Bombardier Leaves Commercial Aircraft Market

I just saw this on the news: Bombardier is selling the CRJ programme to Mitsubishi.

This was Bombardier’s last commercial aircraft series they owned, as they recently sold both the C-Series and the Q-series aircraft programmes to Airbus and De Havilland Canada, respectfully. I personally think this is very sad, as Bombardier aircraft have always had a soft spot in me, due to the frequency with which I fly them.

Mitsubishi currently manufactures their own MRJ series aircraft, and the CRJ programme will add to their portfolio.

Rip CRJs. the first aircraft i flown in FSX and IF Global.

Mitsubishi recently confirmed the acquisition will finalize on June 1, so just less than a month before Bombardier exits the market
