Mitsubishi SpaceJet

ICAO aircraft code M90
Country Japan
New price USD 47.3 million (2020)

The Mitsubishi SpaceJet (Japanese: 三菱スペースジェット) is a regional jet developed by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (MAC), a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) subsidiary.
MHI first announced the concept in June 2007, then targeting certification for 2012, as the first Japanese airliner since the 1962 NAMC YS-11.
After a delayed development, the maiden flight of the MRJ90 took place on 11 November 2015.
In June 2019, Mitsubishi rebranded the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ, Japanese: 三菱リージョナルジェット) program as the SpaceJet.
As flight testing was longer than expected, service entry was pushed back until development was paused amid the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on aviation.
The airframe is made mainly in aluminium with a carbon fibre composites empennage.
The low-wing twinjet is powered by underwing Pratt & Whitney PW1000Gs, and was the first program to select the geared turbofan.
The M90 (the MRJ90 renamed) should seat 86 to 96, while the smaller MRJ70 was to accommodate 70 to 80 passengers.
The MRJ70 was replaced by the SpaceJet M100, stretched by 1.1 m (3 ft 7 in) to better meet US scope clauses at 76 seats with premium seating.
It is comparable with the Embraer E-Jet E2.
