The Mitsubishi Regional Jet is the first entrant in a new class of higher performance regional aircraft. As the only clean-sheet aircraft for the sub-100 seat category, the MRJ cuts a sharper silhouette than any other jet in its class with a more aerodynamic nose, sleek fuselage and lean wings featuring optimized nacelles.

The man behind the distinct design of the MRJ, many aspects of its interior cabin and its advanced flight deck is Hiroyasu Aruga, a Technical Supervisor & Chief Researcher in Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Research & Innovation Center.
