A month earlier the similar certificate has been received in the homeland, in Brazil, and in October, 2015 the producer certified a jet in Europe (EASA).
In November, 2015 Embraer has reported about increase in flying range of Legacy 450 up to 5370 km that is 602 km more, than at the version of the airplane certified in August.

The first delivery of the updated version is planned for the third quarter 2016. The company reports that the modernization opportunity will be offered owners who have already received the Legacy 450. To increase flying range, Embraer will make “minor changes” to a wing design to install a bigger fuel tank, and will update the software of aircraft equipment.
