Add Canada to the list of countries that have granted Embraer’s E195-E2 and E190-E2 commercial jets type certification. With their certification from Transport Canada, the jets now hold certification from the Federal Aviation Administration, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, and the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil. The aerospace firm is now clear to deliver the first of 50 E195-E2s to Toronto-based regional airline Porter Airlines. The delivery, expected to occur in coming days, will be the first in North America for the E195-E2. In addition to 50 firm orders for E195-E2s, Porter has purchase rights for another 50.
The E195-E2, which entered service in 2019, is available in 120-, 132-, and 146-seat configurations. Embraer claims the jet is the most environmentally friendly in the single-aisle segment, as it can save up to 25% carbon dioxide emissions compared to previous-generation aircraft. Earlier this year, Embraer and Pratt & Whitney conducted testing on an E195-E2 operating on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Embraer says when using 100% SAF, an up to 85% reduction in emissions is possible.
The E190-E2 is available in 97-, 106-, and 114-seat configurations. Embraer says the jet can achieve 17% lower emissions than previous-generation aircraft. Additionally, the manufacturer says the E190-E2’s take-off performance from hot and high conditions enables a 600-nautical-mile (1,111-kilometer) increase in range compared to current-generation aircraft. The E190-E2, the first model in the E2 family, received steep approach certification from the EASA in June 2021.
The E195-E2 & E190-E2
Both the E190-E2 and E195-E2 have the lowest external noise levels and longest maintenance intervals in the single-aisle category, Embraer says. Each has a 41,000-foot (12,497-meter) service ceiling and a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.82. The E195-E2 has a maximum flight range of 2,600 nm (4,815 km) and a 135,585-pound (61,500-kilogram) maximum takeoff weight. The E190-E2 has a 2,850-nm (5,278-km) flight range and a 124,340-lb (56,400-kg) maximum takeoff weight.
