S.Rivas - Efficiency Takes Shape /Commercial/
Each of the new E-Jet variants has a new, higher aspect ratio wing, which is more aerodynamically efficient and tailored to the size of the aircraft.
The initial E190-E2 on the assembly line; its first flight is scheduled for 2016.
UK firm PriestmanGoode has been involved in the cabin that includes 18.3 inch-wide seats in economy, with two seats on either side of the aisle.
The E190-E2 is the first variant in the E-Jets E2 family, which has now received 267 firm orders plus 373 options.
Embraer has commonality with the current E-Jets as a major focus in the E2 programme.
