I wondered whether the Embraer controls had been inspired by the Concorde's. Are the button controls similarly placed?
Also are these commands electrical? On all models? Thanks.

2 planes I have flown, the HS-125 Hawker bizjet and AC-690 Rockwell Turbo Commander, also have this yoke configuration. I'm sure there are others.

The Trident had the same rams horn yoke too, i suppose you could say apart from the E190 family they were really a British thing.

It's a bit more challenging in crosswind landing situations when most would argue that a traditional yoke is easier to manage.
