CAAC has certified Legacy 650
Civil Aviation Administration of China has awarded a type certificate to the Embraer Legacy 650 executive jet
Embraer’s Legacy 650 has
been type certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) with
the revised validation type certificate data sheet. This allows aircraft now to
be registered in China.
The jet has been certified by other major aviation regulatory authorities,
National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), European Aviation Safety Authority
(EASA) and United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
“We are glad that
the Legacy 650 has been certified by CAAC, which indicates a strong recognition
of Embraer’s product and marks a significant advance, as the jet enters the
Chinese market. We are now fully prepared to serve our Legacy 650 customers in
this region,” said Guan Dongyuan,
president of Embraer China.
“This large executive jet is a perfect
integration of outstanding performance, advanced technology and intelligent
luxury, making it very suitable for China’s business climate.”
In 2011, Embraer received orders for the Legacy
650 from Chinese customers, including 13 for Minsheng Financial Leasing and one
for the movie star Jackie Chan, who is also Embraer’s newly appointed brand
