Bombardier CRJ 700

Bombardier CRJ 700

Bombardier CRJ700 is a 68-75-seater turbofan series regional jet developed by Canada’s Bombardier Aerospace. The design was derived from the smaller CRJ100 and 200 airliners. Market analysis and program demonstration began in 1995. The project was officially launched on January 21, 1997. A number of potential users participated in the design of the aircraft. By mid-1998, engine selection and low and high-speed wind tunnel tests were completed.

Originally, Bombardier marketed CRJ series along with a family of larger jets, the C Series (now majorly owned by Airbus and marketed as Airbus A220) and a twin-turboprop, the Q Series.

Bombardier’s CRJ program is now acquired by Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (as of June 1, 2020).
