Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has received Type Inspection Authorization (TIA) from the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) for the company’s Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) program.
This authorization allows Mitsubishi Aircraft to begin certification flight tests for its MRJ 90, first commercial jet from Japan. The MRJ program currently has a fleet of flight test aircraft at its flight test center in Moses Lake, Washington, USA, and expects to begin certification flight testing early in 2019, the company said in a statement last week.
According to Andrew Telesca, Head of Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation’s Certification Management Office, the program is undergoing a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety review to support the FAA’s Letter of Authorization, which he expects prior to the start of certification flight testing.
