M.Broadbent - Second generation /Commercial/
The larger 73-inch fan diameter on the Embraer E190-E2’s Pratt & Whitney PW1900G geared turbofans is apparent in this shot of the first customer jet, Wideroe's LN-WEA (c/n 190200), pictured following its arrival in Bergen.
Static test rigs were used to complete 45,000 hours of ground tests of electrical, hydraulic and environmental systems, avionics and flight controls.
Among structural differences between the first and second-generation E-Jets is a new trailing arm architecture for the main landing gear, which Embraer says is less susceptible to shimming and corrosion.
With the E190-E2 delivered, Embraer now turns to completing the flight testing and certifying the larger E195-E2, targeted for the first half of 2019.
