Embraer Executive Jets has delivered the first Legacy 500 mid-size jet to a customer in Mexico. The aircraft will be operated by Transpaís Aéreo, a subsidiary of the Lomex Group Aeronautics Division. The Legacy 500 was awarded type certification from Mexican’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority in June 2015.
Transpaís Aéreo’s executive aviation services include preventive and corrective maintenance, aircraft management, chartering, aircraft storage and FBO services. “We are very proud to receive the first Legacy 500 in Mexico,” said Hector Gonzalez, general director of Transpaís Aéreo. “It will strengthen our relationship with Embraer products, being the largest Embraer Executive Jets operator in our country. We are sure that the Legacy 500 will be successful because of its exceptional performance and the comfortable attributes it provides.”
The Legacy 500 has a 6ft flat-floor cabin, and features eight club seats that can be berthed into four beds. The IFE system consists of an HD video system, surround sound, multiple audio and video input options, a CMS, and three options for voice communications and connectivity. The Legacy 500 has a range of 3,125 nautical miles with four passengers, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves. The first delivery of this aircraft type was made in the last quarter of 2014.
