Initial Avro RJX details, Issue 1 Sep/Oct 1998
Following the divorce from ATR and cancellation of AI(R) Jet, BAe
Regional Aircraft is considering a package to upgrade the Avro RJ to
the RJ-X. This comes just six years after the BAe 146 was upgraded to
the Avro RJ. The Avro RJ initially sold well, but orders have slowed
since the arrival of the CRJ-700 and other twin-engined jets.
