Embraer ERJ-190

Embraer ERJ-190 (the designation of the Brazilian company now has this designation) is a medium-haul passenger aircraft for local airlines, developed by the Brazilian company Embraer. In the market, they compete with the aircraft Boeing 717-200, Boeing 737-600, an Airbus A318, Airbus A319. The aircraft is a new development of Embraer in the class with increased passenger capacity compared to ERJ 135/140/145 aircraft. The companies involved in the development of the aircraft are General Electric (CF34-10E turbofan engines), Hamilton Sundstrand (tail development), Honeywell (Primus Epic avionics), Kawasaki, Latecoere, Liebherr, Gamesa, Sonaca (various parts of the fuselage), Parker Hannifin (hydrodynamics and fuel system). Since 1999, the company has been consistently developing ERJ 170 and ERJ 190 models. The difference between the models is not only in small technical differences but also in incapacity. Thus, Embraer swung to 60% of the regional aircraft market.

Work on the aircraft began in 1998. These aircraft were designated ERJ 190-100 and ERJ-190-200. The aircraft was first presented on February 11, 1999, and shown in June 1999 at the Paris Air Show. The first flight took place on March 12, 2004. Serial production of the ERJ 190-100 began in mid-2004, and the ERJ 190-200 at the end of 2004. The certificate was received in 2005. The aircraft is available in two main versions: ERJ-190-100 for 98 passengers and ERJ-190-200 for 108 passengers.

The Embraer 190 is equipped with the more advanced CF34-10Es engine, which has much in common with the latest CFM56 engine. For the first time, aircraft of this category have remote control technology for rudders using electric drives.
