Embraer delivers 14 Commercial and 11 Executive Jets in 1Q18

Embraer has delivered 14 jets – 11 E175s and three E190s – to the commercial aviation market across the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific. In the business aviation market, 11 aircraft were delivered in the same period, being eight light jets and three large jets.

The quarter’s main highlight was the triple certification for the E190-E2, the first member of the E-Jets E2 family of commercial aircraft, from the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil – ANAC), the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency). It is the first time that an aircraft program with the level of complexity of the E2 receives a type certificate from three major worldwide certification authorities simultaneously.

Before the certification, Embraer announced some final flight tests results confirming the E2 as the most efficient single-aisle aircraft on the market. In fuel consumption, the E190-E2 proved to be 1.3% better than originally expected, a 17.3% improvement compared to the current- generation E190.
