...and the ERJ looks so sexy head-on. The 145 has been a springboard to bigger and better things for both Embraer and, more generally, for Brazil. The company is one of Latin America's best corporate success stories IMHO. I look forward to Embraer's future.

Kudos to my favorite RJ! I'm pleased to say I've been on a few of those 8.5 million cycles...

Congratulations to the people of Embraer - you make a wonderful aircraft! Out of curiosity, what is the expected service life of an ERJ145 in hours and/or cycles?

Anyone knows? I've tried to find the info but couldn't. . . I'm tempted to say 80,000 cycles, but I don't know for sure. No idea on how many hours.

Cheers

Wow, that's a buncha miles they've flown.
Think how many miles they've covered in ten million hours. Sheesh!

I prefer larger aircraft when possible, yet the IAH-DAL flights on ExpressJet are actually some of my favorites... I have two coming up next week!

I'm taking a ERJ 145 on Nov 25 from IAH to FRS. The very last CO flight on this route. I'll post a trip report upon my return.

I've flown thousands of miles and I can tell you it's a lot safer than crossing the street!
