Gold Aviation’s Longest Range Midsize Jets

In private aviation, the choice of aircraft significantly influences the quality, comfort, and efficiency of travel. The range of a jet, or the maximum distance it can fly without refueling, is one of the most critical factors for those opting to fly via a private jet charter. These aircraft strike a perfect balance between the agility of smaller jets and the endurance and luxury of larger models, making them ideal for medium to long-haul flights.

Gold Aviation showcases an impressive fleet, notably featuring the Embraer’s Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 jets. These aircraft exemplify advancements in midsize jet capabilities and elevate the standard of comfort and luxury in the skies. Additionally, the 500 and 600 models stand as milestones in the trajectory of midsize jets, marking a significant evolution from their predecessors, the Legacy 450 and 500. The upgrades from the Legacy models include advanced avionics, more fuel-efficient engines, and luxury interiors, setting new standards for midsize jets in terms of performance and comfort​​​​.


Praetor 500

Embraer’s Praetor 500, launched alongside the Praetor 600 in October 2018 and certified in 2019, represents a significant evolution in midsize business jets. This aircraft combines advanced technology, luxurious amenities, and notable improvements over its predecessor, the Legacy 450, to provide an unmatched flying experience. 

Range and Performance

The Praetor 500 sets a new standard with a range of 3,340 nautical miles, enabling nonstop flights across continents—from San Francisco to Gander or Miami to Seattle. It boasts a cruising speed of 466 knots and operates at a maximum altitude of 45,000 feet. The aircraft is powered by two Honeywell HTF7500E engines, each offering 6,540 lbs of thrust, ensuring efficient and powerful performance​​​​.


Passenger Capacity and Cabin Comfort

The cabin, stretching 7.32 meters in length, 2.08 meters in width, and 1.83 meters in height, can comfortably accommodate up to 9 passengers. Most configurations, however, are designed for seven passengers, maximizing space and comfort. 

The interior design draws inspiration from Brazilian landscapes, featuring carbon fiber stowable table seats that recline, swivel, and can be converted into fully flat beds. The meticulous attention to detail is evident in the cabin’s stitch patterns, silk and wool carpets, and an ultra-quiet environment conducive to work, relaxation, or conversation​​​​.


Luxury Amenities

A stone-floored, highly functional galley includes a microwave, conventional oven, refrigerator, coffee brewer, and fine dining ware, catering to all your in-flight dining needs. The generous baggage compartment ensures you have all you need for your journey. State-of-the-art connectivity via Gogo AVANCE L5 and Ka-band technology offers reliable internet, complemented by the Honeywell Ovation Select Cabin Management Suite for 1080P HD video streaming and immersive audio​​​​.


Notable Improvements

Compared to its predecessor, the Praetor 500 offers enhanced performance with a greater range and faster cruising speed, thanks to its more efficient engines and aerodynamic design. The luxurious and spacious cabin is a significant upgrade, designed to provide the utmost comfort and convenience during long flights. 

The advanced Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion® flight deck, equipped with the latest navigational and safety features, ensures a safer and more intuitive flying experience, underscoring Embraer’s commitment to innovation and excellence in aviation.​


Praetor 600

The Embraer Praetor 600 is a pinnacle of performance and luxury in the super-midsize business jet category. Launched in 2018 and having commenced deliveries in 2019, this aircraft has quickly garnered attention for its exceptional capabilities and comfort​​​​​​.

Superior Capabilities

The Praetor 600’s range is remarkable, boasting the ability to fly 4,018 nautical miles nonstop, thanks to its two powerful Honeywell HTF7500E engines. This impressive range allows it to perform flights from London to New York without refueling, making it an ideal choice for transcontinental travel. The aircraft’s maximum cruising speed of 466 knots is among its class’s fastest​​​​​​.

One of the Praetor 600’s most significant technological advancements is its full fly-by-wire control system. This feature gives pilots unprecedented control by automatically adjusting to reduce turbulence and improve flight smoothness. 

This system, combined with its Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion flight deck, enhances safety and operational efficiency, ensuring a comfortable and reliable journey for all on board​​​​.


Luxury Features

The cabin of the Praetor 600 offers a spacious environment with a six-foot-tall, flat-floor design that can comfortably seat up to 12 passengers. The interior is configurable to include fully reclining club seats that can be converted into four beds and the largest baggage space in its class, ensuring ample room for passenger comfort and convenience on long-haul flights​​​​.

Attention to detail is evident throughout the cabin. The inclusion of an optional in-flight entertainment system and a luxurious, stone-floored galley equipped with modern appliances underlines Embraer’s commitment to providing a superior flight experience​​.
