The Avro RJ series were upgrades from the BAe-146 series. The RJ variants came in three fuselage lengths, all with glass cockpits and super-efficient FADEC-equipped Allied Signal engines. British Aerospace also planned on offering an RJ115, with extra emergency exits and a higher seat capacity, but none were built before production ended in 2002.
