Welcome to the Embraer E175/190 Profiles Guide
The long awaited Embraer 175 & E190 is finally here! Powered by two General Electric CF34-8E5/-10E5 engines, this gorgeous aircraft is bound to provide you with a whole host of awesome routes to fly. Often referred to as the “Baby 737” in the airline industry, the Embraer 175 has quickly become the staple and leading aircraft for the regional airline market. Loved by passengers, pilots and crews, I’m sure this aircraft will find a unique place in your inner avgeek heart.
The Embraer 175 is one of the more popular aircraft in the United States and will feature a handful of North American liveries. The E190 on the other-hand is more pronounced outside of the United States and serves a wide variety of operators all over the globe. The E175/E190 features a full glass cockpit as well as a full cabin interior for all of your flight attendant needs.

What’s the point of this topic? Find out here…
The purpose of this guide is to provide you with ball park speeds, flap settings, and power settings to get you in the air and onto the runway in one piece. These values are not 100% accurate as each flight is different. Weather, airport elevation, weight, runway length and other factors will affect these values.
Takeoff & Landing Conditions
View the conditions in which this guide was built upon. Also included are the weather & location of this test.
Tests were conducted at Honolulu International Airport (PHNL) /// Airport Elev. 13ft \\\
- Winds Calm
- Runway 08R
- Temperature Standard (15˚C)
- All initial pitch angles were 12.5˚ nose up until 1000ft AGL
- Heavy Departure/Landing conducted at 100% load. Adjust as necessary.
Takeoff & Landing Table
This is the information you’re looking for. Flying these numbers under the various loads will ensure your safe operations of getting off/on the ground. You may need to interpolate some for aircraft loads that don’t match up exactly.
The first table is for the Embraer E175. The second table below is for the E190
|Load %||Takeoff Power||Takeoff Flaps||Rotate||Landing Flaps||Vap ‡||Vref|
|25%||78% = 82% N1||Flaps 2||117 kts||Flaps 5||124 kts||118 kts|

|50%||80% = 84% N1||Flaps 2||127 kts||Flaps 5||132 kts||126 kts|
|63%||81% = 85% N1||Flaps 2||133 kts||Flaps 5||138 kts||131 kts|
|75%***||82% = 86% N1||Flaps 2||138 kts||Flaps 5||142 kts||135 kts|
|88%***||83% = 87% N1||Flaps 2||143 kts||Flaps 5||146 kts||139 kts|
|100%***||89% = 91 % N1||Flaps 2||148 kts||Flaps 5||151 kts||144 kts|
|Load %||Takeoff Power||Takeoff Flaps||Rotate||Landing Flaps||Vap ‡||Vref||Weight (lbs/kgs)|
|25%||78% = 82% N1||Flaps 2||114 (103) kts||5 Flaps||126 kts||116 kts||74k/35.6k|
|37%||80% = 84% N1||Flaps 2||121 (108) kts||5 Flaps||131 kts||121 kts||81k/36.7k|
|50%||81% = 85% N1||Flaps 2||128 (114) kts||5 Flaps||136 kts||126 kts||88k/39.9k|
|63%||83% = 87% N1||Flaps 2||133 (117) kts||5 Flaps||140 kts||130 kts||93k/42.2k|
|75%||85% = 88% N1||Flaps 2||140 (124) kts||Full Flaps||138 kts||128 kts||101k/45.8k|
|88%||88% = 91% N1||Flaps 2||145 (129) kts||Full Flaps||142 kts||132 kts||108k/49.9k|
|100%||91% = 93% N1||Flaps 2||150 kts||Full Flaps||145 kts||135 kts||114k/51.7k|
- Increase power to 40% N1 prior to setting takeoff power
- Maximum Landing Gross Weight (MLGW) is 74,957lbs (33,999kgs). Landing speeds @75% weight calculated at MLGW
- Flaps Full Landings: Subtract anywhere from 6kts - 12kts from Vref if landing Flaps Full. Lighter weight will require a small reduction whereas a heavier landing weight will require a bigger reduction.
- Example: Vref, Flaps Full @25% load = 112kts. Vref, Flaps Full @75% = 126kts
‡ Note: *APPR is available on this aircraft under 72% aircraft load
- For Flaps 4 departures, min VR speed is 106kts and a max VR speed of 129kts which is at a max weight of 108k lbs (81674kg).
- The numbers in the “( - - - )” indicate Flaps 4 dep speeds.
- Flaps 4 departures are required for shorter runway operations like that found at EGLC
- MLW 94.8k lbs (43k kgs) 63% load
- Speeds gradually speed up before dropping back during the app/landing speeds. This is normal since I changed flap setting at these higher weights.
- Landing flare pitch should be about 2.5˚ nose up for an AOA of 5 - 6˚.
- Descent rate should not exceed -1000ft/min on final approach. (-800ft/min is optimal)
- Add 5 - 10kts to Vref/Landing speed in gusty conditions or in situations where steeper bank angles may be required.
***Heavy Departures/Landings: Takeoffs over 75% may result in takeoff over Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW). This may also result in runway overruns. This could lead to overweight landings depending on your configuration and length of flight. Consider all factors and risks.
For reference the flap and various limitations for each setting are listed below. The limitations can be found marked in the cockpit of the E175 either to the immediate left or right of the PFD screen depending on the seat occupied (CA - Left … FO - Right).
Speeds & Limitations
|Flaps||Speed Limitation||Suggested Extension Speed|
|1||230 kts||200 kts|
|2||215 kts||180 kts|
|3||200 kts||160 kts|
|4||180 kts||Takeoff Only|
Various notes from testing in the making of this guide. Other helpful pointers to ensuring maximum realism.
- Climb Profile: Above 10,000ft, pitch for 280kts/or M.74 until reaching cruise. Once level in cruise then speed up to cruise Mach.
- For 25-100% loads, Flaps 2 was used for data
- Takeoff Power - The first percentage is your throttle amount. The second value is the N1 read out as indicated in green above your throttle.
- 10% trim was used to conduct these tests.
- (Trim is personal preference based on how you calibrate and hold your device. Adjust as necessary)
Note: Fuel flow, thrust and other aircraft performance factors may apply.

A quick reference guide for you to view/save for your own personal needs. From taxi out to taxi in, everything all on one sheet can be found here.
If you would like a quick reference guide, you’re more than welcome to utilize this one that I’ve condensed into a 1 page sheet. It has just about everything you’ll want to know in terms of “What do I use for takeoff/cruise/landing?” and “When do I add/remove flaps or power?”. Below is a screenshot of what this document looks like as well as a PDF download link for that crisp picture and saving for future use.

Feel free to add any questions or other helpful tips/pointers that you may find beneficial to others and myself or our helpful community members will gladly address those.
Please also check out other guides I have created for other recently new/reworked aircraft. I plan on making this series a regular thing as aircraft are reworked or new from the factory as a handful of folks seem to appreciate the quick start information.
Huge thanks to Laura, Jarno and the rest of the team for making this aircraft what it is today. I was happy to help when they reached out looking for assistance with data and other reference materials. Really happy with the outcome of this product and hope all enjoy it as much as we all do ❤️
I hope you enjoy this aircraft as much as I did in making this guide! Now get out there and have fun! ✈️
