Presented for the first time in May 2014 in Geneva for EBACE, deliveries of the Legacy 500 started shortly afterwards. The fuselage is very similar to the Legacy 450 but with extra cabin length. Available in an 8, 9 or 10 seats configuration, the cabin has a very elegant design realized by BMW Designworks - that also crafted the interios of the Phenom 100E and 300.
An excellent addition to the Embraer fleet, this aircraft is ideal for flyers that need coast to coast range capacity but wouldn't have the use for the extra seats available on the bigger Legacy 600 and 650. It will allow you to fly from Abu Dhabi to Milan or from Kuala Lumpur to Toyko without needing to refuel.
