It looks as if the Airbus concept is taking as the CSeries will have :
-Electrical flight controls with flight enveloppe protection
|Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 3):|
How realistic is it to put the CFM56-7 on the C-Series, the lowest rating ones that power the 736 and 73G? They are pretty economical, aren't they?
Not many other options to choose from, it seems...
|Quoting Lightsaber (Reply 6):|
The C-Series needs a *much* more economical engine than the CFM56 in order to compete in their niche. Pratt is offering to develop a "clean sheet" new design. GE refused (but can always reconsider). RR is probably too busy with the Trent 1000, 1700, etc. to try a clean sheet design. (And a ~24 to 27k engine would be too small for a tripple spool).

It looks like an Embraer 170/5 with the RJ7 winglets....
