The Embraer ERJ family (for Embraer Regional Jet, model names EMB-135, EMB-140 and EMB-145) are regional jets produced by Brazilian aerospace company Embraer. The EMB145 was launched in 1989 as a turbofan-powered stretch of the EMB 120 Brasilia turboprop. It first flew on August 11, 1995 and it received its type certificate on December 10, 1996. The ERJ145 was introduced on April 6, 1997 and the shortened ERJ135 and ERJ140 were introduced in 1999.
Keeping the three-abreast seating of the Brasilia, the twinjet has a new swept wing and is powered by two rear-fuselage-mounted AE3007 turbofans for a range up to 2,000 nmi (3,700 km). The series includes the ERJ135 (37 passengers), ERJ140 (44 passengers), and ERJ145 (50 passengers), as well as the Legacy 600 business jet and the R-99 family of military aircraft. The family’s primary competition came from the similarly sized Bombardier CRJ100/200 regional jets. Production ended in 2020 after 1,231 were built.
