    The latest regional jet iteration from Embraer officially rolled out for the first time yesterday. The Embraer E195 E2 was towed out of the hangar at a ceremony attended by Embraer employees and workers. The E195 E2 is powered by a pair to Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engines and the aircraft is scheduled to enter service in Q2 of 2019. The aircraft that rolled out yesterday is the first of two that will flight test. The first flight is anticipated to take place in the first half of this year ahead of the previously expected second half of 2017.

    Embraer announced recently that Germany-based charter operator Air Hamburg is the launch customer for the new Legacy 650E. Air Hamburg will expand its Embraer business jet fleet with an additional order for three new Legacy 650E. The contract has a value of USD 77.7 million, based on current list prices, and will be included in the Company’s 2017 second-quarter backlog. The aircraft fleet delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of this year. The agreement was announced on the opening day of the 17th European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland.“We are very pleased with this new order from Air Hamburg, which will further propel their growth through exceptional operational costs and a superior customer experience with the Legacy 650E’s unique three-zone cabin and abundance of amenities,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Legacy 650E’s unmatched value proposition results in the productivity and efficiency sought by global charter operators and corporate flight departments.”

    Embraer has witnessed a growing interest in the Legacy 650E by charter operators. As one of Europe’s largest business jet service providers, Air Hamburg added one Legacy 500 as well as one Phenom 300 to their fleet, earlier this year, totaling 11 Embraer aircraft, with eight Legacy 600/650, one Legacy 500 and two Phenom 300.“The Legacy 650E is an obvious choice, considering the unparalleled experience that our current fleet of Legacy 600/650 already provides our customers on their flights to destinations throughout Europe, Russia, and the Middle East,” said Simon Ebert, Partner, Air Hamburg. “The new version of this proven platform best serves our growth plan by continuing to offer a premium charter service with the latest technologies onboard one of the industry’s most comfortable and reliable business jets.”

    Embraer is displaying the E195-E2 at this year's Paris Air Show...and they are making it stand out among the crowd of aircraft on the static display. The 'Profit Hunter' aircraft has had a special eagle motif added to the front perhaps to draw people's attention more to the next gen jet.

    According to the latest Market Outlook, Embraer projects a steady market demand for 6,400 new jets in the 70-130+ seat capacity category (2,280 units in the 70-90 seat segment and 4,120 units in the 90-130+ seat segment), worth USD 300 billion, by 2036. The 70-130+ seat jet world fleet-in-service will increase from 2,700 aircraft in 2016 to 6,710 by 2036, the fastest growing segment among all aircraft seat capacities. Market growth will drive 63% of total demand and the remaining 37% will be delivered to replace ageing aircraft.

    Tamarack says it plans to offer its active winglets for the Embraer Phenom 100. They suggest that the winglets would aid in the Phenom 100's 'hot and high' performance, allow for more payload and an increase of range.
