A new Embraer Legacy 650 has been ordered by a customer based in the Middle East. The aircraft is scheduled to be received at the end of 2015 and will be managed by Titan Aviation Group.
“The owner currently owns a Legacy 600 and decided to upgrade to a Legacy 650 as he has been very pleased with Embraer’s supportive partnership,” said Captain Sakeer Sheik, managing director of Titan Aviation Group. “The Legacy 650 was chosen because of its range, reliability, low cost of operation, comfort and its ability to land in airports such as London City. With this new Legacy 650 order, Titan Aviation will be managing three Embraer executive jets in the Middle East and in India on behalf of the respective owners.”
The Legacy 650 is an enhanced version of the Legacy 600 with longer range, lower cabin noise and the latest interior and avionics features. It entered into service in late 2010. The Legacy 650 carries up to 14 passengers with privacy in three distinct cabin zones. Features include internet connectivity and full HD IFE, with Honeywell’s Ovation Select IFE/CMS system. The aircraft has a range of 3,900 nautical miles with four passengers, with NBAA IFR fuel reserves. Other highlights include a baggage compartment that is accessible in flight, and the possibility to configure the aircraft with two lavatories.
“This aircraft can fly non-stop from the main cities in the Middle East to London,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, president and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “We have about 45 business jets in the Middle East and about 60% of this fleet are Legacy 650s or Legacy 600s, which is a testament to the aircraft’s popularity.”
