Embraer unveiled a mock up of its Legacy 450 at EBACE 2008; up until that point the mid-light jet had been referred to as the MLJ.

It first flew on 28 December, 2013 and received its Brazilian certification on 11 August, 2015. It was certified by the FAA and EASA shortly afterwards and the first delivery was made on 22 December of that year.

The Legacy 450 is a low wing,T-tail aircraft with cabin pressurisation, powered by two rear mounted Honeywell JTF7500E turbofans, each giving 6,540 lbf of thrust. The landing gear is fully retractable and designed to be operated on paved runways only. It has short runway ability, a six and a-half hour flying time and achieves 22 minutes to cruise altitude.

The Legacy 450 also has a six ft flat floor cabin, fully reclining seats that are paired with a window, noise reducing technologies and can seat up to nine passengers.

Originally assembled exclusively in São José dos Campos, Brazil, production moved to the US in June 2016, and the first model rolled off a US assembly line on 14 December, 2016, one year after the type had entered service.
