Overview & History
The Embraer Legacy 650E can trace its routes back to the Legacy 600, a derivative of the Embraer ERJ 145 family, with the Legacy 600 entering service in 2002.
In 2009 Embraer announced the Legacy 650, based on the Legacy 600 but with an increased range, lowered alley and increased headroom.
The Legacy 650 was certified by the FAA in February 2011. Then five years later in 2016 Embraer announced yet further improvements to the Legacy 650 product, with a synthetic vision system and auto throttle as standard and a re-designed three-zone interior.
This new and improved Legacy 650 is the Embraer Legacy 650E, which entered service in 2017.
The Legacy 650E is supported by the near-perfect dispatch reliability of the Legacy 600 and 650 that came before it, prompting Embraer to offer the 650E with an unprecedented 10-year/10,000-hour warranty. This is the longest warranty of any business jet in the world.
Featuring three distinctive cabin zones, broadband connectivity, phone service and a transcontinental range – the Legacy 650E certainly is at the top of its game.
