Embraer Executive Jets has delivered the first Phenom 100E to Etihad Flight College, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Etihad Airways.
The flight school is in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates and provides ab-initio pilot training for the airline’s expanding fleet. The school is the first to use the aircraft in the initial phase of flying training, according to Marco Tulio Pellegrini, president and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets.
Embraer and Etihad Flight College announced a contract for four Embraer Phenom 100E in June 2015. A second Phenom 100E is scheduled to arrive at the flight college’s base later this month. Two additional jets will be delivered in early 2017. Embraer currently has more than 20 Phenom 100E orders for flight training proposes, including options.
