Embraer's Legacy 500 has set two new world speed records for its class, totalling six in 2015. “These new speed records reaffirm the Legacy 500's superior performance and its suitability for transoceanic missions as well as coast-to-coast flights,” says president and CEO Marco Tulio Pellegrini. “The aircraft is also setting high standards in comfort, technology, operational cost and reliability in the midsize class.”

The records were set for 'speed over a recognised course' on a trip from the west coast of the United States to Hawaii, with five passengers on-board. The flight from Burbank to Kahului (Maui) covered 2,165 nm in six hours and the return trip covered 2,470 nm in five hours and 30 minutes.
