Bombardier CRJ900


The Bombardier Canadair Regional Jet CRJ-900LR is a popular twin engine regional jet with a capacity of 76 to 90 passengers which had its maiden flight in 2001. The CRJ-900LR is a stretched version of the CRJ-700 with longer fuselage, extended range (1553 NM) and increased maximum takeoff weight (38.3 t) to carry up to 10.2 t of payload. The General Electric CF34-8C51 turbofan engines of the CRJ-900LR each produce 64.5 kN thrust and allow the CRJ to cruise at FL410 (12500 m) and fly as fast as Mach 0.82 or 470 KTAS (870 km/h).
