Embraer’s plans for the new Legacy 650 signal that the Brazilian airframer is not cowering during the recession but continuing to look ahead at promising market niches that it can fill. The Legacy 650 is based on the ERJ-135 regional jet platform
but has new wings, Honeywell Primus Elite avionics and new 9,020-pound-thrust Rolls-Royce AE3007A2 engines.
