For the first time, an Embraer from the largest Brazilian aircraft buyer E2 takes off

EXCLUSIVE – The first aircraft of Embraer’s future largest E2 jet operator, Canadian Porter Airlines, has already made its maiden flight and will be delivered soon.

As we previously announced, the aircraft entered production in May and will be delivered in the second half of this year. It is the first of 80 E195-E2 jets produced in São José dos Campos. And it was in the inner city of São Paulo that the jet was spotted by the observer and collaborator Felipe Carneiro, as the plane returned from its maiden flight over the Paraíba Valley.

Porter is not only the biggest buyer of E2 jets, but also the main one, because it is a Canadian company, which currently only operates planes from Canada and which had ordered the competitor of Embraer, the Airbus A220 (formerly Bombardier CSeries) manufactured in the North. American country.

The setback for “home owners” has been one of Embraer’s great recent strengths, also due to the fact that it opens up a new business model for the company, which will begin operating from the Toronto Bishop Airport for the first time.

Fascinated by airplanes since 1999, he graduated in aeronautics while studying at Cal State Long Beach and Western Michigan University. He is currently editor-in-chief at AEROIN, airline pilot, member of AOPA, with experience at Avianca Brasil. #GoBroncos #GoBeach #2A
