The E-Jet is a narrow-body, twin-engine, medium-ranged passenger jet airliner designed, developed, and produced by the Brazilian concern of Embraer. The series saw a first-flight recorded on February 19th, 2002 and official introduction occurred on March 17th, 2004 through LOT Polish Airlines. Since then, the E-Jet family of airliners has encountered relative success in a crowded narrow-body airliner market with over 1,400 examples produced since 2001 and over 140 more airframes currently (2018) on order.

Its design is conventional as airliner "twins" go: the tubular fuselage makes up all of the aircraft's length. The pilots are seated aft of the downward sloping nosecone in a side-by-side arrangement with excellent forward visibility. The sides of the fuselage are lined with rounded windows for the passenger compartment. The wing mainplanes are seated low to either side of the fuselage and each carries an underslung turbofan engine nacelle. The empennage tapers to the rear and is capped by a single, high-reaching vertical fin and low-set, upward-canted horizontal planes. For ground-running, the aircraft has been given a traditional tricycle arrangement made up of two main legs and a nose leg.

There are four major variants in the E-Jet family line: the E170, E175, E190, and E195.

The E170 is also known as the EMB 170-100 and features seating for 60 to 78 passengers depending on configuration. Power is from 2 x GE CF34-8E turbofan engines of 14,200lb thrust each. Range is out to 4,000 kilometers. Dimensions include a length of 98 feet, a wingspan of 85.3 feet, and a height of 9.3 feet.

The E175 (EMB 175-200) is the follow-up, "stretched" to the E170 and seats between 64 and 88 passengers. The engines remain the same as the E170 (including thrust figures) but its overall length varies slightly with a value of 103.10 feet. Range is increased slightly out to 4,075 kilometers.

The E175SC is a relatively new addition to the E170 line-up. It was announced in late-2017 under the "Special Configuration" descriptor and is set to feature the seating arrangements available to the E170 model with utilization of the E175 airframe (and all the benefits of operating the stretched, longer-ranged fuselage).

The E190 (EMB 190-100) is another stretched variant but dimensionally larger when compared to the E170 and E175 models. Seating is for 88 to 114 passengers and power is from 2 x GE CF34-10E turbofan engines of 20,000lb thrust. Dimensions equal a length of 118.10 feet, a wingspan of 94.2 feet, and a height of 34.6 feet. Range is out to 4,540 kilometers.

The E195 (EMB 195-200) is the other stretched E190 form, seating between 88 and 124 passengers. The same engines as the E190 are in play but range is increased to 4,260 kilometers. Length is slightly increased as well to 126.9 feet while the E195 shares the wingspan of height of its E190 sister.

The business jet alternative to the civilian airliner of the E-Jet series is the "Lineage 1000". This model will sport seating for nineteen in the expected VIP trim. At least two production-quality airframes were ready as of 2008.

Of the four major variants, the E190 has proven the definitive market form with 549 units delivered and 43 currently on order as of July 2018. The E175 is a close second with 511 airframes delivered and 92 currently on order. The E195 represents the smallest sales figures of the four with 164 aircraft delivered and five on order. The E170 has 190 airframes in active service with a single example on order.

The jets are used throughout the world across various civilian markets.

The E-Jet E2, detailed elsewhere on this site, is a further development of the E-Jet family series.
