Brand new to the corporate jet market, travelers with the keenest eye for luxury will hone in on an Embraer Praetor 500. Marketed as an upgrade to its predecessor, the Embraer Legacy 450, the Embraer Praetor 500 was intricately designed to pay homage to the beautiful beaches of its homeland, Brazil. In just less than a year and a half, this aircraft has made waves in the private jet charter industry, setting a new standard of high-end private aircraft.

The Embraer Praetor 500 is ideal for the executive traveler, for the businessman looking to multitask while traveling, for the VIP desiring ample space to move about the cabin during flight. This incredible feat of design draws in charter customers, appealing to their sense of high-quality comfort and amenities.

Shortly after its completion, this jet received a triple certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil, and the Federal Aviation Administration. This triad succeeded in launching the Praetor 500 to the top of the market.
