Embraer Of­fers the Long­est War­ranty in the Sky

WHEN EMBRAER EN­TERED THE BUSI­NESS JET MAR­KET IN 2000, it brought to the table its vast ex­pe­ri­ence in cre­at­ing and ser­vic­ing com­mer­cial air­lin­ers. Two years later, the first Embraer Legacy busi­ness jet took to the skies, promis­ing cus­tomers the re­li­a­bil­ity and main­te­nance ca­pa­bil­i­ties that com­mer­cial air­lines highly val­ued. The path to­wards be­com­ing a world-class busi­ness jet maker was forged.

Embraer’s lat­est en­trant is the re­sult of another com­bi­na­tion — the Legacy 650E, fus­ing the best char­ac­ter­is­tics of Embraer’s pop­u­lar Legacy 600 and

650. While safety, per­for­mance, com­fort and price are key fac­tors for a buyer, re­li­a­bil­ity helps seal the deal. And this is what makes the Legacy 650E turn heads and spur in­sider con­ver­sa­tion — Embraer is so con­fi­dent in the air­craft that it has of­fered a 10-year or 10,000-hour sys­tems and com­po­nents war­ranty as part of the 650E’s stan­dard pack­age.

It is some­thing never be­fore been of­fered for a busi­ness jet. The man­u­fac­turer’s con­fi­dence stems from the fact that the 650E is a vari­ant of the 650, which has a “her­itage of ro­bust­ness and near-per­fect dis­patch re­li­a­bil­ity”, says Marco Tulio Pel­le­grini, Pres­i­dent & CEO, Embraer Ex­ec­u­tive Jets. The Legacy 650E com­bines the de­sign char­ac­ter­is­tics of the su­per mid­size Legacy 600 with the range of the large-cabin Legacy 650. It means it can ac­com­plish even steep ap­proaches and hot and high per­for­mance, while main­tain­ing low op­er­at­ing costs.

At the same time, the 650E in­creases the value of­fer with the same list price as the 600, yet of­fer­ing sub­stan­tial up­grades to the flight deck and pas­sen­ger cabin. These in­clude auto-throt­tle, which not only sim­pli­fies the pi­lots’ job, but also im­proves fuel ef­fi­ciency. Syn­thetic Vi­sion Sys­tem (SVS) is also now a stan­dard fea­ture, as part of the new­est ver­sion of Honey­well’s Primus Elite Ad­vanced Fea­tures pack­age. SVS pro­vides pi­lots with a com­puter-gen­er­ated view of what’s ahead, mak­ing lowvis­i­bil­ity op­er­a­tions sig­nif­i­cantly safer. Two iPads come

with mount­ing sys­tems, mak­ing it eas­ier for pi­lots to pe­ruse them for crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion.

Even if pas­sen­gers don’t no­tice the flight deck en­hance­ments, they will ap­pre­ci­ate the cabin up­grades. With room for up to 14 pas­sen­gers, the cabin can be seg­mented into three dis­tinct zones. A fully equipped gal­ley will keep hunger at bay, even for flights of up to nine hours, given the Legacy 650E’s range of 3,900 nm (plus NBAA IFR re­serves). It is enough to fly non-stop be­tween Sin­ga­pore and Sydney.

Whether pas­sen­gers choose to work or re­lax, time aboard the Legacy 650E will fly by with Honey­well’s Ova­tion Se­lect en­ter­tain­ment and cabin man­age­ment sys­tem. It pro­vides Wi-Fi in­ter­net ac­cess, as well as full HD in-flight en­ter­tain­ment. For added com­fort, the Legacy 650E has room for two lava­to­ries, and pro­vides di­rect ac­cess to the in-flight bag­gage com­part­ment.

And should Legacy 650E cus­tomers re­ally need to avail of the unique 10-year, 10,000-hour war­ranty for OEM and sup­plier sys­tems and com­po­nents, ser­vice is avail­able from one of Embraer’s 46 ser­vice cen­tres around the world — in­clud­ing 14 in Asia-Pa­cific.

The Legacy 650E is sched­uled to en­ter ser­vice with its launch cus­tomer in the first quar­ter of this year.
