Embraer and Western Air sign Flight Hour Pool program for ERJ-145s

Embraer has signed a Flight Hour Pool Program agreement with Western Air, from the Bahamas, to provide repairable component support for the carrier’s fleet of ERJ-145 aircraft. Western Air recently purchased three ERJ-145s from Embraer, becoming the first operator of the aircraft in the country, and the operator plans to purchase additional aircraft by the end of the fourth quarter of 2018.

The multiyear Flight Hour Pool Program for the carrier’s fleet of Embraer jets includes material services engineering and advanced component exchanges from Embraer’s spare parts warehouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Western Air, our newest ERJ-145 operator in the Caribbean, to the Embraer Family!”, said Paulo McCluskey, Vice President, Embraer Customer Support and Services, Commuter/On Demand Aviation. “The support of the OEM is a natural fit for the customer. Embraer’s Pool Program will allow Western Air to concentrate on their daily operations, while Embraer manages the supply-chain for rotable components.”

“We are looking forward to working with Embraer as we transition into our new fleet of ERJ-145s. The support of the Pool Program will be instrumental in the upkeep of our daily operations,” said Rexy Rolle, VP of Operations and General Counsel at Western Air.
