======================================
ROLE

After the success of the EMB-110, Embraer began the development
 of their first transport category airliner in 1974.
 Originally called the Araguaia, the name was changed
 to Brasilia in 1979 at the official launching of the project.
The Brasilia attracted immediate interest from many regional
 airlines, particularly in the USA.
The size, speed and ceiling allowed faster and more direct
 services around the US and Europe, compared to similar aircraft.
 The first aircraft entered service with Atlantic Southeast Airlines in October 1985.
