Industry Embraer E195-E2 gets triple certified by ANAC, FAA and EASA
Aircraft manufacturer Embraer has announced, that its E195-E2 aircraft has been certified by the authorities ANAC, FAA and EASA.
This triple certification of Embraer´s E195-E2 aircraft is another big milestone for the Brazilian manufacturer. The ANAC (Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil), FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) all granted a type certificate for the aircraft.
As being the largest of the three E2-Family aircraft, the E195-E2 has special importance for Embraer. The company seeks to deliver the first aircraft to launch customer Azul Linhas Aereas this year. Spain´s Binter Canarias will also receive its first E195-E2 this year.
Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva, Embraer President & CEO said: “Just like the E190-E2, we once again obtained type certification simultaneously from three major world regulatory authorities [...] This is another great achievement from our engineering and program teams. They’ve built, and now have certification for, the most efficient single-aisle jet on the market. And they’ve done it again right on schedule and exceeding specification.”
John Slattery, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation added: “Our flight tests confirmed that the aircraft is better than its original specification. Fuel consumption is 1.4% lower than expected - that’s 25.4% less fuel per seat compared to the current-generation E195. Maintenance costs are 20% lower [...] There’s no question that airlines are going to love this airplane’s economics. The E195-E2 is the ideal aircraft for growing a regional business and complementing existing low-cost and mainline fleets.”
The E195-E2 is a remake of the popular E195 and features new state-of-the-art high bypass ratio engines, a completely new wing, and a new landing gear. Furthermore, a brand- new avionics suite has been installed, allowing the aircraft to perform as secure as possible. Compared to the first generation E195, 75% of aircraft systems are new. Moreover, three additional seat rows will allow operators to transport more passengers. Embraer stated, that the cabin can be configured with 120 seats in two classes or with up to 146 seats in a single-class layout.
To date, the E-Jet Family from Embraer has logged in more than 1,800 orders and 1,500 deliveries. The company is among the leading manufacturers of commercial aircraft with up to 150 seats. More than 100 customers from around the world are operating Embraer E-Jet aircraft.
