The launch customers for this great jet, Brit Air and MyAir, were ready to take control of their aircraft and improve their fleets. The first flight was 3. Orders and Deliveries Even though MyAir was one of the first companies to order the CRJ, they soon filed for bankruptcy, so Brit Air was the first launch customer. Other orders soon flooded in, including from Air Nostrum for 35 jets and Adria Airways for one. After a fault in the rudder controls during a flight test in , the jet was put on hold to fix the problem before resuming again in February

Bombardier CRJ aircraft prototype completed its first flight on September 3, Bombardier CRJ is marketed to meet the needs of regional airlines that are developing for jets of up to seats, with environmentally friendly performance and with a special focus on low operating costs, greater fuel efficiency and increased passenger comfort.
The fuselage has a semi-monocoque design. The overall length is The aircraft is equipped with Menasco Aerospace three-wheeled landing gear that can be pulled. A total of 1, regional Bombardier CRJ regional jets were ordered, and 1, of them were sent.
Bombardier CRJ aircraft are built in two versions, the standard version and the extended-range ER version. The new A2 engine is also equipped with high performance high pressure turbines, which provide increased durability and reduce maintenance costs. High pressure turbines combine modifications to the airfoil design, new airfoil layers and improved cooling systems.
The engine is installed on the rear side of the fuselage and is equipped with full authority digital engine control FADEC. Engine nacelles are supplied by Bombardier Aerospace of Belfast.
The Intertechnique fuel management system is equipped with Ratier-Figeac controls. Additional Honeywell power units installed in the tailcone and electric power are provided by the Hamilton Standard electric generator, with two integrated drive generators that provide 40kVA.
Standard seating for passengers in a four-way configuration. Other interior layouts include two-class interiors with mixed seat pitches. Airplane lighting is supplied by Hella Aerospace GmbH. Air-conditioned cabin with Liebherr air management system.
Integrated avionics processor integrates flight management systems and autopilot. The windshield and cockpit side windows are equipped with an electric eraser system. Airplane development was announced in February and in June Bombardier received firm orders for 64 Bombardier CRJ and four options. The first customer was the French airline Brit Air, with 14 aircraft ordered, and the Italian airline MyAir, with 15 orders.
Adria Airways booked one aircraft in January with one as an option. In July Bombardier had deposits of 36 Bombardier CRJ aircraft, out of a total of 49 orders received for aircraft. Share This:.
Leading-edge extensions and high-lift slats improved the wing performance, other aerodynamic changes included an enlarged horizontal tailfin. Its improvements and conic nozzle enhances fuel economy by 5. The Endeavor fleet of CRJ NextGen aircraft are configured in a two class seating configuration, with 12 first class seats and 64 coach seats. A re-engining of the CRJ, akin to the rival Embraer E-Jet E2 , with newer and more efficient engines, such as the GE Passport , to replace the current GE CF34 powerplants, would be unlikely to overcome the certification expense, primarily as newer engines are larger and heavier, eroding fuel burn improvements that would be achieved on short regional routes. Also, SAS ordered 13 of these in March The Danish lessor Nordic Aviation Capital also ordered 12 for Garuda to operate with delivery beginning in

During the late s, the relatively wide fuselage of the Challenger, which could comfortably seat a pair of passengers on each side of a central aisle, was observed by some Canadair officials to suggest that it would be somewhat straightforward to produce a stretch of the aircraft for the purpose of accommodating more seats. Accordingly, in , the company publicised its proposal for an expanded model of the aircraft, designated as the Challenger E, which would have had seating for an additional 24 passengers. Despite the cancellation of the E, neither the concept or general interest in the development of an enlarged derivative had disappeared. The programme was launched with the aim of selling at least aircraft. This sub-variant was developed with the purpose of more closely conforming with the requirements of both corporate and executive operators.
