N674RJ American Eagle / Envoy Air Embraer ERJ-145LR
N674RJ was delivered to American Eagle on April 20, 2004 when the name was attached to an actual airline. When American Eagle became a brand under American Airlines, the Embraer ERJ145LR was then transferred to Envoy Air. Complicated but not really, the airliner has always performed regional flights for American Airlines.
This aircraft is configured for a maximum total of 50 passengers, all in economy class with three of those seats containing extra leg room. This is one of 59 E145 airplanes flown by Envoy Air for American Eagle.
On January 10, 2014, N674RJ experienced a small problem on a flight from Madison, Wisconsin to Dallas / Ft. Worth, Texas. Climbing out of Madison, crew reported a banging noise in the cockpit. The aircraft was diverted to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a safe landing. Maintenance boarded the ERJ-145 and the flight continued on to its planned destination over five hours later.
The Embraer ERJ-145 took its maiden flight on August 11, 1995 and was introduced on April 6, 1997. The 50 passenger aircraft is 30 metres or 98 feet in length with a wingspan of 20 metres or 66 feet At the tail, it stands seven metres or 22 feet in height. The flight range for the LR version is 2,870 kilometres.
