By early November 2016 the three flight test aircraft had completed about 20% of the E190-E2 certification process; approximately 21,000 hours of testing using specialised static test rigs had also been completed.
E190-E2 PR-ZEY returning after its maiden flight, which lasted three hours and 20 minutes. Embraer is working towards a 2018 service entry for this first variant.
The E190-E2 is scheduled to enter service in 2018, followed by the E195-E2 in 2019 and the E175-E2 in 2021.
23 мая 2016г. в Сан-Жозе-дус-Кампусе (Бразилия) взлетел прототип самолета E190-E2. Новая машина открывает второе поколение региональных пассажирских авиалайнеров Embraer. Завершение сертификации и начало коммерческой эксплуатации новинки запланированы на середину 2018 г. Самолет сможет перевозить до 106 пассажиров в одноклассной компоновке или 97 в двухклассном варианте салона.
The four-man flight test crew took the first E-Jet E2 to a maximum altitude of 41,000ft during the initial test flight.

The E190-E2 was certified after a 2,000-flying hour test campaign.
The size of the E190-E2 PW1900G turbofans, with their 73in (1.854m) fan diameter, compared to the 56in (1.422m) diameter on the GE CF34-10s on the current E-Jets, is apparent from this photo of the aircraft taxying at Sao Jose dos Campos before its flight.
The E190-E2 is optimised for 97 to 114 seats, the E195-E2 for 120 to 146 seats and the E175-E2 for 80 to 90 seats.
Two of the three E190-E2s involved in the flight test campaign: these aircraft will be joined by a fourth prototype in early 2017.

The 73-inch (1,854 mm) fan diameter on the E190-E2’s Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1900G engines compared to the General Electric CF34s on the first-generation E-Jets is apparent here.

Embraer flew E190-E2 prototype PR-ZFU (c/n 19020002) to Changi for static display, where it was unmissable in an eye-catching Tiger paint scheme applied to the forward fuselage.
The 23,000lb (102kN) thrust PW1900G powers the E190-E2; the same engine will also power the E195-E2 while the 17,000lb (75kN) thrust PW1700G will be fitted to the E175-E2
The initial E190-E2 on the assembly line; its first flight is scheduled for 2016.
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.
Embraer handed over the initial customer E190-E2 to launch operator Wideroe on April 4, 2018.
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.

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.
Embraer now describes its E-Jets E2 range, which includes the E195-E2, pictured here on an early test flight, as crossover jets able to be used for different roles.
Early March saw Embraer present the first E195-E2, which at 41.5m long is the longest E-Jet E2.
The E195-E2 at the show was resplendent with an eagle painted across the nose, a reference to Embraer calling the E-Jet the ‘Profit Hunter'.
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.
Static test rigs were used to complete 45,000 hours of ground tests of electrical, hydraulic and environmental systems, avionics and flight controls.
29 марта 2017г. на аэродроме бразильской авиастроительной компании «Эмбраэр» в Сан-Жозе-дус-Кампусе начались летные испытания регионального пассажирского самолета нового поколения Embraer E195-E2. Первый полет длился 2 ч.
The E-Jet's E2 cockpits will feature four large display screens and 3D graphics to aid pilot situational awareness.

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.
Compared to the earlier E-Jet the overhead stowage bins have been enlarged and can accept the standard roll-on cabin bag, stowed wheels first.

With the E170 not being part of the upgrade, the E175-E2 will be the smallest new E-Jet.
Embraer has commonality with the current E-Jets as a major focus in the E2 programme.
The E190-E2 is the first variant in the E-Jets E2 family, which has now received 267 firm orders plus 373 options.
Leasing firm ILFC is one of the E-Jet E2's earliest customers.
Norwegian carrier Wideroe has been confirmed as the launch operator of the E195-E2 next spring.
