This article covers the Embraer E50P Aircraft, which is commercially called the Embraer Phenom 100. An overview of why the jet is also called the E50P and background information on the jet is provided in this article.
When looking at aircraft, you may see several different names for each plane or jet. The E50P jet is an example of a secondary name for an aircraft. The Embraer E50P is the Embraer Phenom 100. The E50P name was created by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for use by air traffic control agencies around the work. ICAO calls the alphanumeric name for aircraft Aircraft Type Designators. Aircraft Type Designators are published in ICAO publication DOC 8643, which is a document that contains all of the codes for aircraft. On the ICAO website, there is a search feature for DOC 8643 that allows users to lookup type designators for each aircraft.
The E50P aircraft type designator is meant to be used by air traffic control agencies like the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), NAV CANADA, and EUROCONTROL. At the FAA, the agency takes the ICAO aircraft type designator publication and then republishes the information in their document.
Aircraft Tracking Websites
On the various aircraft flight tracking websites, like FlightAware or FlightRadar, you will see the aircraft type designator on those websites. Below is an example of a flight with the type designator shown on FlightAware in the tracking information block.

Other Versions of the Aircraft
Since the aircraft was launched in 2008, there have been new versions of the jet created. Embraer created the Phenom 100E and the Phenom 100EV, which are enhanced versions of the jet. Even though those jets are slightly different from the original light jet, they both still use the E50P code when flying.
