An Embraer EMB-505 airplane, N362FX, was substantially damaged during a runway excursion on landing at the Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR), Texas. The two pilots sustained minor injuries; the sole passenger was not injured.
The airplane was registered to FlexJet LLC and operated by Flight Options LLC.
The pilot-in-command reported that he flew an instrument landing system (ILS) approach to runway 35 and then transitioned to a visual approach. The approach and landing were normal; however, after touchdown the brakes seemed ineffective. He subsequently activated the emergency brake at which time the airplane started to slide. The airplane ultimately departed the end of the runway and encountered a small creek before coming to rest.

Weather may have been a factor to the incident as there was a thunderstorm in the area. A weather report three minutes before the accident shows wind from 130 degrees at 8 knots. Eight minutes after the accident wind was reported from 180 degrees at 13 knots, gusting to 19 knots.
The asphalt runway at Sugar Land Airport has a length of 8000 feet. Runway 35 has a 1984 ft displaced threshold, leaving 6016 ft (1833 m). A creek is located 30 m past the paved end of runway 35.

This was the second overrun accident involving a Phenom jet at Sugar Land Regional Airport. On 21 November 2014 a Phenom 100 ended up in a creek after overrunning runway 35 following a tailwind landing.
