Embraer Legacy 450/500 Thrust Reversers
Safran Nacelles PERT® type thrust reversers equip the Embraer Legacy 450 and 500 powered by two Honeywell engines from the HTF7000 family.
These two-door thrust reversers equipped with a fixed nozzle, have external composite/aluminum skins and panels and benefit from a simplified actuation and locking system which reduces the weight of the propulsion system and improves its efficiency.
The Legacy 450 came into service in 2014. The entry into service of the Legacy 500 is planned for 2015.
