Brazil-based Embraer has added the Phenom 300 light aircraft to its assembly operation in Melbourne, Fla.
The first wing and fuselage arrived in late August.
The company currently produces the Phenom 100 at its Melbourne plant.
Embraer added the Phenom 300 to bring production closer to customers, officials said.
The Melbourne facility employs 233 people, including 160 assembly personnel.
Eventually, the assembly line will be able to produce eight planes per month.
The first Phenom 300 to come off the line is scheduled for delivery in March, one of more than 12 scheduled for production in Melbourne next year.
Embraer is also developing an engineering and technology center at the site, scheduled for completion next year.
It plans to add 200 employees at the center over the next five years.
