Posted 16 December 2016 · Add Comment

The company said the test programme is 'progressing right on schedule, both on the ground and in the air.'

In a statement the company said: “Static tests started on November 24 on a specially-built E2 that has the wings of an E190-E2 and the fuselage of an E195-E2. Since then, another full-scale prototype has been positioned at the Eugênio de Melo facility alongside the E2 that is used for static tests. This second aircraft, an E190-E2, is for fatigue testing that will begin in the first half of 2017. The test will simulate three times the number of flights in an aircraft’s typical life. In the air, the three E190-E2s that are flying have accumulated more than 300 flight hours.”
