LEGACY 500: LEAPS AND BOUNDS BET­TER THAN OTH­ERS

Flying - - TRENDING -

“The cock­pit de­sign in the Legacy 500 is clean, dark and quiet, which is very nice. Every­thing’s at 12 o’clock. The flight deck is ef­fi­cient in lay­out, very easy for a pi­lot to get the air­plane started and avion­ics loaded. As far as us­ing the side­stick and fly­ing the Legacy 500, it re­ally is amaz­ing. You can have the air­plane go to a cer­tain po­si­tion and it’ll hold that po­si­tion in flight. It’s re­ally neat. In most air­planes, you have the yoke in the mid­dle; it can be very con­fin­ing. We had a long trip, about five hours and 45 min­utes, and I re­mem­ber that trip, in the cock­pit, I was able to cross my legs. I looked over at the other pi­lot and said ‘Boy, this is nice. When was the last time you were able to cross your legs in the cock­pit?’ And you’re able to do that in the Legacy 500. The pas­sen­gers are re­ally taken aback, es­pe­cially on take­off. And they’re shocked at how quickly we get to al­ti­tude and also how steep of a climb we’re do­ing. They’re re­ally im­pressed by that. They’re like ‘Wow, that’s pretty amaz­ing.’” - Brad Knaack, Legacy 500 Pi­lot Watch Brad’s story and re­quest more in­for­ma­tion at Em­braerEx­ec­u­tiveJets.com/Brad
