nobody, apparently.

X-Crafts have released their updated E-Jets Family for X-Plane 11 and X-Plane 12. This release follows their older E-Jets and ERJ products. This new version of the E-Jets family covers the E170, E175, E190, and E195 models. The aircraft is a complete rebuild of its original E-Jets family featuring a new authentic FMS and all-new systems. 

The E-Jets family is a collection of regional jets from the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer. The E170/175 has become wildly popular on short routes in the 70-seat American regional market. The E170/175 Features a range of around 2100 NM while the larger E190/195 jet features a range of 2300 NM. The larger E190/195 has become popular with many larger airlines to serve routes with medium demand. 

The X-Crafts E-Jets family has a large feature list including an authentic FMS, systems that closely simulate the real aircraft, a custom EFB, and custom FMOD sounds. The aircraft comes compatible with both X-Plane 11 and X-Plane 12 and utilizes SkunkCrafts Auto Updater. Other features include:

Systems & Autopilot

  • All the main aircraft systems were developed based on the real aircraft and from the input of real E-Jet pilots.
  • Custom autopilot modes were developed, including LNAV and VNAV.


  • Exact one-to-one high-resolution rendition of the PFD, MFD and EICAS screens, incorporating the exact colors and fonts.
