Shahrukh, are you watching? Jackie Chan buys business jet!

Jackie Chan buys business jetBollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan recently said that he could not afford to buy plane and make films at the same time. While this became the topic of the B-town, far away in China, stuntman Jackie Chan has become the first customer in his country to take delivery of the Embraer Legacy 500 business jet, which has a price tag of $20 million.

“The Legacy 500 features our best-to-date technologies and it incorporates designs that maximise passenger comfort and fuel efficiency,” said Marco Tulio Pellegrini, president and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets.

A best-in-class carrier, the Legacy 500 is the first executive jet of its size to feature side-stick flight controls. At the vanguard of visual displays, the cockpit is equipped with a Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite.

The 12-passenger jet’s six foot-tall, flat-floor cabin includes a cabin management system, surround sound, high-definition entertainment system and eight club seats that transition to four beds for long hauls. Taking off from airfields as short as 4,084 feet, the Legacy 500 has a range of 3,125 nautical miles (5,788 kilometers) with four passengers.

The Legacy 500 jet is capable of f lying at 45,000 feet and is powered by two Honeywell HTF7500E engines, the greenest in their class. It is configured with four axial compressor stages, a single centrifugal compressor, a two-stage high-pressure turbine and a three-stage low-pressure turbine driving a high-efficiency fan.

“I’m so thrilled to receive this Legacy 500, a state-of-art executive jet,” Chan said in a statement.
