Embraer Executive Jets announced today at the NBAA Convention that actor Jackie Chan is the launch customer of the Legacy 500 in China, with scheduled delivery for 2015. The fly-by-wire, midsize Legacy 500 is expected to be FAA certified in mid-2014. Chan became the first customer of the Embraer Legacy 650 in China and is also Embraer Executive Jets’ brand ambassador. “My Legacy 650 is perfect for long trips,” said Chan. “The Legacy 500 is futuristic and I’m anxious to fly in it.”
The Chinese Year of the Dragon is off to an auspicious beginning, at least for Jackie Chan, who took delivery of his Embraer Legacy 650 late last week. The aircraft, which is adorned with dragons and Chan’s personal logo emblazoned on the tail, is the first Legacy 650 to be delivered into China. Chan will also serve as the official brand ambassador to Embraer, promoting its entire line of aircraft in the China market and globally.
