Embraer has delivered the first Phenom 300E with the new Bossa Nova interior to Joe Howley, co-founder of Patient Airlift Services (PALS).
PALS was established in 2010 by a group of pilots in the Northeast United States. In conjunction with the organization’s ten-year anniversary, Howley took delivery of the Phenom 300E at a ceremony held at Embraer’s Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida.
The aircraft will be used to advance the organization’s mission to arrange free transportation for individuals requiring medical diagnosis, treatment, or follow-up who cannot afford or are unable to fly commercially.
“We are humbled knowing the Phenom 300E will aid the vital role served by PALS, and we know its passengers will be well-served by the best cabin environment and lowest cabin altitude in the light jet class,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
“PALS is an organization of volunteer pilots who choose to dedicate their time and resources to serving families struggling through the hardest times in their lives,” said Howley. “To further serve the PALS mission, I am excited to take delivery of this single-pilot certified aircraft in order to provide the speed, passenger comfort, and flexibility our valued passengers deserve.”
Bossa Nova encompasses a package of Embraer’s latest interior developments, with features such as carbon fiber accents and Embraer’s exclusive Ipanema sew style. The Bossa Nova interior was first introduced with the debut of the Phenom 300E’s larger siblings, the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600, and won best design in the 2019 International Yacht & Aviation Awards in Venice.
