Embraer Executive Jets delivered 53 Phenom 300 and Phenom 300E light jets in 2018, according to a report issued by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA).
This is the seventh consecutive year that the Phenom 300 achieves this mark, having accrued more than 490 deliveries since entering the market in December 2009.
Originally launched in 2005, the Phenom 300 has sustained more than half of the light jet market share since 2012.
The aircraft is in operation in more than 30 countries and has accumulated more than 780,000 flight hours. Embraer is continuously investing in the competitiveness of the Phenom 300 with enhancements to its comfort, technology and operational efficiency.
In October 2017, the new Phenom 300E was announced and entered service just five months later, in March 2018, and it is the only Phenom 300 model available to be acquired.
The Phenom 300E is also the fastest light jet, having established several speed records with the National Aeronautic Association and the Federation Aeronautique Internationale.
