Aerosoft has released its long-awaited extension to their Bombardier CRJ-550/700 aircraft with the 900/1000 variants for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The Bombardier/Mitsubishi CRJ aircraft flies regional routes all around the globe with airlines such as Air Canada, Iberia Regional, China Eastern Airlines and Air Dolomiti.
The CRJ 900 and 1000 variants first saw service in 2005 and 2010 respectively, with Air Canada Jazz and Brit Air being the launch customers. The CRJ900 is capable of carrying between 76-90 passengers which is a stretched version of the CRJ700 and cruises between 8-10 thousand feet higher than its predecessor which although results in a higher fuel burn, it allows the aircraft to fly much faster. The 1000 variant of the CRJ can carry up to 104 passengers with its 10 extra feet of length compared to the 900 and has a maximum range of over 1600 nautical miles.
