A second Phenom 100E is scheduled for delivery in late June, and the two remaining aircraft will be handed over in early 2017, says Embraer.

Etihad Flight College’s general manager, Philip Chandler, describes the six-seat twinjet as “an exciting new asset for Etihad Flight College. Our flight college is a world-class training facility, producing a constant stream of well-trained, highly-skilled pilots – the majority of whom are Emirati – for the growing operations of Etihad Airways.”
