Embraer had to scrap plans to bring one of its new 70-seat regional jets to display at the ERA assembly in a bid to catch up on slight technical delays in its certification program. This process is now expected to be complete about three months later than planned, with launch customer Swiss due to receive its first Embraer 170 next August.

The Embraer 170 made a high-profile appearance at the Regional Airline Association annual meeting in Nashville, Tenn., in May. The aircraft has recently made a sales trip to Europe, visiting both France’s Regional and Scandinavian Airline System.
