Sao Paulo - Embraer has received Type Certificate for its E195-E2 jet from three regulatory bodies: the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
The E195-E2 is the largest commercial aircraft ever produced by Embraer and is part of the manufacturer's new generation E-Jet E2 family alongside the E190-E2 and E175-E2.
"As with the E190-E2, we again obtained the type certification simultaneously from three leading global regulatory authorities," said Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva, President & CEO of Embraer.
"This is another great achievement from our engineering team. They have built the most efficient single-aisle in the market and now have earned the certifications for it. And again, everything on schedule and exceeding expectations," added the Chief Executive.
The E195-E2 will enter service in the second half of 2019 with Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras. Binter Canarias from Spain will also receive its first E195-E2 in 2019.
Embraer used two prototypes of the aircraft during the certification campaign of E195-E2 - one for aerodynamic and performance testing and another for validating cabin layout and maintenance tasks.
According to the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer, the E195-E2 is the most environmentally friendly aircraft in its class, operating with the lowest level of CO2 and noise emissions.
Like the E190-E2, the E195-E2 will also have longer maintenance intervals compared to other planes in the same segments with 10,000 flight hours for basic maintenance. It means an extra 15 days for the use of the aircraft over a ten year period compared with the current generation of E-Jets.
The E195-E2 features new high-performance engines, brand new wings, full fly-by-wire, and new landing gear. Compared to the first generation E195, 75% of the aircraft is equipped with new systems and airframe structures.
The cabin can be configured with 120 seats in two classes or up to 146 seats in a single-class.
