Embraer Executive Jets unveiled a new version of its Legacy 650 large business jet, the Legacy 650E. Featuring automation and technology updates, the aircraft, which already has exceptional operational costs and the largest cabin in its class, now carries an unprecedented 10-year or 10,000-flight hour warranty, which is the longest in the business jet industry. The entry into service is scheduled for 2017 at the list price of US$ 25.9 million.

“As a testament to our confidence in the Legacy 650’s heritage of robustness and near-perfect dispatch reliability, this new aircraft carries the longest warranty available in the business jet industry,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Whether for commercial or private operations, there is no large-cabin aircraft that is more economical, durable and comfortable. This is truly a well-rounded value proposition.”

With a restyled seat upholstery, the Legacy 650E’s spacious cabin features three distinct cabin zones with ample privacy, plus the exclusive option for a separate crew lavatory in the forward cabin.

Refinements to the aircraft fight deck include the Synthetic Vision System (SVS), as part of the latest Primus Elite Advanced Features (PEAF) from Honeywell, which also includes traffic collision avoidance system symbology and XM ground-based weather information to the moving map, providing pilots with enhanced situational awareness. In addition to the PEAF, the Legacy 650E also comes with autothrottle as standard equipment, improving the level of automation and reducing the cockpit workload. These technologies complement the proven Legacy 650E avionics system, which is compliant with all next-generation airspace mandates and requirements.

Besides that, two iPads with mounting systems are available in the cockpit, enabling pilots to enjoy a friendlier interface, easier updates and a full range of other tools to support their operation. These features reduce cockpit workload and create a more intuitive environment with the technological conveniences that pilots desire.

The large Legacy 650E comfortably carries up to 14 passengers with privacy in three distinct cabin zones with premium acoustic comfort. In addition to the best-in-class galley and a fully accessible in-flight baggage compartment that is larger than most ultra-long-range business jets, the aircraft may be configured with up to two lavatories. The Legacy 650E features internet connectivity and the latest generation in full HD in-flight entertainment, with Honeywell’s Ovation Select entertainment and cabin management system. The aircraft has a range of 3,900 nautical miles (7,223 kilometers) with four passengers, with NBAA IFR fuel reserves.

The Legacy 650E is the first aircraft to offer a 10-year or 10,000-flight hour warranty for systems and components (OEM and supplier), matching the warranty period to that of the airframe. This is now the longest warranty in the industry. The interior warranty remains the same at 2 years, as does exterior paint at 2 years or 1,000 hours, engines at 5 years or 2,500 hours, APU at 5 years, 3,000 hours or 6,000 cycles, and avionics at 5 years or 5,000 hours.
