The Brazilian producer Embraer hoisted the first Legacy 450 which is brought together at the American enterprise in Melbourne, the State of Florida in air. It is expected that this plane will be delivered to the operator from the USA until the end of the current year. Legacy 450 – the third type of the aircraft which is exhausted by the American division of Embraer after Phenom 100 and 300.
Embraer says that will increase assembly of Legacy in the USA gradually: in 2016 it will be built one plane, and in 2017.
Embraer started assembly production in Melbourne at the beginning of 2011 with Phenom 100 which Phenom 300 followed in August, 2012. Assembly of Legacy at the American plant began in June, 2016, and then the producer transferred assembly of all planes of the Phenom family the United States. Now Legacy 450 and 500 gather in Brazil and the USA, but the planes constructed in Brazil are intended for clients from Latin America, and “American” – for the whole world. Unlike the Phenom family for which all structural knots are delivered from Brazil side panels of the Legacy planes are made in Evora, Portugal.
In only five years of work of the plant in the USA the company made about 200 Phenom planes here.
