[Avionics Today 08-31-2015] Embraer Executive Jets’ new Legacy 450 business jet has received type certification from the FAA. The approval comes a few weeks after the aircraft earned certification from Brazil's Civil Aeronautics Authority (ANAC).

"The Legacy 450 is the first mid-light jet with full fly-by-wire technology and side-stick flight controls, which makes it easier to fly. The digital controls produce a smoother flight, improve performance, and reduce pilot workload," said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.

The first Legacy 450 delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015.
