ERJ 140 Maintenance & Interior Conversion

At C&L, We’ve Helped Pioneer The ERJ Semi-private Conversion Market.


At C&L we’ve helped pioneer the ERJ semi-private conversion market.


We’ve created several packages and fully-customizable options for operators.


Fully Customized Options

We have built a program that can assist operators with something as simple as an interior refurbishment to a fully transformed and upgraded interior.

When it comes to converting your ERJ 140 jet, you have options. There are multiple semi-private seat configurations available for each aircraft type. How many seats and what seat layout you want on your aircraft will depend on the aircraft type and your desired level of customization.

Regular commercial layout (44 seat)

You don’t have to reduce the number of seats on your regional aircraft to receive an exclusive, first-class interior. While this layout is not considered “semi-private,” this baseline option allows for interior refurbishment and some customizable upgrades while retaining the original number of seats in the 2:1 standard configuration for each aircraft, which are as follows:

ERJ 140 has 44 seats with a 31” pitch

Regular layout (30 seat)

With a 30-seat configuration, passengers gain more personal space than in a traditional regional or commercial aircraft layout. The overhead bins are removed, the number of seats is reduced, and seats are rearranged in a 1:1 configuration with a center aisle (in comparison to the 2:1 commercial seating layout). An FAA-approved flat floor modification STC is required for seat configurations with a center aisle.

ERJ 140 has a 39” pitch

Space jet (25 or 30 seats)

For a seat reconfiguration featuring fewer seats without a flat floor modification, you may opt for a table modification option – which we refer to as the “Space Jet”. The Space Jet configuration provides passengers with more personal space by removing some seats and replacing them with tables. By replacing some seats with tables, the seat track does not need to be altered from the commercial 2.1 seat layout.

● ERJ 140 has 25 seats with a 31” pitch or 30 seats with a 34” pitch

● ERJ 145 has 30 seats with a 37” pitch

VIP jet (18 seat)

VIP jet (18 seat)

Providing passengers with the most personal space is the VIP 1:1 seating configuration. This option offers first-class seats with adjustable lumbar, additional recline angles with unique leg support functions, and ample leg room. The cabin features a center aisle (FAA-approved flat floor modification STC is required).

ERJ 140 has 18 seats with a 48” pitch forward of the hatch and a 41” pitch aft of the hatch

ERJ 145 has 22 seats with a 46” pitch forward of the hatch and a 40” pitch aft of the hatch
