Embraer 175 Information

The Embraer E-Jets are a series of narrow body, medium range aircraft produced by Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. These aircraft were announced at the 1999 Paris Air Show and entered production nearly three years later in 2002. Since its introduction the aircraft series has been a great succes with deliveries to airlines worldwide.

Basically, the Embraer E-Jets line consists of two main commercial families and a business jet variants. The base model is made up of the E-170 and E-175 aircraft, with the E-190 and E-195 being the stretched versions, having more powerful engines, larger wings and strengthened landing gear structures. The E-170 and E-175, as well as the E-190 and E-195, share a 95% commonality which enhances the possibility for pilots to fly both versions.

Embraer 175 Design

The Embraer E-170 series, comprizing of the E-170 and E-175, is of low wing design with podded engines below the wings. In order to improve overall efficiency the wings are fitted with winglets, which reduce the drag of the tip vortex and provide increased lift. The double bubble fuselage provides more volume in the passenger cabine, with more room at passenger feet and shoulder levels and easier access to the overhead baggage bins.

Flight Deck

The aircraft has a highly modern, all-digital flight deck. The modular-architecture avionics suite includes a Honeywell Primus Epic Electronic Flight and Information System (EFIS) with five liquid crystal colour (LCD) displays. Furthermore, the aircraft is controlled through fly-by-wire technology with the exception of the ailerons.

Engines

The E-170 family is powered by two underwing-mounted CF34-8E turbofan engines, rated at 62.28kN. The engines are controlled by a Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC), a fully redundant, computerised management system, which optimises performance at each flight stage and reduces overall fuel consumption and maintenance costs.

The aircraft is capable of carrying 9,470 kg of fuel and is fitted with a Parker Hannifin fuel system. The E-170 Long-Range (LR) variant is fitted with additional fuel tanks installed in the baggage compartment.

Performance

The E-170 is capable of flying distances of up to 3,889 km with a full passenger seating at typical cruise speeds. Due to its high-performance, high-efficiency engines the aircraft meets and exceeds current noise and emission-related requirements established by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Furthermore forward and aft doors on both sides of the fuselage allow rapid boarding and deplaning with simultaneous servicing. The aircraft has ten-minute singe-point refuelling points and the under-wing engines can be serviced from the ground without any stands or stairs.

Embraer E-Jet Family Versions

Embraer E-170 The Embraer E-170 was the first aircraft of the family that was produced. The first model rolled out of the factory on October 29, 2001, with test flights following roughly five months later. Certification of the type took nearly two years after it was delivered to launch customer Alitalia Express in March 2004.
   
Embraer E-175 In June 2003 Embraer continued with the launch of the stretched Embraer E-175 jet in June 2003. Major operators of this type include Air Canada and Republic Airlines.
   
Embraer E-190 The Embraer E-190 is a larger stretch of the E-170 model. It has larger wings and new more powerful engines. First flight took place in March of 2004 and was launched by NY based low-cost-carrier JetBlue Airways.
   
Embraer E-195 The Embraer E-195 first flew in December 2004 and is even a larger stretch of the E-190. It was launched by European low-cost-carrier Flybe with an order for 14 of the type and 12 options.
