Embraer Praetor 500

Embraer Praetor 500



Introduction:
The Embraer Praetor is the newest family of business jets from Embraer. It is compromised of the Preator 500 and 600, but this request is for the smaller version, the 500.


Summary:
These aircraft were recently released to the public in Orlando, Florida, about a week ago at the National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition. It was developed from Embraer’s own Legacy 350 business jet. The Praetor 500 has increased range, improved aerodynamics, and better avionics in the cockpit from its predecessor.

“This powerful aircraft is the fastest in its class, a smart, magnificent way to save time, reach more destinations in more comfort. A corner-to-corner, transcontinental aircraft, fly from Miami to Seattle, San Francisco to Gander, Singapore to Beijing or Dubai to Bangkok. Non-stop. This is the fastest midsize jet that will fly from the west coast of USA to Europe, with just one stop. Do the unthinkable with best-in-class range and cabin altitude. You will save time and feel fresh on arrival – ready to seize the day and pioneer others into the future.”

-Embraer
