Disruptive by choice: The Embraer Praetor 600 private jet
Published: March 10, 2020
The media has been filled with negative outlooks on the global markets, blaming the COVID-19, housing bubbles and the ‘correction that was required’.
But amongst the standard doomsday articles stood a positive outlook for business jet deliveries. Up 15% in 2019 partly with thanks to the new Praetor range.
Disrupting the business jet landscape
Embraer’s Phenom 300 family continues to win the coveted most delivered business jet (light) title. But Embraer have always left a gap in the market when it comes to range.
The new Praetor family swooped into the market providing new-found range capabilities while maintaining the high-end and practical cabin layout, advanced systems and operating efficiency.
The Praetor 600 has a range of 4,018 nautical miles, very similar to the older Bombardier Challenger aircraft, but more than the Challenger 300. New York to London and Sydney to Singapore are now valid options for new owners.
Beauty found within
If you have followed us for some time, you’d know that we’re big fans of Embraer’s Phenom 300E. Especially the smart and practical cabin.
The Praetor’s cabin is stunning, beautifully appointed and comes in various configurations.
Additional perks include the lower cabin altitude leaving travellers fresh after the flight.
Not only do the seats look welcoming, they can also lay flat allowing executives to catch some shut eye before arriving to the next meeting.
The in-cabin technology allows home-like wifi and immersive touch screens to control all aspects of the cabin environment.
You can literally take the kitchen sink
Another aspect of the smaller Phenom’s that we love us the ample luggage space. Being able to take your normal suitcases as well as golf clubs, skis or smaller surfboards broadens the opportunities to the travelling public.
The Praetor is no different. With considerable aft luggage space but also the addition of easily-accessible in-cabin luggage space as well.
So what’s the price?
The base price of the Praetor 500 is $16.9m USD and the 600 slightly more at $20.9m USD. The impressive ‘Bosa Nova’ interior will add a further $750,000 USD to the price tag.
This is only a brief overview of the Praetor. Do yourself a favour and enjoy the viewing experience of their artistic brochure.
