Embraer has received Type Certification (TC) from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), for the Phenom 300 light jet to operate in the country.
First certified in December 2009 by Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil – ANAC) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Phenom 300 is now accepted in almost 40 countries including Indonesia, Austria, Denmark, France, Morocco, the United Kingdom, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates, amongst others.
“This certification extends the acceptance of the Phenom 300 program across the globe and strengthens our portfolio of product offerings to customers in Asia Pacific,” said Jose Eduardo Costas, Embraer Vice President for Marketing & Sales, Asia Pacific – Executive Jets. “A truly exceptional jet, the Phenom 300 is extremely well suited to many environments in Asia Pacific including Australia’s vast and varied terrain. It is designed for outstanding runway performance including hot and high conditions, takeoff from short runways, can climb directly to 45,000 ft (13,716 meters) in only 26 minutes, and combines this power with excellent fuel efficiency for enhanced performance and utility.”
