Embraer has completed a new revision of the Legacy 600 business jet’s maintenance planning guide. The Brazilian-based manufacturer expects this change to yield cost cuts of up to 18 percent. This is mainly due to extended intervals between some maintenance tasks. 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 here.
