E-Jets Go the Distance

The Advanced Range (AR) version of the E170 can carry a full load of passengers up to 2,100 nm (3,892 km). See how far the E170 flies by choosing a city near you.

Ranges are indicative only, are based on ISA temperatures, zero winds, and maximum passengers in standard, single-class configuration and are not to be used for flight planning or dispatch.

Less Ground Time. More Air Time.

The E-Jets maintenance plan emphasizes simplified procedures and longer check intervals to help keep costs low.
Routine checks, every 120 flight hours or 14 days (whichever comes first), can be performed overnight.
Basic checks are scheduled every 750 flight hours and are easily performed overnight.
Heavy checks for aircraft structure occur every 20,000 flight cycles.

All in the Family

A high degree of spare parts commonality among the E-Jets family (up to 86%) delivers cost savings right to the bottom line. Inventories are reduced, maintenance procedures streamlined, and crew training and transition expenses are minimized.

With cross crew qualification, differences training, differences checking and recurrent training are some of the simplest in the industry and use the latest computer-based training and simulator tools. The FAA grades E-Jet training in each of these categories at level A.

There are minimal training differences instruction required for maintenance personnel and flight attendants and none for flight dispatchers or operations engineers.

With the benefits of a common family, airline schedulers and crew planners will find last-minute equipment changes easier to accommodate.

Pit Stop Speed

Since they are designed for fast, efficient, simultaneous, multi-point ground servicing thanks to four main cabin doors and two easily accessible cargo holds, E-Jets can turnaround in as few as 15 minutes.

Less time on the ground means greater productivity and higher daily utilization, which helps to keep seat mile/kilometer costs low.

An Optimized Design

An optimized design means that E-Jets are built with the lowest possible aircraft operating empty weight in order to carry the highest revenue-generating payload.  Since fuel consumption is proportional to aircraft weight, a lighter airplane translates directly into cost savings that go right to the bottom line.

A streamlined maintenance program, a high degree of parts commonality among the family and fast turnaround times increase overall utilization and efficiency while decreasing unit costs.

CENTRAL MAINTENANCE COMPUTER

E-Jets have a central brain called the CMC - the central maintenance computer.

All major E-Jet systems have an interface with the CMC that collects fault reports, stores maintenance messages and assists troubleshooting. The information can be accessed from the cockpit and from four LAN ports on the aircraft via a laptop computer for fast downloading and analysis.

Fly-By-Wire

E-Jets incorporate fly-by-wire technology that helps to reduce pilot workload, improves aircraft performance, simplifies systems architecture and minimizes weight and maintenance.

Fly-by-wire replaces manual operation of traditional heavy mechanical & hydro-mechanical flight controls and their associated networks of cables, cranks and pulleys, with an electronic interface. Pilot commands are converted to electronic signals which are processed by an on-board computer that regulates the movements of actuators at each control surface.

Automatic structural load protection, compensation for engine thrust asymmetry and configuration changes, and highly reliable primary flight in the pitch, roll and yaw axes work in concert to provide flight crews with aircraft that are uncomplicated to handle yet exceptionally responsive to pilot commands.

Cockpit

E-Jets incorporate a human-centered design approach emphasizing physical and cognitive requirements and abilities. The ergonomic placement of instruments and controls in a dark and quiet environment creates unsurpassed situational awareness that reduces pilot workload.

The Honeywell Primus Epic digital avionics suite has five large-format, 8 x 10-inch, active matrix liquid crystal displays. The "smart" flat panels present information in a clean, simplified arrangement.

There is a cursor control device on the console, similar to what you would find on a laptop computer, to simplify data input and movement between screens.

PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAYS (PFD) are used to show:
 Attitude Direction Indicator (ADI)
 airspeed and altitude indications
 Horizon Situation Indicator (HSI)
 flight modes (flight director & auto-throttle)
 NAV and/or COM radio frequencies

MULTI-FUNCTION DISPLAYS (MFD) have these features:
 map or plan navigation format & various synoptic formats
 menu softkey that selects a format and controls various systems
 TCAS and weather radar functions
 maintenance & systems configuration data
 redundancy to display both PFD and EICAS formats

ENGINE INDICATON & CREW ALERTING SYSTEM (EICAS) is used to monitor:
 system indications
 engine & APU information
 cabin pressurization information
 fuel information
 flap/speed brake settings
 landing gear
 trim positions

Airlines can choose to configure their E-Jet flight decks with heads up displays (HUD). E-Jets were the first commercial aircraft to have dual HUD. The HUD feature displays critical flight information on a transparent glass panel positioned between the pilot and windshield. In landing situations with restricted approach visibility, HUD provides an extra margin of safety by allowing pilots to keep their eyes on the runway rather than continuously looking down at instrument panels.

KEEPING YOU AHEAD

Reliability is the cornerstone of scheduled airline operations. That's why Embraer developed AHeAD-PRO, an innovative aircraft health, analysis and diagnostic system available on every E-Jet.

AHeAd-PRO is a computational, web-based platform that allows airlines to continuously monitor the performance of an E-Jet while in flight. It regularly transmits fault identification data for analysis by ground personnel so they can plan maintenance remedies at a downline station.

In-flight fault messages are received from the EICAS and central maintenance computer and transmitted via the ACARS network. Using links to Embraer's digital technical publications, errors are identified, correlated, and logged.

AHeAd-PRO allows airline maintenance teams to continually monitor each E-Jet's operating history in the fleet to minimize ground time and maximize air time.

No one likes a middle seat. So we got rid of it.

Passengers love E-Jets because there are no middle seats. Everyone sits by a window or on the aisle.

Airlines appreciate E-Jets for their configuration flexibility. Seating versatility makes E-Jets compatible for a range of business applications. Low-cost carriers value high-density, single-class seating to minimize unit costs. Regional and mainline airlines can configure their E-Jets with segregated, premium cabins and variable-pitch arrangements.

Full-service galleys, dedicated lavatories, spacious wardrobes, and cabin dividers ensure E-Jets deliver a consistent, quality experience for First and Business Class passengers across an airline's network.

No matter where you sit, E-Jets set the standard for comfort among aircraft in their class.

Plenty of room down below

A double-bubble fuselage not only maximizes passenger space in the cabin, it also increases under floor volume to carry checked baggage and revenue-generating cargo.

E-Jets have forward and aft Class C cargo compartments. The holds have cockpit-monitored smoke detection and fire extinguishing systems.

The floor surface has a slippery finish to make manual baggage loading and unloading easier.

Welcome aboard a space ship

E-Jets are designed from a double-bubble fuselage concept, a shape derived from vertically overlapping two ovals to produce a four-abreast cross section.

The widest point of the upper oval, which forms the main cabin, is at elbow level when passengers are seated. This maximizes personal space and allows the installation of wider seats and a wider aisle compared to most larger jets. The width of the lower oval is greatest near the cabin floor which boosts baggage and cargo capacity.

Adding to the sense of spaciousness is a two meter high cabin, near-vertical sidewalls and large eye-level windows, almost 30% larger than those on other aircraft, that let in lots of natural light. What's more, under seat areas are free of support railings so that passengers can stretch out in greater comfort.

Get wired

Operators are equipping their E-Jets with individual seat-back monitors and complete audio and video-on-demand systems. The aircraft are also flying with satellite radio and television and WiFi.  The wireless architecture avoids the use of traditional hardware boxes at each seat so that precious legroom is never compromised.

E-Jets can be an office in the sky with in-seat electric power ports and USB outlets. As airlines fly E-Jets on longer sectors, in-flight connectivity becomes a competitive necessity and a potential source of revenue.

Clean and Quiet

E-Jets comply with ICAO Annex 16 Chapter IV noise restrictions mandated in 2006.

Together with our partners, we have incorporated new sound-absorbing materials, produced lighter, quieter systems, and improved engine nacelle acoustics. Embraer teams continually work to improve aircraft operational procedures to ensure uncompromised performance at noise-sensitive airports.

General Electric's CF34 engine is designed to be more efficient – CO, UHC, NOx and smoke emission margins range from 26% to an impressive 98% below ICAO Annex 16 (Volume II) CAEP/6 limits for the E170/E175 and from 9% to 77% for the E190/E195.
