New cabin

“The Phenom 100EX is the result of continuous improvements over the years, based on customer feedback. The aircraft incorporates Embraer’s design DNA, which influenced the combination of cabin controls into technical panels stylish uppers, as well as seating design, increased use of more durable materials and tables flush with the walls to maximize workspace,” comments Embraer.

Fifth seat

The plane also includes interior upgrades, such as a fifth side-facing seat and a belted lavatory to increase passenger capacity. These interior features complement the OvalLite cross-section, which provides more head and legroom. The Phenom 100EX is the first in its class to be equipped with a Runway Overrun Warning and Awareness System (ROAAS), which acts during one of the most critical moments of flight to provide a clear picture of conditions planned landings.
