Embraer is awarded Brazilian certification for the Praetor 500
Embraer announces that the company’s new Praetor 500 midsize business jet was granted its Type Certificate by Brazil’s Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC—Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil), in October 2018 at NBAA-BACE having been announced. THE SORT Certificate was awarded throughout a ceremony at LABACE (Latin American Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition).
The Praetor 500 surpassed its certification goals achieving an intercontinental selection 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 just one 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 really a mere 2,842 ft (867 m).
The Praetor 500 outperforms its class, becoming the very best midsize jet ever developed and the only real jet in its class with Ka-band internet connectivity. With the very best cabin altitude, the Praetor 500 may be the only midsize jet with full fly-by-wire, which complements the superior cabin connection with the Embraer DNA home design with turbulence reduction for the smoothest & most efficient flight possible.
“The certification of the Praetor 500 is really a welcome achievement for the celebration of our golden jubilee. This revolutionary aircraft is really a testament to the commitment of our teams to excellence and a foretaste of the pioneering that Embraer will accomplish through the entire next 50 years,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “With the best performance, comfort and technology in its class, the Praetor 500 becomes the very best midsize business jet made ever, raising the client experience standards of its class. We have been thrilled to announce that people have orders for the Praetor 500 already, including in Brazil.”
The Praetor 500 may be the farthest- and fastest-flying midsize jet now, in a position to make true corner-to-corner nonstop flights in THE UNITED STATES, from Miami to Seattle, or LA to NY. The Praetor 500 also connects the west coast of THE UNITED STATES to Europe also to SOUTH USA, from LA to London or even to São Paulo, with single-stop performance. Besides connecting the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre to New Sã or York;o Paulo to Paris, with an individual stop, the Praetor 500 gets the superior performance to gain access to challenging airports, such as for example Angra dos Jacarepaguá and Reis;, in Brazil.

The Embraer DNA Design interior eloquently explores every dimension of the only real midsize to include a six-foot-tall, flat-floor cabin, stone flooring and vacuum pressure service lavatory, all in exactly the same certified aircraft. The class-exclusive Turbulence Reduction technology and 5,800-foot cabin altitude, complemented by way of a whisper silent cabin, have set the best standards in customer experience in the midsize category. As well as the full-service galley and a wardrobe, six reclining club seats fully, four which could be berthed into two beds, and the baggage space may be the largest in the class.
Advanced technology through the entire cabin is really a trait of the Embraer DNA Design also, you start with the industry-exclusive Upper Tech Panel that presents flight information and will be offering cabin management features also on personal devices through Honeywell Ovation Select. High-capacity, ultra high-speed connectivity for several aboard can be acquired through Viasat’s Ka-band, with speeds as high as 16Mbps and unlimited streaming, another industry-exclusive in midsize jets.
The Praetor 500 features the most recent edition of the acclaimed Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion flight deck. A number of the possibilities on the Praetor 500 flight deck will be the industry-first vertical weather display, air-traffic-control-like situational awareness with ADSB-IN, predictive wind shear radar capability, and also the Embraer Enhanced Vision System (E2VS) with a Head-up Display (HUD) and a sophisticated Video System (EVS), an Inertial Reference System (IRS) and a Synthetic Vision Guidance System (SVGS).
