Embraer has issued a service bulletin allowing operators of its 50-seat ERJ-145 regional jet to install high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, with the first kits to be delivered by next month.
Embraer is likely to base any future turboprop airliner on the fuselage of its current E-Jet models and use conventional engines rather than any alternative propulsion system, the head of its commercial aviation unit indicates.
Europe’s air safety regulator expects to publish a final airworthiness directive on modification of the Boeing 737 Max in mid-January, which will mark the formal revocation of the grounding order imposed on the twinjet.
