TOKYO — Mitsubishi Heavy Industries said Thursday that it will formally acquire Bombardier’s regional jet program on June 1, nearly a year after the deal was first announced, but said it will likely write down the entire value of the acquisition.
The CRJ900 aircraft was designed to fly in the most extreme cold temperatures that can handle even the worst conditions in Alaska. Bombardier’s line of business jets is the most comprehensive including the private, luxury aircraft Learjet. CRJ900 High speed cruise: 475 Knots, 547 mph, 881 km/h or 0.83 Mach.
The CRJ program was acquired by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in a deal that closed 1 June 2020. Bombardier continued to manufacture aircraft at the Mirabel facility until the order backlog was completed in December 2020.

Commercial aircraft were assigned numbers in the 700s. The first plane might well have been named the 700, but it just didn’t sound right to the marketing Mad Men of the era. “Seven-oh-seven” sounded sexier — with a ring like “double-oh-seven.” The naming tradition’s been carried down over the decades.
Spirit canceled more than 2,800 flights between July 30 and Aug. 9. The airline blamed the disruptions on bad weather, staffing shortages and technical problems. Spirit is also the latest airline after Southwest and Frontier to warn about weaker bookings, citing an increase in Covid-19 cases.
Final Verdict. Flying on Spirit Airlines is as safe as it can be, just like flying on any other airline. The one issue with Spirit aircraft is the lack of enough space between the seats that may cause some inconvenience for long sitting hours.
The CRJ900s have power outlets between the seats for passengers in Comfort+ and the Main Cabin. While you might have to share and trade on-and-off with a seatmate, having power is still great.
All CRJ Series aircraft utilize a triple redundant hydraulic flight control system that enables the aircraft to fly at speeds up to Mach 0.85 and altitudes up to 41,000 feet. Fly-by-wire is used for flight spoilers, spoilerons and ground spoilers.
