Beautiful Video – Flying the Embraer 190

Youtube user “wineandflyguy” posted this nice Embraer 190 tribute video. It was filmed on jetBlue N296JB and features much in-flight cockpit footage, such as the HUD, FMC and PFDs.

The E-190/195 family is a larger stretch of the E-170/175 family fitted with a new, larger wing, larger horizontal stabilizer and a new engine, the GE CF34-10E. These aircraft compete with the Bombardier CRJ-1000. In addition, being in the 100-seat range, it competes with the Boeing 717-200, and 737-500/-600 the Airbus A318, and the upcoming Bombardier CSeries.

The first flight of the E-190 was in March 12, 2004. The launch customer of the E-190 was New York-based low-cost carrier JetBlue with 100 orders and 100 options.
