17 Embraer aircraft delivered in second quarter


Embraer delivered 17 aircraft in this year’s second quarter, consisting of four commercial aircraft and thirteen business jets.

As for the commercial aircraft, two E175s and two E190-E2s have been delivered. Among the business jets are two Phenom 100s, seven Phenom 300s, one Legacy 650, one Praetor 500 and two Praetor 600s.

Embraer also supplied the 1600th E-jet. This was to Helvetic Airways in Switzerland. The Swiss company also exchanged four E190-E2s that were still on order for the larger E195-E2. Congo Airways also changed an order; in December, the airline ordered two E175s, while Congo Airways now wants two E190-E2s instead. The agreement also includes an option to purchase two more aircraft.

Finally, Embraer supplied the first Phenom 300E. This was intended for law firm Dunham & Jones in Texas. The E stands for “enhanced” and means, among other things, that the aircraft is faster thanks to new engines. Furthermore, the aircraft has a greater flight range than its predecessor. The interior has also been addressed. The aircraft is now able to fly 2010 nautical miles (approximately 3723 kilometers) with five passengers at a cruising speed of 464 kts (about 859.33 kilometers per hour).
