Bombardier is undertaking a program review of its CRJ.  Having sold off the water bomber, C Series and the Q400, the CRJ lives as something of a commercial orphan.  Bombardier has now decided to compress its aerospace business further, selling off key aerostructures assets.  A new division, Bombardier Aviation, will now house the business jets and the CRJ.
