CPI Aerostructures expands relationship with Embraer

Staff Writer |
CPI Aerostructures has been selected by Embraer S.A. of Brazil to supply various structural components used in the manufacture of engine pylon fairings for the Embraer E175-E2 aircraft.

The E175-E2 is one of the members of the second generation of its E-Jets family of commercial aircraft, the E-Jets E2. CPI Aero has received a binding go-ahead notice for the first shipset to be delivered to Embraer during the first quarter of 2017.

Douglas J. McCrosson, president and CEO of CPI Aero commented, “This contract award for the new E175-E2 builds on our existing, strong relationship with Embraer and is a testament to our performance in delivering engine inlets for its Phenom 300 executive jet since 2012.

“To date, we have delivered inlets for more than 300 Phenom 300 executive jets and we look forward to an equally successful relationship on the E175-E2.”

In 2013, Embraer launched the E-Jet E2, comprised of three new airplanes – E175-E2, E190-E2, and E195-E2 – seating from 70 to 130+ passengers.
