Quoting IAD51FL (Thread starter): about how many 145XR's could Embraer put out in 90 days? And how long does it take to paint a aircraft such as the 145XR?
As for painting.... it averages 7-10 days. The factory pre-paints the planes and they are assembled fully painted. Production time I'm not too sure on, but the XR is no more special then a standard -145 for production time. My guess would be 14 days or so.....but I'll get you an answer direct from the boys that built it. The XR is also really not in production any more. Expressjet was the only airline to order them and they have taken delivery of all orders
