New hardware, software features
December 2, 2020
Embraer Executive Jets’ entry-level single-pilot twinjet, the Phenom 100EV, has received several upgrades to its Garmin G3000 Prodigy Touch avionics suite.
The first Phenom 100s went into service in 2008, followed by a steady progression of upgrades to the type. An increased payload came in 2012; new interiors in 2013; standard synthetic vision in 2015; and a faster, 406-knot max cruise speed with the Phenom 100EV in 2017.
