  • Fly-by-wire

    The Legacy 500 is the first jet in its class to replace conventional controls with full fly-by-wire technology. This technology enables a smoother, more natural feeling flight by translating the manual  input from the pilot electronically rather than mechanically.  Electronic fly-by-wire systems increase the number of control surfaces that can be actuated simultaneously.  This allows for maximum performance and control, while at the same time, reducing the pilot workload and creating a smoother flight for passengers. Additional flight envelope protection also increases flight safety.  The Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 fly-by-wire system has received a prestigious Flightglobal Achievement Award in the Innovator of the Year category 2010.
