From Cobham press release

“Since we launched our fleet renewal program we have welcomed five new Q400s, with this latest E190 bringing our number of these aircraft types to three,” said Tim Pirga, Cobham’s Business Development Director.

“The Cobham team is hard at work planning the introduction of another two aircraft - a fourth E190 and sixth Q400 - as we countdown to 2022.”

Cobham are also looking for Q400 flight crew for their ADL base so it’ll only be a matter of time before the Q400 is there as well.

Cobham BAe 146 performs final flight in WA

Charter, FIFO and special missions operator Cobham has completed its final British Aerospace 146 flight in Western Australia, ending nearly four decades of operations in the state.

The final flight, a FIFO flight for Minara Resources, touched down in Perth from Murrin Murrin at around 8:05pm on Thursday.

To mark the occasion, the aircraft, VH-NJY, was welcomed in Perth with a water cannon salute.

NJY has since been deployed to South Australia, where Cobham has consolidated its BAe146/RJ100 operations. Instead, Cobham will operate its fleet of Embraer E190 and De Havilland Q400 aircraft to service the WA FIFO and resources sector.

The flight marked the end of an era, as the distinguishable four-engine jet has operated in WA since 1985, initially by both Ansett and National Jet Systems (which later became Cobham).

Since 1990, National Jet Systems and Cobham have operated a total of 33 BAe 146 aircraft in the region, with Cobham fitting several of the aircraft with a “gravel kit” to for high-capacity jet operations to more remote mine sites in WA.

Using its BAe 146/RJ100 fleet, Cobham supported FIFO contracts for BHP, Rio Tinto and Anaconda, as well as commercial operations to Cocos Island and Christmas Island.

By my calculations this is the 60th ERJ to appear on the VH register & fly in Australia.

Note: There has been several on the VH register that were NTU & didn't make it downunder.
