The Embraer Legacy 600 and 650 are heavy jets developed and manufactured by Embraer of Brazil and were Embraer’s first aircraft developed for the private jet market.
Developed from the design of the Embraer ERJ-135 regional jet, the Legacy 600 first flew in 2000. Carrying many design features over from the ERJ-135, the Legacy 600 adopted winglets and additional fuselage fuel tanks for enhanced range.
In 2009, Embraer announced the development of the Legacy 650, featuring a longer range than its predecessor.
With a typical capacity of 13 passengers, a transcontinental range of 7,223km (3,900nm), and the largest cabin, baggage capacity, galley and lavatory of any heavy jet, the Legacy 650 is popular aircraft worldwide and is suitable for a wide variety of missions.
The latest development of the Legacy 600 family, the Legacy 650E features updated cabin fittings as well as the latest cabin technology including Honeywell’s Ovation Select entertainment and cabin management system.
