This business jet was introduced at the October 2018 NBAA convention. Certification for the Praetor 600 was awarded by the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil in April 2019, and the aircraft received its EASA certification by May of the same year.
Praetor 500 and 600 are variants of the successful Legacy 450 & 500, exhibiting more range and improved performance. This aircraft is the competition to Bombardier’s Challenger 350 and Cessna’s Citation Longitude, offering excellent luggage capacity in comparison to similar jets in its category.
Thanks to more aerodynamically efficient winglets and additional fuel capacity, the Praetor 600 can fly further than the Legacy 500. It has a range of 3,900 nmi (7,223 km) which is 775 nmi more than the Legacy 500. The Praetor 600 can connect cities such as London and Dubai with no fuel stop. Its range is a dramatic improvement from its predecessors in the line, including Legacy 450 and 500.
Throughout the elegantly designed 6-foot-tall flat-floor cabin, Embraer has shown careful attention to detail and outstanding craftsmanship. The inside materials are of the greatest quality, as well as robust and light. Carbon fiber, for example, can be used throughout the cabin. The Praetor 600’s cabin offers exceptionally large windows, flat floors as well as a 1.83m ceiling. The ultra-quiet cabin and the in-cabin altitude of 1787m, best in its class, allow for a comfortable journey.
The Embraer Praetor 600 has been described as “the world’s most disruptive and technologically advanced super-midsize business jet”.This business jet is equipped for active reduction of turbulence and features fly-by-wire technology. This jet is the only one in the midsize class that offers Active Turbulent Reduction, as it is usually reserved for larger jets. The stone floors on the entrance and lavatory floors allow for a luxurious experience, while the galley is fully equipped with a coffee maker, refrigerator and an oven/microwave.
Depending on the cabin configuration, this aircraft can accommodate up to 12 passengers. The standard configuration accommodates 9 passengers very comfortably, the cabin then includes a club four, two seats and a sofa that can accommodate three people.
