Canada air regional jet

Canadair Regional Jet je serija regonalnih potniških letal kanadskega proizvajalca Bombardier . Dizajn je baziran na poslovnem letalu Canadair Challenger . CRJ so izdelovali v dveh serijah krajši CRJ100/200 , in seriji 700, ki obsega CRJ700, CRJ900 in CRJ1000.

Bombardier je zasnoval CRJ na bazi poslovnega letala Canadair Challenger, ki ga je Canadair kupil od Billa Leara ( Learjet ) leta 1976. Širok trup Challengerja je dovolj širok za 4 sedeže, zato so hoteli letalo enostavno podaljšati do 24 sedežnega Challenger 610E, kar pa se niso zgodilo. Ideja pa je ostala. Leta 1987 se je pojavila ideja za bolj ambiciozno podaljšanje, kar je vodilo do programa Canadair Regional Jet , enega izmed najbolj uspešnih regionalnih letal.

CRJ100 : Prvo letalo 50-sedežno letalo CRJ100 je prvič poletelo maja 1991. Ima dva GE CF34-3A1 turbofan z 41.0 kN (4.180 kgp / 9.220 lbf) potiska. CRJ100ER ima 20% več dosega in CRJ100LR 40% več dosega kot originalna različica.

    The Bombardier CRJ700 , CRJ900 , and CRJ1000 are regional jet airliners manufactured by Bombardier and based on the CRJ200 .

    Following the success of the CRJ100/200 series, Bombardier Aerospace produced larger variants in order to compete with larger regional aircraft such as the Fokker 70 / Fokker 100 or the BAe 146 family, and competed later with the Embraer E-Jet family . It accounts for over 20% of all jet departures in North America and globally the family operates more than 200,000 flights per month: a CRJ takes off every 10 seconds. [4]

    Final assembly of the aircraft is at Montréal-Mirabel International Airport in Mirabel, Quebec , outside Montreal , Quebec , Canada . [5]
