Embraer Brasilia 120


This aircraft is a pressurized twin engine turboprop aircraft, capable of carrying 28 (rear galley & toilet) or 30 (forward galley & toilet) passengers with two flight crew and one cabin attendant.

we will fly on this a/c type soon. what is the cargo capacity like?

What do you mean? I fly on them as a passenger all the time. Like most of the "little guys," anything larger than a briefcase or laptop will have to go in the hold. The hold seems to be large enough to hold the carry-on items that couldn't be carried on as well as the regular checked baggage. At least, mine has always showed up. Most of the flights I've taken on these "old turkeys," as another forum member called them once, have been between 15-45 minutes, so it wasn't a major inconvenience.

For that matter, most of the 2+ hour flights I endure on RJs, with no IFE, minimal beverage service, and smaller seats, are without my "carry-on" baggage, too, since the reduced-size overheads on them don't lend themselves to roll-aboards, either. It's never really been a big deal to me.

Quoting Mirrodie (Thread starter):

Either configuration will accomodate 30 seats no problem. Cargo-wise, there is plenty of room for baggage in the back (1,100 lbs., if I remember correctly.)



Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

Yep, both configurations have 30 seats. If they have the cargo mod, they can accomidate 1543 pounds of luggage in the hold, otherwise 1213 pounds.

The large bin Brasilias can accomodate two standard 22" roller bags, the small ones can accomodate one 22" Stealth bag if it's not bulging at all.

Under the seat infront of you you can easily fit a standard laptop case, or a standard pilot kit case, sideways under "B" seats, lengthwise under "C" seats or "A" seats. Sometimes you'll have to take off the seat cushion to fit the kit between the seats to get to the floor.

I only have a little experience fitting stuff in there.  bigthumbsup

As a straight freighter they hold about as much as a DC-3.

They also have thin skins.

I know one cargo carrier up here has an ops rule you will not apporach the rear door with a forklift-belt loader only. Which is a big change from their DC-6 and C-46 operation where they can just fork a pallet on the airplane.

In my mind this looses a lot of efficency, especially when you consider the price of a DC-3 these days.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
