Embraer Phenom 300 to Enter Service in China

Embraer's light business jet, the Phenom 300, is set to enter service in China for the first time thanks to an order from private jet operator Erdos General Aviation Co.
Erdos is scheduled to receive its Phenom 300 in the third quarter of 2013, though Embraer has not announced a firm delivery date yet. 
"Our companies share the same vision of the promising future of China’s executive aviation market," said Guan Dongyuan, president of Embraer China, speaking about the Brazilian manufacturer's new partnership with Erdos. 

The order comes following certification of the Phenom 300 by the Civil Aviation Administration of China last fall.
