LORD Corporation to supply engine mount system for Legacy 500
LORD Corporation has been awarded a contract to supply the engine mount system on the Embraer Legacy 500 business jet.
LORD successfully completed the certification of the Legacy 500 system in 2014. The mount system is designed to manage the thrust, G and FBO/Windmilling loads of the engine, while controlling the deflections and meeting the envelope size and weight requirements.
The Legacy 500 is the fastest jet in its class, delivering a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82 and excellent runway performance. In practical terms, it can fly eight US passengers coast to coast at Mach 0.80, even against 99 percent of annual winds, and still land with NBAA IFR fuel reserves.
