Embraer plans to expand its current facilities at Melbourne International Airport, Fla., with the addition of a new assembly line for the Legacy 500/450. If approved by the appropriate authorities, construction of the new facility will begin next year.

The Brazilian aircraft manufacturer has an assembly plant and paint facility for the Phenom 100 and 300 at the airport, as well as its customer center for executive aircraft.

The company is also constructing a new engineering and technology center, which will become part of Embraer’s Melbourne campus next year.
