A series of narrow-bodied and medium-range aircraft, the Embraer family have been respectable airliners for many years. They have been in production since 2001 and since then have really established themselves as trustworthy aircraft to take to the skies with. With more than 1,000 of these aircraft made over the years, they have become a mainstream option worldwide and regularly serve large airliners like JetBlue, Air Canada and even the Compass Airlines.

Used by both mainline and regional airports, it’s been a helpful aircraft to have out there in the skies as it provides spacious transport for up to 80 people with a fine balance of speed and comfort. They are based loosely on the Bombardier Q400 and this makes them even more popular as the Bombardier ranges are equally useful aircraft.

It offers realism and excitement all in one, giving you plenty of enjoyable little features and extras that resonate well with the high definition style that gives you unprecedented detail for the flight simulator it’s made for, Flight Simulator 2004.

This regional jet package from Virtualcol is a great download that offers two well-crafted models from the Embraer family of narrow body jet-airliners. If you happen to be in the market for either of these aircraft in particular, I doubt you'll find a better addition to your FS2004 hangar.
With all the amenities that we've come to expect from our simulator add-ons, this download doesn't disappoint; Virtualcol have pushed as much detail as they can into this package, stretching the simulator to its limit. The two models themselves, the E-170 and the E-175 are very well sculpted, featuring smooth curves along the fuselage and the attractive winglets, and crisp, clean lines in all the right places. The same can be said of the high quality textures, that hold a lot of fine detail and add that further level of realism that we are all looking for. Both the interior and the exterior of the two aircraft have received this treatment, ensuring that both models can promote as much realism as possible. And all of this is achieved without striking a heavy blow against your performance.
A total of thirty-seven liveries are included in this package, which is more than enough to choose from. Twenty-eight of which are assigned to the E-170, and the remaining nine are for the E-175. I'm not entirely sure why there is such an unbalance here, but I've found that even with nine liveries to choose from, it can be hard to pick a favorite.
Virtualcol has implemented certain features in an effort to keep you immersed in the experience at all times. Custom animations tied to auxiliary stairs and ground services, can be activated from inside the cockpit so that you can keep experiencing realism at a premium even when you're not flying.
When it comes to flying it is important to note, that while part of the same package, each of these aircraft are treated as individuals; they each have their own finely tuned flight characteristics, and exhibit their own behavior in the air. Taking the time to learn how to fly each of them properly, and learn what makes one different from the other, is half the fun. Although there's nothing stopping you from just picking a favorite and taking off into the sunset together.
