Legacy 500 Interior


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.

First 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.

Powered By The Best

The Legacy 500 is powered by Honeywell HTF7500E. This allows the Legacy 500 the ability to travel at speeds of up to Mach .80 or 613 mph. Meaning any trip can be done in a timely manner.

While the Legacy 500 surely is fast, its ability to carry passengers long distances is what appeals to customers. The maximum range on the Legacy 500, with four passengers and two crew members, comes out to over 3,100 nm. This makes any destination feasible.


The Legacy offers all the amenities one could want in a luxury midsize business jet. What sets the Legacy 500 apart is its ability to do all these routine tasks at the highest level. The range of over 3,100 nm while the passengers are sitting in better than first-class conditions make the Legacy 500 the go-to jet for businesses.

The upgraded avionics package from Rockwell Collins ensures that pilots have all possible resources to face any obstacle. This, along with the unprecedented fly-by-wire full integration controls, offers the best in class cockpit for pilots.
