Bombardier CRJ1000 NextGen regional jet awarded two aircraft type certificates

Bombardier Aerospace announced today that Transport Canada and the European Aviation Safety Agency have awarded Aircraft Type Certificates for the 100-seat CRJ1000 NextGen regional jet.

The largest member of the CRJ Series family of regional jets, the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft was officially launched on February 19, 2007 to meet the requirements of regional airlines for increased capacity and lower seat-mile costs in the face of sustained higher fuel prices.

The CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft's flight test program was conducted from the Bombardier Flight Test Centre in Wichita, Kansas, and the flight test aircraft accumulated approximately 1,400 flight hours in 470 test missions. The prototype CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, serial number 19991, successfully made its inaugural flight from Bombardier's facility in Mirabel, Qu├ębec on September 3, 2008.

The CRJ1000 NextGen airliner adds to the proud tradition of the original ground-breaking 50-passenger CRJ100/200, 70-passenger CRJ700, 75-passenger CRJ705 and 88-passenger CRJ900 regional jets. All models have Same Type Rating, in addition to common maintenance and training, spares and ground support equipment, providing the only true family of jetliners spanning 50 to 100 seats.

"I do not think anyone 20 years ago would have envisaged how the regional jet would transform the airline industry all over the world," said Gary R. Scott, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "We are proud to have introduced the regional jet and we are proud of our ability to read the market and have larger and more cost-effective regional jets as the market required them. This ability has culminated in the production of the magnificent CRJ1000 NextGen regional jet."

Bombardier has booked firm orders for 49 CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, including 35 from Air Nostrum of Spain and 14 from Brit Air of France.

The CRJ NextGen family of aircraft is a benchmark for regional jet efficiency in the 60- to 100-seat segment and is the optimized solution for medium-haul applications. Bombardier has recorded firm orders for a total of 1,709 CRJ Series aircraft. As of July 31, 2010, 1,597 of these CRJ Series aircraft had been delivered to customers around the world. CRJ Series aircraft are in service with more than 60 airlines and have logged more than 28 million flight hours and over 23 million take-off and landing cycles. In addition, corporate variants of CRJ Series aircraft are in service with more than 30 operators.
