May 7, 2013 – Falko Regional Aircraft announced today that its Avro RJ family of jets has achieved full transport category Type Certification from Transport Canada. This represents a significant development for the Avro RJ in a market where the Avro RJ and its unique operating characteristics can fulfill a number of roles.

Falko has identified Canada as a market with great potential for the Avro RJ. The aircraft has proven capability in a variety of roles including Air Tanker and Fly in Fly Out (FIFO) mining support operations. These markets are experiencing significant growth in Canada and, with the Type now certified, Falko expects to see increasing numbers of Avro RJs in operation in Canada.

Stuart Begg, VP Sales and Marketing said:

“The Avro RJ is ideally suited to the Canadian market especially in the North where there are significant opportunities to serve local communities that are reliant on air travel. We are extensively promoting the RJ in Canada and there are great opportunities for the aircraft in the country. We continue to invest in the product and now that this important Type Certificate award has been achieved, we anticipate that unpaved runways trials will commence in the near future. This will allow Canadian Avro RJ operators to replicate the successful remote operations capability already established in Australia, Africa and Asia. Depending on market demand we are also exploring the development of a combi variant to further enhance the product in Canada.”
