ambition to sell more than 2,000 aircraft in a competitive MARKET segment. Developed by a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries that includes Toyota Corp as a shareholder, the $42-million regional jet, with just under 100 seats, is Japan's second bid to break into the commercial Aircraft MARKET. 

The first made in Japan passenger Aircraft in nearly four decades is being unveiled Saturday as its maker pushes into the booming regional jet sector with an eye to taking on industry giants Embraer and Bombardier.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, a military contractor best known for its Zero World War II fighter, is set to pull back the curtain on its new Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ), a fuel efficient, next generation Aircraft that claims to offer more passenger comfort with lower operating costs.
