Mitsubishi Regional Jet Completes First Flight

The highly anticipated first flight of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) went off without a hitch earlier this week in Japan.  The flight, which was approximately an hour and a half in duration, reached speeds of up to 174 miles an hour and altitudes of up to 15,000 feet.  GoJet’s parent company, Trans States Holdings (TSH), is the domestic launch customer for the MRJ, with 50 firm orders and another 50 on option.

The MRJ comes in two versions–one that seats 70 passengers and one that seats 90.  Some of the notable features of the MRJ include increased fuel-efficiency, lower noise levels and a spacious interior layout that maximizes passenger customers.
