Praetor 600 is well-equipped to handle Canadian winters
Embraer considers Canada to be an important market, so the OEM will be delighted that Transport Canada has certified the Praetor 600. The jet has a cabin altitude of 5,800 and it circulates 100 per cent fresh air.
The Praetor 600 is capable of flying beyond 4,000 nm at long-range cruise speed.

Embraer's Praetor 600 super midsize business jet has been granted a type certificate by Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA). The Praetor 600 is capable of flying beyond 4,000 nm at long-range cruise speed or beyond 3,700 nm at Mach 0.80 from runways shorter than 4,500ft, complemented by favourable payload capability. It offers strong performance from wet and contaminated runways that feature snow or standing water, common issues during the intense Canadian winter.

The Praetor 600 is able to make nonstop flights between Toronto and London, Montreal and Paris, Calgary and Honolulu, Vancouver and San Juan. It is the first super midsize jet with full fly-by-wire technology, which powers turbulence reduction to make each flight smoother and more efficient, and reducing maintenance downtime by as much as 40 per cent compared to conventional control.

“The certification by Transport Canada Civil Aviation reinforces the great momentum of the Praetor 600 in the global market,” states president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets Michael Amalfitano. “Canada is an important market for Embraer, and 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 six-foot tall flat-floor cabin, resulting in the ultimate passenger comfort.”

Late last year, Embraer announced a series of cabin enhancements for the Praetor 600. In addition to a low cabin altitude of 5,800 ft and 100 per cent fresh air capability, Embraer made the HEPA filter standard on all Praetor aircraft, announced the certification of a new electric lavatory pocket door and approved the use of MicroShield360, a long-lasting disinfectant, antibacterial cleaner solution. This year, use of Bacoban has been also approved.

Embraer announced the first delivery of the new Praetor 600 in June of 2019, and in late 2020 delivered the first Praetor 600 to fleet launch customer Flexjet.
