Bombardier CRJ700, CRJ900, and CRJ1000 is the family of regional commercial aircraft of the Canadian manufacturer, based on its successful previous version CRJ200, and which was designed to compete with commercial passenger aircraft of other international manufacturers in this segment, such as Embraer, Fokker or BAE Systems.
The program has more than 1,900 regional jets in service and more than 120 operators in 90 countries, which has made it one of the first regional jet aircraft of the aeronautical industry and with greater success. It stands out for its advanced aerodynamics and new optimized winglets, a light design and improved engines, and its new interior cabin Atmosphere, which makes it offer economic operating costs for regional jets.
Its three versions CRJ700, CRJ900, and CRJ1000 have a passenger capacity ranging from 78 to 104 people, and a maximum range of between 1,400 and 1,650 nautical miles.
Different companies of the Spanish aerospace sector and from Hélice Association started to work some years ago for these Bombardier programmes, as part of their strategy to diversify markets and customers.
