History

Launched in 1989 as a stretched and jet-engined version of the EMB 120 Brasilia. However by 1990 Embraer was studying a modified design which had less commonality with the Brasilia because wind-tunnel testing had revealed that it did not meet design objectives, such as a 2500km range. A modified design was produced, but this would have needed an unusually high undercarriage.

In late 1991 the Embraer ERJ 145 design was frozen, now with rear mounted engines. It did keep some features from the Brasilia, such as the three abreast seating (2+1).

The first flight was on August 11th 1995, with the first delivery in December 1996 to Expressjet, the regional division of Continental Airlines. Continental is by far the largest operator, with 221 of the 634 ERJ 145 in service. The second largest operator is American Eagle, with 107 ERJ 145 aircraft.

Models

Civilian Models:

  • ERJ 145ER - The Standard Version
  • ERJ 145LR - Long Range
  • ERJ 145XR - Extra Long Range

The Brazilian military operates the EMB-145 under the designation C-99A. It also operates the R-99 models A and B, which are both derived from the EMB-145. (Note: Embraer retains the "EMB-" prefix when referring to its military models.)

The Lockheed Martin Aerial Common Sensor platform, based on the EMB-145 airframe, will see service with the United States Army and Navy.
