Embraer expects delivery of the first aircraft very shortly and the Legacy 450, the new mid-light jet, which shares the Legacy 500 airframe and technology, is expected to be certified and delivered in 2015.

Craig Olson, vice president and general manager, business and regional systems for Rockwell Collins, said: “Pro Line Fusion is a perfect match for this fly-by-wire executive jet. These highly advanced systems work seamlessly together, creating a powerful experience for the pilots. We share Embraer’s excitement about this significant milestone and look forward to working alongside them in Brazil as this programme progresses into the future.”

The Legacy 500 is the first Pro Line Fusion-equipped jet with Rockwell Collins’ Airport Moving Map as a certified option.

The new Pro Line Fusion optional features in development for the Legacy 500 and Legacy 450 include the HGS-3500 Head-up Guidance System and EVS-3000 Enhanced Vision System, which is the first to detect LED airport lighting.
