Embraer (Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica) – the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer, developed the Legacy 600 business jet on the basis of the regional ERJ-135. After introducing significant changes to the fuselage, new fuel system, engines, etc., the aircraft was certified for landings in the most complicated European airport – London City Airport.
One of the first things that will impress is the cabin size. Comparing to other super-midsize aircraft, 15.2 m long cabin will seem huge. Nevertheless, the usual configuration is designed to accommodate up to 13 pax. The Legacy 600 berthing capability allows every pair of seats to easily be transformed in a sleeping place.
Another thing inherited from the regional jet is the biggest baggage compartment in its class – almost 7 cbm.
According to the crew, the aircraft is behaving quite well in cold regions – about 7 minutes should be enough for warming up the cabin and start working. The full-size galley includes a microwave, an oven, a fridge as well as an ice drawer and all together will permit enjoying the most sophisticated meals onboard.
You can always enjoy the possibility to use the sat phone, listen to your favorite music, watch a movie or explore the global network through the high speed internet access available on the aircraft. Embraer’s executive sky limousine is unmatched by most other aircraft in its class in performance, operation, interior dimensions and passenger amenities. Not a huge aircraft, but everything what is needed for passenger comfort, safety and entertainment has been well thought out.
