King Charles III makes his first flight aboard an Embraer Legacy

G-LEGC registration aircraft was used by the monarch on his way back from Scotland to London after taking the throne on the death of Queen Elizabeth II

An Embraer Legacy 600 jet was the aircraft used by King Charles III of the United Kingdom for the return flight from Scotland to London on Friday. The new monarch assumed the throne following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at the age of 96.

Images of the King boarding the G-LEGC-registered business jet were seen this morning at Aberdeen Airport, the location used by the royal family to arrive at Balmoral Castle, the Queen’s summer residence.

The flight took off at 11:24 am local time for the Royal Air Force air base at Northolt, west London. The airfield is used by British authorities on their domestic and foreign travels.

This week, former prime minister Boris Johnson and new British prime minister Liz Truss departed Northolt for meetings with Queen Elizabeth II during the exchange of positions. But the two Conservative party politicians used the new Envoy IV (Falcon 900LX) jets, which replaced the four-engine BAe 146 aircraft.

The Legacy 600 used by Charles III is an older aircraft, with 15 years of use and belonging to Luxaviation United Kingdom. Delivered in 2007 to the International JetClub, the Brazilian plane also passed through Spanish Aerodynamics Malaga and London Executive Aviation before reaching the current owner.
