Embraer’s Praetor 500 Business Jet Receives EASA and FAA Type Certification

Embraer’s new Praetor 500 midsize business jet has received Type Certification from EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) and the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).

The Praetor 500 received regulatory approval from Brazil’s Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC—Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) in August.

The Praetor 500 surpassed its certification goals achieving an intercontinental range of 3,340 nautical miles (6,186 km—NBAA IFR Reserves with four passengers), a high-speed cruise of 466 KTAS, a full-fuel payload of 1,600 lb (726 kg), a takeoff distance of only 4,222 ft (1,287 m) and an unfactored landing distance of 2,086 ft (636 m). For a 1,000-nautical-mile mission, the take-off distance is a mere 2,842 ft (867 m).

“The triple-certification by ANAC, EASA and FAA reaffirms the most disruptive and technologically advanced design of the Praetor 500 as the best midsize jet ever made,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Praetor 500 owners will now enjoy the ultimate customer experience in the midsize class, with the highest level of performance, technology and comfort.”

The Praetor 500 is able to fly non-stop from Miami to Seattle, or Los Angeles to New York as well from New York to London, London to Dubai, and Jakarta to Tokyo.

The Praetor 500 also connects the west coast of North America to Europe and to South America, from Los Angeles to London or to São Paulo, with single-stop performance.

In addition to connecting the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre to New York or São Paulo to Paris, with only one stop, the Praetor 500’s performance allows access to special operation airports, such as Angra dos Reis and Jacarepaguá, in Brazil.

The Praetor 500 has the capacity to seat up to nine passengers with the optional two-place divan. Of the six fully reclining seats, four can be berthed into two beds.
