Embraer completes first renovation of Legacy 600 aircraft

The Embraer Executive Jets service centre in Sorocaba, Brazil, has performed the first complete renovation of a Legacy 600 business jet.

The used aircraft was purchased by a South American customer who has chosen to have the whole aircraft customised, including a new interior, systems upgrades and a new paint scheme.

Everton Vicente de Lima, general manager of the Brazil service centre, said: “Since 2002 in the business aviation market, Embraer has developed aircraft recognized for their robustness, advanced technology, reliability and high utilization capability.”

The interior shop implementation project began in 2018, expanding the portfolio of services offered to Embraer Executive Jets’ customers. The service team also performed an overhaul of the landing gear and the installation of ADS-B Out (Automatic navigation and aircraft tracking data transmission technology), along with a GPS upgrade.

This Legacy 600, which was built in 2006, has new seats, carpets, ceiling material, side panels and a new varnish hue for the furniture. The galley received new flooring and new fabrics.

Based at the Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport in Sorocaba, Embraer’s facility provides airport services (FBO) for any manufacturer’s aircraft and support for the Embraer Executive Jets fleet. The service centre is part of the TechCare platform, which offers integrated service and support solutions.
