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.
The offer represents a bonus of up to $20,000
Dallas-based JetSuite is sweetening the deal for its SuiteKey jet card through the end of 2019.
At its entry-level $100,000 membership, both new customers and members who renew get a bonus of up to one hour.
For a $250,000 deposit, members get up to two bonus hours.
However, the biggest bonus provides up to three free hours on a deposit of $500,000, which would equate to about $20,000.

The revamped SuiteKey jet card program with fixed-rates and guaranteed availability is attracting national demand, says president Stephanie Chung
As Dallas-based JetSuite makes the turn into its second decade, its president Stephanie Chung says after a year on the job, she is ready to help lead the company into a future that looks to be focused on larger aircraft. It means paring down the Embraer Phenom 100 that helped launch the company. It recently stopped accepting new members and renewals for the type.
Chung said, “Our immediate goal is to become a dominant provider in the U.S. and to accomplish this, we will continue to add more 300s, as well as gradually lessen our footprint within the very light jet space.”
