London Executive Aviation continues its fleet development with the arrival of its first Falcon 2000LX, and its ninth Embraer jet – a Legacy 650 to be based in Tallinn, Estonia.
The Falcon will be based at Luton airport and takes the total number of aircraft on LEA's air operator's certificate to 28. It is configured to carry up to 10 passengers and is fully available for charter. With a range of 4,000 nautical miles, it allows for non-stop connectivity from London to destinations such as New York and Dubai.
The cabin includes a state-of-the-art entertainment system featuring two DVD players with stored media and a 3D airshow feature, four personal widescreen units, a forward cabin monitor and a connection port for iPhones, iPads and iPods. Using the remote Apple app, passengers can use their Apple products to control the entertainment system as well as the cabin lighting.
Chief executive Patrick Margetson-Rushmore says: “This is the fourth business jet we have taken delivery of so far this year and our first Falcon 2000LX builds on the variety of aircraft types in the LEA fleet, ensuring we have an aircraft to suit every private aviation need.”
The ninth Legacy on the company's AOC is configured to carry 13 passengers and has a maximum range of 3,900 nautical miles. LEA says it has become one of the most experienced operators of this aircraft type in the industry, since taking on its first Legacy in early 2006.
“By basing the new Legacy 650 in Tallinn, it is well placed to cater for the increasing demand for private air travel in the Baltic region and complements the operation of our others of the type, including G-SYNA, which has been based in London since last summer,” says md George Galanopoulos.
