11. Embraer ERJ 145 series
Cruise Speed: Mach 0.8
The first airliner on our list is a family of Brazilian jets, called Embraer ERJ 145 series. Equipped with Rolls-Royce AE 3007, ERJ 145 suffered several setbacks during the design process and early manufacturing. At one time, it was even shelved by the company in 1992. The delivery finally started in 1996, with some 890 airliners delivered. The production was continued in China for the local market until 2016.
