Embraer’s Praetor 600 Flies at Paris Air Show 2019
Israel Aerospace Industries subsidiary Elta Systems and Embraer signed a strategic cooperation agreement to jointly develop an airborne early warning (AEW) variant of the Praetor 600 business jet at the Paris Air Show. The P600 AEW is targeting a new segment of the airborne early warning market, namely one for air forces with lower defense budgets that want to be able to operate this type of capability, but is typically only operated by a limited number of nations.
