The E-Jets E2 program reinforces Embraer's commitment to continuously invest in the company's line of commercial jets and to maintain leadership in the 70 to 130-seat aircraft segment. Embraer's E-Jets E2s have Pratt & Whitney PurePowerTM Geared Turbofan high by-pass ratio engines (PW1700G on the E175-E2, PW1900G on the E190-E2 and E195-E2). Combined with new aerodynamically advanced wings, full fly-by-wire flight controls, and improvements to other systems, the E2s will deliver significant reductions in fuel burn, maintenance costs, emissions, and external noise.
