Munich, Germany-based aircraft management and charter provider MHS Aviation has taken delivery of Europe’s first Embraer Praetor 600. It joins the company’s fleet of 18 private aircraft that includes Bombardier Globals, Challengers, and a Learjet 45; a Dassault Falcon 2000LX; a Cessna Citation CJ2+; a Dornier 328; and a Leonardo AW109 helicopter.
The Praetor 600, which offers some of the lowest fuel burn rates in its class, has a nonstop range of more than 4,000 miles, connecting New York and London or London and Dubai, and can operate from runways as short as 3,000 feet.
“[The aircraft] can perform a wide range of missions for our customers,” said MHS CEO Steffen Fries, adding that the company’s familiarity with the delivery process, along with its tailored offerings and boutique service, weighed heavily in the Praetor owner's decision for MHS to operate the super-midsize twinjet. “We are extremely proud to become the first German airline to operate this new aircraft.”
