Flying the MRJ: a Pilot's Aircraft

Posted by The MRJ Team on Jul 17, 2018, 12:20:00 PM


With best-in-class aerodynamics, a clean-sheet design and a new avionics suite, the Mitsubishi Regional Jet is an aircraft prepared to shape the future of regional aviation.

Thanks to these advantages, the MRJ operates more efficiently, quietly and comfortably, providing a piloting experience no other regional jet can match.

“It has all the protections of a new generation aircraft,” says Captain Martin Trout, lead test pilot for MRJ FTA-4. “It’s a dream to fly.”

As the MRJ program has amassed more than 2,000 hours of flight time, MRJ test pilots have come to appreciate the unique experience of flying the MRJ — from take-off to landing. In this video, the MRJ test pilots discuss why they love flying the MRJ and how the aircraft is poised to usher in a new era of regional travel.

“It’s the kind of office that every pilot dreams of,” says Captain Steve Long, test pilot for MRJ FTA-1. “It’s a vice-less, good-flying airplane.”
