Embraer is a Brazilian commercial airplane manufacturer predominantly making regional jets. Originally starting with turbo-prop aircraft like the EMB-120, Embraer has designed and produced two distinctive models of regional jets - the ERJ Series seating 50 passengers with it's T-shape design and tail mounted engines and the Embraer 'E-Jets' seating 70 to 120 passengers with a more typical aircraft design with engines mounted under the wings. Today, Embraer is working on it's 'E2' series of regional jets which are an evolution of the E-Jets family. Embrear's aircraft typically compete with the aircraft offered from Bombardier like the CRJ and Q400 aircraft as they are designed to serve short to medium haul routes with low to medium demand.
