Embraer Executive Jets' Legacy 450 makes successful first flight

Embraer Executive Jets' newest aircraft, the Legacy 450, made a successful first flight today. Embraer test pilots Eduardo Camelier and Eugênio Cará, supported by flight test engineer Carlos Kobayashi, flew the aircraft for one hour and thirty-five minutes, conducting the evaluation of handling and performance characteristics.

“Besides setting a new standard in business aviation, delivering innovations that reflect our vision, our commitment to customers, and our passion for excellence, I congratulate all Embraer people for achieving this important Legacy 450 program milestone on the scheduled date” said Frederico Fleury Curado, Embraer President and CEO. 
“The Legacy 450 will be the best-in-class mid-light business jet, responding to the needs and wishes of customers worldwide,” said Marco Túlio Pellegrini, Senior Vice President Operations and COO, Embraer Executive Jets. “With full fly-by-wire technology and the roomiest cabin in its category, this aircraft will deliver unique features and amenities.”
The maiden flight covered a significant range of the flight envelope and allowed for a variety of inflight systems tests, benefiting from an advanced campaign of flight simulations and extensive ground tests. “The flight was a success,” said Capt. Camelier. “The full fly-by-wire system, with side stick flight controls, made the flight very smooth. With the advanced avionics suite, the aircraft operation was very easy and intuitive.”
