Gov't Ordered Four Planes For Official Transport
Embraer delivered the first Phenom 100 jet this week to

Pakistan, and it is also the first Phenom 100 to be operated by a

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.
