Let’s start with some numbers
The Legacy 650 was first released in November 2010, with its first model sold to the U.K. Embraer, the Brazilian aviation manufacturer released the Legacy 650 as an upgraded version of 2002’s Legacy 600! It’s an excellent long-range aircraft with a reasonable buying price currently around 27.5 million dollars.
The length of the jet is 86 feet, its width is 69 feet and its height is 22 feet. The cabin (not including the cockpit) is 42.5 feet long and 6.9 feet wide. The headroom of the cabin is 6 feet, which is all that you need to stand up properly.
The maximum fuel capacity of the aircraft is 20,600 pounds. The Legacy 650 empty weight is 16000 pounds. It can, when needed, take off as heavy as 53,572 pounds. It is equipped with two Rolls-Royce AE 3007 A2 engines which are capable of 9000 pounds of thrust. These allow the Legacy 650 to get to its operational altitude of 41000 feet very quickly.
Thanks to its Rolls-Royce engines the Legacy 650 can land on runways 2,840 feet long after flying for more than 7 hours. Its maximum range is 3900 nautical miles at a speed of 515 knots.
Embraer has fitted their newer Legacy 650 with Honeywell Primus Elite™ avionics. That means better flexibility when weather conditions are rough or when flying into a busy airspace or airports whose access is difficult. To make things easier for the pilots that technology includes SmartRunway™ and SmartLanding™.
A Legacy 650 is generally flown by a crew of two but it can seat a third pilot in the cockpit. The design of the cockpit is as ergonomic as it comes. The new LCD displays make reading flight information even easier. It also has XM weather capabilities and electronic charts and maps.
The Legacy 650 is an upgraded version of the Legacy 600 which is why their appearance is so similar. However, the Legacy 600 is not capable of long-range flight like the newer 650.
Travelling in an Embraer Legacy 650
The Legacy 650 cabin can change configuration to fit your needs, tastes or amounts of passengers. You can, as a maximum, seat 14 passengers however, the 13 passengers configuration is more common. The jet has great berthing capabilities, as you can see on the pictures below, so don’t be afraid to take a nap when you’re flying at night. Internet access and on board entertainment is available as standard.
It is also possible to add an extra lavatory at the front. It’s also fairly noticeable when you’re on board that the Legacy 650 has larger than average windows, so you can enjoy the view! As you probably already noticed, there is also a considerable amount of room reserved for luggage storing.
