Embraer delivered the first Legacy 650 large executive jet, this month, for the Brazilian market to a businessman from São Paulo. The customer already owns and operates an entry level Phenom 100 jet.

“It is a pleasure to see, less than two months after certification, a Legacy 650 operating in Brazil,” says Breno Corrêa, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Latin America – Executive Jets. “The unparalleled performance and comfort that made the Legacy 600 a sales success in Brazil are found in the Legacy 650, which, with its extended range, fully promises to continue Embraer’s successful incursion into the Nation’s executive aviation market.”

The Legacy 650 can handle flights of up to 3,900 nautical miles (7,223 kilometers), with four passengers, or 3,840 nautical miles (7,112 kilometers) with eight passengers, both nonstop, which allows the aircraft to fly from São Paulo to Miami (U.S.).

The new large Embraer jet has the same elegant, comfortable and functional interior as the Legacy 600, with an ample galley and the largest baggage compartment accessible in flight in its category. The Legacy 650 is equipped with the modern Honeywell Primus Elite™ avionics suite that will also equip the Legacy 600 in the future, as well as the, more powerful, and highly efficient Rolls-Royce AE 3007A2 engines.

About the Legacy 650
The Legacy 650 is Embraer’s offering in the large jet category. The aircraft combines a stylish and spacious cabin with the range to carry out transatlantic missions: maximum range of 3,900 nautical miles (7,223 kilometers) with four passengers, and 3,840 nautical miles (7,112 kilometers) with eight passengers – NBAA IFR reserves included. This significant range increase was made possible through extensive modifications, such as reinforced wings and landing gear, a redesigned and fully automated fuel system with larger tank capacity, and new highly efficient, more powerful Rolls-Royce AE 3007A2 engines. Important nonstop city pairings include London (UK) to New York (US); Dubai (United Arab Emirates – UAE) to London or Singapore; São Paulo (Brazil) to Miami (US); and Singapore to Sydney (Australia).

The Legacy 650 certification marks the debut of the new Honeywell Primus Elite™ avionics suite, which will also equip the Legacy 600. The highly reliable, light-weight Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) units provide enhanced functions, such as charts and geographical maps with up-linked XM weather overlay. As a follow-on certification, the coupled VNAV (Vertical Navigation) will allow the airplane to follow FMS (Flight Management System) vertical paths, which is particularly beneficial during descents with several altitude and speed constraints, since it reduces crew workload and optimizes fuel consumption.

Similarly, the FANS/CPDLC (Future Air Navigation System – Controller Pilot Datalink Communication) function will provide the aircraft with air-ground data communications so pilots can respond to ATC (Air Traffic Control) messages, request clearances and deviations in the flight plan, report information, and so on, thus avoiding voice frequency congestion and possible language hurdles. With RNP 0.3 (Required Navigation Performance) capability and other functionalities, such as WAAS/LPV (Wide Area Augmentation System/Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance) and the SmartRunway™ and SmartLanding™ Runway Awareness and Advisory System, the Legacy 650 and Legacy 600 flight decks will conform to the latest technologies for enhanced situational awareness, while ensuring outstanding operational flexibility in congested airspaces, terrain-challenged airports, and adverse weather conditions.

All of this was done while maintaining the same comfortable and functional interior of the Legacy 600, with its three distinct cabin zones and spacious wet galley, as well as the largest in-flight accessible baggage compartment of its class. Both jets also feature new state-of-theart insulation materials for improved noise comfort and Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband system for high-speed Internet in-flight.

With an increased Maximum Landing Weight (MLW) of 44,902 pounds (20,000 kilograms), the new jet provides additional fuel capacity, thus contributing to enhanced mission efficiency, in terms of cost and time. The higher “full fuel” payload capacity is equivalent, in weight, to nine passengers at 91 kilograms (200 pounds) each. The Legacy 650 also presents other performance improvements, such as an increased maximum operating speed (VMO) below 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) to 300 KIAS (Knots Indicated Air Speed), and an increased maximum flap-extended (45º) speed (VFE) to 160 KIAS, resulting in greater operational advantage for today’s busy airspaces.

Similar to the Legacy 600, the Legacy 650 performs outstandingly in hot and/or high destinations, such as Dubai (UAE), Aspen and Telluride (US), and Toluca (Mexico). La Paz (Bolivia) is also a viable destination for the Legacy 650, thanks to the High Altitude Landing and Takeoff (HALTO) capability for operations out of airports at elevations up to 13,800 feet (4,206 meters). It is also one of the largest executive jets able to fly into and out of the Cannes-Mandelieu (France) and London City (UK) airports.

The Legacy 650 received its certification from the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil – ANAC) and from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in October 2010.
