The Brazilian producer has produced greater than 1,500 E-Jets altogether, with plane from the next-generation E2 household now rolling off the manufacturing line. The smallest E-Jets are the E170 and E175 fashions, however how precisely do these planes differ?

Dimensional variations

Let’s begin by taking a look at how the E170 and E175 examine and distinction on the subject of their efficiency and specs. The E170, which was the primary variant from the E-Jet household to enter service (with LOT Polish Airways in 2004), clocks in at 29.90 meters lengthy.


In the meantime, the 31.67-meter lengthy E175 entered service with Air Canada in 2005.

Each the E170 and the E175 are powered by Normal Electrical‘s CF34-8E engines. These turbofans, which every produce 14,200 lbf (63 kN) of thrust, may also be discovered on the Bombardier CRJ household of regional jets, in addition to China’s COMAC ARJ21.

These engines work in tandem to allow each the E170 and E175 to cruise at Mach 0.75 (430 knots / 797 km/h). In addition they present each fashions with a most velocity of Mach 0.82 (470 knots / 871 km/h). The designs share a service ceiling of 41,000 toes.

In relation to vary, there’s little to separate the E170 and E175. The latter, bigger design simply has the sting, and might fly for as much as 2,200nmi (4,074 km). Nonetheless, the smaller E170 pushes it very shut, with a spread of two,150nmi (3,982 km). However how have they offered?

Contrasting orders and deliveries

We have now established that there’s little to separate the E170 and E175 when it comes to their dimensions and efficiency. Nonetheless, there’s a larger hole on the subject of how nicely every of those twin-engine regional jet designs has carried out in a industrial sense.

As of Q2 this yr, Embraer’s outcomes present that it has delivered simply 191 E170s, with no excellent orders. In the meantime, the E175 is the preferred variant in your entire E-Jet household, with 675 examples having already been delivered.
