X-Plained.Com reviewer Angelique van Campen and Andy Clarke finished their Embraer Phenom 300 Aerobask tour. A tour, no, a massive review is the result. Both Andy and Angelique did a lot of testing and system description and operation. I can tell you that both Andy and Angelique had a lot of fun checking out this very nice and well modeled Embraer business jet.
According to Andy “The model is supplied with numerous working systems all of which are created to a high standard. The manual provides good guidance on how these various systems can and should be used. The systems are easy to follow and the signage for switches and instruments in the cockpit is very clear.”
Angelique continues “The aircraft is very realistic to fly. It is responsive yet forgiving and gives a very smooth ride. It is possible to just jump in and fly the model but more challenging and accurate flights are available to the more experienced user. This was confirmed by their real Phenom 300 safety pilot who advices and tested the modeled Phenom 300.
Curious what Angelique and Andy have to say? Due to the length of the review I advice you to relax, take a drink and enjoy the comprehensive Aerobask Phenom 300 review.
Awesome review. Really appreciate the thoughtfulness and detail provided. Exactly the level of information I was seeking.
With pleasure Greg, also on behalf of Andy.
Excellent review of the Phenom. I purchased it when it was first released and have enjoyed flying the aircraft. It really does fill a niche as it relates to business jets for X-Plane.
Thank Todd. By the way for all others who read this. Todd came up with a remark regarding RealityXP software/instruments. According to Todd’s findings ….. The RealityXP GTN-750 does not work correctly in the Phenom. My understanding is that it is related to how the aircraft and avionics are coded versus how the RealityXP GTN is coded. I had posted a navigation issue in the Aerobask section of the X-Plane forums in which the developer was kind enough to respond and basically state that the GTN will not work with the Phenom.
