Embraer has rolled out its first next-generation E-Jet, an E190-E2, at its factory in São José dos Campos (Brazil).
The E190-E2’s first flight is slated for the second half of 2016 with first deliveries expected to take place in 2018.
The E2s are exclusively powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1900G geared turbofan engines.
The next-generation E195-E2 will have increased fuel capacity, giving it a maximum range of 2,450 nautical miles, up from a prior design with a range of 2,000nm, said Paulo Cesar Silva, head of commercial aviation at Embraer. The E195-E2 will have three more rows of seats than the current series. Service entry date is set for 2019.
The aircraft is in competition with Bombardier's CSeries 100, which has a maximum range of 3,100nm.
To date, the E2 programme has 640 commitments, comprising 267 firm orders and 373 options and purchase rights.
First flown in February 2002 the original E series has a total of 1,437 orders of which 1,191 have been delivered. www.embraer.com
