Embraer Executive Jets has delivered the fourth Legacy 450 mid-light business jet to AirSprint, Inc., a Canadian privately held fractional aircraft ownership company based in Calgary, Alta. Since joining the fleet in December 2016, AirSprint’s Legacy 450 aircraft have logged over 1,800 flight hours across Canada and the United States.
“We are very pleased that AirSprint’s fleet renewal strategy with the Legacy 450 is delivering true value through a premium customer experience,” said Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “We are honoured to support AirSprint’s operations and to continue to grow its fleet with the revolutionary Legacy 450.”
The purchase agreement for up to 12 Legacy 450 was signed in July 2016. This agreement has an estimated value of US$198 million at the current list price, if all options are exercised.
“The Legacy 450 has been a tremendous addition to our fractional fleet, and has quickly become our busiest aircraft,” said James Elian, president and COO of AirSprint Inc. “Our fractional owners have had nothing but praise for the flight experience and we look forward to adding more Legacy 450 aircraft to our fleet in the near future.”
In December 2016, Embraer and AirSprint flew the Legacy 450 on its maiden voyage to Hawaii, from California, recording its longest flight to date and establishing two speed records, one on each flight. The National Aeronautic Association (NAA) and the Federation Aeronautique Internationale have confirmed each of these flights as a U.S. record and a world record, respectively.
