Embraer announced improvements to the Legacy 600/650 executive jets

Embraer has introduced
improvements to the Legacy 600/650 executive jets that refines the interior,
features a more modern cabin management system and offers increased efficiency
and safety for aircraft operations. The new versions, with a host of new
options, are now available for standard aircraft produced in 2012.

“These changes are
specifically designed to increase cabin comfort and capabilities to ensure
passengers have the right environment to either relax or maintain their
productivity,” said Ernest Edwards, president Embraer Executive Jets. “Key to
this is our effort to reduce cabin sound levels, which set a new benchmark for
the Legacy 600 and Legacy 650 class of aircraft. Complementing the new features
is a full, high definition entertainment system. Customers will be able to see
the improvements during the worldwide demonstration tour we will launch in

The new interior includes the
Honeywell Ovation Select, all digital, cabin management system and this system
is also offered on the Legacy 450/500.

In addition to the Ovation
Select system, Embraer has improved the interior storage and added a new,
wireless handset Iridium telephone system. The company is also offering restyled
seats with side-pocket storage. For the wet areas in the galley and lavatory, a
selection of six natural stone flooring choices is available. Improvements for
the 2012 Legacy 600/650 are not restricted to the cabin and are designed to reduce
pilot workload as well as improve the flexibility, efficiency and safety of
aircraft operations. The cockpit features improved avionics with the Honeywell
Primus Elite. The Elite system includes LCD displays and a cursor control device
(CCD) as well as charts and map capability and XM Weather for US operations.

To ensure the 2012 Legacy
600/650 is equipped for the changing air traffic control system, Embraer
incorporated VNAV and RNP 0.3 for optimizing airspace use, flight time and fuel
burn. WAAS/LPV along with CPDLC FANS 1/A which enables satcom-based ATC communications
for trans-oceanic flights are available as options as are Smart Landing and Smart
Runway surface awareness and advisory system.
