Embraer Legacy 500
The Legacy 500 is the only aircraft in the mid-size category to have a full Fly By Wire system. Since its entry into service at the end of 2014, more than 30 Legacy 500 have been delivered across over 10 countries to individual owners, charter companies as well as airlines. Separately, there are more than 260 Legacy 600s and 650s operating across the globe.
The Legacy 500 has the best-in-class six-foot flat-floor cabin, which is comparable to those of some aircraft in the super midsize category. Eight club seats can be berthed into four beds for complete rest in a cabin altitude of 6,000 feet at Flight Level 450. The in-flight entertainment system consists of a high-definition video system, surround sound, multiple audio and video input options, a cabin management system, and three options for voice communications and connectivity.
The Legacy 500 is the first midsize business jet with digital flight controls, based on Fly-By-Wire technology, featuring side sticks. The state-of-the-art Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite on four 15-inch high-resolution LCD displays allows graphical flight planning, and has options such as paperless operations capability and autobrakes.
The Legacy 500 is capable of flying at 45,000 feet and is powered by two Honeywell HTF7500E engines, the greenest in their class. Taking off from airfields as short as 4,084 ft, the Legacy 500 has a range of 3,125 nautical miles (5,788 kilometers) with four passengers, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves.
The Legacy 500 has a range of 3,125 nautical miles, allowing for non-stop flights from Jakarta to Shanghai or Mumbai and most parts of Australia.
