The Embraer Phenom 100 is considered by many to be the best super light jet in production right now. Produced by arguably the best-selling jet manufacturer of the 21st century, the Phenom 100 has been able to combine Embraer’s experience in producing larger jets and successfully reproduce it into a smaller package in the form of the Phenom 100 and the 300. The Phenom 100 was part of a very significant change in the philosophy of Embraer. When the aircraft was first announced in 2005, Embraer was known as a manufacturer of bigger jets. This was the first time that they would be venturing into the super light jet space. For many, it was difficult to adjust to the fact that a manufacturer producing larger jets would really be able to understand the needs of the customers of the super light category.
However, when the Phenom 100 first went into production in 2008, the consensus was rewritten. Not only had Embraer been able to completely nail down the concept of the Phenom 100, but also had redefined what people would come to expect from a super light jet. The concept was so successful that Embraer would decide to produce another jet that was larger in terms of size but was still firmly in the light jet category. This would end up being called the Embraer Phenom 300, a jet that has been wildly successful in the private jet charter business.
Private Jet Charter for Phenom 100
When it comes to chartering a private jet, the Phenom 100 is one of the most popular choices in the market. There are several different reasons for that. The first is simply the fact that the jet is extremely well-equipped for its class. In a normal configuration, there is a passenger capacity of 4 people. This might not seem like much, but the Phenom 100 can actually seat 7 passengers in another configuration as well, giving it a passenger capacity that most other super light jets cannot match. When it comes to the price of the aircraft, you can expect to pay around $4 million to $4.1 million for the Phenom 100. This is another reason why the Phenom 100 has been so successful, it has a price tag that is considerably lower compared to other jets in its class, coming in nearly $2 million lower than the Citation M2 for example.
The charter cost for a Phenom 100 per hour will cost you around $2500 to $3000. When it comes to the private jet charter of jets, it does not get a lot cheaper than this. The only way that you can pay less is to charter a turboprop, which will be considerably lower, however, the comfort of a turboprop will in no way be able to match the luxury that a jet will be able to provide. However, if you want to take more people than the Phenom 100 and still consider the cost to be a big factor in the overall decision-making process, then a larger turboprop will be a great option.

Interior of the Phenom 100
When you step inside the jet, the first thing that you notice is how truly compact the jet is from the outside as well as the inside. If you’ve ever ridden with a larger private jet before, you will notice the difference. The cabin length from the inside measures around 11 feet in total. The width is a pretty surprising 5.1 feet, which is quite good. If you are a tall person, then you will face a bit of an issue while walking around the jet. The cabin height of 4.92 feet is definitely pretty normal for a jet in its class. What is interesting is that you can quite clearly see the influence of BMW everywhere inside the interior. This is due to the fact that BMW DesignworksUSA did the interior design for the Phenom 300, incorporating a lot of their own signature design features into the mix. The design has the iconic German level of efficiency to it, with form and function both being extremely important to the design of the aircraft.
Viewed from the outside, the jet can sometimes feel a little bit squashed due to its size, a quality that is quite common in jets of this size. However, when it comes to the Phenom 100, this problem has actually been handled quite elegantly, with the exterior being superbly handled to make it a treat to look at. The body of the aircraft is quite square, considering that the body of the jet is about 42 feet long and the wingspan comes in at around the same number. The height is 14.24 feet coupled with a very respectable baggage capacity of over 61 cubic feet. The range of the jet is about 1320 nautical miles and the top speed comes in at Mach 0.7, making it one of the fastest jets in its class.
This is the Embraer Phenom 100, an idea that was created out of the desire of a beast being offered in a miniature size. Since its introduction, it has had a very successful run and has become one of the best-selling light jets in the world.
