About the Embraer ERJ-145 & (ERJ 140, ERJ 135) ERJ-145: With the onslaught of jet turbine powered regional aircrat, a new heated contest in the under 100 passeneger market has developed. The Brazilian aircrat manufacturer Embraer has taken their success in the turbo prop powered regional airline market (EMB 110 Bandeirante, EMB 120 Brasilia) and designed a new-generation, 50-seat, twin-turbofan airliner that features jet performance with low operating costs. It is a direct competitor to the Canadair (Bombardier) Regional Jet CRJ.

Embraer ventured into this developing new market and created the ERJ 145. The aircraft is available in Standard, Extended Range (ER) and Long Range (LR) versions. The cockpit features advanced electronic flight instruments and digital control systems. Since its first delivery in December 1996, over 250 aircraft have been purchased by commercial airline customers worldwide.

ERJ-135: With the ERJ 135, Embraer is addressing the needs regional airlines have for a jetliner of under 40 seats to serve thinner routes. Development of the ERJ 135 was started in 1997. This aircraft derivitive from the ERJ 145 is 11.8 ft shorter than and has 98% commonality with the the ERJ 145 . The crew type rating is the same for both aircraft thus reducing considerably operational, maintenance and training costs for operators having both types in their fleets.

The ERJ 135 features latest generation digital avionics and computerized flight controls. Its full standing sized cabin accomodates up to 37 passengers in three-abreast seating at 31 inch pitch and is fitted with wardrobe, overhead bins, toilet and galley. Similarly to the ERJ 145, the passenger cabin is pressurized to 7.8 psi. The first ERJ 135 was delivered in June 1999.

ERJ-140: The recently launched ERJ-140 offers regional airlines an aircraft in the 44-seat niche. The ERJ 140 is a pressurized jet transport aircraft based on the ERJ 145. Launched in September 1999, it performed its maiden flight on June 27, 2000. It will enter service in the first quarter of 2001.

The ERJ 140 features the same construction and operational characteristics of the ERJ 145 and ERJ 135, with which it has 98% commonality.

These new regional jetliners give airlines better schedule and service flexibility, offer the possibility of direct service between more locations, and allow cost-effective service on routes that would be unprofitable with larger jets.

To better serve the commercial airline industry, Embraer is currently developing a new jetliner family in the 70 to 110-seat category - the ERJ 170, ERJ 190-100 & ERJ 190-200. With the introduction of these new 70, 98 and 108 seat aircraft, joining models offering 37, 44 and 50 seat capacities, Embraer becomes the only manufacturer to offer such a complete range of regional jets with just two aircraft families.

Embraers risk into the regional jet market is paying off. This common family of aircraft continues robust sales throughout the world. It is a beautiful aircraft that is becoming a common site at airports.
