Dunno... I'd look into Mitsubishi's website for more details.

I love how this has totally gone out of the window.

Sorry! The problem was that I haven't been updating a lot of threads lately... Sadly, that thread has been closed.

You can say that again... it may also look a bit similar to the Embraer E190 too. But yes, that aircraft can help ease the regional aircraft woes in a region where wide bodies rule the roost, even for short hops. And it means airlines in Asia may not need to order all the way from Brazil for such aircraft.

JAL signs pact to purchase 32 new regional jets from Mitsubishi

NAGOYA (Kyodo) -- Japan Airlines Co. said Wednesday it has signed a definitive agreement to purchase 32 Mitsubishi Regional Jet aircraft from Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp.

The 70- to 90-seat MRJ, now under development by the subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., is the first-ever Japanese-built small passenger jet. It is some 20 percent more fuel efficient than existing aircraft of a similar size.

Mitsubishi Aircraft will deliver the first aircraft to JAL in 2021 for J-Air Corp., a JAL affiliate providing domestic flights out of Osaka...... to read more click here

This is great i am happy to see more of different Aircraft Manufactors in the Aviation field its great to see a Japanese one being build i hope Mitsubishi decides to build widebody jets along with Boeing and Airbus.

I can see Mitsubishi being like the famous McDonald Douglas Corp, or Lockheed i hope that they will start building widebody jets with the success of the Regional Jet from Mitsubishi.

Date set for maiden flight of MRJ! !

Test flight of first 'made-in-Japan' passenger jet planned for May
NAGOYA--Japan’s first passenger jet will make its maiden flight on May 29 at the earliest, the manufacturers said.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. and subsidiary Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. have entered the final stage in preparations for the first test flight of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) aircraft.

The preparations include strength tests on the engines and the body of the first test model on the ground.

In the planned test flight, the jet will take off from Nagoya Airport in Aichi Prefecture, take a route over either the Pacific Ocean or the Sea of Japan depending on weather conditions, and return to the airport.

The companies are aiming for May 29, but officials said the schedule could be pushed back if problems are found in the tests and inspections of aircraft functions, as well as weather conditions.....to read more click here

Looks as if Mitsubishi had moved back the maiden test flight targeting Jul-Sept. this year due to delay in static structural strength test.

What a bummer.

What a bummer.
Looks as if the press had jumped the guns with MHI and Mitsubishi Airplanes had both stated that they have not made any announcements that they will delay the maiden test flight.
They have acknowledged that they had some trouble adjusting test equipments but had stated that it had not delayed any actual testing. They will release a date of actual maiden test flight today.

Related to the MRJ - They are building the test facility here is Washington State - Moses Lake / Grant County Airport.

Great news! Here is the final pour on the floor of the new 65,000 square foot hangar and it is happening right now! The wait to host Mitsubishi will be worth it! They are a World Class Company with a World Class Airplane!

Here is an interesting article.

Mitsubishi sets sights on aircraft sector
By ELAINE KURTENBACH

NAGOYA — At a tightly guarded factory in central Japan, Mitsubishi, a maker of the Zero fighter planes of World War II, is launching its MRJ regional jet and aiming to fulfill Japan’s long-cherished ambitions to regain status as a major aviation power.

The company said Friday that a recent decision to push back the jet’s maiden flight from this spring to a few months later would not delay its commercial deliveries. Workers were conducting hydraulic and other tests on two of the test jets in a cavernous assembly facility; another jet had been sent out for painting.

Nobuo Kishi, a vice president of Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp., said the latest delay could speed things along because it is intended to allow for modifications that otherwise would be needed later.

“We don’t see the change in the test flight as a delay, but as an improvement,” Kishi told visiting reporters. “We want to continue the test flights without interrupting them for modifications.”

Still, company executives are emphatic about their determination and urgency to get the job done.... to read more click here

I don't think that the MRJ will see much success in America. The size of the plane doesn't fit in well with scope clauses. The MRJ 90 is too heavy to allow it to be operated by the regionals, and the MRJ70 isn't big enough to have many premium seats, unlike the CRJ900 and E175.

Or they can get the Delta pilots to relax scope clauses, which will then cascade throughout the industry. Delta pilots would even vote their own jobs away if it meant better payscales.

I am sure MRJ will be a huge success in Asian countries as there are more passengers flying than before. Especially countries like Philippines, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Thailand. Asia offer a huge market for regional jets.
