Embraer ERJ-135 (Air Charters Europe)
Number in the fleet
|Luggage capacity: 12,8 mÂ³|
Renowned for its durability and high dispatch rate, the ERJ-135 transports up to 30 passengers in a well-appointed, largest-in-class, three-zone cabin that is also one of the quietest. Yet operating costs are equivalent to those of many two-cabin aircraft. Embraer's philosophy of thinking differently has created an aircraft with wide-ranging appeal – and one that makes for an intelligent choice for fast, reliable and comfortable travel anywhere in the world.
Durable, reliable and built specifically for lower demand markets, the ERJ135 delivers high performance, high speed and excellent range capacity to open new routes.
The aircraft shares 98% parts and systems commonality, as well as crew rating, with the other members of the ERJ-135 / 140 / 145 family. The aircraft has a circular cross section fuselage, rear mounted high by-pass ratio engines, low mounted swept wings and a T-tailplane. The wings are of two spar wing design with a third spar to support the landing gear. The wing leading edges are made of aluminium.
The cockpit is fitted with an all-glass Honeywell Primus 1000 digital avionics suite with dual digital air data computers, dual attitude, heading and reference system (AHRS), a traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS) and a ground proximity warning system (GPWS).
The aircraft has two rear-mounted Rolls-Royce engines mounted on pylons, supplied by Sonaca of Belgium. International Nacelle Systems supplies the engine nacelles and the optional clamshell thrust reversers. The engines are fitted with full authority digital engine control and the engine air intakes are fitted with an engine bleed air anti-icing system.
