The Embraer Legacy 450 is a midsize business jet built by Embraer.
The first flight of this business jet occurred in 2013, with FAA certification received in 2015. Similar to Legacy 500 but slightly smaller, this model is the only aircraft under $50 million with fly-by-wire technology. Embraer presented an upgraded version at the October 2018 NBAA convention, the Praetor 500, which will gradually replace the Legacy 450. The Praetor 500, valued at around $ 17 million, will primarily increase the reach of the Legacy. 450 thanks to a larger tank and better aerodynamics of the winglets. Owners of the Legacy 450 will have the possibility to upgrade their aircraft to the Praetor 500 configuration.
The Embraer Legacy 450 has a range of 5’371km and will easily and comfortably take you from Basel-Mulhouse to Doha or from Vienna to Almaty. The fly-by-wire technology reduces the workload of the pilots by automatizing some tasks - this translates to a smoother ride for the passengers, notably in case of turbulence. Due to use of more-than-double the standard amount of sound-dampening insulation, this midsize jet provides travellers with a peaceful and quiet work or relaxation experience. Instead of fans to circulate the air around the cabin, this jet uses compressed air, constantly gathered from the sky throughout every flight. This means that the cabin is constantly supplied with fresh air, making the journey even more enjoyable.
The Legacy 450 can sit from 7 up to a maximum of 9 passengers depending on the configuration. The cabin is extremely well lit - the executive club four has 3 windows on each side.Pictures courtesy of our friends at Embraer.
