Embraer announced it has signed a contract with GrandView Aviation for a Phenom 300MED STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) conversion. The aircraft will be converted at Embraer’s Service Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and operated by on-demand charter operator GrandView Aviation. “We originally selected the Phenom 300 as our national fleet platform due to its flexibility and high utilisation reliability. With the Phenom 300MED conversion, our aircraft can transition from a passenger cabin interior to medevac in a matter of hours, allowing for maximum operational efficiency,” said Jessie Naor, chief operating officer at GrandView Aviation. “We already operate diverse missions, and the Phenom 300MED further adds to our ability to meet a wide variety of client needs.”

This contract is an example of Embraer’s ability to add value in our industry-leading product portfolio.”
