S�o José dos Campos, July 2, 2009 - Embraer delivered a Legacy 600 executive jet, this week, to
Titan Aviation, from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The aircraft was acquired by an undisclosed
customer, and will be managed and operated by Titan Aviation for exclusive private use of its
owner. The Dubai-based company has another Legacy 600 in its fleet, since June 2008, and is
scheduled to incorporate a Lineage 1000 jet in 2012.
"We are very proud to deliver this second Legacy 600 jet to Titan Aviation and to strengthen
our good relationship," said Colin Steven, Embraer Marketing and Sales, Europe, Africa and
Middle East - Executive Jets. "We believe that this brand-new Legacy 600, managed by
Titan, will provide the desired flexibility and convenience to its owner."
Configured to accommodate 13 passengers in
three distinct and comfortable cabin zones, this
super midsize Legacy 600 jet is equipped with
High-Speed Data (HSD), enabling customers to
browse the Internet, access e-mails, and transfer
files during trips, thus providing a better use of
time, increased work productivity, and more
entertainment possibilities. Titan pilots will have
the Legacy 600 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB)
available, which provides precise aircraft
performance calculations and electronic copies of
manuals and charts, allowing reduced pilot
workload and a paperless cockpit environment.
"We are pleased to take delivery of the second Legacy 600 from Embraer, on behalf of our
clients. Our customers have been active flyers on the same type of aircraft for many years
and, therefore, when the time came to acquire one, it was easy to decide on the model. The
Legacy 600 jet gives excellent passenger comfort and the ideal range for our client's travel
profile," said Capt. Sakeer C. Sheik, Managing Director of Titan Aviation.
"We are extremely happy with the reliability of the aircraft and the support the owners have
received from Embraer. The first Legacy 600 has gone as far as Mongolia, while performing
very well, and when we wanted maintenance support from Embraer, they were always
available to us. This type of service ensured that our dispatch reliability remained very high,
compared to some other manufacturers," he added.
Steep approach capability will allow Titan to operate in such airports as London City (LCY), in
the U.K.. The Legacy 600 is the largest business jet allowed to operate in Cannes Mandelieu
Airport (CEQ), in France. It has a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.80, and its range of 3,250
nautical miles (6,019 km) with eight passengers, or 3,400 nautical miles (6,297 km) with four
passengers, both with NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means that the jet can fly nonstop from London
to Dubai; from Frankfurt (Germany) to Karachi (Pakistan); from Hamburg (Germany) to Delhi
(India); from Delhi or Singapore to Tokyo (Japan); or from Shanghai (China) to Delhi. Today,
more than 170 Legacy 600 jets are flying in 25 countries, with high rates of dispatch reliability
and low operating costs.
