About this aircraft

  • The Praetor 500 launched alongside the Praetor 600 in 2018 and was certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency and US Federal Aviation Administration in August and September 2019 respectively, with the first aircraft delivered in the same year.
  • The jet is typically configured to accommodate six or eight passengers, with the latter layout featuring a smaller galley and a two-seat divan. An extra passenger can be seated in the enclosed lavatory if needed.
  • There's space in the baggage hold for around seven suitcases.
  • The Praetor 500 has a maximum range of 5,790 km and can fly non-stop from Miami to Seattle, San Francisco to Gander, Singapore to Beijing, and Dubai to Bangkok.
  • According to Embraer, the Praetor 500 is the fastest midsize jet that can fly from the west coast of the USA to Europe with just one stop.

An upgrade on the popular Legacy 450, the Praetor 500 is a class-leading business jet in areas like fuel efficiency and airspeed.

Interior design

The Praetor 500's cabin is designed with comfort in mind. At six feet high and seven feet wide with a flat floor throughout, there's plenty of room for passengers to stretch their legs.

The cabin is usually presented in either a six-seat layout with two club seats, two forward-facing single seats and a belted lavatory seat; or an eight-seat configuration with a reduced galley to accommodate a two-seat divan at the front of the cabin.
