Is there such thing as a CRJ-100?

Hello fellow community members! I have always asked and wondered about Bombardier’s CRJ series and why I have really never heard about a CRJ-100. I have flown on every CRJ variant unless there is a so-called -100. This is one of my reasons for wanting to know. I do know that Bombardier has made a Callenger 604 which looks like a CRJ-100, but just as a corporate jet.

I do have a picture that shows what a Challenger 604 looks like.⬇️


It looks rather “stubbed” and doesn’t really need a window exit like the CRJ-200:

But this is just what I see. Tell me what you think of this and if Bombardier hasn’t made a CRJ-100, should they?

I am just comparing the size and similarity of the aircraft. Plus I didn’t know if Bombardier made a -100.

They seem to do it fairly interchangeably with the -200ER…

Ohh ok! Also, @JT_Playz, use this for specs and more info on the CRJ-100.

The CRJ100 is simply a 200 with worse specs and I think worse engines. Air Canada flies one to St. Louis pretty often although they send a 200 every once an a while.

Ok cool. Didn’t know. I always thought it would be “stubbed” more than a -200. Thanks!👍

Yes there is CRJ100,Rwandair operates them…

Nice! I’ll search up a pic and see what they look like compared to a -200.

EDIT: It does kind of look like a -200. Just want to know if there are any differences. :)

The wikipedia article says the CRJ 100 and 200 are the same thing. Except the 200 performs better thanks to different engines, so Bombardier discontinued production of the 100
