Flight Options Puts First Legacy Into Operation

Four Embraer Legacy Executive twinjets have joined Cleveland-based fractional operator Flight Options to provide owners with a large-cabin aircraft to supplement the company’s Challenger 601 and Gulfstream IV fleets, as well as allowing Hawker 800XP owners to upgrade. The Legacy Executive is an eight- to 13-passenger business jet version of the Brazilian manufacturer’s ERJ-135 regional jet. These four aircraft are believed to be among 20 to 25 new airplanes (primarily Hawker 800XPs and Hawker 400XPs) that Flight Options said in late October it planned to add over the next few months to its current fleet of more than 220 aircraft.
