SP's Aviation - - SHOW REPORT -

The Prae­tor 500 and Prae­tor 600 are the dis­rup­tive air­craft for the en­tre­pre­neur, for the pi­o­neer, for the in­no­va­tor,” said Michael Amal­fi­tano, Pres­i­dent & CEO, Em­braer Ex­ec­u­tive Jets. “The in­tro­duc­tion of these air­craft sup­port our vi­sion of fas­ci­nat­ing our cus­tomers and pro­vid­ing them with su­pe­rior value and the best ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try.”

The Prae­tor jets will in­tro­duce un­prece­dented range into their cat­e­gories. The Prae­tor 600 will be the far­thest-fly­ing su­per-mid­size busi­ness jet, which al­lows non­stop flights be­tween Lon­don and New York. The Prae­tor 500 will be the fastest mid­size air­craft, ca­pa­ble of reach­ing Eu­rope from the west coast of the U.S. with a sin­gle stop. With four pas­sen­gers and NBAA IFR Re­serves, the Prae­tor 600 will have an in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal range of 3,900 nau­ti­cal miles (7,223 km) and the Prae­tor 500 will lead the mid­size class with a con­ti­nen­tal range of 3,250 nau­ti­cal miles (6,019 km).

Ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy also abounds through­out the cabin be­gin­ning with the in­dus­try-ex­clu­sive Upper Tech Panel that dis­plays flight in­for­ma­tion and of­fers cabin man­age­ment fea­tures also avail­able on per­sonal de­vices through Honey­well Ova­tion Se­lect. High-ca­pac­ity high-speed con­nec­tiv­ity for all aboard is avail­able through Vi­asat’s Ka-band with speeds of up to 16Mbps and IPTV, an­other in­dus­try-ex­clu­sive in mid­size and su­per-mid­size busi­ness jets.

Be­ing the only mid­size and su­per-mid­size busi­ness jets with full fly-by-wire tech­nol­ogy and ac­tive tur­bu­lence re­duc­tion, pas­sen­gers will en­joy the smoothest pos­si­ble flight, com­ple­mented by a best-in-class 5,800-foot cabin al­ti­tude for ul­ti­mate pas­sen­ger com­fort. To cel­e­brate these new air­craft, Em­braer is also in­tro­duc­ing the new pre­mium style Bossa Nova in­te­rior edi­tion.

The Prae­tor jets are cur­rently un­der devel­op­ment with two Prae­tor 600 pro­to­types in flight tests as well as one pro­duc­tion­con­form­ing air­craft, and one pro­duc­tion-con­form­ing Prae­tor 500 in its ma­tu­rity cam­paign. The Prae­tor 600 is ex­pected to be cer­ti­fied and en­ter ser­vice in the sec­ond quar­ter of 2019, fol­lowed by the Prae­tor 500 in the third quar­ter of 2019.
