– Embraer delivered a Legacy 600 executive jet to Dubai’s Titan Aviation, in the United Arab Emirates, during a ceremony held at the Company’s headquarters, today, in São José dos Campos, Brazil. The jet belongs to an undisclosed customer, and will be added to Titan’s portfolio of managed and operated aircraft, which includes two Legacy 600s, as well as a Lineage 1000 scheduled to be delivered in 2012.
“Titan Aviation has become a significant partner of Embraer, and we wish them great success with this third Legacy 600,” said Colin Steven, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Europe, the Middle East and Africa – Executive Jets. “Embraer will continue supporting their operations, and we look forward to having them return soon for more deliveries.”
“On Titan’s sixth anniversary, it is a pleasure to come back to Embraer to take delivery of this third Legacy 600. Our operations with this aircraft are very successful, not only because it is a proven and reliable platform, but also due to the tremendous support provided by Embraer all over the world,” said Capt. Sakeer C. Sheik, Managing Director of Titan Aviation. “Our company continues investing in the expansion of its highly qualified staff, in order to better serve our clients and to be prepared for new opportunities.”
At the event, Mr. Ahmed, Director of Maintenance of Titan Aviation, commented that “the Legacy 600 performs excellently, with much less maintenance hassle, in spite of our clients’ high utilization rate. Furthermore, the maintenance tracking support services provided by Embraer, such as Flight Docs and the Embraer Executive Care (EEC) program, are great tools for us to serve our clients in the most efficient ways.”
The first Legacy 600 joined Titan’s fleet in June 2008, frequently flying to London City Airport (LCY), and this would not be possible without the certified steep approach capability. Pilots also have the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), which provides precise aircraft performance calculations and electronic copies of manuals and charts, reducing pilot workload and allowing a paperless cockpit environment.
The second aircraft has proven to be a very important business tool for its owner. Delivered to Titan in July 2009, the jet has already accumulated more than 200 flight hours. The High- Speed Data (HSD) equipment provides a better use of time, increased work productivity, and more entertainment possibilities on frequent seven-hour business flights from Dubai to Europe and to Southeast African destinations.
The third Legacy 600 delivered, today, comfortably accommodates 13 passengers in three distinct cabin zones. The aircraft will be supported by Embraer Executive Care (EEC), the same comprehensive program that has guaranteed high dispatch reliability for the first two Legacy 600s operated by Titan.
