The FAA, EASA and Brazil’s aviation authority have approved a new maintenance program for the Embraer ERJ 145, allowing operators to increase C-check intervals from 4,000 flight hours to 5,000 hours. Embraer claims this extension, along with other recent efforts to lower maintenance costs, will cut maintenance workloads by 13 percent.
