advanced in its class.
When you look at this VLJ (very light jet), you’ll first notice the sleek design and stylish interior, but there’s so much more to this aircraft than aesthetics.
Here’s a closer look at the Phenom 100 charter and what makes it such a popular option among distinguished travelers.
About the Embraer Phenom 100 Charter
This compact light jet can help you get to and from your most important destinations on time and in style. Though there really isn’t such a thing as budget private air travel, this aircraft is about as close as you can get. You can expect high-performance without breaking the bank.
Since it first made its way to the retail aircraft scene in 2008, the Phenom 100 has become one of the most well-known and widely used jets for shorter distances.
If you’re taking short hops like New York to Boston or even slightly longer treks like Boston to D.C., this is the perfect aircraft for you. Notably, this VLJ almost has the same range as a light jet and can fit four passengers in the cabin with ease. Some configurations can fit up to six passengers, so talk to your charter broker about space requirements.
This jet offers a beautiful blend of performance and comfort, and is worth considering when planning your trip. It’s been a favorite of business travelers since its introduction, offering an easy go-to for business travel when you can’t afford for delays to slow you down.
Inside the Embraer Phenom 100 Charter
Step inside this beautifully designed cabin and your eyes will be drawn to its BMW interior. BMW DesignWorksUSA, an independent design firm owned by BMW, painstakingly designed the interior of the Phenom 100 to mirror the brand’s class and sophistication, and you’ll appreciate all the effort and detail that went into it. It’s decked out in upscale automotive-style accents, carefully placed LED lighting, and single-piece sidewalls and headlines. This company did an amazing job of achieving their goal to create a spacious cabin feel in a smaller footprint.
You’ll notice there are many amenities packed into this VLJ, including AC power outlets, retractable cup holders, small storage spaces, headset jacks, temperature control, cabin lighting, MP3 plugs and speakers, as well as audio on-demand satellite radio.
There are three different layouts available in the Phenom 100: four-place, four-place business, and forward air taxi seating that can seat 6 people. If you want cargo space in the cabin, there is a forward wardrobe for cargo, or if you would rather have a refreshment center, you can replace the wardrobe with the refreshment center. There’s also a large luggage space available between the aft and forward storage compartments.
Another nice feature is the individual passenger-pilot communication unit at each seat, as well as a laptop port.
An onboard lavatory offers added comfort, lit by two windows and complemented by toiletry storage.
Performance and Capabilities
Now that you’ve heard about the comfort and amenities you can experience in the Phenom 100, let’s talk about the capabilities this jet has.
This VLJ offers a decent range of 1,178 nautical miles, and you’ll be able to get to your location quickly with the ability to travel at speeds of 448 miles per hour.
The Phenom 100 has an all-aluminum design and is certified to fly as high as 41,000 feet. The climbing rate on this VLJ is impressive at 3,424 feet per minute. Combined, the high flying altitude and quick climbing allows the pilot to help you get a smoother flight when dealing with turbulence.
This jet is the perfect aircraft because of its ability to take off from and land on shorter runways. This is one reason why you’ll see it on the runways in smaller towns or remote locations.
The Phenom 100 has a low straight wing with a slight sweep. A T-tail and two Pratt and Whitney PW 617F-E engines are equipped with full authority digital control. Passengers can enjoy peace of mind when landing, thanks to the anti-skid and brake-by-wire systems through the jet’s trailing link landing gear.
Last but not least, the Phenom 100 Prodigy flight deck is made up of the Garmin G1000 avionics suite which ensures a safe ride to the destination. From tip to tail, this power-packed aircraft is one that’s often asked for by name, and once you fly on it for yourself, you’ll see why.
