Legacy 450


Convinced that good is never really good enough, we started with a clean sheet of paper to design the Legacy 450, stablemate to the record shattering Legacy 500. The result: a new cutting-edge corporate jet that transcends all others in the mid-light class. It is truly a remarkable union of technology and design offering digital flight controls with full fly-by-wire, the largest-in-class stand-up cabin, and class-leading stowage capacity and speed. It’s the kind of aircraft that emerges from not listening to conventional thinking – and instead, redefining what’s possible. Read More
