São Paulo, Brazil, August 12th, 2019 - In the month that the company celebrates its golden jubilee, Embraer will exhibit the new Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 business jets at LABACE, the largest business aviation show of Latin America. The Praetor jets, Embraer's latest aircraft, are the most technologically advanced aircraft in their categories and they will be on static display from August 13-15 at Congonhas Airport, in São Paulo.
The Praetor 500 is a midsize jet with a continental range of 3,250 nautical miles (6,019 km) for up to nine passengers, capable of single-stop flights from São Paulo to any city in South America or to destinations in Europe or North America. The Praetor 600 is a super-midsize jet for up to 12 passengers, with an intercontinental range of 4,018 nautical miles (7,441 km), the farthest among its competitors, allowing for nonstop flights between São Paulo (Brazil) and Miami, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Fort Lauderdale, or Madrid (Spain) and Recife (Brazil).
"With unprecedented performance, our new jets introduce unique flexibility to the market. The Praetor 600 has the class-exclusive advantage of the shortest field length with the longest range, flying nonstop from São Paulo to Miami. Both models deliver a customer experience yet unseen in their classes. With superior design and ergonomics, the Embraer DNA Design is complemented by the most comfortable flight and the best cabin altitude (5,800 ft) in its class as well as the smoothest possible flight, rendered by the class-exclusive turbulence reduction based on Embraer's full fly-by-wire technology. High-speed Internet connectivity is among the features that serve customers with greater productivity and comfort," said Gustavo Teixeira, VP Sales, Latin America, Embraer Executive Jets.
Brazilian Market Highlights
In addition to a significant global market participation, with more than 1,400 business jets delivered, Embraer has a leading presence in the Brazilian market. Over the last 10 years, one of every two business jets delivered in Brazil was made by Embraer. With a high rate of utilization, one Embraer executive jet takes flight every 20 minutes in Brazil, on average, attesting to the company portfolio's suitability to the broadest profiles of Brazilian customers, rendering continuous productivity gains.
"The business jet is an incomparable productivity tool and this is why we designed our aircraft to serve entrepreneurs and executives in the region with the versatility for them to reach many more destinations, when and where needed," explains Teixeira. "With connectivity throughout the flight and time saved from the traditional commercial aviation bottlenecks of the region, customers can take care of business and deliver greater returns to their companies and ventures."
Aircraft on Static Display
In addition to the new Praetor jets, Embraer will exhibit the Phenom 100EV, the third generation of its acclaimed Phenom 100, the most successful jet in Brazil's business aviation history, and the Phenom 300E, the best-selling business jet for the last decade, with more than 500 aircraft in operation in 30 countries. In celebration of its golden jubilee, Embraer will also exhibit its pioneer, the Bandeirante, a twin-engine turboprop aircraft that led to the creation of Embraer on August 19, 1969 for its serial production.

This year, Embraer's Customer Services and Support team will bring TechCare Space to LABACE, presenting a full suite of efficient support solutions to provide the best after-sales experience to customers, who are supported by the Network of Owned and Authorized service centers throughout Latin America as well as a dedicated 24/7 call center.
