Embraer’s Praetor 600 super-midsize business jet has been granted a type certificate by Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA).
The Praetor 600 has surpassed all its main design goals with its ability to fly beyond 4,000 nautical miles in long-range cruise speed or beyond 3,700 nautical miles at Mach .80 from runways shorter than 4,500 ft, complemented by an outstanding payload capability. Also, it offers unparalleled performance from wet and contaminated runways (snow, standing water) which are very common in the intense Canadian winter.
The Praetor 600 is now the farthest-flying super-midsize jet, able to make nonstop flights between Toronto and London, Montreal and Paris, Calgary and Honolulu, Vancouver and San Juan. An aircraft of many firsts, the Praetor 600 is the first super-midsize jet with full fly-by-wire technology, which powers turbulence reduction that not only makes every flight the smoothest but also the most efficient possible, being able to reduce maintenance downtime by as much as 40% compared to conventional control.
