Embraer Launches Legacy 650 Large Exec Jet At NBAA 2009

Long-Range Version Of The Legacy 600 Is Already Flying, Certification Expected In Late 2010

Embraer presented the new Legacy 650 jet Monday in a news conference at the NBAA 62nd Annual Meeting and Convention being held October 20-22, in Orlando, Florida. The large executive jet category Legacy 650 is based on the super midsize Legacy 600, and will provide longer range for up to 14 passengers.

Currently, two Legacy 650s are undergoing flight testing, with certification and first deliveries scheduled for the second half of 2010. The cost of developing the Legacy 650 is already included in Embraer's research and development plan for 2009 and 2010 and, therefore, does not affect the estimates released by the company for this year.

The Legacy 650 will fly nonstop up to 3,900 nautical miles with four passengers, or 3,800 nautical miles with eight on board, which is approximately 500 nautical miles farther than the Legacy 600. The range increase was accomplished through extensive airframe modifications, such as reinforced wing and landing gear, larger fuel capacity, and new, highly efficient and more powerful Rolls-Royce AE 3007A2 engines. Honeywell’s new Primus Elite avionics suite will equip the Legacy 650 and future Legacy 600s.

All of this has been done while maintaining the same comfortable and functional interior of the Legacy 600, with its three distinct cabin zones and large galley, as well as the largest inflight accessible baggage compartment of any executive jet. A new insulation package has reduced cabin noise levels, and the high-speed Internet datalink has been upgraded to Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband System.

Some of the city pairings now possible for the Legacy 650 are London to New York ; Dubai to London or Singapore; Miami to São Paulo; Singapore to Sydney; or Mumbai to central Europe.
