Embraer Delivers First Florida-assembled Legacy 500

Embraer Executive Jets delivered the first midsize Legacy 500 assembled at its recently expanded Melbourne, Florida, plant to an undisclosed U.S. customer today.


The facility assembles all Phenoms and some Legacy 450/500s, with the remainder of the midsize jets produced at Embraer’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil.

Besides today’s Legacy 500 handover, the Florida facility has assembled and delivered two Legacy 450s and nearly 260 Phenoms. Embraer has delivered nearly 800 Phenoms and 70 Legacy 450/500s so far. A second Legacy 500 is nearing completion at the Melbourne plant and will be delivered in early December, while a third Legacy 500 will start moving down the production line next week, Embraer Executive Jets managing director and COO Phil Krull told AIN.

The Florida assembly expansion was completed in May last year, adding Legacy 450/500 production to the existing Phenom 100/300 line. It more than doubled the size of the facility, to 149,000 sq ft/124,600 sq m, allowing the Legacy 450/500 and Phenom 100/300 lines to be side-by-side under one roof. The first Legacy 450 started rolling down the line on May 16, 2016.
