EMBRAER'S NEW $21 MILLION MASTERPIECE (swipe left if you're a fan of Top Gun).
Like a scene-stealing costar, Embraer has captured the spotlight ahead of the National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, the industry’s biggest U.S. event of the year, being held in Orlando, Florida from October 16 - 18.
Embraer introduced two new private jets Sunday. Dubbed the Praetor 500 and the Praetor 600, they represent the Brazilian planemaker's newest entrants in the midsize and super midsize private-jet market.
The Praetor 500 and 600 are not completely new, clean-sheet designs but rather based on the Embraer’s Legacy 450 (which recently set a speed record) and 500 jets, respectively. However, the big advantage of both new models are increased ranges, with the Praetor 500 able to travel up to 3,740 miles without stopping, compared to the 3,341 of its predecessor, and the Praetor 600 able to reach up to 4,488 miles, a big jump from the 3,596 miles of its predecessor.
This increase gives the Praetor 600 intercontinental range, while the Praetor 500 gets the claim to fame of being the fastest midsize aircraft capable of reaching Europe from the West Coast in a single shot. The new jets will be equipped with fuel-efficient Honeywell HTF7500E turbofan engines, which will save a pretty penny on petrol—a good compromise before all-electric planes eventually conquer the skies.
Both planes feature the modern amenities jet buyers are coming to expect, like Honeywell Ovation cabin management devices and GoGo / Ka-band for high-speed Internet access, giving passengers access to the entire Internet’s worth of entertainment content — though there will still be an optional in-flight entertainment system with screens, surround sound, and various input options.
Available for charter from superFLY in 2020.
