Embraer introduced the Legacy 450 in August 2015. The mid size jet is capable of carrying up to nine passengers. Similar to the Legacy 500 in both looks and specs, the Legacy 450 is a top performer in its class.
The Legacy 450 offers fly-by-wire technology along with a highly sophisticated avionics suite. The avionics package comes from Rockwell Collins and includes full integration for the crew, auto throttle, and synthetic vision among other high-tech features.
The selling point for the Legacy 450 has to be its beautiful cabin. Featuring a cabin height of six feet, the cabin provides plenty of room and maneuvering ability for all passengers.
The Legacy 450 offers full berthing seats. Coming in at a width of nearly seven feet, any passenger should feel comfortable. Similar to the Legacy 500, the Legacy 450 offers Honeywell Ovation Cabin Management. This multimedia integration allows passengers a variety of cabin entertainment options as well as vast communications capabilities.
The flat floor within the Legacy 450 ensures relatively safe movement in the cabin. This discontinues the need for passengers to constantly watch their step. The Legacy 450 offers a superior quiet ride in comparison to its competitors, meaning that the sounds of the jet engines are minimal.
While the creature comforts are definitely a selling point, the performance of the Legacy 450 is nothing to overlook. Powered by the Honeywell HTF7500E Turbofan jet engine, the Legacy 450 has enough thrust to get you up, out, and away.
Clocking in at a cruising speed of nearly 530 mph, the Legacy 450 wastes no time getting passengers to their destination. At this speed, the Legacy 450 can carry four passengers and two pilots nearly 3,000 nautical miles, leaving room for reserve fuel as well. This speed and distance can be achieved at more than 40,000 feet as well.
The Legacy 450 offers the ability to carry four passengers and two pilots from Miami to NYC nearly three times without having to refuel. Pair this with the cabin comforts of a five-star hotel, and the Legacy 450 outperforms its competition. Embraer has built the Legacy 450 to get you anywhere in a timely and fashionable manner.
