Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation awards contract for passenger, service and cargo doors for new Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) to Eurocopter

Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has signed a contract with Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH to design and manufacture aircraft doors (passenger, service and cargo doors) for its next-generation regional jet, the MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet), which is currently under development.

Aircraft doors are safety critical components of an aircraft. Due to the demanding certification and safety requirements the doors contain a complex and failsafe mechanism to enable them to be operated under all circumstances. Eurocopter's Business Centre Airplane Door Systems, based in Donauwörth, Germany, has over 20 years of proven expertise in aircraft doors. Technical know-how combined with an attractive commercial offer enabled Eurocopter to become partner with Mitsubishi Aircraft on the MRJ regional jet in the very competitive environment of aero structures.

Dr. Wolfgang Schoder, CEO of Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH, stated during the contract signature ceremony in Nagoya: "This is a significant success for our company. We are very proud to continue the long and successful relationship between Eurocopter and the Japanese industry on aircraft doors and helicopters with this new project."

Eurocopter is looking forward to work very closely with the Mitsubishi Aircraft team to use synergies and make the MRJ a success story.
