Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

In the middle MFD there's a text stating that the spoilers are off. Are there spoilers on a Phenom 100, and if so, how can you set them?

I don't believe the real-deal Phenom 100 has spoilers.  But the G1000 has the provision to monitor spoilers, so it can be confusing.

The original Phenom 100 was delivered without spoilers. It was planned as an upgrade to 2014 models:

 

Via AOPA:

Phenom 100: In a much-anticipated move, Embraer said it would fit all upcoming newly delivered Phenom 100s—dubbed the “2014 Edition”—with multifunction spoilers as standard equipment. The spoilers serve as speed brakes as well as ground spoilers. For in-flight deployment, limitations for speed brake use include a minimum airspeed of 180 knots and flaps retracted. A two-position on-off switch actuates the speed brakes, which will greatly aid pilots of the slippery Phenom in reducing speed and increasing descent rates while maneuvering in the approach phase.
