Legacy 450 makes EBACE debut
Embraer’s Legacy 450, ist newest light jet, made its European debut at the EBACE show in Geneva.
The manufacturer expects to deliver the first aircraft to a customer by the end of 2015. Embraer says that yhe aircraft is performing similarly to the midsize Legacy 500, which was certified last year with all its design goals having been achieved or surpassed.
Marco Túlio Pellegrini, president & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets says: “The Legacy 450 and the Legacy 500, which will be presented together for the first time at EBACE, break paradigms in business aviation, offering premium comfort with a standup cabin, flat floor and outstanding performance.”
“The Legacy 450 has the largest cabin in its class and is the first jet in its category to replace conventional controls with digital full fly-by-wire technology. This aircraft is a flawless combination of technology and design, which defies every definition of a mid-light jet,” adds Pellegrini.
Embraer is showcasing all its aircraft portfolio, the Phenom 100E, the Phenom 300 light jet, the mid-light Legacy 450, the midsize Legacy 500, the large-cabin Legacy 650, and the ultra-large-cabin Lineage 1000E.
