Montréal, September 27, 2002

Bombardier Aerospace today announced that it is taking steps to adjust its cost structure to the current business environment. Adjustments include a reduction in its staffing and production levels at all of its sites.

A total of 1,980 employees, including 20 per cent of management, will be laid off at Bombardier Aerospace facilities in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, beginning in October 2002.

In addition, Bombardier will temporarily cutback production of some of its aircraft programs at its sites in Belfast, Montréal, Toronto and Wichita. The reduced production levels affect the following manufacturing work. They will take effect over the following weeks:

· In Belfast, business aircraft component manufacturing will be affected;
· In Montréal, production of the Bombardier Challenger® 604 business jet will be reduced over a four-month period;
· In Toronto, all manufacturing work will be interrupted for six to eight weeks, beginning in late November, impacting the Bombardier Q* Series turboprop aircraft and the Bombardier Global family of business aircraft production lines. Some 1,600 employees will be affected during this period;
· In Wichita, production of the Bombardier Learjet® 45 and Learjet 60 will be interrupted for a period of four months beginning in December, affecting some 500 employees. The Bombardier Challenger 300 and Bombardier Learjet 40 development programs and entry-into-service schedules are not impacted by these measures.
