Embraer Praetor 600 granted Canadian type certificate
Embraer’s Praetor 600 super-midsize jet has been granted a type certificate by Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA). Canada is an important market for Embraer Executive Jets according to its president & CEO, Michael Amalfitano.
“The certification by Transport Canada Civil Aviation reinforces the great momentum of the Praetor 600 in the global market,” he said.
“We are excited to continue to serve this market with our industry-leading products. The Praetor 600 is the world’s most disruptive and technologically advanced super-midsize jet with superior performance and technology in addition to offering the smoothest flight in a best-in-class 6-foot-tall flat-floor cabin, resulting in the ultimate passenger comfort.”
The Praetor 600 can fly more than 4,000nm in long-range cruise speed and over 3,700nm at Mach .80 from runways shorter than 4,500ft. Also, its performance from wet and contaminated runways (snow and standing water), which are very common in the Canadian winter, played a significant role in achieving certification.
The Praetor 600 is now the farthest-flying super-midsize jet, capable of nonstop flights between Toronto and London, Montreal and Paris, Calgary and Honolulu. Also, its full fly-by-wire technology, which powers turbulence reduction and improves efficiency, can also reduce maintenance downtime by as much as 40% compared with conventional control, said Embraer.
Embraer announced the first delivery of the Praetor 600 in June 2019, and in late 2020 delivered the first Praetor 600 to fleet launch customer Flexjet.
