I posted a similar topic before if any of you recall in regards to airbus. This time, upon the new release of the CRJ-1000 for BritAir, what reason did Canadair-Jet have for skipping over the 800? Not to mention -300-500. this is not a criticism of canadair under no circumstances.


From the airport with love

Well the -700 seats about 70 passengers, the -900 seats about 90. Who knows why they started with -200, but the -440 they made for NW seated 44 passengers.

They didn't, there was a -100 and the Challenger before that.



Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

I believe the -800 series is the "corporate shuttle" variation of the RJ. A commuter/corporate jet hybrid. I know the -850 is anyway.

Is the "-600" series the CL6? I know Air Wisconsin call their CRJs the Canadiar CL-6 aircraft and not a CR200..


Aiming High and going far..

I don't know about the CL6 but I do know the CL60 is the Challenger 600/601.

I knew about the Challenger, but I forget about the -100. Thanks for the reminder, I guess the -200 makes sense then too in the grand scheme of things.

All about marketing.

Here is the family tree:

100: Original CRJ100. Basically, based on Challenger 601, with a major update (systems and avionics) and fuselage extensions.
200: CRJ200 better performing engines (CF34-3B), and other details (weights, parts, etc)
300: Challenger 300 Corporate jet (no actual relation to Challenger family of airplanes, only for marketing puposes)
400: CRJ440. Floor plan for 44 pax, in response to scope clauses in effect at the time.
500: never used yet, other than unverified rumors in the mid 2000s about a CRJ200 format based on the CRJ700 engines and wing.
600: Challenger 600/601/604/605 The original corporate jet that spawned it all.
700: CRJ700/701/705 Updated technology Regional Jets for the growing markets and needs(wing, engines, avionics, etc). 705 is a reduced seating 900
800: Challenger 850/870/890 Corporate conversions of CRJs. Based on CR2/7/9. Current 850 has notable differences from CRJ, exit configuration, fuel capacity, baseline equipment, etc.
900: CR7 with fuselage extensions, upgraded systems when needed.
1000: CR9 with Fuselage extensions, slightly bigger wing, carbon brakes, rudder-by-wire, introduction of Collins Proline21 avionics systems. Stop gap measure while bringing the C-Series to the market.



if your flight goes MX in YUL, I might be called to fix it!

Thanks for the list ChallengerDan! I look forward to experiencing the NG windows in the CRJ's...quite an improvement! It's too bad they couldn't be a retrofit!

You mean the CRJ will finally have a real flat-panel LCD cockpit? That would be cool.

Great list, thanks for the info!

Technically, the CRJs go by these designations:

CL-600-2D15 (CRJ-705)
CL-600-2D24 (CRJ-900)
CL-600-2E25 (CRJ-1000)
