Embraer Executive Jets on Tuesday announced that Dallas-based Flexjet LLC, a leading provider of fractional jet ownership services, received its first Legacy 500 business jet.
“It’s a great privilege to have been selected by Flexjet for the expansion of its world-class fleet,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Legacy 500, and soon the Legacy 450, will deliver true innovation to Flexjet customers, and we are committed to providing the highest level of customer support and service.”
Flexjet Chief Executive Officer Michael Silvestro said, “We know that current and prospective Owners are seeking cabins that are larger and more luxurious than those typically found in this category, complemented by the newest technology and optimized performance. We are thrilled to bring the innovative Legacy midsized cabin solution to the market starting this month.”
Flexjet’s fractional program already features the Embraer Phenom 300 light jet.
Since certification by Brazil’s ANAC (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) in August 2014, the Legacy 500 has been certified by another five aviation authorities in the U.S., Mexico, the European Union, the Middle East, and Australia.
