Mitsubishi have decided to cancel the SpaceJet program. The program which was launched in 2008 was originally due to be delivered in 2013, however due to lack of resources and uncertaintaies around covid, the program has suffered heavy delays.

Despite heavy investment from the government in what was seen as an attempt to revitalise the Japanese aviation sector, the project now looks to have been cancelled.

5 aircraft were produced, with the test phase well underway. In total the aircraft had received 207 orders and 150 options, predominantly from Mesa and SkyWest as well as All Nippon and Japan Airlines.

Yes, sad news. I was looking forward to seeing another type.

The prolonged delays aside, I do wonder what made them decide to axe it with over 200 firm orders.
