2019 Embraer Jets Claim Long-Range Crown

Embraer has just introduced midsize along with super-midsize corporate business jets set for launch in 2019. The company announced they will be the longest-range aeroplanes in their class in the world. The two protagonists are the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600. Both aircraft are fully fly-by-wire, which is a first for any jet of their size. They provide exceptional active turbulence reduction and the best-in-category 5,800-foot cabin altitude with the highest aircraft payload capacity in their class.

The Praetor 500 can lay claim to being the swiftest midsize jet, capable of a maximum top speed of Mach 0.83. The two planes are both derivatives of Embraer’s Legacy 450 and 500 models, albeit with redesigned winglets and extra capacity fuel tanks providing a greater range. There is a newly styled interior design, more advanced technological features within the cabin and also the cockpit.

On the other hand, the Praetor 600 is a bold attempt by Embraer to gain further ground in the lucrative super-midsize aeroplane segment. The Praetor 600 has an intercontinental range of 3,900 nautical miles, carrying four passengers. It is fully capable of flying directly, non-stop from London to New York. The plane can be set up for 8 to 12 passengers in complete comfort, and the starting price is US$21 million.

Back to the Embraer Praetor 500, it is projected to be the fastest jet in its category. The intercontinental range is 3,250 nautical miles carrying from four to a maximum nine passengers, available at a base price US$17 million, rising to a high of US$20 million. Embraer fully expects to gain certification of the Praetor 600 during the second quarter of 2019, while the Praetor 500 will be made available during the third quarter.

Private Airbus A340: Unimaginable Luxury thematics Reaches for the Sky!

The Airbus A340 is a magnificent flying machine in its own right. Add to that an exclusive and luxurious interior that would suit royalty, and such is the incredibly high standard of interior design by British interior designer Celia Sawyer. With a touch of glamour that Celia is well known for, there has never been anything like this project before.

The owner of this Airbus A340 wanted a ‘floating palace in the clouds’. He requested grand spacious, areas with multiple entertainment options to keep guests entertained while cruising around the world in the sky. The client is a member of a royal family in the Middle East, and Celia clicked with him immediately.

With a team of artisans working on the beautiful project, the salon and lounge areas boast individual, gold-plated sections. They trace the curves of the aircraft creating a ‘wow’ look to those sections of the interior, which blends well with the unique and made to order, linear furniture that is decorated with hand-stitched Tuscan leather and elegant velvet. Two crystal chandeliers with 24-karat-gold accents adorn the lounge, while the bar area is impressively lit from beneath to create a magnificent visual effect. In the main bathroom, there is a Swarovski-crystal-and-glass washbasin, and the bathroom has midnight blue marble, and a fully integrated mirror faced TV screen.

The experimental project is a glamorous and glossy one, somewhat reminiscent of hotel or restaurant basking in high-quality leather interior furnishings. The interior does not resemble that of a plane, instead offers relaxed and pleasurable surroundings that will make passengers forget they are in the sky in a plane. Celia Sawyer’s career as an interior designer with a flair for the unexpected and brilliant! Her next project is with the Royal Navy, designing the Officers’ Mess on the HMS Queen Elizabeth warship, another prestigious and historical project.

A wing mounted on the tail in combination with the powerful turboprop engines creates the aerodynamic boost to add up to more efficiency in flight. The aircraft also burns less fuel and has lower operating costs per hour compared to traditional aircraft of similar size.

West Coast Aviation Services says it plans to add at least four more Evos to its fleet, to use them for both charter and fractional ownership programs. The airplane sells for about $7.7 million.


Kitty Hawk Flyer Personal Aircraft

The Kitty Hawk Flyer marks an exciting milestone in air travel for wealthy buyers who want to fly for fun with a minimum of effort. The all-electric aircraft is developed in Silicon Valley by Kitty Hawk Corporation, and backed by Larry Page, one of the co-founders of Google. Its light body and austere design are enough to qualify it as an Ultralight under the regulations of the Federal Aviation Administration. This means interested buyers won’t need a pilot’s license to operate it.

The Flyer is designed to fly over fresh water in uncongested areas. The pair of pontoons act as landing gear, and eight rotors provide lift. The pilot sits on top of it like a motorcycle, and operates controls mounted on a set of handlebars. Currently still in development, the final design may undergo changes and there is no official price revealed yet.


Kitty Hawk boasts it only takes “few hours of training on a flight simulator” before its personal aircraft can be taken for a solo flight. To make the ride as enjoyable as possible, the company has collaborated with various non-pilots.

A production version of the Flyer will be available for sale by the end of 2017. To qualify for the FAA’s Ultralight category, the aircraft must be used for sport or recreation only, hold only one person, and fly no faster than 55 knots (about 63 mph). There will be other restrictions on its capability and use. The cost will be announced upon launch of the production version.
