Embraer introduced to the market its new executive jets of the medium and super middle categories. During an executive aviation conference held this weekend in Orlando, United States, the Brazilian manufacturer revealed details of Praetor 500 and Praetor 600, aircraft with advanced technology capable of conducting intercontinental routes. The Praetor 500 and 600 were designed for the "entrepreneur, the pioneer and the innovator," describes the president and CEO of Embraer Executive Aviation, Michael Amalfitano. The jets, he said, "are aircraft that certainly live up to their names, leading the way in redefining the characteristics of what a medium-sized and super-medium aircraft offer to the market." "The introduction of these aircraft underpins our vision of mesmerizing our customers and providing them with superior value and the best industry experience." The range of the jets impresses in relation to rivals of the segment. The Praetor 500, categorized as an average jet, has the autonomy to fly for 3,250 nautical miles (or six thousand kilometers). The super-average Praetor 600 goes even further, connecting distant cities up to 3,900 nautical miles (7,200,000 kilometers). With this the Praetor 600 will be able to realize non-stop flights between London and New York, for example. The comparison between the Praetor 600 and direct competitors in the segment shows the difference, such as Cessna Citation X (3,125 nautical miles), Bombardier Challenger 300 (3,276 nautical miles) or Gulfstream G200 (3,312 nautical miles). Luciano Froes, the senior vice president of Marketing for Embraer Executive Aviation, describes the new jets as "the most disruptive and technologically advanced aircraft entering the medium and super-medium categories." "Designed to be different and purposefully disruptive, these new aircraft will provide the ultimate customer experience with an unmatched combination of performance, comfort and technology," he promises. With prototypes in flight test, the certification of Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 has not yet been approved by the responsible authorities. Embraer expects that, certified, aircraft will start operations in 2019, with Praetor 600 starting in the second quarter and Praetor 500 in the third quarter.
