Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer's newest super-midsize jet, the Praetor 600, has earned both FAA and EASA certification, the company (Booth Z33) announced on Monday at EBACE 2019. This comes on the heels of type approval from Brazil civil aviation authority ANAC on April 18. The Praetor 600 was announced and debuted at NBAA-BACE in Orlando, Florida, in October, and it features increased range of 3,900 nm.
"We’ve met or exceeded every single design goal in the certified aircraft," said Embraer Executive Jets president and CEO Michael Amalfitano, who also announced the sale of a Praetor 600 to a Mexico-domiciled customer. He also reported that, with certification of the Praetor 600 complete, the company is turning to the Praetor 500 and expects that to be certified by key agencies later this summer. Both aircraft are on static display (SD100) this week at EBACE 2019.
