Sir - While the EMB-145 flight-test "Basic appeal" (Flight International, 3-9 July, P29) was very good, there was an error. The discussion of the brake-control system incorrectly lists the anti-skid unit as a Maxaret system. It is actually a MkV digital brake-by-wire control system manufactured by Hydro-Air/Crane in Burbank, California.
