A wide range of avionics options can enable your aircraft to take advantage of preferred airspace and airport access, greater safety and more – while keeping your Embraer Legacy 450/500 mandate compliant.

Head-up Vision System

Head-up Vision System - Two capabilities combine to deliver unparalleled flight awareness

Head-up Guidance System (HGS™)

HGS scope view

Mitigate unstable approaches by having critical flight information in pilots’ forward field of view. Gain greater flight path awareness and safety while also accessing the lower landing minima available only with head-up displays. Equip to take advantage of NextGen airspace and anticipated Enhanced Flight Vision System rule changes. All in a new, compact design that delivers spacious headroom on the flight deck.

  • Enables use of SA CAT I approval and Enhanced Flight Vision System CAT I lower landing minima.
  • Displays aircraft’s current position, speed and altitude, plus projected flight path. Assists in maintaining stabilized approaches.

Enhanced Vision System(EVS)

Aircraft vision system side-by-side approach view

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out

ADS-B instrument view

Maintain your aircraft's value while complying with upcoming ADS-B Out mandates with an option that delivers real-time traffic and aeronautical information to your flight deck. This airspace modernization mandate goes into effect in the U.S. at 11:59 p.m., December 31, 2019.

  • Reduces separation and increases predictability in departure/arrival times
  • Improves traffic awareness, safety and efficiency in congested airspace

Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC)

Text-based communication between pilots and air traffic controllers.


Pro Line Fusion and HGS for Gulfstream G280 - FANS-Nav

Flying the North Atlantic tracks? The 2020 mandate is fast approaching. Maintain your access to preferred routes with FANS 1/A, whether it's using the preferred tracks heading to Europe or expediting your departure at the 56 Data Comm (DCL) enabled airports in the United States.

ATN (Link 2000+)

Embraer Link 2000 country view

Based in Europe or traveling to your favorite European destination soon? Equip to maintain access to all your favorite European destinations with confidence. The Aeronautical Telecommunication Network (ATN) data-link channel enables a more reliable and easier means of communication between pilots and busy air traffic controllers.

Surface Management System

Web signage for AMM

Paperless Operation

Pro Line 21 Paperless cockpit

Don’t let a low battery light on your mobile device be the reason you can’t reach dispatch. Simplify flight deck operations and reduce distractions with an integrated solution for approach plates, en route charts, documents or manuals, requiring no separate mobile device to carry on board.

Graphical Weather

Pro Line 21 for Embraer Legacy 450/500

Expand your weather knowledge out to 1,000 nautical miles. Two solutions overlay the navigational map for seamless decision making.

  • XM™ graphical weather
  • High-resolution strategic weather with updated awareness of changing weather patterns in the continental United States.
  • Data-link graphical weather
  • Worldwide forecast and observations for a strategic weather view.

RNP AR 0.3

L450-500 RNP flight view

Unlock access to 400+ additional approach landing minima. Equip your aircraft with Performance Based Navigation (PBN) for easier access to heavily congested or terrain-challenged airports. You'll take advantage of shorter approach routing and lower landing minima to maximize fuel savings.

Lightning Detection

Embraer flight thermal view

Know where storms are developing in real time. Color-coded symbols display lightning activity around your aircraft, assisting pilots in determining the best routing to avoid convective weather.

Aircraft Information Manager

Is keeping your Legacy databases updated becoming time-consuming? Those updates will become a whole lot easier when you stage your database content. That means once you reach weight-on-wheels and have Wi-Fi® connection, your databases automatically update. How easy is that?

Iridium® SATCOM

Two satellites orbiting earth

Take reliable voice communications for your flight deck and passengers wherever you go. Data link for AOC as well as safety services is also enabled by using the most advanced, satellite-based network available.

Synthetic Vision System (SVS)

Pro Line 21 for Embraer Legacy 450/500 SVS

Equipped with SVS, you gain better situational awareness in low visibility conditions and unfamiliar territory. The system integrates the terrain database with real-time flight information, allowing flight crews to operate like it's always a VFR day.

One Complete View

Embraer flight full view

Easily create and modify flight plans graphically through the use of interactive map symbols displayed directly on the large moving map. Built-in top-down and side profiles of terrain are another safety enhancement to reduce the risk of controlled flight into terrain, or CFIT, by providing one complete view.

Electronic Chart View

Pro Line 21 Embraer Legacy 450/500 charts

Real-time access to a virtually endless array of information integrated in easy-to-understand formats. Previously, this information was only accessible from multiple sources. Approach plates, en-route charts, graphical weather and manuals are consolidated in one location, with one consistent look and feel.

Smart Checklists/synoptics

Embraer Syn Smart diagram

Streamline the monitoring of your aircraft system data. Electronic smart checklists allow you to easily step through normal and emergency procedures. Added EICAS sensing links checklists and synoptic together, enabling your crew to quickly assess the current aircraft state.

MultiScan Weather Radar

Pro Line 21 Embraer Legacy 450/500 MultiScan

You can't control bad weather, but you can avoid it with full-color storm cell tracking that is automatic and clutter-free, scanning 320 nautical miles ahead of your aircraft. OverFlight™ protection mitigates the risk of inadvertently penetrating thunderstorm tops./p>
