Arab Wings manages first Legacy 650 for Middle Eastern client
Jordan-headquartered Arab Wings has announced that it is managing the first Legacy 650 to be delivered to a client in the Middle East.

Jordan-headquartered Arab Wings has announced that it is managing the first Legacy 650 to be delivered to a client in the Middle East.

Ahmad Abu Ghazaleh, ceo says: "The aircraft's Jordanian owner appreciates the comfort of the cabin with its three distinct zones, providing space to work and relax. The aircraft's huge baggage compartment is ideal for long-distance flying."

Arab Wings already operates a Legacy 600 and says the Legacy 650 will enable it to fly clients up to 3,900 nm non-stop with four passengers, or 3,840 nm with eight passengers.

Abu Ghazaleh adds: "This significant increase in range was accomplished through extensive airframe modifications, such as reinforced wings and landing gear, larger fuel capacity and new highly efficient and more powerful Rolls-Royce AE 3007A2 engines."

But he points out that Honeywell's new Primus Elite avionics suite equips both the Legacy 650 and future Legacy 600s. "Due to their excellent performance under hot and high conditions, where they operate easily up to temperatures of 50*C, both aircraft have been very successful in the Middle East market."

Abu Ghazaleh says the Legacy 650 is a natural complement to the Legacy 600 as well as enabling Arab Wings to offer longer non- stop flights.

"It offers more distance but still enjoys the same comfortable and functional interior as the Legacy 600, with a spacious wet galley as well as the large in-flight accessible baggage compartment."

Founded in 1975 in Jordan, Arab Wings is owned by the International Wings Group, the Jordan-based group that also owns the Royal Jordanian Air Academy, Queen Noor Civil Aviation Technical College and Gulf Wings in the United Arab Emirates.
