Definition and development work on the Series 700 commenced in 1995 when Bombardier began consultation with a 15-member airline advisory panel on what the airlines wanted in a 70 seat class regional jet. Prior to its January 1997 formal launch the Series 700 was dubbed the CRJ-X.
Construction of the first prototype Series 700 began in late 1998. Rollout and first flight are scheduled for the second quarter of 1999. Certification and initial customer deliveries are planned for the first quarter of 2001.
