Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has stated that it will hold a “rollout ceremony” for the first completed Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) on October 18th. The ceremony will take place at manufacturing facilities in Nagoya, Japan. Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation said in July it had mounted the Pratt & Whitney PW1200G geared turbofan (GTF) engine onto the first MRJ prototype. Last year the company postponed the MRJ’s first flight to the second quarter of 2015. First delivery is being targeted for the second quarter of 2017. Flight testing is expected to take place in both Japan and the US.
