MRJ Programme Schedule Confirmed

Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (MITAC) has confirmed an updated schedule of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) programme; the first flight is set for 2Q 2015, with first delivery in 2Q 2017. Prior to this adjustment, the first flight was scheduled for 4Q 2013, and the first delivery was expected between summer 2015 and 1Q 2016. MITAC says the delay is due to design and respective certification taking greater resources than anticipated and therefore impacting component deliveries and aircraft fabrication.
