Several years ago while expanding his philanthropic empire around the world, Jackie Chan sought to make his travel a little faster and easier by purchasing an Embraer Legacy 650 jet. Then after becoming a brand ambassador for the Brazil-based aircraft manufacturer, Chan was gifted with the newest model, the Embraer Legacy 500. The base model of this plane retails for more than $20 million, making it a hefty investment. The aircraft is well worth the investment, with its top-of-the-line equipment and amenities for a comfortable journey. The plane has a range of 3,596 miles, meaning it can travel from Los Angeles to Honolulu, Hawaii non-stop.

This $20 million toy can shuttle Chan around the world in style and comfort while he continues his altruistic endeavors. The new design also incorporates technology to make the aircraft more fuel-efficient. After receiving the plane, Chan said, “I'm sure that the performance of the new Legacy 500 will again exceed my expectations, and become a comfortable mobile home and office for me.” Embraer noted that Chan will likely use his Legacy 650 for transoceanic flights while using the Legacy 500 for shorter, domestic trips.

As the only one in its class with a stand-up, six-foot, flat-floor cabin, the 500 has an impressive list of amenities for the comfort of its passengers. The cabin includes well-placed windows and ergonomically designed chairs for the utmost comfort. The eight chairs can swivel and flatten, allowing for the creation of beds for long-haul flights and ensuring travel at the pinnacle of comfort. No matter which direction you choose to face your chair, there’s an optimally located window for gazing out and watching Earth pass by below. The in-flight entertainment system has fully integrated audio and video abilities. For connectivity, there are USB and HDMI ports and Blu-ray players.

The elegant cabin and eight seats also make this the only mid-size jet able to carry eight passengers. The fuel efficiency allows the Embraer 500 to cross the United States, from coast to coast, landing with fuel in reserve. Another appealing aspect is the single point refueling system; this means that only one person is needed to refuel the airplane and gives the plane a quicker turnaround time. This quality is paramount to many clients as they may need to take the jet to distant locations and want to get there as quickly as possible.

Embraer was founded in 1969 by Ozires Silva, a former Major in the Brazilian Air Force. The company was run by Silva as CEO until 1986 and then again from 1991 to 1994. In 2000, the company was taken public in the New York and Sao Paulo Stock Exchanges. Embraer went through another change in 2000, entering the executive aviation market and introducing the first Legacy in the same year. The Legacy combined the performance of regional jet with the comfort of an executive suite hotel room. Embraer has been recognized with numerous awards for its innovations and design additions to the world of aviation. The company also places a big emphasis on customer service and supporting every need of its clients.
