Looks like it is official.
I used to work for FedEx in Mississauga, and would often go to the MHI assembly building nowhere near the airport (on Meadowvale Blvd at Mississauga Rd.). I remember walking in one day to see a full size, fully assembled (I think) CRJ or Global Express. As of today, it shows as "SPP Canada Airc...Jump to post

I figured someone would have posted this by now. Interesting to read, but as an enthusiast I can't comment on too much otherwise...

No official announcement, anyone have an idea how many jets it could be for?
She had PTSD from her military service. You're right. It *is* about society, in this case a society that should be understanding and lenient towards someone with this condition.

For the E2/C-series, orders are a must (in particular for the E2, the c-series had a nice Air Baltic top off which brings orders on paper over 400, giving some confidence as that is an important economy of scale threshold). MRJ is on hold. :cry: The NEO has a classy problem, its sold too well. Airb...Jump to post

Updated to 10 :worried: . Incredible restraint by the arresting officer... you should be easily able to find a YouTube or news clip of it.

Embraer is in trouble. You cant do anything when a 80mi airplane is legally sold for 20mi. Do you honestly not understand anything about the sales process or anything to do with this situation?

Take a look at "cseries_fanpage" on Instagram. A photo was posted today showing 3x (appear to be completed) Swiss and 2x Korean jets. You cant see if they have engines or not, but they all look very close to being finished.Jump to post
It’s not really out of nowhere...they were part of the world tour a few weeks ago. I guess seeing the plane on home turf was the final confirmation it is what they wanted. That was before the Airbus announcement. I wonder if the announcement afterwards and A320 purchases at this time are all tied in...Jump to post
I now see the CS500 being developed and the A319neo being effectively dead. This is a coup for Airbus...as they can market the CSeries. The A319NEO and -7 MAX were already effectively dead. ;) This just puts enough life into the CS300 to make it thrive. I'm alternating opinions on the CS500 (will i...Jump to post
Looks like the Canadian government might want to show Airbus some gratitude for saving Canadian jobs by purchasing some Eurofighter Typhoons (Airbus joint venture). I was thinking is, but I'll put my money on A330MRTT first (and sooner than late) and Bombardier gets the new FWSAR service and suppor...Jump to post
Thank you and everyone else for the replies. I've (tried) to read most of the 19 pages and other threads for ages now. Pretty complex stuff. Your answers to 2 and 3 above are interesting...
Not sure how the import duties would work for leasing deals. Let's say BBD sets up a leasing unit JV with DL in one tax heavens. The Leasing company takes ownership of the aircraft as price agreed in the original deal. Now what if the Leasing unit "Leases" the aircraft $1/month which woul...Jump to post
As expected, there is a flurry of fighting over date of sale... Do you mean fighting over whether or not the sale has actually occurred yet (commitment date vs. contract date vs. delivery date?), and therefore whether dumping could even have taken place yet? Funny that Boeing says it doesn't care l...Jump to post
Just a theory, I believe this is part of an action to drive Bombardier from the marketplace of passenger airlines. In the process, the end game would be the selling off of the different divisions where Boeing would love to buy the C-Series as a means to gain a new NSA program on the cheap due to th...Jump to post
I wonder how much Bombardier was going to shrink the CS100 for United. Forgive me if I am wrong, they aren't going to shrink it. It's a "lite" version like Delta bought, basically a standard CS100 but with range restrictions placed on it. If they want the full range then they pay more. I ...Jump to post
Yes, the Coast Guard is most certainly a part of the military. I'm continually amazed that people don't know that, but lots of folks don't seem to. No, the USCG is NOT part of the military.

I just read on the Globe & Mail business website that the F-18 order will not be taken up by the Canadian military. Good-I hope they can explain the loss of a $5 billion order to their stakeholders in favourable way. That's interesting... Without getting too off topic... https://sencanada.ca/co...Jump to post
Certainly Saudi Gulf has been pressured into doing this by their government. Why in earth would an airline that only opened up 7 months ago and serves 3 cities with four 320s order wide bodies?

I see this as protectionism under a different guise. Boeing had no competing product. :checkmark: Absolutely. Honestly, I'm not sure if Boeing has truly thought this one through. Imagine if BBD goes under. If Boeing is seen as being a factor in such a situation, there's going to be blowback. If you...Jump to post
People keep calling them subsidies; money which BBD has received from the Québec and federal governments. They're not subsidies, they're loans. Of course, one can say all they want about whether they think BBD will ever pay off these loans, but the fact remains that they are loans, not gifts. I can...Jump to post

I don't think the speed on station for a SAR event is what the concern was...but the ability to get there quickly. Don't forget the SAR area provided by Trenton is absolutely massive.

Great reply! That said, my next question is labour. Does your 20-30% domestic content include labour? Or where would that factor in?

1.00 CAD = 0.707070 USD
Canadian Dollar ↔ US Dollar

I don't have a link to it, but the government put out a quick bid for carriers to reply with rates, availability, etc. I believe this was due within a week so they could start moving people.
