Embraer's Legacy 450 executive jet awarded Brazilian certification

The Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil – ANAC) today granted type certification for the Legacy 450 mid-light executive jet during a ceremony at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE) in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"We are especially thrilled with the Legacy 450 certification, delivering on our commitment to reach this milestone just one year after the Legacy 500," said Humberto Pereira, Vice President, Engineering and Technology, Embraer. "The Legacy 450 introduces true innovation in its class. This is also a reward for our teams' passion and dedication to bring this truly revolutionary aircraft to market, and I congratulate each team member for this achievement."

The certification campaign comprised two prototype aircraft, the first with flight test instruments and the second with a production-conforming interior. The commonality between the Legacy 450 and the Legacy 500 is around 95%. Production of the Legacy 450 has already begun and the first delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015.

"We are very pleased to confirm that all Legacy 450 design goals have been achieved or exceeded," said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. "This aircraft is also a game changer in the mid-light segment. With better speed, range and field performance than originally planned, the Legacy 450 sets a new standard for its class."

Embraer expects to receive certification from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) in the upcoming weeks and from the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) thereafter.
