Embraer Services & Support has completed the first upgrade of a Phenom 300 light business jet with a two-person divan. The divan allows an increase in cabin passenger capacity to 11 occupants, the highest in its class. The announcement was made at the Embraer Executive Operators Conference, in Austin Texas, a joint event hosted by Embraer Services & Support and the Embraer Jet Owners Association.
The first upgrade was completed at Embraer’s Customer Service Center in Sorocaba, Brazil, through the implementation of a service bulletin, which is now available and applicable to the entire global fleet of more than 430 Phenom 300 in operation in about 30 countries.
The divan, positioned at the front of the cabin facing the entrance and the refreshment center, was already available as an option in one of three cabin layouts in new Phenom 300 just as it is in the new Phenom 300E, which entered service in the first quarter of this year. Developed by maintenance engineers and technicians, the divan upgrade is being made available to Phenom 300 customers at all 70 owned and authorized service centers worldwide.
