Embraer Legacy 500


My Opinion

In my opinion this is the perfect mid size business jet. It is capable of performing steep approaches and is the optimal way to cross a continent because its technology is at the current state of the art and it does offer one of the best cabins in its segment. For example the cabin is much more spacious than the one of the Cessna Citation X.
Last but not least, in my opinion the Legacy 500 is the better looking version of the Bombardier Challenger 350.

Description of the manufacturer

Predict the future? Why not invent it? That’s the philosophy behind our game-changing Legacy 500 — the first midsize jet with digital flight controls with full fly-by-wire, and a clean-sheet benchmark for the future in performance, passenger room and comfort. The 12-passenger Legacy 500 is the fastest jet in its class, delivering a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.82, excellent runway performance, and US coast-to-coast range for eight. It’s truly a product of rethinking convention.

If I wasn’t out of votes, I would certainly vote for this. Those winglets are really awesome. 😍


Thank you very much for your support by posting on the thread nevertheless.

But keep this nice plane in mind if you will ever decide to remove a vote from another request!😋



This plane is fantastic! I <3 It. It is very similar to the Falcon and the Citation, but man, its hard to beat a plane like this! :) <3


That plane is as beautiful as the private plane world goes. If you dont roll up in one you ain’t a real baller. Sadly I voted for commercial jets and is out of votes.Hopefully this gets added I tell people to vote for it.

Thank you very much for your support!

You guys are absolutely right. This bird is one of the most stunning looking bizz-jets you can buy!
It should be definitely added at some point in the future.

@Marsiana7… MaxSez: I really appreciate your exception Feature presentations. Your excellent research, well constructed prose and personal opinions are informative and read like a corporate PR pitch.
The only flaw is your hard over on those craft that “Suck” thru the air.

I’m a Reginal and GA kinda guy. If it “Screws” thru the air I’m all in. You’ll get my vote. Consider a light reciprocators some time. You’ll get my kudo’s even if it’s a pusher. A recip STOL will get you a Max BZ award.
G’nite & Regard, “Do Good Work”

Thank you very much for you kind words!
I do really appreciate that!

I do like all kind of aircrafts. No matter if they are props, turboprops or Jet,…

I‘ve created to requests for turboprops. I think they would fit IF very well because of their very good performance and one twin piston engine aircraft.
If you haven’t checked them out you might want to! :).

One of the best looking business-jets in a very cool livery.
But the best part of this jet in the video is the registration-number. That’s just awesome 😂😂.
