Embraer’s Phenom 300/300E is the best selling light jet of the past decade; We look at its varied seating options
The Phenom 300 and its updated brother, the Phenom 300E, are the best selling light jet type in the past decade.
It is popular with individual owners, and also fractional share and charter fleet operators selling jet cards. It has a high resale value – if you can buy one. There are only 16 on the market. That’s a mere 3.6% of the fleet.
NetJets and Flexjet agree
The list of operators is a who’s who, including the industry’s biggest players. NetJets and Flexjet agree on few things. They both selected the Phenom 300 as their core light jet option.
