Executive Flight Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Executive AirShare, takes possession of one of the first Phenom 100 EVs delivered by Embraer. It is also the first to join a fleet program. The aircraft is located in the Kansas City area.

“The utility and overall performance of the Phenom 100 has been exceptional,” says Keith Plumb, Executive Flight Services president and CEO. “The 100 EV takes Embraer’s technological advances to the next level with the Garmin touchscreen flight deck, and operational enhancements in hot and high conditions. Our pilots are eager to realize the benefits for the owner.”

“The Legacy 500’s perfectly positioned for both the owner and charter customers,” says Chief Operating Officer Harry Mitchel. “Our years of commitment in expanding our infrastructure and facilities have paid off. With that investment, our Embraer maintenance experts are able to reduce downtime considerably and keep each aircraft finely tuned and ready for service whenever they’re needed.”
