Embraer launched the Legacy 600 in 2000, a transformation of the ERJ-135 commercial airliner, highly-regarded due to its reliability. They added seven-foot winglets to improve lift and reduce drag and the fuel-transfer system was modified, resulting in an extremely high-performance aircraft. This spacious corporate jet features a true VIP cabin, larger than that of its Dassault and Bombardier rivals, which is configured in 3 separate seating areas to easily cater for up to 13 passengers in optimum comfort. The 600 also features the largest baggage compartment of any aircraft in its category, accessible from the main cabin, and is also certified for steep approaches, making it able to land at airfields that many other aircraft can't access. Providing great range and interior luxury, it is no surprise that the Legacy 600 is such a popular Large Business Jet as it provides an excellent service for medium-haul flights.
