Legacy 500

Overview

Initially called the MSJ (Mid-Size Jet) Concept at NBAA 2007, the Legacy 500 was officially launched at EBACE in 2008, along with its smaller sibling, the Legacy 450. It can be configured to carry up to 12 passengers, and can carry eight passengers over 2,800 nautical miles (5,190 km), or four passengers over 3,000 nautical miles (5,600 km). The first prototype – S/N 00001 – was rolled out on December 23, 2011 to begin ground testing and systems evaluation. Embraer's originally announced timeline for first flight and certification of the Legacy 500 had to be revised because software development for the aircraft's fly-by-wire control system was running behind schedule. Rockwell Collins is supplying its Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics suite for the Legacy 500's cockpit. The first engine run test was completed on January 17, 2012. First flight happened on November 27th, 2012. Certification of the Legacy 500 is currently planned for late 2013.
