“That first feel­ing of the ramp pres­ence was what re­ally at­tracted me to the Phenom 300. I re­mem­ber see­ing the air­plane and tak­ing a bunch of pic­tures; I was just so struck by the pres­ence of the plane sit­ting there. And then you start look­ing into its per­for­mance, and you sit in the cock­pit and get fa­mil­iar with the sys­tems de­sign and what it’s re­ally go­ing to be like fly­ing the air­craft, and it just seemed like a nat­u­ral fit for me – and, of course, my wife loved it too! The en­gi­neers have done an in­cred­i­ble job. I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the Phenom 300’s mod­ern de­sign, and it just strikes me – week af­ter week, month af­ter month, as I own the plane – how well-thought-through things are: from how the re­dun­dancy works, to where things are placed, to the CAS mes­sag­ing sys­tem when you have things that you need to work through in flight. I have a lot of con­fi­dence get­ting in the air­plane. The per­for­mance of the Phenom 300 is just se­cond to none. It’s the big­gest sin­gle-pi­lot ma­chine you can fly in the sky, and I re­ally like that.”
