NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway company and the leader in private aviation worldwide, was delivered the first of up to 125 Phenom 300 light jets by Embraer Executive Jets.

The delivery is the result of a partnership signed in October 2010 to develop the NetJets Signature Series Phenom 300.

“The NetJets delivery is a significant milestone in the Phenom 300 program,” said President of Embraer Executive Jets, Ernest Edwards. “NetJets’ US $1 billion order came just a year after the aircraft entered service. It was a significant validation that Embraer Executive Jets had delivered to the market an aircraft that meets NetJets increasingly demanding requirements for safety, comfort, economics, performance and reliability. We are especially pleased that we will begin producing the NetJets’ Signature Series Phenom 300s on the Melbourne production line in 2014.”

NetJets specified an aircraft that features advanced technologies to ensure maximum safety, reliability and operating efficiency while maintaining supreme cabin comfort, advanced inflight entertainment systems and custom cabin design. The newly designed jet will fit in with the rest of NetJets’ 700 light, midsize and large-cabin aircrafts.

“We are pleased to partner with Embraer to deliver our customers the NetJets Signature Series Phenom 300, an outstanding light-cabin jet designed exclusively for NetJets,” said NetJets Chairman and CEO Jordan B. Hansell. “The high-performance aircraft is ideally suited to our customers’ needs for safety, reliability, interior comfort and operating efficiency. The addition of the Signature Series Phenom 300 will expand the unparalleled offerings and capabilities of the NetJets global fleet.”

Seating up to seven passengers, the aircraft features a full refreshment center and custom cabin amenities like advanced inflight entertainment systems, WiFi, and a fully enclosed restroom.

The light Phenom 300 is the roomiest in its class and has the best climb and field performance for any light jet. With 15% lower operating costs, the Phenom 300 sets a new standard for light business jets. It can fly at an altitude of up to 45,000 feet and has a range of 1,971 nautical miles, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, meaning the aircraft could fly nonstop from New York to Dallas or Houston to Los Angeles.
