Embraer continues the Legacy 650 long-haul demo flights

Legacy 650 interiorThe Legacy 650 executive jet has recently completed another long haul
demonstration round trip flight between Sao Paulo,
Brazil and Fort
Lauderdale in Miami.

This follows the Dubai
to London
flight completed last year, this time the Legacy 650 demonstrator covered 3,641
nautical miles (6,743 kilometers) in 8 hours and 48 minutes on the Miami-bound
leg. The flight was conducted with nine occupants, six passengers and three
crew members aboard a typically equipped Legacy 650. On the southbound leg, the
aircraft flew nearly the same ground distance, 3,623 nautical miles (6,710
kilometers) in 8 hours and 43 minutes, but carrying 11 occupants, eight passengers
and three crew members.

“We’re pleased to
demonstrate the Legacy 650’s nonstop capabilities on such a key route for Latin America, and particularly for the Brazilian
market,” said Claudio Galdo Camelier, Embraer vice president, marketing
executive jets. “This is another proof
that the Legacy 650 delivers intercontinental range with excellent payload
capacity. The aircraft offers a maximum range of 3,900 nautical miles (7,223
kilometers) with the comfort of three distinct cabin zones, the longest cabin
and the largest baggage compartment in its class.”
