Eagle Creek Takes Delivery Of Its First Embraer Phenom 100

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Eagle Creek Aviation Services, Inc. announced that it has taken delivery of the first of 17 Embraer Phenom 100s the company has ordered from the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer.

Eagle Creek is an authorized Embraer Phenom Service Center and has purchased a total of 21 Phenom 100 and 300 positions on behalf of its clients. Eagle Creek also provides acceptance and delivery services for Phenom position holders and offers the only TCAS I installation currently available for the Phenom 100.

“We are delighted to have taken delivery of our first Phenom 100,” said Matt Hagans, Eagle Creek’s CEO. “Embraer really hit the mark with this fantastic aircraft. Nothing matches the Phenom in terms of size, performance and economics. It clearly will be the market leader in this segment.”

“After personally flying 120 hours in various Phenoms and delivering several to the U.S. myself, it is exciting to take delivery of a Phenom 100 on behalf of one of our own clients. It has been a great four years working with the staff and management of Embraer in the U.S. and in Brazil,” Hagans added.

Eagle Creek’s client, aviation consultant Lou Meiners, was on hand in Brazil to take delivery of the airplane. “I have owned several airplanes over the years, but this is my first jet. The Phenom 100 is built like an airliner and is very spacious for this class of airplane,” said Meiners.
