The Elite Air-managed Legacy 600 based at St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport underwent a complete interior and exterior refurbishment in August.
The aircraft, manufactured in 2007 and fitted with wireless internet last year, was placed back into service on Aug. 28.
“The Legacy is a beautiful aircraft and extremely popular with our charter customers,” Elite Air Sales Director AJ Becker said. “We couldn’t be happier to unveil its new look.”
The Legacy 600 holds up to 13 passengers, can travel as many as 6.5 hours nonstop and features an enclosed lavatory and full galley. The aircraft, widely considered one of the best value heavy jets in the industry, has a spacious interior and best-in-class luggage space.
The Elite Air-managed Legacy 600 was one of the earliest additions to the company’s charter fleet and has carried passengers all over the country and around the globe.
“This aircraft is truly one of the most reliable options in our charter fleet,” Becker said. “Not only is the owner charter-friendly, but the crew is one of our best.”
Primarily crewed by Captain Tom Rissmiller, SIC Josh Moore and cabin attendant Debbie Dreyer, the Legacy can also be flown by pilots Blake Spencer and Mark Hughes.
