Embraer Praetor 500 Receives Type Certification from ANAC

Embraer’s new Praetor 500 midsize business jet has been granted Type Certification by ANAC, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Authority.

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 takeoff distance is a mere 2,842 ft (867 m).

“The certification of the Praetor 500 is a welcome achievement for the celebration of our golden jubilee. This revolutionary aircraft is a testament to the commitment of our teams to excellence and a foretaste of the pioneering that Embraer will accomplish throughout the next 50 years,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “With the highest performance, technology and comfort in its class, the Praetor 500 becomes the best midsize business jet ever made, raising the customer experience standards of its class. We are thrilled to announce that we already have orders for the Praetor 500, including in Brazil.”

In addition to  connecting the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre to New York or Săo Paulo to Paris, with a single stop, the Praetor 500 can access challenging airports, such as Angra dos Reis and Jacarepaguá, in Brazil.

The Praetor 500 features a six-foot-tall, flat-floor cabin, stone flooring, Ka-band internet connectivity, and a vacuum service lavatory. The aircraft also features Turbulence Reduction technology and a 5,800-foot cabin altitude. In addition to the full-service galley and a wardrobe, six fully reclining club seats, four of which may be berthed into two beds, and the baggage space is one of the largest in the class.
