Jackie Chan’s connection with Embraer Executive Jets dates to 2012, when he received an Embraer Legacy 650 as China’s launch customer and became Embraer’s brand ambassador.
“I’m so thrilled to receive this Legacy 500, a state-of-art executive jet,” said Jackie Chan. “In the past few years, my Legacy 650 has brought me fantastic traveling experiences and great convenience, allowing me to do more acting and philanthropic works around the world. I’m sure that the performance of the new Legacy 500 will again exceed my expectations, and become a comfortable mobile home and office for me.”
