The FAA is investigating a November 29 incident in which an Embraer Legacy operated by fractional provider Flight Options hit a parked company Legacy while trying to taxi around it at the company’s home base, Cleveland-Hopkins Airport. There were no injuries, but both business jets incurred “substantial damage” when the right wing of the taxiing Legacy hit the tailcone of the parked Legacy, according to the FAA. Flight Options said it would have no comment until the investigation is complete. The company operates five Legacys, with more to be added.
