SaxonAir has announced the addition to its extensive fleet, after taking delivery of the brand-new Embraer Legacy 500, G-SUEJ.
Powered by the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite, the Legacy 500 is the first aircraft in its category to feature digital flight controls based on Fly-By-Wire technology. The system is further bolstered with graphical flight planning, auto brakes and Synthetic Vision.
G-SUEJ is the first Legacy 500 to be based in London and SaxonAir chief executive officer, Alex Durand, believes that the aircraft’s class-leading performance and comfort qualities have established a luxurious niche for its customers departing from the nation’s capital.
“The Legacy 500’s capability to take-off from shorter airfields establishes a tremendous opportunity for our customers to travel from airports closer to their destination such as London City Airport, which is notoriously problematic for many other aircraft in its category to operate from.
“Combine this with the aircraft’s ability to fly over 3,000 nautical miles and reach destinations such as Dubai non-stop, the Legacy 500 will facilitate the requirements of practically any business or leisure customer.”
The Legacy 500’s 6 ft. tall and 6 ft. 10 in. wide cabin is amongst the largest in its class and its 110 cubic feet of main baggage capacity, complemented by a generous in-flight accessible baggage compartment and cabin stowage space, enables travelers to carry additional luggage for longer journeys.
“The addition of the Legacy 500 and its exceptional qualities to our already versatile fleet demonstrates our commitment and ability to deliver the most modern, advanced and luxurious experience for our customers,” continued Durand.
“With its functionality to berth its six club seats and spacious divan into four beds for longer journeys, the Legacy 500 will deliver a complete solution to our customers.
“Combine this with the Legacy 500’s cabin altitude of just 6,000 feet at high altitude and reputation as a leading player for exceptionally low cabin noise, our customers will arrive at their destination feeling increasingly refreshed.”
