The Praetor 600 aircraft fully complies with the high level requirements of the end user and is prepared for the installation of AeroFIS, Aerodata's most modern flight inspection system.

After the modification, the aircraft will be delivered to and operated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport's Seoul Regional Office of Aviation, Flight Inspection Center in South Korea, which has conducted an international public tender for this acquisition and will be the end-user of the solution.
