The MRJ programme: delayed but not defeated

Mitsubishi’s MRJ90 programme has been delayed by five years and the company is now scheduled to deliver its first aircraft in mid-2018. Delays are commonplace with all new aircraft programmes but lengthy delays can be ill afforded while the MRJ faces stiff competition from Embraer with its E2 aircraft which is on schedule. The Ishka View is that MRJ’s programme still has plenty of promise but any more material delays will hurt future aircraft sales for the Japanese manufacturer.
