Praetor 500 Interior


Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer announced the Praetor 500 in 2018. Built as an evolution to the already popular Legacy 450, the Praetor 500 improves on its predecessor in a variety of ways. From fuel efficiency to airspeed, the Praetor 500 outperforms many within its class.


The Praetor 500 maintains many attributes from its predecessor that made Embraer a respected aircraft manufacturer. Previous versions of this jet boasted a flat floor, and were the first in its class to do so. The Praetor 500 is no exception, giving passengers plenty of room to stand and move around. From there, Embraer added upgrades throughout the aircraft.

Larger fuel tanks allow the Praetor 500 a range of 3,300 nautical miles. With the ability to land on runways of less than 3,000 feet, the possible destinations are endless.


The cabin of the Praetor 500 is optimized to keep passengers as comfortable as possible. With a cabin height of 6 feet and a flat floor throughout, the mobility factor is exceptional. The width is nearly 7 feet, ensuring passengers have plenty of legroom.

In addition, the cabin of the Praetor 500 is modernized with the latest technology. The cabin is integrated with Ka-Band and Gogo AVANCE L5. This ensures that passengers are able to stay connected to the Internet through the duration of their flight.

The flight deck matches the technological advancement of the cabin. Powered by Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion, crew members are capable of maintaining great situational awareness. The fly-by-wire controlling offers redundancy where it’s needed.


The Embraer Praetor 500 is capable of cruising at more than 530 miles per hour. Long-range fuel tanks allow transcontinental flight. These key performance specs paired with the style and comfort for which Embraer is known, make the Praetor 500 an exceptional aircraft.
