Embraer Legacy 500 receives EASA certification

Yesterday, Brazilian airframer Embraer received certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for it’s latest business jet, the Legacy 500. This approval enables entry into service of the aircraft in the Member States of the European Union as well as in EASA associated countries.

The Legacy 500 received certification from Brazil’s ANAC (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) in August and from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) in October. The aircraft will now be able to operate in Europe, Brazil, United States and in countries that require EASA or FAA certification.
