Mitsubishi Aircraft announced a new operational plan amid the current COVID-19 crisis.
The company’s priority will be on obtaining type certification for the SpaceJet M90. In order to maximize the efficiency of type certification flight tests in the future, this fiscal year, Mitsubishi Aircraft will focus on re-organizing, improving the current design at the aircraft-level, and validating data earned by over 3,900 hours of flight test.
To achieve the above organizational changes and operational plan, Mitsubishi Aircraft President Takaoki Niwa will continue to manage the overall business of the company. As before, Keisuke Masutani, Director of the Board, will continue to assist with corporate management, and Hiroyuki Tatsuoka, Director of the Board, will support the overall development and technology.
In order to contribute to the development of the aviation industry in Japan and to develop Japan’s first commercial jet, Mitsubishi Aircraft will focus on certification and will continue to move forward.
