 - March 28, 2007, 12:25 PM

To inaugurate its newest aircraft type, fractional provider Flight Options is offering a reduced hourly occupied rate for customers who sign up for shares in the Embraer Legacy. For the first 24 months of the 60-month contract, the share owner will pay an hourly rate of $1,990, comparable to that of a Hawker 800XP. At the 25th month, the rate reverts to the regular $2,485 per hour. The Legacy seats 13 passengers in its VIP configuration (compared with eight for the Hawker) and has a maximum range of 3,250 nm. The size of its cabin is the Legacy’s strong suit, with 1,410 cu ft of space separated into three seating areas. The Brazilian business jet also offers walk-in access to its 240-cu-ft baggage compartment, the largest baggage volume in the Flight Options fleet.
