Embraer’s Praetor 600 is the Brazilian company’s flagship business jet, itself an evolution of the Legacy 500. The name Praetor is derived from the Latin for a Roman magistrate, and Embraer Executive Jets v-p of design operations Jay Beever explains how the name relates to what the aircraft does for its owner.
The $21 million dollar super-midsize jet offers performance and range improvements over its predecessor, thanks to added fuel capacity, new winglets, and more powerful engines. With a range of 4,018 nautical miles, passengers will appreciate the new interior design, which the company calls “Bossa Nova” and takes inspiration from the boardwalk at Rio de Janeiro’s famed Ipanema Beach.
