Flight tests with the first test aircraft of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ), scheduled to be carried out on 27 and 28 August, were aborted when anomalies were detected in the signals generated by sensors monitoring air management systems.
Two air management systems, left and right, are installed in the aircraft, and in this instance, a malfunction was detected in sensors monitoring the air management systems on the left side.
The air management systems operated properly during the flights, however, Mitsubishi made the decision to delay the ferry flight until the MRJ could fly in a perfect condition. The OEM is now completing an inspection and following all necessary measures.
