Embraer set to debut Praetor 500 and 600 jets

Embraer will exhibit the new Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 business jets at business aviation show LABACE in Latin America.

The Praetor 500 is a midsize jet with a continental range of 3,250 nautical miles (6,019 km) for up to nine passengers, capable of single-stop flights from São Paulo to any city in South America or to destinations in Europe or North America.

The Praetor 600 is a super-midsize jet for up to 12 passengers, with an intercontinental range of 4,018 nautical miles (7,441 km), the farthest among its competitors, allowing for nonstop flights between São Paulo (Brazil) and Miami, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Fort Lauderdale, or Madrid (Spain) and Recife (Brazil).

Gustavo Teixeira, VP Sales, Latin America, Embraer Executive Jets, said: “With unprecedented performance, our new jets introduce unique flexibility to the market. The Praetor 600 has the class-exclusive advantage of the shortest field length with the longest range, flying nonstop from São Paulo to Miami. Both models deliver a customer experience yet unseen in their classes.

“With superior design and ergonomics, the Embraer DNA Design is complemented by the most comfortable flight and the best cabin altitude (5,800 ft) in its class as well as the smoothest possible flight, rendered by the class-exclusive turbulence reduction based on Embraer’s full fly-by-wire technology. High-speed Internet connectivity is among the features that serve customers with greater productivity and comfort.”
