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 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.

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.

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'.
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.
