Embraer SA Announces First Flight of Legacy 500


Wednesday, 28 Nov 2012 06:13am EST 

Embraer SA announced that on November 27, 2012 its midsize Legacy 500 made a successful first flight, marking the beginning of its flight test program. Deliveries of the first aircraft are expected to begin in 2014. Embraer test pilots Mr. Mozart Louzada and Mr. Eduardo Camelier with flight test engineers Mr. Gustavo Paixao and Mr. Alexandre Figueiredo flew the aircraft for one hour and 45 minutes, performing handling and performance characteristics evaluation. As a result of the simulation use and ground testing, the aircraft was able to cover a significant flight envelope on the maiden flight. Aircraft systems were assessed including landing gear retraction. The Legacy 500 is the first midsize business jet incorporating a fly-by-wire control system and full six-foot, stand-up cabin with a flat floor. The midsize Legacy 500 will be followed by Embraer’s fourth clean-sheet design, the mid-light Legacy 450, which will enter service one year later. The Legacy 500 is powered by two advanced, fuel-efficient Honeywell HTF 7500E turbofan engines, each capable of producing 6,540 pounds of thrust. The aircraft features Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics with synthetic vision.
