First PW1200G For Mitsubishi Regional Jet

Mitsubishi Aircraft’s first PurePower PW1200G has arrived at the Mitsubishi Regional Jet’s (MRJ) final-assembly plant in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The engine was shipped from the Mirabel Aerospace Centre in Quebec and is to be fitted to an MRJ test aircraft. Mitsubishi confirmed that it selected the engine because it operates at higher speeds for peak efficiency and generates significantly less noise than comparable engines.
