Embraer Executive Jets has announced a new version of its Legacy 650 large business jet, the Legacy 650E.
The aircraft features automation, technology updates, restyled seats, a 10-year or 10,000-flight-hour warranty – and a lower price.
The new aircraft has been reduced to $25.9 million from $31 million. Entry into service is scheduled for 2017.
The aircraft replaces the Legacy 650, which itself replaced the 600. The 650E, which stands for Evolution, includes Primus Elite Advanced Features from Honeywell, with TCAS/traffic collision avoidance system, XM-ground-based weather information, moving map, Synthetic Vision System and autothrottles. It is compliant with all next-generation airspace mandates and requirements.
In addition, two iPads with mounting systems are available in the cockpit for easier updates and a range of tools to support the operation. The feature reduces cockpit workload.
The Legacy 650E carries up to 14 passengers in three cabin zones and provides internet connectivity and inflight entertainment. It has a range of 3,900 nm with four passengers.
The aircraft’s warranty is 10 years or 10,000 flight hours for systems and components, which matches the warranty period of the airframe.
