After acquiring Canadair (and thus the technology of Challenger jets) Bombardier Aerospace started manufacturing a family of business jets. These passenger jets are relatively small, they were designed for comfortable and effective short-distance flights as regional airliners.
The CRJ type made its maiden flight in 1991. It was first used by Lufthansa in 1992; by 2008 nearly 1,200 were sold.
The parameters of the CRJ200 cannot compete with the dimensions of large airliners but this was not the designers´ aim. The jet is about 27 m (88.58 ft) long and 6 m (19.69 ft) high, with a wingspan of 21 m (68.9 ft). The wing surface area is less than 48 m² (516.7 ft²).
The aircraft was designed with seats and a pleasant interior for a maximum of 50 passengers to provide comfort during short- and medium-distance flights, even though the passenger cabin is only 12 m (39.37 ft) long and 2 m (6.56 ft) wide on average.
The crew consists of 3 members, two pilots and one flight attendant.
The CRJ200 is powered by two jet engines. These are placed behind the wings, at the back of the fuselage. The General Electric CF34-3B1 engines produce a 41 kN (9,217 lbf) thrust each.
The cruise speed of the jet is between 780 and 860 km/h (484.7 and 534.4 mph). Its cruise altitude is about 11,000 m (36,090 ft). Its maximum range, with average fuel consumption (1,230 l/h or 324.9 gal/h) is about 2,500 km (1,553 mi).
This small jet requires a 2 km (1.2 mi) long runway for takeoff and 1.5 km (0.9 mi) for landing.
