A Traveler's Guide to Business Jets: Heavy Aircraft: Embraer Legacy

While national charter operators have yet to add the Embraer Legacy to their fleets, industry professionals believe the price and performance capabilities of the Brazilian aircraft will make this a favorite in the near future. The Legacy, a variant of Embraer’s commercial ERJ-135 regional airliner, can seat 13 passengers in a cabin only slightly smaller than that of a Gulfstream G500, and it is available for approximately half of the American aircraft’s price.
