US investigators are examining a brake control unit from an Embraer Phenom 100 after the aircraft's antiskid system failed while landing.

The Phenom 100 identified as N196EC, which is owned by Delaware-based Professive Aviation, landed without damage on 5 April at Key Field Airport in Meridian, Mississippi, despite the brake system failure.

The twin-engined jet began sliding in a manner similar to hydroplaning after the pilot applied the brakes, according to a report by the US National Transportation Safety Board. The aircraft continued to slide 853m (2,800ft) down the runway before stopping, the NTSB report says.

Embraer was unable to provide further details about the incident.

"Our team as well as Brazilian authorities and suppliers are providing them with all needed support," Embraer says.
