Founded in 1995, Flexjet offers fractional private jet ownership and leasing options for those who want to take to the skies at a moment’s notice. The company is now expanding its aviation footprint by taking deliveries of Embraer’s Legacy 450 business jet, adding five to the Flexjet fleet by year’s end.
The midsize business jet, which features a 6-foot-tall cabin and sound-reducing design elements, has been recently FAA-approved for nonstop coast-to-coast flights and other extended-range routes, such as Los Angeles to Honolulu. Fully reclining seats (that convert to lie-flat beds) offer spacious club seating for up to eight guests. Powered by fuel-efficient, reduced-emissions Honeywell HTF7500E engines, the aircraft has a cruising speed of 536 mph and a cruising altitude of 45,000 feet.
Flexjet—which is the first fractional fleet provider to offer the Legacy 450—will celebrate the milestone with a national tour this fall. (flexjet.com)
