Le Bas International has been providing Group Travel and Incentive Air Travel solutions for over 25 years! Providing our clients with the latest and most cost effective aircraft featuring new technology and safety features is paramount. An example of future new aircraft technology is Embraer E-Jet E2 family of aircraft currently in development.The E2 is a family of three narrow-body medium-range twin-engine jet airliners developed by Brazilian aerospace company Embraer, replacing the predecessor Embraer E-Jet family.

The three variants share the same fuselage cross sections with different lengths and three different new wings, Pratt & Whitney PW1000G geared turbofans in two sizes, fly-by-wire controls with new avionics, and an updated cabin with 40% enlarged baggage bins. Compared to the previous E-Jet family the E2 features a closed loop fly-by-wire control which according to Embraer reduces weight, increases fuel efficiency, enhances control and increases safety by full envelope protection in all flight phases. Analysts account the fuel savings of the now closed loop fly-by-wire control at 1.5% because of design changes possible due to the enhanced flight stability and the resulting increased lift (lower tail downward force) and weight savings and drag reductions related to the 26% reduction in the horizontal tail size. Announced improvements per seat are 16 to 24% lower fuel burn and 15-25% lower maintenance cost. Embraer E-Jets E2 are scheduled for first deliveries in 2018.
