“The 1st flight test aircraft of the MRJ started mid-speed taxiing tests on the runway of the Nagoya Airport (Toyoyama-cho, Aichi Prefecture) in early October to confirm braking and direction control steering.
The MRJ gained flight approval on October 29 following the pre-flight review board by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
Moving forward, high-speed taxiing tests and evaluations will be performed in preparation for the first flight.” (Source: MRJ Newsletter Vol 6 – Octobre 2015)
