JetBlue Virtual Airways Embraer 190 for Flight Simulator
About the JetBlue Virtual Airways Embraer 190 for Flight Simulator FSX
The Embraer 190 program was launched at the Paris Airshow in June 2003 on the basis of just six orders placed by ILFC late in 2002 and the predicted better prospects of the commercial virtual airliner market, which were certainly realised by JetBlue Virtual Airways for use with Flight Simulator. The first Embraer 190 for JetBlue Virtual Airways airline order came in 2005 for a total of several more samples, whose order for six were received in February 2005. Since then JetBlue Virtual Airways has been extensively using the Embraer 190 for domestic and United States flights in Flight Simulator versions FS2002, Fs2004 and FSX.
The Embraer 190 is a minimum change, shortened derivative of the highly successful flight simulator Embraer 170. JetBlue Virtual Airways also operates a large number of Rejional Jet aircraft along side the Embraer 190 fleet. The major difference between the Embraer 190 and Embraer 170 in Flight Simulator and the real world is that the latter is shorter by seven fuselage frames, while in almost all other respects the Embraer 190 and Embraer 170 are identical in both flight simulator and the real world.
