  1. Embraer Praetor 500 Gets FAA; EASA Nod
    After receiving Type Certification from its local certification body, the ANAC—Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil a few months ago, Praetor 500 is now ready to deliver to an international market. This is thanks to Type Certifications from the United States-based Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The Praetor 500 joins the crowded field of midsize business jet offerings from different manufacturers.
  2. 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 reaffirm 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. Competition is good within a segment but what is Embraer going to do with the Legacy 450 and 500s since the Praetor 500 and 600 are improved versions of them.
