DUBLIN - Embraer has signed a contract with Widerøe, the largest regional airline in Scandinavia, for up to 15 E2 family jets. The contract consists of three firm orders for the E190-E2 and purchase rights for 12 further E2 family aircraft. This flexible mix of pur???chase rights for E175-E2, E190-E2, and E195-E2 will give Widerøe the ability to grow their fleet with a family of aircraft from 80 to 130+ seats, to right size capacity to meet market requirements.

The order has a potential list price value of up to $873million, if all orders are converted. The three firm orders for E190-E2s were included in Embraer’s fourth quarter 2016 backlog.

"It's always an important moment for Embraer when we add a new airline to our family of operators. It’s even better to be part of a step change in that customer’s operations - our next generation E190-E2s will also be the first jets in Widerøe’s fleet. The opportunities for both Embraer and Widerøe as the airline seeks to expand and move beyond only turboprop operations, present an exciting future. A great way to start 2017," said Arjan Meijer, chief commercial officer, Embraer Commercial Aviation.

Widerøe will configure the E190-E2s in a single-class layout with 114 seats. Deliveries are scheduled for 2018. This deal brings the E-Jets E2 backlog to 275 firm orders plus Letters of Intent, options and purchase rights covering another 415 aircraft giving a total of 690 commitments from airlines and leasing companies.

VERO BEACH, Fla. - Piper Aircraft has received an order for 50 Archers from their dealer in China, China Air Shuttle.

China Air Shuttle, based in Beijing with branches in different provinces of China, will begin to take delivery in Q2 of 2017 with 30 aircraft scheduled to be delivered in the first year and the remaining 20 to follow in Q1 and Q2 of 2018. China Air Shuttle also intends to order and stock more trainers to meet the fast-growing flight training market in China.

The fleet of aircraft will be manufactured and certificated at Piper Aircraft’s factory in Vero Beach, Florida, and then shipped to China where they will be assembled/reassembled by China Air Shuttle’s affiliate company in Rizhao, Shandong Province, China. The facilities in Rizhao will be developed to a localized delivery center for prompt service including assembly/reassembly, training, maintenance and product support for Chinese customers

As the approved Piper Dealer for Archer airplanes in China, China Air Shuttle will then distribute those aircraft to some of the major flight schools and general aviation companies of the region. Ruixiang Flight Academy has been announced as the launch customer by Li Chen, Chairman of China Air Shuttle. Ruixiang Flight Academy purchased two Piper Seminoles in Q2 of 2016, and currently operates the popular multi-engine trainer in its ab initio flight training program.

The high demand for pilots, along with the Civil Aviation Authority of China’s move to accommodate General Aviation as well as the infrastructure improvements seen in China, are leading to the establishment of a multitude of new flight schools and General Aviation companies.
