Embraer’s Legacy 650 large executive jet has received certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The US FAA approval follows Brazilian ANAC (National Civil Aviation Agency) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification in October 2010. “This important approval of our new long range large cabin Legacy 650 executive jet opens the way for the company to better serve not only the U.S market, but also several other countries that require FAA certification,” Executive vice president, Executive Jets, Luís Carlos Affonso said.
The Legacy 650 is an extended-range derivative of Embraer’s Legacy 600 jet. Deliveries began in November 2010, with seven already in operation.
