Launched as a concept called the MLJ (Mid-Light Jet) at the NBAA Convention in 2007, the Legacy 450 (and its big brother the Legacy 500) were officially launched at EBACE in May 2008. It is designed to carry 7 to 8 passengers over 2,575 nautical miles (4,769 km),[3] and a flight life of 27,500 flight hours. The aircraft has full fly-by-wire flight controls, a Collins ProLine Fusion flight deck, Honeywell HF7500 series engines, and a full stand up flat floor cabin and a lavatory. Cabin altitude is 6,000 feet.[4]
