Long-range delivery flights are standard practice in an industry without any borders and the product itself is its own delivery system. Today's Movie Monday, produced and filmed by Anna Lucchese, takes us inside an aircraft's extended journey to its customer.
In May, an Embraer Phenom 100, the Brazilian airframer's very light jet, or entry-level jet depending on your preferred nomenclature, was delivered from the company's Sao Jose dos Campos base to New Delhi, India. The aircraft (N4200), which is owned by the Joyalukkas Group, crossed from South America to South Asia over 19 legs and nine days.
While this particular aircraft had a long way to travel to its customer, in Melbourne, Florida today, Embraer is delivering the first US built Phenom 100 to a US customer, the first North American expansion for the company, adding to its Brazilian and Chinese manufacturing footprints.
Movie Monday runs just under 10 minutes. Enjoy.
