A pilot’s dream cockpit

The Legacy 450 is the only jet in its class to replace conventional controls with full Fly-By-Wire technology.

The Fly-By-Wire system offers complete envelope protection, preventing control commands that exceed the jet’s operational limits. The system also enables pilots to deliver an ultra-smooth flight experience and reduces the pilots' workload.

The flight deck features a dark-and-quiet design philosophy, large displays, and improved ergonomics to reduce pilot fatigue. The optional Embraer Enhanced Vision System (E2VS) further lessens pilots' workload and boosts their situational awareness.

Extraordinary performance

Traveling at Mach 0.83, the Legacy 450 is the fastest mid-light corporate jet in the air. It can take off and land on short runways, giving you access to more airports worldwide. Incredibly, the aircraft can climb directly to 43,000 ft. (13,106 m.) in only 22 minutes, departing from the sea level with maximum takeoff weight.  The Legacy 450's flight altitude is 45,000 ft. (13,716 m.).

Biggest cabin in its class

At 6-feet (1.83 m.) tall and 24-feet (7.32 m.) long, with a flat floor, the Legacy 450’s cabin is the largest in its class. Two center club seats fully berth to create beds, so you can catch up with your sleep on flights. The other seats, available with optional heating and massage, swivel and offer lateral and forward movement. Seats a total of up to 9 passengers.

Carries everything you want to bring

The Legacy 450 has both an internal stowage compartment that is accessible in-flight as well as an external baggage compartment. Combined storage capacity is 150 cubic feet (4.25 cubic meters), by far the largest in its class. You can fit everyone’s luggage with room to spare for skis and golf clubs.

Unparalleled luxury

The refreshment center offers a wide range of options including microwave oven and coffee brewer. The Legacy 450 is the only mid-light business jet with an optional wet galley. The wet galley features hot and cold water with a large ice drawer and optional crystal, china, and silverware.

Most manufacturers have avoided taking the risk of developing high-technology control systems for all but the top-of-the-range aircraft sectors. It would have been easy to stick with mechanical systems, but Embraer has now made the leap of faith and imagination.
