Embraer will participate in the sixth Russian International Business Aviation Exhibition, JetExpo 2011, at Vnukovo-3 Business Aviation Center, in Moscow, Russia, September 14-16. The company will promote its full portfolio of executive jets and will showcase the light Phenom 300, the large Legacy 650 and the ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jets in static display.
“One year after having officially introduced the Lineage 1000 at JetExpo 2010, we are pleased to participate, again, this year, in Russia’s premier business aviation event, presenting the new Legacy 650,” said Colin Steven, Vice President, Marketing and Sales – Europe, Middle-East and Africa, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Legacy 650 is the most valued large aircraft for the Russian market, with its long-range capability, the comfort of its three distinct cabin zones, and the large baggage compartment. Our market share continues to grow in Russia, and that’s good testimony of the acceptance of the Legacy 600. We are now looking to deliver the ultra-large Lineage 1000 in that market, as well.”
The large Legacy 650 entered operation in 2010. Based on the successful Legacy 600 platform, it provides longer trips for up to 14 passengers, while maintaining the same level of comfort. Its range of 3,900 nautical miles (7,223 kilometers) with four passengers, or 3,840 nautical miles (7,112 kilometers) with eight passengers, both with NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means that the aircraft can fly nonstop from London (England) to New York (U.S.); Moscow (Russia) to Nairobi (Kenya) or to Anadyr (Russia); Miami (U.S.) to S?o Paulo (Brazil); Singapore to Sydney (Australia); or Mumbai (India) to Central Europe. The Legacy 650 feature advanced navigation capabilities and the Primus Elite™ avionics suite, which incorporates an upgraded graphical user interface, enabling smarter and faster decisions, while reducing pilot workload.
The Company’s expanded portfolio also includes the entry level Phenom 100, the light Phenom 300, the midlight Legacy 450 and the midsize Legacy 500, which are currently under development, the proven super midsize Legacy 600, and the ultra-large Lineage 1000.
