The cockpit is clean, and the sidesticks allow for a clear, uninterrupted view of the large displays. Pilots relish the short checklists and reduced workload. And you’ll be impressed by the large windshield and improved visibility from this flight deck. 

Innovative avionics

The Rockwell Collins ProLine Fusion integrated avionics system showcases some of the most advanced avionics available in business aviation today. They include four high-resolution displays, synthetic vision system for enhanced safety, graphical flight planning with advanced flight management system, Embraer Enhanced Vision System (E2VS) for increased situational awareness, Surface Management System (SMS), and more.

Advanced digital flight controls

The Legacy 500 is the only jet in its class to upgrade the conventional flight controls to digital technology. The fly-by-wire system offers complete envelope protection, preventing commands that exceed the jet’s structural limits. It also puts the pilots in more control and helps reduce their overall workload. And everyone enjoys a smoother flight experience.
