Embraer E195-E2 Granted Certification by ANAC, FAA and EASA

Embraer has received type certification for its E195-E2 aircraft from the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency ANAC, the US FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA.

“Just like the E190-E2, we once again obtained type certification simultaneously from three major world regulatory authorities,” Embraer chief executive Paulo Cesar de Souza e Silva said.

“This is another great achievement from our engineering and programme teams. They’ve built, and now have certification for, the most efficient single-aisle jet on the market. And they’ve done it again right on schedule and exceeding specification.”

John Slattery, President & CEO, Embraer Commercial Aviation, added: “Our flight tests confirmed that the aircraft is better than its original specification. Fuel consumption is 1.4% lower than expected – that’s 25.4% less fuel per seat compared to the current-generation E195. Maintenance costs are 20% lower.

“There’s no question that airlines are going to love this airplane’s economics. The E195-E2 is the ideal aircraft for growing regional business and complementing existing low-cost and mainline fleets.”

Embraer has given no date yet for first delivery.
