Embraer Legacy 450 Mid-Light Executive Jet Receives Type Certification from the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency
Embraer announced that they have received type certification from the Brazilian Civil Agency (ANAC) for its Legacy 450 mid-light executive jet. The company was granted certification at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE) in São Paulo, Brazil. The approval campaign included two prototype aircraft featuring flight test instruments and production-conforming interiors, respectively.
According to Embraer, the Legacy 450 and 500 are nearly 95% similar and the company plans on starting deliveries of the 450 model at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
"This aircraft is also a game-changer in the mid-light segment,” said Embraer Executive Jets CEO and President Marco Túlio Pellegrini in a statement. “With better speed, range and field performance than originally planned, the Legacy 450 sets a new standard for its class."
Embraer engineering and technology vice president Humberto Pereira said:
"We are especially thrilled with the Legacy 450 certification, delivering on our commitment to reach this milestone just one year after the Legacy 500. The Legacy 450 introduces true innovation in its class."
Powered by two Honeywell HTF 7500E turbofan engines, the Legacy 450 will incorporate fly-by-wire technology, including side-stick flight controls, and a Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite with four 15.1in LCD displays. The aircraft will have a range of 4,769km, and fly at maximum altitude of 45,000ft.
