Commercial Aircraft E175
Range The Advanced Range (AR) version of the E175 can carry a full load of passengers up to 2,200 nm (4,074 km). See how far the E175 flies by choosing a city near you. Ranges are indicative only, are based on ISA temperatures, zero winds, and maximum passengers in standard, single-class configuration and are not to be used for flight planning or dispatch. Economics E-Jets maintenance plan is developed to fit operators’ needs, emphasizing simplified procedures and longer check intervals to help keep costs low. The maintenance plan is an important part of an airline’s successful operation, so E-Jets maintenance plan have the commitment of optimize the maintenance process, reducing maintenance costs and improving the overall reliability and availability of the aircraft. A high degree of spare parts commonality among the E-Jets family (up to 86%) delivers cost savings right to the bottom line. Inventories are reduced, maintenance procedures streamlined, and crew training and transition expenses are minimized. With cross crew qualification, differences training, differences checking and recurrent training are some of the simplest in the industry and use the latest computer-based training and simulator tools. The FAA grades E-Jet training in each of these categories at level A. There are minimal training differences instruction required for maintenance personnel and flight attendants and none for flight dispatchers or operations engineers. With the benefits of a common family, airline schedulers and crew planners will find last-minute equipment changes easier to accommodate. Since they are designed for fast, efficient, simultaneous, multi-point ground servicing thanks to four main cabin doors and two easily accessible cargo holds, E-Jets can turnaround in as few as 15 minutes. Less time on the ground means greater productivity and higher daily utilization, which helps to keep seat mile/kilometer costs low. Efficiency An optimized design means that E-Jets are built with the lowest possible aircraft operating empty weight in order to carry the highest revenue-generating payload. Since fuel consumption is proportional to aircraft weight, a lighter airplane translates directly into cost savings that go right to the bottom line. A streamlined maintenance program, a high degree of parts commonality among the family and fast turnaround times increase overall utilization and efficiency while decreasing unit costs. Engineering E-Jets have a central brain called the CMC - the central maintenance computer. All major E-Jet systems have an interface with the CMC that collects fault reports, stores maintenance messages and assists troubleshooting. The information can be accessed from the cockpit and from four LAN ports on the aircraft via a laptop computer for fast downloading and analysis. E-Jets incorporate fly-by-wire technology that helps to reduce pilot workload, improves aircraft performance, simplifies systems architecture and minimizes weight and maintenance. Fly-by-wire replaces manual operation of traditional heavy mechanical & hydro-mechanical flight controls and their associated networks of cables, cranks and pulleys, with an electronic interface. Pilot commands are converted to electronic signals which are processed by an on-board computer that regulates the movements of actuators at each control surface. Automatic structural load protection, compensation for engine thrust asymmetry and configuration changes, and highly reliable primary flight in the pitch, roll and yaw axes work in concert to provide flight crews with aircraft that are uncomplicated to handle yet exceptionally responsive to pilot commands. E-Jets incorporate a human-centered design approach emphasizing physical and cognitive requirements and abilities. The ergonomic placement of instruments and controls in a dark and quiet environment creates unsurpassed situational awareness that reduces pilot workload. The Honeywell Primus Epic digital avionics suite has five large-format, 8 x 10-inch, active matrix liquid crystal displays. The "smart" flat panels present information in a clean, simplified arrangement. There is a cursor control device on the console, similar to what you would find on a laptop computer, to simplify data input and movement between screens. PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAYS (PFD) are used to show: Attitude Direction Indicator (ADI) airspeed and altitude indications Horizon Situation Indicator (HSI) flight modes (flight director & auto-throttle) NAV and/or COM radio frequencies MULTI-FUNCTION DISPLAYS (MFD) have these features: map or plan navigation format & various synoptic formats menu softkey that selects a format and controls various systems TCAS and weather radar functions maintenance & systems configuration data redundancy to display both PFD and EICAS formats ENGINE INDICATON & CREW ALERTING SYSTEM (EICAS) is used to monitor: system indications engine & APU information cabin pressurization information fuel information flap/speed brake settings landing gear trim positions Airlines can choose to configure their E-Jet flight decks with heads up displays (HUD). E-Jets were the first commercial aircraft to have dual HUD. The HUD feature displays critical flight information on a transparent glass panel positioned between the pilot and windshield. In landing situations with restricted approach visibility, HUD provides an extra margin of safety by allowing pilots to keep their eyes on the runway rather than continuously looking down at instrument panels. Reliability is the cornerstone of scheduled airline operations. That's why Embraer developed AHeAD-PRO, an innovative aircraft health, analysis and diagnostic system available on every E-Jet. AHeAd-PRO is a computational, web-based platform that allows airlines to continuously monitor the performance of an E-Jet while in flight. It regularly transmits fault identification data for analysis by ground personnel so they can plan maintenance remedies at a downline station. In-flight fault messages are received from the EICAS and central maintenance computer and transmitted via the ACARS network. Using links to Embraer's digital technical publications, errors are identified, correlated, and logged. AHeAd-PRO allows airline maintenance teams to continually monitor each E-Jet's operating history in the fleet to minimize ground time and maximize air time. Environment E-Jets comply with ICAO Annex 16 Chapter IV noise restrictions mandated in 2006. Together with our partners, we have incorporated new sound-absorbing materials, produced lighter, quieter systems, and improved engine nacelle acoustics. Embraer teams continually work to improve aircraft operational procedures to ensure uncompromised performance at noise-sensitive airports. General Electric's CF34 engine is designed to be more efficient – CO, UHC, NOx and smoke emission margins range from 26% to an impressive 98% below ICAO Annex 16 (Volume II) CAEP/6 limits for the E170/E175 and from 9% to 77% for the E190/E195.
