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.
NetJets may be ubiquitous with the concept of fractional ownership, and by far the dominant player in the market, but the big question remains, is the unit of Berkshire Hathaway worth a premium?
(Updated April 23, 2022) – There’s no question NetJets is the biggest player in the private aviation sector, three times bigger than Directional Aviation’s Flexjet, the second-largest player. It’s also one of the most purchased programs by the over 3,000 subscribers to Private Jet Card Comparisons. And since I get to talk to you every day, it’s safe to say I have more day-in-day-out contact with private aviation consumers than any other journalist. And if there is one company that comes up more than others, it’s NetJets.
