The first Praetor 600 has been delivered, to a European customer. The aircraft was completed in São José dos Campos, Brazil, in a facility that also produces the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500. The Praetor 600 will also be produced in Melbourne, Florida.
“We are thrilled to deliver the first Praetor 600 and we are confident that our customer will be fascinated with the most disruptive and technologically advanced super-mid-size business jet to enter the market,” said Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Praetor 600 is certain to create a new value experience for our customers and help them outperform in their business and personal endeavours.”
Announced at NBAA-BACE in October 2018, where it also made its debut, the Praetor 600 was certified in April 2019, six months after its announcement.
“The Praetor 600 unleashes the full potential of its platform through industry-leading design, engineering and technology that was yet unseen in the medium-cabin class,” said Daniel Moczydlower, executive vice president, Embraer Engineering and Technology. “With Embraer’s fourth-generation fly-by-wire technology and more than 25 patented innovations in the interior design and architecture, the Praetor 600 will ensure an industry-exclusive customer experience and raise their expectations of business jets.”
