Embraer delivers first Praetor 500 in Canada

Embraer has delivered the first Praetor 500 in Canada to AirSprint Private Aviation, a fractional jet ownership company. This addition will give AirSprint three Praetor 500s in its fleet and a total of nine Embraer jets. Two of the Praetor 500 aircraft had been Legacy 450s that were converted for the company."We are pleased that our partnership with AirSprint, which began in 2016, continues to grow as they expand their fleet," said Michael Amalfitano, President andamp; CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. "When we completed the first Legacy 450 to Praetor 500 conversion earlier this year, they were delighted to provide their customers with direct access to more Canadian destinations and experiences."The Praetor 500 was first introduced in 2018 and boasts a range of 3,340 nm with a maximum operating altitude of 45,000 ft. The midsize business jet is capable of flying with full fly-by-wire flight controls and turbulence reduction capability. "To be the first in Canada to accept a new Embraer Praetor 500 helps to solidify our position as an industry leader," said James Elian, President andamp; CEO of AirSprint. "AirSprint spearheaded Fractional Ownership in Canada. We were the first then, and over 20 years later, our team continues to deliver a private aviation experience above all others."AirSprint's acceptance of the new Praetor 500 will also be its first brand-new jet with the redesigned paint job.
