E190-E2 makes its international debut
Less than 45 days after its inaugural flight, the first E190-E2 prototype by Embraer was recently at the Farnborough Airshow for its international debut. The first E190-E2 prototype has now racked up a total of 59 hours from the 23 flights performed since the first flight in May this year. In addition to the flight test campaign, the programme has also accumulated 18,000 hours of tests on rigs and in the iron bird, as well as many hours of simulation on the virtual aircraft. After the show, the aircraft returned to Brazil to continue the certification campaign. Another important and recent programme milestone was accomplished with the successful maiden flight of the second E190-E2 prototype. The aircraft flew for 2 hours and 55 minutes and will now join the flight test and certification program. The E190-E2 is scheduled to enter into service during the first half of 2018.
