Embraer launched the Legacy 500 in 2015. Looking to add to the already impressive list of jets in the super mid range (up to nine passengers), Embraer tossed its name into the ring.
The Legacy 500 is the first in its class to offer fly-by-wire integrated technology, along with a stand-up cabin with a flat floor. These subtle features allow the Legacy 500 to lead the pack in the midsize business jet class.
Embraer has long been known for its luxurious line of business jets. The Legacy 500 is no different. The Legacy 500 offers the lowest cabin noise levels of its class, allowing passengers a noise-free ride.
The Legacy 500 offers a six-foot tall cabin with flat floors. This allows the comfort of a spacious cabin with walkability. Along with fantastic creature comforts, the Legacy 500 is also integrated with Honeywell Ovation Cabin Management, which offers passengers a variety of in-cabin entertainment and wireless integration options.
As to be expected, the Legacy 500 is very spacious and comfortable. Measuring six feet tall and almost seven feet wide, the Legacy 500 gives its passengers the full first-class experience.
