Embraer has revised the Scheduled Maintenance Requirements (SMR) for the Phenom family of jets, extending the intervals between stops from 600 flight hours and/or 12 months and multiples to 800 flight hours or 12 months and multiples.
Most of the tasks with double intervals have also been optimized to the longest period, thus making it a 33% maintenance interval improvement, which is almost double the industry average. The improvement was made possible by the performance of the Phenom fleet over the last decade.
“Conceived as clean-sheet designs to be the best in their respective classes, the Phenom 100 and 300 series aircraft were built for high utilization,” said Johann C. Bordais, President & CEO, Embraer Services & Support. “Now, eleven years after the first delivery, with a fleet of over 900 jets in operation, our customer support and engineering team can reaffirm, once again, that our products are even better than the initial specification.”
The Scheduled Maintenance Requirements for the Phenom jets were developed to meet the specific needs of business aviation and are based on the Maintenance Steering Group (MSG-3) methodology.
