As reported, Embraer Executive Jets (a subsidiary of Embraer business aircraft) at the EBACE exhibition 2019, which starts at the end of May, will demonstrate six business jets on a static platform: Phenom 100EV, Phenom 300E, Legacy 650E, Lineage 1000E, and there are also two new Praetor 500 and Praetor 600. The decision on Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 will be made later.
Also in the exhibition will be attended by top managers of the Brazilian manufacturer. A large press conference is planned for the manufacturer, at which company executives will answer all questions from journalists and are expected to tell about new programs. This year's event will take place from May 21-23, traditionally at the PalExpo exhibition center.
“We are developing the potential of the Legacy 450/500 so that customers can fully enjoy the value that these disruptive products offer,” commented Alvadi Serpa, product strategy manager. This means that by modifying the Legacy 450 and 500, the engineers were able to improve flight performance, and that makes the Praetor 500 and 600 more efficient. Many analysts have already argued about a very competent and timely upgrade, although a “well charged” one, however, Embraer does not agree with them. According to the manufacturer, managed to get very stylish cars that will make a revolution in their classes. “Praetor will be“ technologically advanced aircraft ”that many current owners of Embraer business jets will appreciate, the company said.
Of course, that special attention will be paid to the two jets of the Praetor family. Last October, the Embraer Executive Jets introduced the new Praetor family, which included two models of the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600. The “Five Hundreds” is positioned as an average business jet with a range of 6019 km (with 4 passengers), “six hundred” flies up to 7223 km with a similar number of passengers, and belong to the so-called super middle class.
The new aircraft will take place in the Embraer lineup between the Legacy 500 and Legacy 650.
Two Praetor 600 prototypes have already passed flight tests. The cost of the machines will be $ 20.995 million (Praetor 600) and $ 16.995 (Praetor 500). Owners of the Legacy 450 can also upgrade their aircraft to the Praetor 500 version for $ 500,000.
