Embraer has completed a revision of the Legacy 600’s maintenance planning guide that it said will yield cost savings of up to 18 percent. Extended intervals between some maintenance tasks are the primary contributor to the savings. Since the guide’s first edition was issued in 2001, the man-hour to flight-hour ratio has dropped by 50 percent to the current rate of 0.65, Embraer said.
