Development

The wide fuselage of the Challenger suggested early on to Canadair officials that it would be straightforward to stretch the aircraft to provide more seats, and there was a plan for a Challenger 610E, which would have had seating for 24 passengers. It didn't happen, the effort being cancelled in 1981, but the idea didn't go away, either.


In 1987, studies began for a much more ambitious stretched configuration, leading to the formal launch of the Canadair Regional Jet program in the spring of 1989. The "Canadair" name was retained despite the fact that Bombardier had bought out the company. The first of three development machines for the initial CRJ-100 performed its first flight on 10 May 1991, though one of the prototypes was lost in a spin mishap in July 1993, The type obtained certification in late 1992, with initial delivery to customers late in that year.


The CRJ-100 was stretched 5.92 meters (19 feet 5 inches), with fuselage plugs fore and aft of the wing, and featured two more emergency exit doors, plus a reinforced and modified wing. Typical seating was 50 passengers, the maximum load being 52 passengers. The CRJ-100 featured a Collins ProLine 4 avionics suite, Collins weather radar, GE CF34-3A1 turbofans with 41.0 kN (4,180 kgp / 9,220 lbf), new wings with extended span, more fuel capacity, and of course improved landing gear to handle the higher weights. It was followed by the CRJ-100ER subvariant with 20% more range, and the CRJ-100LR subvariant with 40% more range than the standard CRJ-100.


Variants

Several models of the CRJ have been produced, ranging in capacity from 40 to 86 passengers.

Like the -100, the -200 has 50 passenger seats, two pilot seats, one flight attendant jumpseat, and one pilot observer seat. The normal airline configuration is 2+2 seating in rows 1 through 12 and 2+0 in row 13, with the lavatory taking up the right side of row 13. There is also an option to add a second flight attendant jumpseat at the rear of the cabin.


Pinnacle Airlines operates a 44-seat version with closets in the forward and aft areas of the passenger cabin. These modifications are designed to allow operations under their major airline contract "scope clause" which restricts major airlines' connection carriers from operating equipment carrying 50 or more passengers to guard against usurpation of Air Line Pilots Association & Allied Pilots Association pilots' union contract. Similarly, Comair's fleet of 40-seat CRJ-200s were sold at a discounted price to discourage Comair from purchasing the less expensive and smaller Embraer 135.

CRJ-900

Stretched 86-seat version, with the GE CF-348C5 engines (13,360 lb thrust with APR) and added leading edge slats. Max GTOW is 82,500 pounds.The airplane is loosely based on the CRJ-200 series with a few major improvements. The environmental packs have a target temperature instead of a hot-cold knob. the cabin has a recirc fan which aids in cooling and heating. The engines are controlled by FADEC digital engine control instead of control cables and a fuel control unit. The cabin floor has been lowered 2 inches which gains outward visibility from the windows in the cabin. The APU is a General Electric unit which supplies much more air to the AC packs and has higher limits for starting and altitude usage. The wingspan is longer, the tail is redesigned with more span and anhedral. In typical service the CRJ-900 can cruise 8-10,000 ft higher with a slightly higher fuel burn and an average true airspeed of 450-500 knots, a significant improvement over its predecessor. FADEC is the acronym for Full Authority Digital Engine Control. ...


Bombardier will decide whether to launch the proposed CRJ-900X stretch (89 to 100 seats) by the end of 2006 and it is partly dependent on securing additional customers.

It sits in Tucson, AZ with only the flight test and ferry time on it. The CRJ-900 competes loosely with the Embraer 175, and according to Bombardier is more efficient per seat-mile.
