Legacy 650 completes long non-stop flight
The Embraer Legacy 650 executive jet demonstrator completed an 8 hour non-stop flight from Dubai to Farnborough, a distance of 3,500 nautical miles. The flight had seven passengers and three crew members on board.
“The achievement of this nonstop flight in the Legacy 650 from Dubai to London with seven passengers is testimony of the capability the Legacy 650 offers to Middle East clients,” said Colin Steven, Embraer vice president, marketing and sales, Europe, Africa and the Middle East – Executive Jets. “With the comfort of three distinct cabin zones and the largest baggage volume in its class, the Legacy 650 provides a significant non-stop link capability between the Middle East and Europe, which can be performed year-round, independently of en route headwinds.”
Embraer expects deliveries of Legacy 650s to begin by the end of this year.
