- What kind of jet Jackie Chan owns
- Why Chan upgraded from the Legacy 650 to the newer Legacy 500
The action movie Superstar Jackie Chan flies in style in his very own private jet. Chan has become a brand ambassador for Embraer, and owns an Embraer Legacy 650, purchased in 2012. The Legacy 650 boasts a longer range than Chan’s newer Legacy 500, though the Legacy 500 is known for its impressive style and comfortable cabin. Chan upgraded aircrafts for more range and convenience saying “In the past few years, my Legacy 650 has brought me fantastic traveling experiences and great convenience, allowing me to do more acting and philanthropic works around the world. 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.”
As the best plane in its class, the Legacy 500 is the first business jet of this type, which has a secondary flight control. The cockpit is equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion equipment, and the cabin has enough space for 12 passengers. Otherwise, the passenger cabin is equipped with a surround-sound system, entertainment system and seats which can be converted into a full-length bed. The aircraft is also powered by two Honeywell HTF7500E engines, which are described as “greenest” in its class.
