Fictional repaint depicting PK-GRN, one of Garuda Indonesia's Bombardier CRJ-1000ERs which are operated under the "Explore-jet" brand, alongside with ATR 72 turboprops in their fleet, with the intention of being able to access smaller airports in the Indonesian archipelago.
However, the irony is that the CRJ-1000ER actually takes about the same runway length as a Boeing 737-800 for its operations, and therefore was deemed quite infeasible for shorter runway operations, coupled with the fact that CRJ's cabin is deemed too small for regular Indonesian passengers. The procurement of Garuda's Bombardier CRJ-1000ERs are actually mired with controversy as well, as the airline was being investigated alongside Bombardier for bribery scandal and corruption with the former's former CEO, Emirsyah Satar. The airline announced it will stop the operation of their "Explore-jet" fleet on June 2022, with all of the CRJs being returned to the lessors and the ATRs being passed down to its low-cost subsidiary, Citilink.
ADSimulations only has the -900 and -700 variants as of now, but I'm definitely hoping that they will (or they are) working on the -1000 anytime soon. When it comes out, I will definitely buy the model and adapt this livery for it, as well as making other registrations.
Installation is simple, simply drag and drop "Garuda Indonesia PK-GRN" into your ADSimulations CRJ-900 liveries folder.
