When you want a superior air charter that’s built to perform without sacrificing comfort, you know an Embraer Legacy charter is going to give you that great experience. The Embraer Legacy family features a variety of aircraft designed to optimize business travel and provide unrelenting luxury.
Here’s a closer look at your options to find the best aircraft in the Legacy line.
Embraer Legacy 450
First up: the Embraer Legacy 450, which is touted as the fastest mid-light jet. This speedy jet has the only true clean-sheet design that you’ll find in its class. And in true Embraer Legacy fashion, its speed is complemented by stylish aesthetics and technology.
With its flat floor and 6 feet tall cabin, the jet is very spacious, with a 24-foot length that makes it the largest cabin in its class.
And speaking of cabin interiors, there are two center club seats that fully berth into beds in case you need a power nap before your next meeting.
In total, this aircraft can seat up to nine passengers. Most seats have optional massage and heating for added comfort, and the swivel, forward and lateral movement of the chairs makes them extremely versatile.
Last but certainly not least, the refreshment center has everything you need for quick and easy snacks, including a microwave and coffee brewer. Some aircraft come equipped with a wet galley with hot and cold water, as well as an ice drawer and optional china or crystal or silverware.
Its travel speed of up to 637 miles per hour makes it an optimal choice for fast trips. Plus, thanks to its compatibility with short runways, you can get in and out of most airports with ease. Many travelers request this aircraft for tricky airports like London City and Telluride, CO.
One important point to notice is that this jet is the only jet in this class that has replaced conventional controls with full Fly-By-Wire technology. This technology is extra comforting since it does not allow control commands that exceed what the jet can do.
Embraer Legacy 500
The Embraer Legacy 500 is classified as a midsize jet. This aircraft was created for those need to go farther and faster than what the 450 has to offer, but still offers a high level of comfort and class.
The Legacy 500’s upgraded cabin can seat anywhere from 8 to 12 passengers in a cabin layout similar to that of the Legacy 450. The other main difference here is that the Legacy 500 has 4’4” more in length.
You’ll notice the amenities of the Legacy 500 are also very similar to that of the Legacy 450 with its wireless high-speed internet, airshow systems, phone, fax, DVD, meeting table, and even individual workstations at some of the seats.
Another valuable upgrade is the longer range option in the midsize jet arena. You can travel a max range of 3,450 nautical miles, and its two Honeywell HTF7500E engines boost its max travel speed up to 632 miles per hour.
Embraer Legacy 600
As you explore the Embraer Legacy 600, you’ll quickly see this heavy jet is one of the best in its class. With a range of up to 3,400 nautical miles and more cabin space than others in its line, no transcontinental flight is too great for this aircraft.
If you compare the Legacy 600 against other aircraft in its class, you’ll find that its spacious cabin can easily host business meetings and in-flight dinners. The 42-foot cabin length with typical configuration can seat anywhere from 8 to 14 passengers. Many companies use the 600 for entertaining in the air because of its space and style.
The cabin floor plan is usually configured into three different sections. This makes sense given that the 600’s airframe was originally designed for use as a small commercial aircraft. If you value privacy or need to carry out multiple events or business meetings at once while in the air, you can easily do this with this large jet.
A pair of Rolls-Royce AE 3007/A1E turbofan engines are the secret behind its amazing performance, enabling a max cruising speed of 608 miles per hour. On average, the typical cruising speed is 593 miles per hour, but that is still higher than the average for a heavy jet.
The Embraer Legacy charter line has been a favorite of private air travelers for years, thanks to its reputation of excellence, high performance, and all the comfort and amenities you’ve come to expect from private jets.
