Embraer today announced a new autothrottle feature that will be available for the Phenom 300E aircraft. The optional feature is set to enhance the already single-pilot-friendly cockpit of the Phenom 300E, which includes the highly advanced Prodigy Touch based on Garmin G3000, further enhancing the aircraft’s operational capabilities.
Pilots will be able to enjoy a more automated and intuitive flying experience through the autothrottle’s advanced automation technology, which will assist in throttle control during various phases of flight. For passengers, this translates to even greater comfort in the cabin. The feature will be available as an optional item for new Phenom 300E aircraft, in the third quarter of 2024. Embraer is also committed to supporting in-service aircraft via a service bulletin (SB) available from the fourth quarter of 2024, for aircraft that have received factory-incorporated provisions.
“We are excited to introduce autothrottle to the Phenom 300E’s avionics suite. It is another example of Embraer’s mindset of continued improvement, listening to customers feedback and elevating an industry-leading product even further. Innovations like this enhance the experience and deliver even more value to operators. And that is why an aircraft like the Phenom 300E continues to offer the ultimate experience in its category,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
With this improvement, the Phenom 300 series continues to lead the way in performance, technology, and comfort. The world’s best-selling light jet for 11 years in a row, it is also the most-flown private jet in the USA—with over 700 units in operation and over 2 million flight hours logged. The aircraft is capable of reaching Mach 0.80 and offers unmatched avionics—including the industry-first Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System (ROAAS), Emergency Descent Mode, coupled go-around, and more.
