Embraer and FlightSafety International have announced the launch of the fourth Praetor simulator, which will be based in Europe, at a location to be announced at a later date. The new Praetor simulator is planned to start operating by the end of 2024.
Both companies are also opening a new Praetor full-flight simulator in Orlando, Florida. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has already qualified the simulator. Initial training for customers is now available with the recurrent training scheduled to start in October.
The Praetor 500 and the Praetor 600 are the most technologically advanced aircraft in their categories. The Praetor 500 has an intercontinental range of 3,340 nautical miles (6,186 km) with four passengers and NBAA IFR Reserves. It is capable of nonstop flights such as Miami to Seattle or Los Angeles to New York. Its sibling, the Praetor 600, with an intercontinental range of 4,018 nautical miles (7,441 km) is capable of nonstop flights from Paris to New York or São Paulo to Miami with four passengers and NBAA IFR Reserves.
The Embraer DNA Design interior includes a six-foot-tall, flat-floor cabin, with stone flooring, and a vacuum service lavatory. The turbulence reduction capability and 5,800-foot cabin altitude, complemented by a whisper-silent cabin, have set the highest standards in customer experience in both the midsize and super-midsize categories.
Advanced technology throughout the cabin is also a trait of the Embraer DNA Design, beginning with the industry-exclusive Upper Tech Panel that displays flight information and offers cabin management features also available on personal devices through Honeywell Ovation Select. High-capacity, ultra-high-speed connectivity for all aboard is available through Viasat’s Ka-band, with typical speeds of around 20Mbps and video streaming capability, another industry-exclusive in midsize jets.
