Embraer and China’s Minsheng Financial Leasing signed a
firm order for 13 Legacy 650 executive jets at the 64th Annual NBAA
Meeting & Convention, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first aircraft
is expected to be delivered by the end of this year, with the rest
making the journey to Asia within the next five years.
The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding back in
July for up to 20 aircraft ranging from entry level Phenoms to the
ultra-large executive jets.
The Legacy 650, which entered service in late 2010, has a range
of 3,900 nautical miles, and can fly with four passengers, under
NBAA IFR conditions, nonstop from Beijing (China) to Dubai (United
Arab Emirates), from Hong Kong (China) to Adelaide (Australia), or
from Dubai to London (UK).
The aircraft features the highly integrated Honeywell Primus
Elite avionics suite, which greatly reduces pilot workload and
enhances flight safety.
Embraer executives said that the Minsheng order marks a
significant advancement, not only in terms of partnership between
the two parties, but also in terms of Embraer’s business
development in China. The deal demonstrates strong confidence in
our Legacy 650 by Chinese industrial players and reaffirms
Embraer’s belief in this strong and promising market.
