Embraer Executive Jets has received certification for the new Prodigy Touch avionics suite for the Phenom 300 business jet from Brazil and the USA.

“The Prodigy Touch benefits from all the existing Prodigy Flight Deck features but enhances the experience with touch-screen technology that is so much a part of our daily lives today,” said Ernest Edwards, president, Embraer Executive Jets. “It is part of Embraer Executive Jets’ ongoing efforts to continually offer improvements that enhance situational awareness, safety and reduce pilot workload for a better overall flight experience.”

Prodigy Touch is based on the Garmin G3000 platform, will be available as an option for the Phenom 300 beginning in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The three-display, new avionics suite features large, higher resolution, 14.1-inch displays, two of which are configured as Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) while the other is configured as a Multi-Function Display (MFD).
