Any Cseries Updates?

Seems like it's been several weeks since I've seen any news on how the program is progressing. As far as the development of the initial frames, there hasn't been much at all in the form of pictures or updates since the media presentation. Clearly, based on BBD's past precedent with this project, secrecy is to be expected, but it's still so strange...almost eerie..that so little information has been leaked to the public just 1 month prior to the month in which its scheduled to fly. Could it possibly still be on schedule? What building/testing stage must the project be at this point for June flight to still be realistic? Do any of our "insiders" have new pictures or details they can share?

Latest update is from April 10:

The first CSeries flight test vehicle (FTV1) is in its final stages of build and is progressing towards the transfer to the flight test phase following the completion of the full powering up of the main electrical distribution system in March 2013. The CSeries aircraft is moving closer to obtaining the safety-of-flight permit following the successful completion of the critical series of structural and system tests. The fly-by-wire system testing continues and to date, tests have shown results as expected. As for the assembly of the other flight test vehicles: systems installations are being completed on FTV2; the wings are being mated on FTV3; and the fuselage on FTV4 has entered into the assembly stage - all of which are advancing to schedule.

The latest appearance on photo/video of a CSeries aircraft is from the media presentation in March.

That is a long time. And I've been wondering the same thing as the OP. They should have completed rigging the aircraft with instruments. And should be working on things like taxi tests now. FTV 2 should also be nearing completion.

CSeries Update from the #RAA13 - Regional Airline Association conference 2013:
- FTV 3 has wing mated to fuselage - final stages of structural assembly
- CSeries is finalizing last structural tests before receiving its safety of flight certificate

Part 4 topic has been archive, so I'll post this here!

I just saw these two tweets go through:

Check out cool pic 1st #CSeries test aircraft rolling her 115 foot wing span through the hangar #RAA2013 #avgeek http://ow.ly/i/23Cdd

#CSeries finalizing last structural tests for safety of flight certificate #avgeek #RAA13 http://ow.ly/i/23CzU3

Image: http://ow.ly/i/23CDp/original

The first picture is interesting, but also might be out of date (?). I see ailerons and elevators are there, as well as the rudders, but no flaps/slats. That said, there seem to be snow outside the hangar, and the technicians surrounding the aircraft are clothed with winter gear, both of which seem amiss for May 7th (I live in Mirabel and there is no more snow the ground) :P

Bombardier used to post images with original EXIF data so that the date an image has been shot was identifiable.
With this picture there's no information on that... But I agree that it is certainly a "dated" picture.
I'd say mid-April, since from last Bombardier updates, pictures were 2/3 weeks old when updated.

I correct myself. I am 99% certain that the picture shared today by Bombardier was shot on March 15, around 10:30pm to be precise. It is identical to the pic shared on March 25 by BBD, just from another angle and taken few minutes earlier...
Same hangar, same configuration of the aircraft (ailerons, rudder position, emergency door open), same snow on ground...
So still no up-to-date pic of the CSeries...
For what we know it could even be already painted....

BBD's PR strategy is interesting...seems to be the polar opposite of Boeing/Airbus' strategy (Boeing especially).
Boeing: "Listen to this guy that we employ talk about how great our new product is, and how it renders anything else obsolete!" (repeat weekly).
BBD: "New airplane, what new airplane? Well it may or may not exist, but you're gonna have to find where we're hiding it first."

One extent annoys me. The other bugs me, leaving me wanting more (perhaps selfishly), and keeps me on edge as a BBD stockholder.

Bombardier does have a very...how can I put this diplomatically...."French Canadian" PR approach...and by that I mean that unlike Boeing flaunting every little rivet that is punched into an airframe, Bombardier tends to wait until the product has been perfected. Besides....being based in Quebec, the province likes to think about itself being it's own country...it only stands to reason they would have an iron curtain-esque approach to PR news.

Case in point...the CRJ-1000 was heavily touted on the Bombardier website and then....nothing. At the time, it seemed odd...I know Air Canada had been visited by the Bombardier sales team pushing the CRJ-1000....then nothing for almost a year. As we know now, it was due to the rudder control issues that grounded flight testing. But, it was still really odd at the time. I think that they want to wait until the CSeries has been perfected before really rolling it out and flashing it to the world.

I believe that the CSeries would be great to replace some of our oldest A320s and A319s...will it happen? Who knows...it would be great to support Bombardier...Air Canada as a Crown corporation had an obvious reason to support Bombardier...(much like Air France supporting Airbus)...and of course as everyone knows...we didn't (thanks to a very impressive finance package from Airbus...hehehe)...

More news from AINonline:

Bombardier Upbeat on CSeries Path to First Flight
Bombardier has reaffirmed its intention to achieve the first flight of its new CSeries airliner next month, with complete airframe static tests (CAST) on track to establish that flight testing can commence safely.
The first test aircraft (FTV1) has moved out of the assembly hall at the Montreal Mirabel site to the flight-test hall to undergo functional testing on its various systems. Bombardier has hung the engines from FTV2 and is now installing systems, while it mates FTV3’s wings to the fuselage; the FTV4 fuselage is mainly complete and assembly of FTV5 has just started.

I am presuming by your past tense that you are referring to back in the day when Air Canada was a crown corporation. It of course isn't now and hasn't been since 1988. I point that out that since some people are still confused by that topic despite 25 passing. But perhaps they still drive an American Motors Pacer, shop at Dominion for groceries and wear Johnny Carson suits from Penny's.

Yes I am...I know that AC hasn't been a Crown corporation since 1988...but a lot of people assume that the company still has government influence...and to a certain degree, there still is some influence.

Quoting JoeCanuck (Reply 17):

if You check the location of Bombardier's hangars at Mirabel, You'll see that they are well isolated, there's not actually too much distance between the assembly hangar and the flight test facility, if they were on opposite sides of the airport I'd understand some pics would come out, but they're like next-door...
And there's the location of Mirabel.... You shall go there on purpose an then, someone may stand there, waiting for the CSeries to appear in-between BBD hangars, like for days and days... and the CSeries went out once (as far as we know now...).
They chose the right place for keeping things "under the radar"...
If Boeing or Airbus take a plane out of a hangar in PAE or TLS, there are so many facilities and people in the surrounding area that one would, almost immediately, notice...

Article on the Montreal Gazette:

Ohio-based Fuller, the chief salesman for the CSeries, said his schedule would take him to Tokyo, Bangkok, Dubai, Bahrain, Cape Town and elsewhere — all before the Paris air show in six weeks.

At the CSeries update (March 7), the same Chet Fuller disclosed that Bombardier is in the "final stages" for 5 additional deals (I'd exclude Porter's conditional order, since it was already one of the undisclosed customers).
And here we have the five locations for those five deals:
- Tokyo - ANA and/or JAL (article on Bloomberg specified those two airlines are specific targets for Bombardier's marketing campaign)
- Bangkok - I'm unaware of any anticipation for airlines based here
- Dubai - flyDubai was among the interested airlines for the 160-seat CS300XCS (eXtra Capacity Seating)
- Bahrain - Gulf Air back in the game? Bahrain Air was considering the CSeries but it declared bankruptcy in February this year.
- Cape Town - South African Airlines or its Express subsidiary... SAA has 11 A319 (8-9 years old) but an all-Airbus fleet, while SAA Express has an all-Bombardier fleet (CR2, CR7 and DH4)

It might be a small order from one of the smaller Thai based airlines. I'm more excited about the stops in Tokyo or Dubai. However, sales will be tough before about six months of flight test data.

Actually, I'd wager that they're going to pitch to Airlink. Airlink's Avro's and ERJ's would be nicely replaced. And the C series would let 4Z (Airlink) really expand beyond its realm.
And, they'd actually be able to finance the purchase, since they're a separate company and not affected by SA's rediculous CEO's.

Another airline that might get pitched to is MN, or Comair.

They ordered 4 737NGs, and they'll need to start replacing their Classic 737s.

Well, by my speculation at least...

Today, Bombardier published its results for the 1st quarter.
The first flight is confirmed to take place "in June".
As usual, Bombardier also published its "Program Status Report" for each airplane family offered, notably, from the CSeries orders, 3 CS100 are missing, which were previously classified as "unspecified customer", in the press release nothing is mentioned, apart from the "firm orders from 9 customers and commitments from 4 additional customers".
That means that the "undisclosed, well established airline" that firmed an order for 3 CS100 +3 options during the 2011 Paris airshow is no longer among the customers.
It was earlier rumored that this airline was Gulf Air, but, when they did not announce any order at the Bahrain airshow last year, all the rumours of a Gulf Air order vanished.
Could it be that it was indeed a Gulf Air order and, given all the troubles the airline is in, they cancelled it?

During the first quarter of the current fiscal year, we terminated and removed from the order backlog an order from an undisclosed customer for three CSeries aircraft due to financial difficulties of the customer. This customer also had options for three additional CSeries aircraft.
