Embraer Boosts Phenom’s Performance

Embraer recently announced a revision to the Scheduled Maintenance Requirements (SMR) for the Phenom family of jets. The revision extends the intervals between stops from 600 flight hours and/or 12 months and multiples to 800 flight hours or 12 months and multiples. Most of the tasks with double intervals were also optimised to the longest period. 
This is a 33 per cent maintenance interval improvement, which is almost double the industry average. For customers, this significant improvement equates to less downtime, lower maintenance costs, a long economic life, and more time in the air.
The improvement was made possible by the performance of the Phenom fleet over the last decade. More than one year of engineering analysis confirmed that the customers of these aircraft can benefit from the high availability of the fleet for convenience and flexibility.
The SMR for the Phenom jets were developed to meet the specific needs of business aviation and are based on the Maintenance Steering Group (MSG-3) methodology. The methodology aims to preserve and restore the safety and reliability levels of the aircraft and to build a knowledge base for design and maintenance improvement. Its main benefits include higher aircraft availability and overall cost reduction.
