The New Legacy 500

Issue: 07-2012Photo(s): By Embraer

At the show, Embraer will have the Legacy 650, the mock-up of the new Legacy 500, an Embraer 190 and an ERJ 145 on static display.

The Legacy 500 can fly 3,000 nm with four passengers. With eight aboard it can still fly 2,800 nm at Mach 0.80. This means the Legacy 500 can fly the US coast-to-coast mission with eight passengers at Mach 0.80, even against 99 per cent of annual winds, and still land with NBAA fuel reserves. There’s room to stand up in a cabin that’s taller than any other, room to relax in a cabin that’s wider and even room to stretch one’s legs on the expansive flat floor.

The Embraer Legacy 650 business jet has an enviable flying range of 3,900 nm and a maximum operating altitude of 41,000 ft. ERJ 145 is known for its versatility and can be deployed to replace turboprops. It has a capacity of 50 seats and a range of 1,550 nm. Likewise, the 100-seat capacity, Embraer 190, is both for short and long haul and has a range of 2,400 nm.
