Embraer’s new super-midsize business jet, Praetor 600, has been granted its Type Certification by Brazil’s Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC).
With this, the Praetor 600 becomes the only super-midsize business jet to be certified since 2014.
The aircraft surpassed its main design goals, becoming capable of flying beyond 4,000 nautical miles in long-range cruise speed or beyond 3,700 nautical miles at Mach. 80 from runways shorter than 4,500ft, complemented by its payload capability.
“Our engineering and programme teams have outperformed again by passionately designing, developing and certifying the class-leading Praetor 600 business jet, exceeding specifications and expectations, and ahead of schedule,” said Paulo César Souza e Silva, Embraer CEO. “This advanced aircraft reflects not only our journey of innovation, it is also a preview of the future of this great company.”
Embraer says the Praetor 600 is able to make nonstop flights between London and New York, São Paulo and Miami, Dubai and London. Embraer also say it is the first super-midsize jet with full fly-by-wire technology, which powers the Active Turbulence Reduction.
Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets commented: “The Praetor 600 will fascinate our customers with the highest performance, technology and comfort in its class and raise the customer experience to an unprecedented level.”
The Embraer DNA Design interior features a six-foot tall, flat-floor cabin, stone flooring and a vacuum service lavatory. The aircraft also boast class-exclusive Active Turbulence Reduction and a 5,800 foot cabin altitude. In addition to the full-service galley and a wardrobe, eight fully reclining club seats may be berthed into four beds and the baggage space is the largest in the class.
The aircraft also features an 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, ultra high-speed connectivity for all aboard is available through Viasat’s Ka-band, with speeds of up to 16Mbps and unlimited streaming.
The Praetor 600 features Collins Aerospace’s newest edition of the Pro Line Fusion flight deck.
