Japan’s First Commercial Jet Production Museum

Aichi Prefecture has long been at the forefront of development and production of Japan’s aerospace industry.

One of the world’s greatest fighter aircraft, the formidable Mitsubishi Zero was built in Aichi, as were a number of other wartime aircraft. Many of Japan’s Self Defense Forces’ jet and turboprop aircraft including helicopters are built and maintained in Aichi. Major components including the main module of the International Space Station, satellite launch rockets and other space hardware is also tagged “Made in Aichi”.

Another project fast gaining the attention of the aviation industry is Japan’s first commercial jet airliner project, the former MRJ, (Mitsubishi Regional Jet) now known as the SpaceJet project. The SpaceJet is a twin-engine regional jet with seating for 70 to 90 passengers. Offering a range of over 3,500km and a top speed of 905km/h, the SpaceJet was first flown in November of 2015.

To celebrate this exciting project, Mitsubishi and their partners have established a special museum dedicated to the technical development and manufacturing of the exciting Mitsubishi regional SpaceJet aircraft program.

MRJ Museum

MRJ MUSEUM, Development and Manufacturing Site

To celebrate this exciting project, Mitsubishi and their partners have established a special museum dedicated to the design, technical development and manufacturing of the impressive Mitsubishi regional SpaceJet aircraft program. Located within the former Nagoya International Airport complex, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Nagoya Aerospace Systems Works’ Komaki Plant, the MRJ MUSEUM is an exhibition space created on the fifth floor of the Final Assembly Hangar, an approx. 1,150m2 production facility. Here, visitors can see full-size mock-ups of the new aircraft’s fuselage, engines, wings and other parts enabling them to get a sense of the scale of the new jet. On the second floor, visitors can view the aircraft’s actual manufacturing processes.

The Display Zone explains the technical development of the SpaceJet. A full-scale flight deck and passenger cabin allows visitors to discover first-hand just how the new aircraft was designed with operating ease and flying comfort in mind, complete with Japanese-style design features incorporated throughout. Video presentations introduce the cutting-edge technologies adopted, including CDF, Computational Fluid Dynamics, and its next-generation GTF Geared Turbofan engines, which provide the aircraft with industry-leading fuel efficiency and reduced emissions and noise levels.

In the Production Zone, Virtual Reality and hands-on access to actual parts and materials used give visitors an appreciation and understanding of the aircraft's superior reliability and safety backed by Japanese quality control.

Visitors are required to make reservations in advance to see this exciting facility.

Aichi Museum of Flight & Airport Walk Nagoya Shopping Complex

Aichi Prefecture in conjunction with neighboring Gifu forms the core of what the Japanese Government has designated an Aerospace Industry Special Cluster Zone, a project at creating Asia's leading aerospace industry center. As such, the area around Nagoya Airport is working to attract aerospace businesses as well as create cultural and exhibition facilities. For this reason, nearby the MRJ MUSEUM are the popular Airport Walk Nagoya shopping complex and the fascinating Aichi Museum of Flight featuring displays of retired civil and military prop planes, jets and helicopters, along with a range of entertaining and educational aeronautical attractions including flight simulators. The Airport Walk Nagoya center was created by redeveloping the former airports’ international terminal buildings into a shopping, dining and entertainment complex, complete with a movie theater.

Keep your eyes on the skies and your finger on the pulse of Japan’s aerospace industry leader, Aichi Prefecture!
