Embraer Sees Synthetic Vision Approved on Praetor 500 and 600

Nov 27,2020

The capability has been certified by the Brazilian ANAC and the FAA.

Embraer announced on September 28 that it had secured Brazilian ANAC and FAA approval for its synthetic vision system (Synthetic Vision Guidance System) upgrade to the Collins Pro Line Fusion flight deck on its Praetor 500 and 600 business jets. The manufacturer is the first to obtain such approval.

SVGS operates independently of the enhanced vision system found on the Fusion integrated flight deck. The option ¡°provides pilots with a dynamic perception of position, trend, and motion, facilitating the transition to visual references,¡± according to a press release, and enabling pilots to complete approaches to lower minimums. Using the SVGS, the aircraft can be flown to a decision height of 150 feet agl (as opposed to 200 feet), allowing for approaches with lower ceilings. The SVGS can be used with or without a head-up display (HUD).

¡°At Embraer, we are committed to continuously improving our already industry-leading products to deliver the ultimate experience in business aviation,¡± said Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. ¡°Just two months after certifying the electric pocket door and making the HEPA filter standard, we are proud to certify another Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 innovation.

Thanks to our unparalleled engineering team and world-class partnership with Collins Aerospace, Embraer is proud to offer business aviation¡¯s first Synthetic Vision Guidance System on the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600, further solidifying their position as the most disruptive and technologically advanced midsize business jets in the market.¡±

The SVGS is retrofittable to Legacy 450, Legacy 500, Praetor 500, and Praetor 600 aircraft, in addition to its availability on new deliveries. The Praetor 500 and 600 were announced in October 2018, and certificated less than a year later. The 500 boasts a range of 3,340 nm with four passengers and NBAA IFR reserves. The Praetor 600 is in the super-midsize category, and its range makes possible nonstop flights from Paris to New York, or São Paulo to Miami¡ªat a range of 4,018 nm.

In the Last Decade

With the rapid growth of China's civil aviation market, the civil aviation industry has gradually integrated into the world aviation industry chain. China attaches great importance to its development. The R&D and operation of domestic civil aircraft models such as CR929, C919, ARJ21, MA series regional jet and AC series helicopter provide important support for the development of China's civil aviation transportation industry and transformation and upgrading of industries.

In the Next Decade

The development of next-generation avionics not only introduces new ideas and concepts, but also needs new devices, new technologies, and new development tools to support. With the rapid progress of 5G communication technology, high-performance computing simulation technology, AI technology, VR and other related technologies lead to the rapid development of avionics system, the continuous improvement of integration, intelligence and IMA has accelerated the realization of the next-generation avionics. It has become an indispensable part of all types of aircraft, and plays a very important role in ensuring the safety and reliability of large aircraft to complete relevant tasks.

In the face of the severe and complex international epidemic and the world economic situation, during the 14th Five-Year Plan, China's avionics industry will continue to take the demand of civil market as the driving force, focusing on the development requirements of avionics technology, actively carry out foreign exchanges and constantly expand the results of mutually beneficial cooperation, aiming to accelerate the development of avionics technology, and will promote the continuous improvement of independent innovation and R & D capability in domestic avionics field.

Under this background, the 10th Annual Civil Avionics International Forum will be held in the city of Shanghai on June 9th- 10th£¬focus on Aviation 14th Five-Year Plan Lay Out, Pay Attention to the Development of Avionics Industry, Improve the Capability of Independent R&D, register your interest or get in touch with Sara for more details.
