Mitsubishi MRJ Nearing Certification
Mitsubishi continues to successfully address development hurtles identified in its new MRJ Aircraft. Reuters and Aviation International News provide detailed reports on the latest developments with this program. Avi8ion’s related pages contain outlooks for Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, COMAC and Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation.
The Japanese Manufacturer’s flagship MRJ aircraft is driving toward certification with four flight test aircraft in Moses Lake, Washington. A fifth flight test aircraft arrives later in 2018. Several major modifications are complete, including a major software change in the fourth flight test aircraft. After the fifth aircraft arrives at Moses Lake, efforts will focus on pilot procedures, checklists and operations.
