And if there's a ban on short-haul flights within Europe, then the turboprop market will take a major hit: https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/climate-crisis-flight-tax-ban-short-haul-europe-survey-a9393826.html Some countries within the EU are already discussing higher taxes for airlines in o...Jump to post
Hi, there Electric Aviation Group in the UK has proposed a new design for a 70-seat regional quad-engine, high wing, twin-tail hybrid turboprop. Range in the 800 nm, 1450 km. https://www.flightglobal.com/farnborough-2020/uk-developer-shows-off-70-seat-hybrid-as-it-rejects-smaller-designs/139370.arti...Jump to post
BTW, does the E-190/195 E2 series make the same noise as the A-220 ? They share the same engine structure, and they face the same technical hurdles (see post about thrust and ceiling limitations for both aircraft below). https://www.flightglobal.com/safety/operators-of-e190-e2s-to-limit-climb-thrust...Jump to post
After the Boeing-Embraer merge fell apart back in April, a scenario for a new turboprop JV between Embraer and Saab was suggested: "Merluzeau can also envision an Embraer-Saab tie up. The companies already partner on the Gripen fighter jet programme, and Saab could use a new turboprop for a mil...Jump to post
Hi, folks The French government has created a program to support a new regional aircraft to be delivered by 2030, within a $15 billion budget.

Another point to consider on the ATR forecast I mentionned is their # for the next 20 years: 3,000 turboprops total, and 630 on the 40-60 passenger range. That’s 200 planes a year... 80 a month... And only 32 per year... 3 units per month for the 40-60 seats planes. It doesn’t seem sustainable as fa...Jump to post
Point well taken, Maverick. Probably Boeing/Embraer won’t go beyond 76-80 pax on a new turboprop in order not to cannibalize the E2-175. Could it be a 50 pax bird, with a 70 pax stretch using improved engines and composite materials? Could A short 30 pax version be next using hybrid-electric engines...Jump to post
I was thinking more on the technological side of it instead of user's perception, though...
Say, if you have a E1-170 style cabin, improved wings, composite materials, hybrid-electric engines.
Embraer is quoted as saying this new design would be around by 2025-27, only 5-7 years from now...
Hi, folks The 50-90 turboprop market is stalled in 1980's technology and design (ATR, DHC, Ilyushin, to name a few).

Hi, there Boeing-Embraer launched the E-175E2 without a launch customer, hoping to sell the plane worldwide and maybe in the US (if the scope clause with the pilot unions is overthrown). Meanwhile, Mitsubishi launched its own version of a scope-compliant 76-seat jet, the M-100, while faced the same ...Jump to post
