Embraer EMB120 Brasilia - turboprop regional passenger aircraft. Can carry up to thirty passengers. Produced by Embraer in Brazil. 27.07.1983 took off for the first time.

The fuselage has an internal diameter of 2,28 meters, and the seats in the row are arranged according to the scheme 2 + 1. The aircraft is equipped with two PrattWhitney PW100 type turboprop engines and had the initial designation PW115, which during launch into the series (and further variations) changed to PW118 (there are also variations of PW118B and PW118A with increased power). These engines open the PW100 type engine range (PW120, PW118, PW124, PW121, PW127) but unlike previous models, this engine is not equipped with a screw brake, therefore it cannot work on the ground in the APU mode. The aircraft is equipped with the APU, especially the Garrett GTCP36150AA. During production from 1983 to 2001, more than 350 Embraer 120 aircraft were produced in various variants.
