The two red handles are for the parking brake. Not sure about the other lever. Check the other cockpits from Embraer to see.

I don't think the two red handles are for the parking brake - that's the yellow & black stick right next to the Captains seat. Which makes sense, that it's set to park given that the aircraft is sitting on the ground.

I guarentee you that the black and yellow handle is the parking brake. The other two are probably the elevator and aileron disconnect handles, that separate the captain/FO controls incase one side gets stuck.

You mean like a brake release for the Aileron & Elevator.

The black/yellow lever is the parking break and the red handles are to disconnect the ailerons and/or elevators. These disconnect handles are in the front of the ERJ145 console and the parking lever is in the same place...

HAWK21M: You mean like a brake release for the Aileron & Elevator.

Not really. I can only speak for the ERJ-145 as that is what I fly, but I imagine the system is very similar. The control yokes are connected by a torque tube under the floor. The torque tube is what moves the cables. There are two sets of cables that go to the control surfaces. They take different routes in order to get there. Let's say that one of the cables becomes locked up for some reason, by pulling the red handle for the affected flight control, you break the connection between the left and right side of the torque tube, meaning that one of the pilots still has the ability to move the flight control (the two cables are connected on opposite sides of the torque tube), while the other one will still be stuck. It has no use as a gust lock, if that's what you're thinking it might do. ie. these handles would only ever be pulled in an emergency flight control malfunction situation. Hope this helps

When the aileron and elevator disconnect is pulled it does isolate the right and left control surface. The captain will only have control of the left side control surfaces and the F/O only has control of the right side control surfaces.
