Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer has recently achieved a significant step with its E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft receiving type certification from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). Singapore-based low-cost carrier Scoot plans to start operating nine of the type in 2024, according to Airport Technology.

The certification process entails a comprehensive evaluation of the aircraft’s design, performance, and safety features. The E190-E2 and E195-E2 had previously garnered approval from three major civil aviation authorities: the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (ANAC). The E190-E2 also has type certification in China.

“Certification of the E190-E2 and E195-E2 by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore marks a significant milestone for Scoot. It reinforces our commitment to operating a modern and fuel-efficient fleet and brings us a step nearer to offering more travel opportunities to our customers,” said Scoot’s CEO Leslie Thng in a press release.

“As the first Singaporean carrier to operate the E2s, we look forward to enhancing connectivity in Asia and the further development of Singapore as a hub for regional travel,” he continued.

The E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft are the culmination of Embraer’s extensive experience, built upon 20 million flight hours from the first generation of E-Jets. These new models blend state-of-the-art technology with the proven reliability and efficiency of their predecessors, according to the company. The first-generation E-Jets operate with over 80 airlines in 50 countries.

Building a Training Program

In a move to bolster training and operational readiness for the E2 aircraft, Embraer, in collaboration with CAE, a global leader in aviation training, announced the establishment of an E2 full flight simulator and pilot training program in Singapore. Scheduled to commence operations by the end of the year, the simulator is located at the Singapore-CAE Flight Training Center, which is housed within the SIA Training Center.
