Flexjet will add an Embraer Legacy 450 midsized program to its current new-aircraft collection.

“With the program being launched this month, Flexjet is offering a real-time solution to current and prospective owners in need of a more spacious, more capable and more technologically advanced midsized aircraft.”

Kenn Ricci, chairman of Flexjet said: “With the program being launched this month, Flexjet is offering a real-time solution to current and prospective owners in need of a more spacious, more capable and more technologically advanced midsized aircraft.”

Flexjet’s midsized program will use the Legacy 450 as its principal aircraft. Flexjet is finalising the development of the Flexjet-exclusive LXi artisan interiors for the Legacy 450, with deliveries of the aircraft beginning in 2016.

In terms of size, the Legacy 450 will fit in the centre of Flexjet’s fleet: The niche between the super light Learjet 75LXi and the super midsized Challenger 350. Further increasing the aircraft’s appeal, it will be offered as part of Flexjet’s premium LXi Cabin Collection, with the finest luxury interiors.

“We know that current and prospective owners are seeking cabins that are larger and more luxurious than those typically found in this category, complemented by the newest technology and optimized performance.”

Michael Silvestro, chief executive officer of Flexjet added: “We know that current and prospective owners are seeking cabins that are larger and more luxurious than those typically found in this category, complemented by the newest technology and optimized performance. We are thrilled to bring the innovative Legacy midsized cabin solution to the market starting this month.”

The Legacy 450 has the ability to take off from airfields as short as 3,825 feet, the Legacy 450 can fly at altitudes as high as 45,000 feet and will have a range of approximately 2,600 nautical miles with four passengers, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves.

The Flexjet edition of the Legacy 450 offers a flat-floor cabin and features seating for eight passengers. In addition, the fully reclining club seats may be converted into a lie-flat bed for complete rest, as needed.

The Embraer midsized aircraft will join Flexjet’s LXi Cabin Collection, which also includes the Learjet 75, the Challenger 350, the Global Express and Gulfstream’s G450, G500 and G650.

Flexjet also announces that it is accelerating deliveries of the Gulfstream G450 business jet in response to heavy market demand for long-range international travel. This accelerated delivery schedule is part of an order placed for up to 50 new aircraft from Gulfstream’s iconic line of business jets which includes the G450, G500 and G650.
