FeelThere’s new release, Embraer Phenom 100, is expected to uphold the company’s reputation for designing top quality products.

Embraer Phenom 100

The Embraer Phenom 100 is a small jet aircraft manufactured by Embraer S.A., a Brazilian aircraft manufacturer that produces executive, commercial and military aircraft. The aircraft has the capacity to carry 4-6 passengers with a single crew.

Two Pratt and Whitney Canada PW617-F turbofan engines that are mounted at the rear power the aircraft. The aircraft has an automatic performance reserve (APR) feature that can increase engine output in the engine fails during takeoff. The aircraft has a maximum flying range of about 1,178 nmi (2,182 km). The first Embraer Phenom 100 was delivered in 2008, and to date, there have been 240 deliveries. The aircraft’s current price tag is US$ 3.6 million.

The aircraft is operated by many private individuals, companies, military operators, and charter operators. Like other light jets, the Embraer Phenom I00 is popular for its benefits, including lower operating costs and ability to operate from short runways.

Reviews

Since this is a new release, there aren’t enough reviews to have a balanced assessment of this product.

One user, David Armour, posted this review on the FS Pilot Shop Website:

I have only owned this aircraft for a couple of days but I have a lot of reservations about it. First of all, it is promoted as an easy aircraft to just get in and fly. Not so, as the 34 page manual might suggest. Even starting the aircraft with it's engines already running, the glass cockpit (wide) is very hard to read, (HD 23" monitor at 1920 x 1080). The autopilot is unnecessarily complicated and takes a lot of reading to understand. The audio warnings will drive you crazy as well, screaming away at the most trivial error. Probably realistic but not what you would expect in a jump in and fly mode. You can turn the warnings off. The aircraft flies well but no better than many of the freeware aircraft available in this class. This aircraft may be a good buy for $10 to $15 but way overpriced at $35.

I purchased this aircraft some months ago & paid more than $35. I notice that this version still had the ridiculous reflections of the pilot on the front windscreen which only serves to limit the view of the scenery, which we all pay big money for.

I wrote to Feelthere about a fix & never even received a reply. Poor support. Clive M.

Clive has a point about the "ridiculous reflection", really annoying. But, there is a fix for it out there somewhere. I had it, but have gone through a wipeout, and have to get it again.

A very nice biz jet, but, it is not a jump_in_and_fly, like some. You have to turn four switches on, turn a start knob, wait, and then turn a second start knob.

Set flaps, and trim, and punch it, takeoff, and you are flying.

Have had problems with the Flight Management System (FMS), but have not spent enough time and study to say it is the airplanes fault

Failing to provide an early and solid setup, I have had some problems with ILS landings, again, so far, think the fault is mine.

Feels just a bit spendy, but, for me, has been a positive experience
