Well hello there!
A couple of weeks ago when browsing through flights I could do from KSFO (a hub for United), I realized two things. One, there is only the United livery on the E170, and two, that livery is very old and can no longer be seen on United aircraft. So, I decided to come to the IFC and vote for the E175, which can be seen much more frequently. Unfortunately, the old feature request was rather old and didn’t have any votes for it, which surprised me.
So here I am making a new one.
Max Crusie speed: M 0.82
Service Ceiling: 41,000 ft
Range: 2,200 nm (4,074 km)
Max takeoff weight: 89,000 lb (40,370 kg)
Max Landing Weight: 75,178 lb (34,100 kg)
Length: 103 ft 11in (31.68m)
Wingspan: 85 ft 4in (26.00m)
Height: 32 ft 4in (9.86m)
Engines: 2× General Electric GECF34-8E
The E175 is a short to mid-range aircraft and incorporates fly-by-wire technology which improves aircraft performance, simplifies systems architecture, and minimizes weight and maintenance. This aircraft would be great in IF because we could more accurately simulate regional United flights, instead of flying a generic E175 aircraft with the same sound effects as an A380.
“Designed for short to mid-range flights, the Embraer 175 features a flexible seat configuration so you can match capacity to market demand. Achieve greater productivity and higher utilization.” ~ Embraer.
Of course, this livery would come with an Embraer aircraft rework, which you can and should vote for here
Well, do you think this aircraft should be in IF?
- Well it’d be nice, but I’m not gonna vote…
- Nah, I can live without it
Before someone tells me to “vote for your topic”, just know I am out of votes.
