Paris, France, April 17, 2014
– Embraer Commercial Aviation and Embraer Executive Jets will promote their respective portfolios of products and services at the Marrakech Airshow 2014, which will be held at the Royal Military Air Base, Menara Airport of Marrakech, Morocco, from April 23-26.
At the fourth edition of the show, Embraer Executive Jets will debut its Legacy 500 on the African continent. Scheduled to enter into service in the first half of this year, the clean-sheet-design midsize aircraft is the first in its class with full fly-by-wire technology, and a six-foot flat-floor cabin, even wider than some aircraft in the category above.
With a range of 3,000 nautical miles, the Legacy 500 can fly eight passengers nonstop from Marrakech to Luanda or to Riyadh, to Moscow or to Gander, with NBAA IFR reserves. At the static display, the Company will also showcase its Phenom 300 light jet, the industry’s most delivered business aircraft in 2013, and the large Legacy 650, the business jet with the highest utilization rate in the market.
Embraer Commercial Aviation will hold a press conference on Wednesday, April 23 at 2:00 pm, in the Conference Room, Hall C, and will exhibit its portfolio in Stand D-21, Hall D. Embraer Executives Jets will meet with customers and guests in Chalet No 5.
