The Embraer 135 is a regional jet airliner as well as a corporate jet. It was derived from the 50 seat ERJ-145.
Launched in September 1997, delivery of the first airplane was to Continental Express on July 1999.
The main difference between the 145 and 135 is the shorter length by 11ft 6in (3.50m) which is equivalent to 2 fuselage plugs or sections.
The Embraer RJ145 seats 50 passengers and is sold as a regional airliner.
It was first launched in 1989 at the Paris Airshow. It first flew in August 1995 owned by ExpressJet Airlines who are the largest operators of the RJ145, followed by American Eagle.
