Jet Aviation’s facilities at Biggin Hill in the UK and Dusseldorf, Germany, were named by Embraer as authorized service centers for the Legacy, the new corporate jet from the Brazilian manufacturer based on the ERJ-135 regional airliner. Embraer started deliveries of the Legacy in the second quarter of last year and the first deliveries to Europe were scheduled for last month. The Legacy is manufactured in two versions–executive (outfitted for up to 15 passengers) and corporate shuttle (with seating for up to 19 passengers). Last year the West Palm Beach, Fla. location became the first Jet Aviation facility to be named a Legacy service center.
