Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has announced Rockwell Collins and Hamilton Sundstrand as suppliers of its Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ). Rockwell Collins will provide primary flight control computers, pilot controls, and the horizontal stabilizer trim system, and Hamilton Sundstrand’s contributions include the electric system, fire detection and suppression system, air management system, auxiliary power unit, and flap/slat actuation system. The MRJ is a 70- to 90-seat class aircraft being developed with the latest technology that will enable operational economy and outstanding cabin comfort, according to the company. MHI expects demand for about 5000 airplanes of the MRJ class in the global regional-jet market over the next 20 years.
