Embraer 145 Jet Charter Information
The Embraer 145 charter jet is the flagship aircraft of the Brazilian aeronautics manufacturer’s commercial ERJ series. While it was originally intended to serve as a regional airliner in the commercial sector, it has also proven useful among private aviation passengers for things like:
- Executive transport
- College and pro sports teams
- VIPs and touring bands with entourages
A maximum range of 900 nautical miles while fully loaded allows the Embraer 145 to fly from New York City to Miami nonstop without a fuel stop. The 145LR (Long Range variant) flies up to 1,550 nm nonstop, while the 145XR (Extra Range) can go up to 2,000 nm, giving it even further reach. A pair of Rolls-Royce AE3007 turbofan engines power this aircraft, giving it an outstanding cruising speed of 515 mph. This is a benefit for those travelling on tight schedules.
The Embraer 145, which entered service in 1996, is configured to seat up to 50 passengers. This is perfect for group charter flights to important business summits and corporate functions. With its high performance capabilities and large passenger capacity, the Embraer 145 enables corporate leaders to manage a truly global business.
Formally known as the Embraer ERJ 145, this charter airliner is the largest member in the ERJ series, which includes:
- ERJ 135 (37 passengers)
- ERJ 140 (44 passengers)
- Embraer Legacy business jet
The latter aircraft is a heavy jet based on the Embraer 145’s airframe. It features a much lower seating density, as well as a more refined cabin environment. It’s ideal for transporting CEOs, families and other small groups of travellers in the utmost comfort.
The Power to Perform
In addition to providing fast cruising speeds, the Embraer 145 performs well in other categories as well. It requires just 20 minutes to climb to 35,000 feet, and it enjoys a maximum service ceiling of 37,000 feet. Furthermore, it requires just 6,070 feet for takeoffs and 4,593 feet for landings.
The cabin interior of the Embraer 145 optimizes space well for a narrow-body, single-aisle jet, providing three-abreast (2+1) seating. Large windows provide plenty of ambient light, and when you combine the overhead bins, under-seat capacity and baggage compartment, there’s 517 cubic feet of storage. The aircraft also features a forward galley and fully enclosed aft lavatory.
Overall, the cabin measures:
- 6 feet tall
- 6 feet, 11 inches wide
- 54 feet long
