delivered the first limited-edition Phenom 300E aircraft — part of the Duet collaboration with Porsche
— to an undisclosed customer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The aircraft was delivered at Embraer’s Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida.
Duet marks ‘the first-ever true collaboration’ between leading aviation and automotive manufacturers, pairing the fastest and longest-ranged single-pilot certified jet with the ‘gold standard’ in production sports cars — the Porsche 911 Turbo S.
Embraer and Porsche worked in tandem to create a ‘seamless experience from ground to air’ using matching design elements that are only available in this pairing. Only 10 of this limited-edition pairing will ever be produced.
Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets, said: “We designed Duet in collaboration with Porsche to introduce a seamless travel experience for those wanting to arrive in something totally original, while holding true to our vision of delivering the ultimate experience in business aviation.
“The Phenom 300E is already the best-selling light jet in the world, and we continue to push the boundaries to provide even more value and bring new experiences to our customers.”
On the exterior, both aircraft and car share a matching ‘paint pallet and scheme’, complete with a custom two-tone paint finish and hand-painted pinstripes; and to further highlight the exclusivity of this pairing, the aircraft registration number is painted on the lower part of the rear wing of the car ‘to demonstrate that specific car belongs to a unique aircraft’.
