Embraer’s new Praetor 600 business jet has been
granted Type Certification by EASA (European Aviation Safety
Agency) and by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).
The Praetor 600 is capable of flying 4,000 nautical miles
in long-range cruise speed or 3,700 nautical miles at Mach .80
from runways shorter than 4,500ft.
ANAC, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Authority (Agência
Nacional de Aviação Civil), awarded the new aircraft its Type
Certificate in April.
“Now certified by the key aviation safety
agencies of the world, the Praetor 600 has proven to be the most
disruptive and technologically advanced super-midsize business jet
to enter the market, paving the way to begin deliveries now in the
second quarter,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer
Executive Jets. “Just over six months since its launch and debut,
the Praetor 600 has already been outperforming its certification
goals, raising expectations of the ideal super-midsize. Once
again, I want to thank and congratulate the entire Embraer family
for bringing to market such a revolutionary aircraft, designed to
create a new value experience for customers and shareholders
