The first deliveries of the Legacy 500 occurred in early 2014 as Embraer launched their first ever aircraft to have a revolutionary fly-by-wire cockpit, intended to fill the gap between their larger Legacy aircraft and the Phenom series. It is also the first Super Midsize Jet with full fly-by-wire technology, providing improved comfort, efficiency and stability. Embraer designed the 500 with one objective: to become the leader of its class. In terms of its interior, the Legacy 500 offers a wider and longer cabin than any other Super Midsize jet in existence, providing unparalleled space and comfort. Designed by BMW, the cabin features typical seating for up to 10 passengers and premium seats are available which include electrically actuated lumbar support and massage and heating systems, not seen on any other jet in the category. The Legacy 500 does not compromise performance for its luxurious cabin as it offers an excellent range and maximum cruise, thanks to its two state-of-the-art turbofan engines, which are more fuel-efficient than those of the majority of its rivals. Fast, efficient and extremely comfortable; the Legacy 500 provides an exceptional service.
