First E195-E2 Gets its Legs
Production of the first E195-E2 continues on schedule with the delivery of the first landing gear on November 21.
ELEB, manufacturer of the units, designed them to withstand high impact. Each gear is made of titanium and steel while the stems are made of aluminum. ELEB produces landing gear for other Embraer aircraft as well as the valve and actuator system which extends and retracts the gear and gear doors.
The E2’s landing gear was redesigned along with the aircraft’s new wing, fly-by-wire controls, and vertical and horizontal stabilizers to improve fuel efficiency.
