Embraer's Legacy 650 jet debuts at Airshow China 2010

Company promotes its full line of executive jets, while presenting its newest product

São José dos Campos, November 17, 2010 – Embraer attends the eighth China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition (Airshow China 2010, www.airshow.com.cn), November 16 to 21, in the city of Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, China. The Company’s large Legacy 650 executive jet, on its first visit to China, debuts at the Airshow with both a static display and demonstration flights scheduled every afternoon during the event.

The Legacy 650 is the seventh executive jet model announced by Embraer and complements its broad portfolio of business jets. From the entry level to the ultra-large segments, Embraer’s executive jets feature unique combinations of cabin size, performance and technology that are well-suited to meet diverse customer demands. In their respective categories, these jets offer the roomiest cabin, largest baggage compartment, unparalleled design style, superior performance, fuel efficiency, and state-of-the-art systems that differentiate each and every one of them.

The large Legacy 650 is an extended-range version of the successful super midsize Legacy 600, of which nearly 200 units have been delivered, worldwide. The new model can fly up to 3,900 nautical miles (7,223 kilometers), nonstop, with four passengers. This significant increase in range was accomplished through extensive airframe modifications, larger fuel capacity, and new highly efficient and more powerful Rolls-Royce AE 3007A2 engines. Honeywell’s Primus Elite™ avionics suite equips the Legacy 650 and future Legacy 600s. It has the same elegant, comfortable and functional interior as the Legacy 600, with three distinct cabin zones and a spacious galley, as well as the largest in-flight accessible baggage compartment in its category. Cabin noise levels were reduced with a state-of-the-art sound insulation package and the highspeed Internet data link connection has been upgraded to Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband system.
