In August 11th, 1995, exactly 10 years ago, the ERJ took to the skies for the first of many successful times.

With over 900 jets delivered, more than 7 million accumulated logged hours, and safely transporting over 150 thousand passangers everyday around the globe, the ERJ has proven itself as more than a reliable aircraft, but also a very safe and excellent platform as well.


Today, the ERJ family comprises of the ERJ-145, -140, and -135. But there is also the Embraer Legacy, a business aircraft offered in two versions that is based on the ERJ-135.

On the military area, the EMB 145 AEW&C (Early Warning and Control), the P-99 (maritime patrol/Anti-Surface/Submarine warfare), the EMB 145 RS/AGS (Reconnaissance and Surveillance).

These variations are in service today with the Brazilian, Mexican, Greek (NATO) Air Forces. The Legacy is also in use with the Belgium ir Force for Official transport.

Embraer has 67 firm orders for the ERJ plus 228 option in their backlog.

Embraer recently inaugurated a new testing facility in the town of with a new 5km runway. They are currently in a re-forestation project in the new facility which is already well ahead of schedule.

Embraer also have an ERJ assembly facility in Harbin, China since 2003.

And today, Embraer announced that is close to reaching a deal with China Eastern Airlines for 5 more ERJs... one little nice birthday present!

And now that Embraer moves on with the E-Series, I wish them the best and hope to see them expanding even more!

Congratulations to everyone at Embraer for the excellent job done!!!

Best regards,
PPVRA

PS: For some reason, I cannot post any pictures today. I'll try to post in a reply.

Congrats to Embraer. I've loved my flights on the E-135 (for some reason the only version I've flown).

I hope that they break 1,000! (Does anyone have the latest delivered? I see 67 on backlog and 228 options from the originating post.)

I'm surprised that more haven't been sold to Chinese airlines...

I hope ten years from now we'll have already celibrated 1,000 E-jet deliveries!

CZ has 6 ERJs and Sichuan Airlines has 5. But over all I agree, 11 planes for China is almost nothing.

Let's hope they get some more ERJs flying over there, would be nice.

Cheers,

Why aren´t new order coming in for the E-145 family?
Will Embraer put focus on the E-jets now and leave the 145family?

The E-jets family have alredy proven to be a sucess, and B6 will the favor of showing it aroudnso more carriers buys them.
Are we seeing the end of 50seats Rj´s???

I think Vector can answer this better than I can, but I know that most of the jets delivered to China were built there. That's about 11 or 12 that have been delivered, the 5+5 ones he mentioned above should go into the firm/option orders log for Chinese carriers (well, maybe except the one that will be delivered this month). The plant is well underused, but Embraer predicts a huge growth in the market (something like 400+ planes).

They won't "leave" the ERJ. They have all the other variations that I described above to help cover lower sales.

There are a lot of 50 seater RJ's in the USA for example, really a lot of them, so it seems that the market kinda got enough of them for now, if not for a while.

But that's another reason Embraer entered China. Huge market, AFAIK they have only some 60 RJ's in ops in all, and a 400+ RJ expantion market (if they develop the market).

And don't forget Latin America, we've seen a few orders from Mexico to Colombia.

Cheers,
PPVRA

Although I no longer fly one for a living, I still own and continue to buy stock in Embraer. I think the new 170/190 series of aircraft are the wave of the future for narrow body aircraft in the U.S. and abroad. I see orders on the horizon from NWA, DAL, CAL and maybe down the road even AA. We're talking hundreds of 100 seat planes over the next 5 years and that's only the beginning.

Go EMB!!!

No, just a saturated market. While I still wonder why China hasn't bought more, the US market for 50 seaters is pretty much done. In fact, I expect there to be a net decrease in 50 seat RJ's in the USA over the next decade.

Now the E-jets are a different story:
E-170 Perfect for US airlines and their scope clauses
E-175, with India having different landing fees for < 80 seats, this seems like the perfect jet for that growing market.
E-190 A great jet for the US eastern seaboard.
E-195 Seems destined to be a European LCC money maker.

Now, I'm not saying that each sub type might not sell in other regions; what I am noting is that there are *large* untapped niches for each member of the E-jet family.

I can't wait to fly on an E-jet.
