Embraer's Phenom 300MED receives FAA and EASA certification
The Brazilian manufacturer Embraer reported Thursday that the Phenom 300MED has received the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). It is a unique Medevac solution for the Phenom 300 series aircraft, the world's best-selling light jet, for ten consecutive years. The STC was performed at Embraer's Service Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and will be operated by the launch customer, on-demand charter operator Grandview Aviation. The aeromedical interior of the Phenom 300MED was specified by Embraer and developed and certified by engineering services provider umlaut, part of Accenture, using Aerolite equipment. Aerolite developed the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) specifically for the Phenom 300MED. In accordance with certification requirements, umlaut conducted an evacuation test to confirm that two totally disabled patients could be evacuated. The Medevac solution, available for new and in-service aircraft, is installed exclusively by Embraer's prestigious Service and Support organization, ensuring the highest quality, reliability and service experience directly from the manufacturer. The Phenom 300MED benefits from the platform's heritage of best-in-class cabin pressurization, low operating costs, high mission flexibility, state-of-the-art avionics, plus its speed and range capabilities. With a best-in-class cabin altitude of 6,600 feet, passengers and crew enjoy more oxygen in the cabin. This feature equates to a healthier flight experience, which is essential for medical staff and patient care. Embraer and umlaut have developed a comprehensive set of configuration alternatives for the Phenom 300MED. These configuration alternatives include one or two stretchers, the possibility of transporting an incubator and additional medical equipment. The aircraft also features hospital-quality finishes. The Phenom 300MED is a medical evacuation solution created in collaboration with leading companies in the industry, and is designed to be quickly and easily configured to meet the varying needs of both healthcare professionals and patients. The aircraft has also been designed with agility in mind, capable of converting between an executive interior and a Medevac interior in just 5 hours.
