Approved For Service In Europe, Brazil, North America
Brazil's Embraer revealed last week that on June 30, the
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued the type certificate
for the Embraer 190 airliner, enabling the 100-seater aircraft to
enter service with European operators Finnair and Air France
regional subsidiary Régional.
The E-190 follows its smaller cousin, the Embraer 170, which was
the first commercial aircraft to receive a European type
certificate from the then-newly-created EASA in February 2004.
All Embraer 170/190 jets are now certified in Brazil. The last
member of the family to receive certification by the primary
certification agency in the country was the Embraer 195 -- which,
as Aero-News reported,
occurred last week.
The Embraer 170 is type-certified in Brazil, the US, Canada and
Europe; the Embraer 175 has type certification in Brazil, Europe
and Canada; and the Embraer 190 is certified in Brazil, the US and
Canada, and now in Europe.
The Embraer 195’s
certification in Europe is expected soon, allowing deliveries to
begin to UK customer Flybe.
Built to conform simultaneously to Brazilian, US and European
certification standards, Embraer reports that no major changes or
further testing is required when moving an airplane from one
certification basis to another. This gives airlines and leasing
companies a considerable advantage in using E-Jets.
There are presently over 150 E-Jets in operation worldwide.
Embraer is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial
jets of up to 110 seats.
