Embraer sells first Legacy 600 with new interior and avionics
Embraer will deliver the first Legacy 600 with the new cabin interior and new Honeywell Primus Elite avionics to Air Hamburg later in the year.
“We are delighted to welcome Air Hamburg, an esteemed and valued customer as the first operator of the new enhanced Legacy 600,” said Colin Steven, Embraer’s vice president of sales in Europe, Africa and Middle East. “We have no doubt that passengers will appreciate the unparalleled combination of luxurious comfort, space and performance of the newly enhanced Legacy 600’s interior cabin.”
“Air Hamburg started receiving requests for charter flights to destinations that were out of reach for our current fleet. Its limited baggage capacity and range made the step into the super-midsize category necessary to fullfill customer needs,” stated Floris Helmers, CEO of Air Hamburg. “That’s why, after evaluating the market of new aircraft in the super-midsize category, the Legacy 600 was the best choice.”
The new interior includes the Honeywell Ovation Select, all digital, cabin management system.
In addition to the Ovation Select system, Embraer has improved the cabin acoustics comfort with a 5 dB SIL noise reduction, the interior storage and added a new, wireless handset Iridium telephone system. The company is also offering restyled seats with side-pocket storage and greater swivel movement in the third zone.
The Legacy 600 entered service in 2002. With a range of 3,400 nautical miles (6.297 kilometers), it can fly with 14 passengers, under NBAA IFR conditions, nonstop from Hamburg to Moscow, or from Hamburg to Dubai. The Legacy 600 can also achieve ranges of Hamburg to Delhi or Hamburg to Gander with four passengers under NBAA IFR conditions. Today more than 200 Legacy 600/650s are flying around the world.
