An undisclosed customer in Latin America has signed a purchase agreement for one CRJ700 NextGen special mission aircraft in a deal valued at about $67 million.

The order includes ancillary services and modification work, but Bombardier is not releasing details “at this time”.

Michel Bourgeois, president of Bombardier’s specialized and amphibious aircraft and military aviation training, says the latest order is another sign the NextGen aircraft series is a “platform of choice” in the special mission market.
