September Mini-Conference Set for Asheville

A beautiful century-old stone resort in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Golfing, spa treatments, and an afternoon spent exploring the largest home in America. The latest technical updates from Embraer Executive Jet Services, and a free-flowing member Roundtable discussion. This and more will be featured at the September 8-11 mini-conference at The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina.

(We had announced at the annual conference in Santa Fe that the fall mini-conference would be at The Cliff House in Ogunquit, Maine, but it later became apparent that significant construction would be underway at the resort for many months to come, so we set our sights on Asheville.)

The weekend event will be a relaxed affair for Phenom owners, operators and pilots only—no vendor exhibits, or day-long seminar sessions. We’ll begin with a Welcome Reception Thursday evening, then have morning seminar sessions Friday and Saturday, afternoon activities on both days, and evening receptions and dinners. Plenty of time to relax and enjoy the charming Grove Park Inn, and the company of other Phenom owners and pilots.

The original main building at The Grove Park Inn

This should be a wonderful weekend with informative seminars, comparing notes with other owners and operators, enjoying farm-to-table dining, marveling at the grandeur of the Biltmore Estate, golfing, spa visits, and relaxing at a great hotel.

We have just 30 rooms in our block at The Grove Park Inn, so if you plan to attend you should act immediately. For more information and to register, go to http://phenom.aero/events/2016_Asheville/


Embraer Studies Landing Gear Overhaul Extension

Embraer Executive Jets is considering extending, by two years, the calendar TBO for the required landing gear overhaul for the Phenom 100 and 300, and will monitor the overhaul of five ship sets to guide its decision. In a letter to EJOA members, EEJ said it will evaluate the results of two landing gear overhauls from a fleet operator, one from a Brazilian customer, and two “typical” North American customers. The customers have already been selected based on time in service and geographic locations.

Landing gear TBO may be extended two years

The current TBO for Phenom landing gear overhaul is 8 years (96 months) calendar time or 12,000 flight cycles, whichever comes first. EEJ’s proposed target is 10 years (120 months) while maintaining the 12,000 flight-cycles TBO.

EEJ said it expects to make a decision on the landing gear overhaul extension by February 2017. An operator who reaches the current 8-year limit before the sampling process is complete can obtain a letter extending the TBO calendar time.


Embraer Tops OEM Product Support Surveys

Embraer Executive Jets scored big in this year’s AIN and ProPilot OEM Product Support reader surveys—big as in capturing the top spot in both surveys.

Readers responding to AIN’s 2016 Product Support Survey gave Embraer the highest combined overall average (8.4 out of a possible 10) for newer and older aircraft. Dassault Falcon and Gulfstream (both midsize- and large-cabin jets) tied for second place at 8.2. Bombardier’s Challenger series placed third. Bombardier’s Globals and Textron Aviation’s Citations tied for fourth place, both with a 7.9 rating, up 0.2 from last year. Bombardier’s Learjet support climbed to a 7.8 rating, up from last year’s 7.7, leaving it with a fifth-place ranking. For the complete AIN report go to:

In the ProPilot survey, Embraer beat out Gulfstream, Dassault, Citation-Textron, Bombardier, and Hawker Beechcraft-Textron, in that order. Embraer's overall score was 8.58 out of 10, up from 8.51 in 2015. Embraer scored first among manufacturers in cost of parts, tech manuals, tech reps, and service satisfaction categories.

Congratulations, Embraer, for outstanding performance in this year's OEM surveys.


APS Sets Phenom Weekend In October

The Embraer Jet Operators Association is partnering with Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) to present a three-day Professional Pilot Upset Training (PPUT) course October 20-22 at APS headquarters in Mesa, Arizona, for up to 10 EJOA members.

The first two days of the PPUT program include three flights in an Extra 300 or, optionally, an S211 Marchetti, dedicated to the fundaments of advanced stall and modern upset training. The fourth flight on Day 3 focuses on instrument-only recovery and a thorough spin awareness session. Participants also receive comprehensive ground, flight, and post-flight instruction on situations ranging from stalls and unusual attitudes to fully developed spins including basic all-attitude maneuvering to reinforce upset awareness, prevention, and recovery skills.

EJOA/APS course has optional S211 Marchetti flight

Note that Option 2 (S211) is limited to two participants, Option 3 (A4 Jet Enhancement) is limited to one participant, and Option 4 (S211 Jet Enhancement) is limited to one participant.

Upset training provides the skills, and the confidence, to handle an inadvertent departure from normal flight in any scenario, and APS is the recognized worldwide leader in this very specialized training. Join fellow Phenom pilots in an enjoyable, informative, and rewarding experience. The deadline for registering is September 11.

Peace-of-Mind Health Services With Mayo’s ProPilot

Many pilots avoid medical exams, even preventive services, because they fear losing their FAA medical certificates. This avoidance often results in receiving substandard medical care. Unaddressed medical needs are a far greater risk to a pilot's career than well-planned preventive and aviation examinations. The best insurance for protection against unexpected medical issues that could threaten your aviation medical certificate is to become involved with a program of early detection.

That is the core of the Mayo Clinic's ProPilot Program. It offers high-quality aviation medical certification exams paired with preventive health screening and, if necessary, treatment, all coordinated and conducted at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Mayo has formed an exclusive partnership with the Embraer Jet Operators Association to offer ProPilot to members, both individuals and flight departments. For more information about ProPilot and to sign up, go to:

Embraer Debuts New Phenom 100 EV

At EAA’s AirVenture Embraer Executive Jets announced a new version of the Phenom 100—the Phenom 100 EV, for Evolution.

Slated for certification and first deliveries in the first quarter of 2017, the 100 EV will be a "touch more Phenom" because of its Garmin Prodigy Touch 3000 avionics, and better performance. A change in the Fadec software extracts 35 lbs more thrust from the P&W 617F1-E engines for better hot and high takeoff and climb performance, and an impressive 16-kt increase in max cruise speed to 405 KTAS.

New Phenom 100 EV

In response to questions, Embraer Executive Jets President Marco Tulio Pelligrini said the Touch 3000 probably will not be offered as a retrofit to existing Phenom 100s. However, he agreed that members of the Embraer Jet Operators Association who own and/or fly Phenom 100s will be interested in the P&W engine modification. Embraer said it will work with the association to gauge member interest in the EV engine upgrade.
