Embraer Executive Jets has introduced the $25.9 million Legacy 650E slated to enter service in 2017. The aircraft features automation and technology updates and carries a 10-year or 10,000-flight-hour warranty.
The 650E builds on the successful Embraer 650.
“As a testament to our confidence in the Legacy 650’s heritage of robustness and near-perfect dispatch reliability, this new aircraft carries the longest warranty available in the business jet industry,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
Refinements to the 650E fight deck include synthetic vision as part of the latest Primus Elite advanced features from Honeywell. The system includes traffic collision avoidance system symbology and XM ground-based weather information on the moving map. The Legacy 650E also comes with autothrottle as standard equipment. The aircraft’s avionics system is compliant with all next-generation airspace mandates and requirements. The cockpit includes two iPads with mounting systems.
The 650E can carry 14 passengers in three distinct zones of privacy. The aircraft has a range of 3,900 nautical miles (7,223 kilometers) with four passengers with NBAA IFR fuel reserves.
