Embraer Executive Jets and Flight Options are marking the 100th delivery of the light Phenom 300 to the Cleveland, OH-based fractional jet ownership company.
“The delivery of the 100th Phenom 300 light jet will be a major milestone for Embraer Executive Jets since it comes less than three years of this award-winning aircraft entering service,” said Ernest Edwards, President, Embraer Executive Jets. “We are pleased and honored to have Flight Options as our partner for this momentous occasion.”
“On behalf of Flight Options, I would like to congratulate Embraer on the delivery of its 100th Phenom 300 jet, a milestone which reflects the appeal of this aircraft’s combination of comfort, performance, sound economics and new-generation technology,” said Michael J. Silvestro, Chief Executive Officer of Flight Options, the second-largest company in the private jet travel industry. “We are proud to be the world’s largest operator of the Phenom 300, which is featured in our enormously successful Fractional & Jet Membership Club programs. With a firm order of 100 Phenom 300s, we look forward to this aircraft serving as the foundation of our fleet for years to come.”
The delivery of the 100th Phenom 300 is part of a firm order for 100 aircraft plus 50 options placed by Flight Options in 2007. The company, the second largest fractional ownership operation in the U.S., has taken delivery of 21 Phenom 300s to date and also operates the Legacy 600 in its fleet.
