Embraer delivers the first limited edition Phenom 300E aircraft - part of Duet's collaboration with Porsche
Embraer delivered the first limited edition Phenom 300E aircraft - part of Duet's collaboration with Porsche - to an undisclosed customer in Fort Lauderdale. The aircraft was delivered to the Embraer Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida.
Duet marks the first true collaboration between major aviation and automobile manufacturers, the fastest and longest single-pilot aircraft with the gold standard in production sports cars, Porsche 911 Turbo S. Embraer and Porsche worked in tandem to create a perfect experience, both on the ground and in the air, using appropriate design elements - which are available only in this combination. Only ten such "packages" in limited edition will ever be produced.
The exclusive collaboration logo, which describes the aerodynamic requirements of both the aircraft and the car, is highlighted on the aircraft seat head restraints and on the car head restraints, as well as on the dashboard. Each package also has a special logo that represents the delivery number.
The customer has the option to select the location. To further highlight the exclusivity of this pair, the aircraft registration number is painted on the underside of the rear wing of the car to demonstrate that the specific car belongs to a single aircraft.
