Embraer has started engines for the first time on the wing of an E190-E2.

The Brazilian manufacturer announced 4 April that the E190-E2 completed the first engine run.

The E190-E2 is powered by two PW1900G turbofans that are rated at up to 23,000lb-thrust each for take-off power.

The 73in (185cm) fan diameter of the PW1900Gs replaces the lower-bypass GE CF34 engines on the second-generation regional jet.

Pratt & Whitney delivered the PW1900G as a minor derivative of the PW1500G, the powerplant selected for the Bombardier CSeries family.

The PW1900G also will power the stretched E195-E2.

P&W is developing the PW1700G for the E175-E2, as a minor derivative of the PW1200G developed for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet.

Embraer rollled out the E190-E2 on 25 February in Sao Jose dos Campos. Flight testing is scheduled to begin in the second half of this year, with entry into service expected in 2018.
