Embraer’s Legacy 450 recieves Brazilian certification

Brazilian airframer Embraer has recieved type certification for it’s Legacy 450 mid-light executive jet from the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil – ANAC) yesterday at a ceremony at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (LABACE) in São Paulo, Brazil.

The flight test program was carried out with two prototype aircraft, the first with flight test instruments and the second with a production-conforming interior. The commonality between the Legacy 450 and the Legacy 500 is around 95%. Production of the Legacy 450 has already begun and the first delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Embraer expects to receive certification from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) in the upcoming weeks and from the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) thereafter.
