MHI: "MRJ MUSEUM" to Open on November 30 at Aircraft's Development and Manufacturing Site
- Visitors Will Experience the MRJ's Cutting-edge Technologies -

TOKYO, Sept 29, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - On November 30 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) will hold the grand opening of the "MRJ MUSEUM," an exhibition venue dedicated to the MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet), Japan's first passenger jet currently under development applying the full resources of the MHI Group. The new museum is to be located within the MRJ's Final Assembly Hangar (Toyoyama-cho, Nishikasugai-gun, Aichi) at MHI's Nagoya Aerospace Systems Works, the core base for the new aircraft's development and manufacture. Starting November 30, the MRJ MUSEUM will be made accessible to the general public as a facility where they can experience the cutting-edge technologies being incorporated into the MRJ. All visitors will be required to make reservations in advance, with bookings to be accepted starting in late October.

The MRJ MUSEUM will be an exhibition space created on the fifth floor (area: approx. 1,150m2) of the MRJ's Final Assembly Hangar, a new factory located next to an existing facility at the Komaki South Plant. Here, visitors will see full-size mock-ups of the MRJ's fuselage, engines, etc., enabling them to get a true sense of the scale of the new jet. They will also be able to view the MRJ's actual manufacturing process, on the second floor.

In the display zone devoted to the MRJ's technical development, a real-size flight deck and passenger cabin will enable visitors to learn how the new aircraft was designed for operating ease and flying comfort, with Japanese-style design features incorporated throughout. A state-of-the-art video presentation will introduce the cutting-edge technologies adopted in the MRJ: for example, its aerodynamic design based on basic aircraft principles, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and its next-generation GTF ("Geared TurbofanTM") engines offering industry-leading fuel efficiency and emissions and noise reduction.

In the zone dedicated to production features, through use of virtual reality and hands-on access to the actual parts and materials used in the MRJ, visitors will gain an appreciation of the aircraft's superior reliability and safety backed by supreme quality control.

Aichi, along with Gifu, forms the core of what the Japanese Government has designated the "Special Zone to Create Asia's No.1 Aerospace Industry Cluster." In response, the area around Nagoya Airport, home to MHI's Komaki South Plant, is now proactively working to attract businesses relating to the aircraft industry as well as cultural and exhibition facilities. The MRJ MUSEUM constitutes one response to this initiative, and in tandem with the "Aichi Museum of Flight" simultaneously opening nearby, the new facility will give a great boost to the movement to concentrate Chubu, central part of Japan's aerospace industry cluster in this region.
With the opening of the MRJ MUSEUM to the general public, the MHI Group will make important contributions to regional development, furtherance of the aviation industry, education and human resources development.
