At the forthcoming 63rd annual meeting of the US National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) in Atlanta, Georgia, Embraer will debut its all new Legacy 650, based on the Legacy 600. The aircraft, based on the Legacy 600 platform, was announced at NBAA in 2009. It will also show the ultra-large Lineage 1000 in another NBAA first. Bombardier confirmed last week it will announce a “new Global aircraft family” on the eve of the show – Sunday 17 October. Potential powerplants for the so-called “Super Global” are believed to include the Rolls-Royce BR725 and a GE Tech X-based engine. After the launch of ABJ Explorer BAE Systems and Design Q will be unveiling the next concept on Tuesday 19 October at a press briefing. Gulfstream meanwhile will be showcasing its all new ultra-large cabin Gulfstream 650 (Serial number 6004) available for private viewings by appointment to order holders and potential customers at a nearby hangar. It will also host a press briefing on the Sunday morning. DeKalb Peachtree Airport, close to the Georgia World Congress Centre exhibition venue, will display over 90 business jets and turboprops during the four day show (18-21 October). www.nbaa.aero
