Hi all

Just a query about Embraer aircraft and their types.

I've noticed in many publications a difference in the way the Embraer 135, 145 etc are printed. eg EMB 145 and ERJ 145. What is the correct way of describing the 135 and 145 and is it the same for the 170 and 190 series?

Also I notice their are different two letter 'codes' after the type eg 135ER, 145EP, 145EU, 145LR and 145MP 170-100SE, ST, SU and LR. 190IGW.

Do these letters actually stand for something? if so, what? Is their a visual difference in each case?

Many thanks

Len Dutton

Either works. The aircraft data tag say EMB-135/145...., but marketing uses ERJ-135/145. The TCDS for the aircraft use EMB-, so I guess in the legal terms it's EMB-..!! Now the Embraer 170/190 was marketed NOT as an ERJ and Embraer made that very clear from the start. The funny part... its TCDS calls it the ERJ-170, ERJ-190...!!!

As for your other question, there are 'really' only two models for both the 135/145. That is the ER and LR. The only difference is the LR offers a wet center wing where the ER is dry. As for the other model break downs that has to do with aircraft weight issues. In order to meet the requirments of some European countries gross landing weights were changed and these sub models were offered. There is NO physical difference..!! Now the EMB-145XR is a whole different animal. It's closer to the EMB-135BJ... the Legacy.

Type Certificate Data Sheet. Google 'TCDS' and it will come up. It's loaded with all kinds of official information about the planes and models.

Some of those models are so close that a few years ago we did a few planes for CHQ. We just drilled off the old data tag, riveted on a new one... replaced a few pages in the AOM and we converted the plane from an MP to an LR
