Embraer Commences Legacy 450/500 Production
Posted: 2016 Jun 04

Embraer Executive Jets has commenced production of its Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 business jets at its recently expanded facility, in Melbourne, Florida, USA.
 
The Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 are already in production at the same facility.
 
Over 170 Phenom jets, valued at over USD 1 billion, have been produced in Melbourne mainly for U.S. customers but also for customers in 14 other countries.
 
The new 236,000 square-foot facility features four new buildings: an assembly hangar, a paint facility, a completion center, a flight preparation facility, and a new delivery center.
 
Embraer will add 600 new jobs to its almost 600 employees in the area, ramping up hiring through 2020. 
 
Operations at the Melbourne production facility began in February 2011 and the first Phenom 100 was delivered in December of the same year.
 
The Phenom 300 was added to the multi-model, paperless final assembly line, in August 2012,
