Expanding his global reach in business and philanthropy in 2012 with the purchase of his Embraer Legacy 650, Chan became an ambassador for the Brazil-based aircraft manufacturer and looks to further expedite a hectic international schedule with his latest aeronautical acquisition.
A best-in-class carrier, the Legacy 500, which starts at $20 million, is the first executive jet of its size to feature side-stick flight controls. And at the vanguard of visual displays, the cockpit is equipped with a Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite. The latest Legacy is powered by two Honeywell HTF7500E engines and can cruise at up to 45,000 feet with a range of 3,596 miles (with four passengers), giving it the ability to travel from Los Angeles to Honolulu, nonstop. The 12-passenger jet’s 6-foot-tall, flat-floor cabin (pressurized to an altitude of 6,000 feet) includes a surround-sound, high-definition entertainment system and eight club seats that transition to four beds for long hauls.
