Embraer Phenom 300 Facts
Brazilian manufacturer Embraer’s Phenom 300 held the title of the best-selling light private jet in the world from 2011 to 2017, providing seating up to eight (although configurations include six and seven-seat plans) and extended range. The final numbers for 2019 haven’t been announced.
It is now succeeded by the Phenom 300E with advanced avionics and cabin systems, although both share the same dimensions.
