Embraer Praetor 600 Earns Canadian TC

Fly-By-Wire Technology May Be Able To Reduce Maintenance Downtime By As Much As 40%

Embraer's Praetor 600 has been granted a type certificate by Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA). The Praetor 600 is becoming capable of flying beyond 4,000 nautical miles in long-range cruise speed or beyond 3,700 nautical miles at Mach .80 from runways shorter than 4,500ft. Also, it offers solid performance from wet and contaminated runways (snow, standing water) which are very common in 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. An aircraft of many firsts, the Praetor 600 is reportedly the first super-midsize jet with full fly-by-wire technology, and may be able to reduce maintenance downtime by as much as 40% compared to conventional control.
 
"The certification by Transport Canada Civil Aviation reinforces the great momentum of the Praetor 600 in the global market", said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO of Embraer Executive Jets.

"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 6-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 the lowest cabin altitude in the class (5,800 feet) and 100% 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 long-lasting disinfectant, antibacterial cleaner solution.

This year, use of Bacoban was 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.
