On July 4, Embraer delivered the first Phenom 100 to Affinity Flight Training Services. The aircraft was selected to provide Multi-Engine Pilot Training to UK Armed Forces as part of the UK Ministry of Defence’s Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) program. The contract with Affinity comprises a firm order for five Phenom 100s and services support, as well as an option for additional follow on aircraft. “The departure of the first Embraer Phenom 100 from Brazil, en route to the UK, marks a significant milestone in preparation for delivering the MFTS Fixed Wing program,” said Iain Chalmers, Managing Director of Affinity. The Phenom 100 will replace the current aging Jetstream fleet. In 2014, Affinity was selected by Ascent Flight Training to provide and maintain the Phenom 100 for the UKMFTS program.
