Embraer Executive Jets’ Legacy 450 has received type certification from EASA. The aircraft has met or surpassed all design goals, exceeding targets such as range, runway performance, hot-and-high takeoff distance and maximum payload. Conclusion of the process in Europe follows the recent certification granted by the Brazilian and US aviation agencies.
“This is a great achievement that paves the way for deliveries to begin in the member states of the European Union as well as in EASA-associated countries,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
The mid-light Legacy 450 has a range of up to 2,575 nautical miles. It offers seating for up to nine passengers. Production of the aircraft has begun and the first delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015.
