At the Farnborough International Airshow 2022 we were delighted to showcase our new-generation turboprop – an aircraft that is revolutionary in design, fully sustainable and offers passengers an unparalleled level of cabin comfort. Watch the video.
The shape of things to come. Embraer’s new-generation, turboprop airliner, ready to fly by next year.The new airliner turboprop airliner by Embraer, featuring rear-mounted engines for a much quieter and efficient travel.
To recap, Embraer first floated the idea of a new family of turboprop regional airliners back in 2017 in response to a growing demand for smaller, more efficient aircraft. By 2021, the concept had snowballed into a 75- to 90-seat airliner, with a cross-section similar to the E-Jet E2 and a set of distinctive rear-mounted engines.
Over a 250 nmi (460 km) sector, a 74-seat TPNG 70 would burn 5% less fuel than a 70-seat ATR-72 and 13% less than the 80-seat Dash 8-400; while the 90-seat TPNG would save 18% per seat compared with the ATR, and 25% compared with the Dash.Embraer forecasts a market for 2,260 turboprops in the two decades following 2022./wikipedia
