Embraer Legacy

The Embraer Legacy is a business and commercial jet; here, you will learn more about one of the Legacy line's models, the Legacy 600. The 600 gets most of its avionics from the ERJ 140, and it has added fuel tanks in front of the wing and in its tail. There are also added smaller wings, which reduce drag greatly. This aircraft is certified for altitudes of up to 41,000 feet, and it was launched at the Farnborough Airshow. It can carry sixteen passengers for over 3,000 nautical miles.

The Embraer Legacy line also includes the Legacy Shuttle; essentially an ERJ 135 with seating for nineteen and a shorter range than the Legacy 600. 600 is a business jet derivative of the Embraer ERJ 145 family of commercial jet aircraft.Contents [hide]

The Embraer Legacy 600 is a direct competitor to other small-to-midsize private jets. Since the inception of the Legacy, Embraer has launched many other business aircraft, from the Phenom to the Lineage 1000, which is a longer-range version of the E 190, which can seat one hundred people. In the seven years since they were first made, Embraer has delivered more than 150 Legacy aircraft to over twenty countries; each of these aircraft have sixteen seats in three divided sections, or on the Shuttle, up to 37 can be seated. The cockpit of the Legacy has a Primus 1000 avionics set by Honeywell.

There is also a longer-range version of the 600 (the 650). It has a range of almost four thousand miles nonstop seating four, or 3,840 miles seating eight. This aircraft was debuted at the NBAA show in 2009, and gained FAA certification in February of 2011.
