Landing at short fields is the Legacy 500’s speciality, with just (647 m) needd to land safely, which is significantly less than it’s main competitors. This gives the aircraft an advantage meaning it can land at more airports, than others in its class.

The Legacy is spacious compared to the others in its class. Entertainment is the Honeywell Ovation Select Cabin Managemant System, which includes Wi-Fi connectivity.

We were fortunate to be able to take a look around it whilst it was at Manchester Airport. It’s a beautiful aircraft which is becoming typical of Embraer and no doubt it will give its competitors some serious problems in the charter market.
