A Legacy of Comfort
From Brazilian territory arrives the Legacy 600, which offers the largest and most comfortable cabin in the super mid-size business jet category. Its excellent performance, low operating costs and unmatched reliability make it the customer’s best choice. The Legacy 600 enjoys market acceptance all over the world with more than 100 aircraft in service in 20 countries.
It offers premium comfort and privacy for up to 16 passengers, divided into three seating areas. The standard interiors are characterized for their first class leather seats, a divan, an elegant shelf unit and spacious tables for lunches or meetings. The aircraft has a fully equipped galley for preparing hot and cold meals, a complete bathroom, a wardrobe cabin and store, as well as an entertainment system with DVD players and optional satellite telecommunications equipment.
For even greater comfort, the new mechanical blinds allow passengers to regulate the natural light that enters through the 22 windows. This is achieved by a combination of folding transparent composite blinds, which are easy to operate and can personalize to combine with the interior of each aircraft. The blinds also provide a 100% block of the light and UV protection.
Executives on board can use the High Speed Data equipment and Wi-Fi wireless Internet to send e-mails and files while in flight.
The 6.8m3 baggage hold is one of the largest in the industry and can be accessed easily while in flight. Luggage can also be loaded easily from the outside.
At Mach 0.80
The aircraft offers a cruising speed of up to Mach 0.8 and a range of 3,250 nautical miles (6,019 km or 3,740 miles) carrying 8 passengers in comfort, with fuel reserves. This impressive range enables clients to travel from Mexico City to Seattle (Washington), Lima (Peru), Manaos (Brazil) or to any other city in the US or Canada with lower operating costs than any other com- petitive aircraft with a similar cabin size. Additionally, the Legacy 600 is one of the busi- ness jets certified to operate in and out of London airports.
This model, powered by a pair of engines, is based on the platform of the family of the suc- cessful regional ERJ 145 jet, which has accumulated more than 11 million flying hours with almost 1,000 aircraft. The platform is designed to fly an average of 2,S00 hours per year with low operating costs, at a cost of 25.41 million dollars in its basic version.
Its design allows it to land on runways of 1,700 meters in length so it can operate in the smallest airports in the world. On take-off, it reaches a cruising ceiling of 39,000 feet rapidly before climbing to 41,000 feet for a consistently com- fortable flight.
It can fly efficiently up to 3,250 nautical miles with eight passengers aboard. This range, in combination with a large 40m2 cabin, takes your work team efficiently to where the business opportunities are.
According to the NBAA IFR standards, the Legacy 600 holds enough fuel to change flight plans easily, if necessary, and land at an alterna- tive airport 200 nautical miles from the original destination. Not bad for a model with the legacy of its ancestors.
