Falcona had the pleasure of viewing the brand new Embraer Praetor 600 private jet when it came to Manchester Airport for a demo flight. The aircraft was straight from the factory in Brazil and has been around Europe for showing potential customers.
We had the opportunity to take a closer look at the aircraft and speak to the pilots about its capabilities and where it will fit in the charter market.
