São José dos Campos, Brazil, 2015-9-30 — /Travel PR News/ — Embraer Executive Jets today announced that Dallas-based Flexjet LLC, a leading provider of fractional jet ownership services, received its first Legacy 500 business jet.
“It’s a great privilege to have been selected by Flexjet for the expansion of its world-class fleet,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Legacy 500, and soon the Legacy 450, will deliver true innovation to Flexjet customers, and we are committed to providing the highest level of customer support and service.”
Flexjet Chief Executive Officer Michael Silvestro said, “We know that current and prospective Owners are seeking cabins that are larger and more luxurious than those typically found in this category, complemented by the newest technology and optimized performance. We are thrilled to bring the innovative Legacy midsized cabin solution to the market starting this month.”
Flexjet’s fractional program already features the Embraer Phenom 300 light jet.
Since certification by Brazil’s ANAC (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) in August 2014, the Legacy 500 has been certified by another five aviation authorities in the U.S., Mexico, the European Union, the Middle East, and Australia.
Dallas, Texas-based Flexjet LLC first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995. Flexjet now offers fractional jet ownership and leasing. Flexjet’s fractional aircraft program is the first in the world to be recognized as achieving the Air Charter Safety Foundation’s Industry Audit Standard, and Flexjet is the first and only company to be honored with its 14th FAA Diamond Award for Excellence. Flexjet’s fractional program fields an exclusive array of business aircraft—some of the youngest in the fractional jet industry with an average age of approximately six years. Flexjet is a member of the Directional Aviation family of companies. For more details on innovative programs and flexible offerings, visit www.flexjet.com.
