17 Aug 2005
On August 16th, Embraer announced the delivery of three specially configured Legacy Executive Jets to the Indian government. India ordered five aircraft with options for two more. Two of the Legacys delivered will serve the Indian Air Force and one will serve India’s Border Security Force. Embraer is expected to have delivered the remaining two aircraft by October this year.
The Legacy jet is Embraer's corporate variant in the ERJ-145 family derived from the widely used ERJ-135 aircraft. The Legacy Jet can carry up to 16 passenger in business-class comfort, and the Indian examples are specially equipped for authority transportation.
