Experience the Legacy 500: Virtual Tour

  • Innovation
    The Legacy 500 is the new definition of midsize jets. Its advanced technology and avionics give you a flight experience like no other. Full fly-by-wire controls and the advanced Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion™ platform puts pilots in complete control.

  • Comfort
    At 6 ft. tall and 6 ft. 10 in. wide, the cabin of the Legacy 500 is the largest in its class. With a fully-equipped galley, excellent connectivity and in-flight entertainment, and the finest attention to comfort details, relaxing is effortless.

  • Ergonomics
    Optimally placed windows, ergonomic seating and cabin technology, create total elegance in the cabin. In the cockpit, a side-stick control and full fly-by-wire flight control system deliver the smoothest flight for both pilots and passengers.

  • Performance
    The Legacy 500 is the only midsize jet that can carry eight travelers so far. Flying the US coast-to-coast mission at Mach 0.80, even against 99% of annual winds, and still land with NBAA IFR fuel reserves, is only the start.
