Japan's first passenger airliner in half a century made its debut on Wednesday, marking a milestone in the country's long-standing ambitions to build an air transport sector capable of challenging some of the world's key aerospace actors. Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) successfully flew back from Nagoya Airport for 1.5 hours to test Mitsubishi Aircraft's capability to put the 100-seater airplane into operation after three years of delay.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries' Mitsubishi Heavy Industries division, which produced the WWII Zero warrior, hopes that the $47 million local plane will help push Canada's Bombardier as the second-largest manufacturer of smaller passenger planes behind the Brazilian Embraer. MRJ is Japan's first airliner since the 64-seater YS-11 Turbo -Prop went into operation 50 years ago.

Its first MRJ is scheduled for shipment to Japan's largest carriers, ANA Holdings, in June 2017. Finally, Mitsubishi intends to market more than 2,000 planes in the 70 to 90-seater competitively priced minisegment currently managed by Bombardier. To date, it has received 223 firm orders, most recently in January, when Japan Airlines ordered 32 planes.

Up to 200 planes were ordered by the US based SkyWest carrier. "By ordering 100 of these with 100 flight choices, the world's largest local carrier has made it clearly attractive," said Bernie Baldwin, chief executive of Low-Fare Local Airlines, an executive on the short-haul jetlining sector.

"To me, what Mitsubishi has to do now is become a major client in Europe: that's important," he said to Reuters. According to Mitsubishi, thanks to the new generations of Pratt & Whitney motors, a United Technologies affiliate, the MRJ will burn one-fifth less propellant than similar sized planes. Throughout the world, aerospace manufacturers are changing to similar power plants.

According to a declaration made by the airline after the plane landing, the virgin's head had proved its fundamental qualities. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries' stock even climbed 4.4 per cent to a 12-week high. Japan's last effort to become established as a manufacturer of airliners failed. The YS-11 produced by a Mitsubishi Heavy syndicate ended after only 182 planes were made.

However, this program enabled Mitsubishi Heavy and other businesses to build relationships with Boeing, make it an important supplier and partner to the U.S. airframe manufacturer, and help revitalize an aviation and space industries that had been decommissioned after the Second World War. Japan's leading automobile manufacturer, Toyota Motor, and Mitsubishi, the leading retail group, each hold 10 per cent of the shares in the MRJ group.

When Mitsubishi bought its 47 million dollar plane, the company entered the aviation world.
