Embraer has received ISA+39-degrees C certification for the E190 airliner from Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) and the FAA, the company announced yesterday. With the certification, the 100-seat jet can fly without operational restriction in airports where temperatures reach as high as 129 degrees F at sea level.
Responding to Dassault’s claim that an “unanticipated request by the FAA” had prompted a redesign of the Falcon 7X bleed-air system (see page 58), the FAA insists there is no new regulation on this issue. “We have no new transport policy or rulemaking (including proposed rulemaking),” an FAA spokesman told AIN. However, the 200 degrees C limit has been standard industry practice for decades.
