AirSprint increases long-range capabilities with Praetor 500
Fractional operator AirSprint has increased its Embraer offering to nine following the addition of a new Praetor 500. The aircraft can fly from Canada, where it is based, to the Caribbean and Central America.
The Praetor 500 is capable of non-stop flights of 3,340 nm at long-range cruise speeds.

AirSprint Private Aviation has taken delivery of a new Praetor 500, increasing its Praetor 500 count to three and its Embraer collection to nine in total.

The Praetor 500 is capable of non-stop flights of 3,340 nm at long-range cruise speeds. The aircraft enables AirSprint to provide non-stop flights from airports coast-to-coast in Canada, with service across North America, the Caribbean, Central America, Hawaii and Europe.

“To be the first in Canada to accept a new Embraer Praetor 500 helps to solidify our position as an industry leader,” says James Elian, president and CEO of AirSprint. “AirSprint spearheaded fractional ownership in Canada. We were the first then, and over 20 years later, our team continues to deliver a private aviation experience above all others.”

“We are pleased that our partnership with AirSprint, which began in 2016, continues to grow as it expands its fleet. When we completed the first Legacy 450 to Praetor 500 conversion earlier this year, it was delighted to provide its customers with direct access to more Canadian destinations and experiences,” adds Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.
