UK business aircraft charter and management company London Executive Aviation has taken delivery of an Embraer Legacy 600 - the 1,100th aircraft to be produced on Embraer's ERJ-145 platform.

The super-midsize business jet joins three other Legacy types in the LEA charter fleet and brings to six the number of the types LEA operates.

LEA sourced the new aircraft directly from Embraer on behalf of a long-established client, an experienced Legacy 600 owner. The Legacy was delivered to LEA's team in São Paulo. The team performed a full acceptance inspection before the transatlantic delivery flight to London Stansted via Recife and Gran Canaria. The Recife-Gran Canaria sector was covered in five-and-a-half hours.

This is the fourth occasion on which LEA has managed a factory delivery with Embraer in Brazil.
