Embraer has taken delivery of the first two Geared Turbofan™ (GTF) PW1900G production engines for the E190-E2 aircraft. The engines were shipped to Embraer’s E2 final assembly line in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil, in late December, with plans to install the engines in February. The aircraft will enter into service with Widerøe Airlines (Widerøe), the largest regional airline in Scandinavia, in April. The PW1900G recently achieved type validation from Brazil’s Aviation Authority, the Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC). This validation acknowledges the Part 33 Type Certification previously granted by the FAA for the engine and permits operation of the engine in revenue service in Brazil, and is also a critical prerequisite for Part 25 Type Certification for the airplane.
