EMB 190 opportunities for narrow-body pilots and crew

Recent news indicates that the landscape of EMB 170 and EMB 190 opportunities is changing.

Many companies that have traditionally relied on Embraer aircraft are changing the composition of their fleets. Some are selecting the latest Embraer models (E2s), while others are choosing different aircraft types altogether.

Today, we’ll take a look at which airlines are shaking things up. We’ll also give you a heads-up on all the latest EMB 190 opportunities that could help you take the next step in your career.

Which airlines are phasing out EMB 170 and EMB 190 E1 aircraft?

These are the airlines traditionally reliant on EMB aircraft that have announced plans to change their fleet compositions within the coming years:

Why are airlines gravitating towards other aircraft?

Each airline has its own individual reasons for switching to other aircraft, and choosing now as the time to make a change.

However, most of these airlines are making a change based on one or more of the following factors:

  • Lower cost of ownership
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Increased revenue-generation potential

How do these trends open up more EMB 190 opportunities?

Despite increasing numbers of airlines choosing different types of aircraft over the EMB 195 and other older Embraer models, the skills needed to fly and crew these aircraft will be in demand for some time yet.

Certain airlines are keeping hold of these aircraft for their own specific reasons (e.g. they’re more cost-effective or better suited within specific markets). And some airlines are simply updating to newer Embraer models with a similar composition.

Pilots and crew will undoubtedly look to follow the market, re-train and ply their trade in other types of aircraft. However, those who remain are likely to see their skills grow in demand, at least in the short/medium-term.
