Embraer Delivers Phenom 100 To Pakistan's Air Force

Gov't Ordered Four Planes For Official Transport

Embraer delivered the first Phenom 100 jet this week to Pakistan’s Air Force. The Pakistan government has acquired four of this aircraft model, which will be used to transport government officials of that country.

"Embraer is honored to enjoy the confidence of Pakistan's Government for operating our products," said Orlando José Ferreira Neto, Embraer Executive Vice President, Defense and Government Market. "The Phenom 100 is an excellent aircraft that meets a broad range of transportation demands and, with the way opened by the Pakistan Air Force on the international market, we are seeing a growing interest in this model in several other regions."

This is the first Embraer aircraft delivered to a customer in Pakistan, and it is also the first Phenom 100 to be operated by a nation's government. Embraer says the country's Air Force considered a variety of light jets before selecting the Phenom, weighing the decision on aspects such as performance, comfort, technology, acquisition price, and operating costs.

The Phenom 100 jet can accommodate up to eight occupants. Its range of 1,178 nautical miles, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from Islamabad to Karachi, or Katmandu, Nepal.

The jet was certified in December 2008.
