It won't happen as BBD already said that first delivery to Swiss will be in the first half of 2016 (Q2 I believe).

CSeries competes against the A319/737-700; it should still enter service before the A319neo.

Bombardier CS100 Aircraft Flight Test Program Close to 100 per cent Complete

Quote:

* CS100 function and reliability (F&R) test aircraft starts flights
* F&R testing will include approximately 15 city pairs in Canada and over 20 in the U.S. before moving on to Europe
* C Series flight test vehicles have completed more than 1,000 flights and CS100 aircraft is in final stage of flight testing leading to certification

Congrats to Bombardier, it's now time for Transport Canada, FAA and EASA to issue the Type Certificates!

Notice there are some changes to Air Baltic's livery. The titles are now billboard and the engines appear to painted entirely green instead of 3/4 silver. I kind of wish they kept the silver engines but this livery is sharp as well. I guess Europe will be bustling with CSeries next year.

I think airBaltic is a great choice as CS300 first operator. I hear good things about them and the CS300 will be perfect as replacement for their well-used B733s. IIRC, the CS300 will have 148 seats in C/Y config, perfect for scheduled and charter flights that airBaltic operate now. Great livery too on the CS300.

I think SWISS using their CS100 on short business-heavy flights and airBaltic using their CS300 on long leisure flights will show off the CSeries' capabilities in a great way.

As much I think that you are right with your statement, I just wish that one of the USA airlines would jump on board with the C-Series. I really think the C300 would make a great replacement for the A319 for UA. And AC could replace the E-190's with the C-100. Now if only those two companies would agree with me. LOL

Is AirBaltic losing any seats transitioning to the CS300 from the 737? Moving to the CSeries will definitely save airbaltic some $$$ on their fuel bills.

At 148 seats they will have only 1 seat less that their current 733s which have 149 seats in all-Y config

Edit: I stand corrected as their website shows their 733s are configured in either 142, 144 or 146 seats. Hence they'll gain a few seats with the CS300

Air Baltic 733s have 144 seats and 735s have 120. So it's a pretty good upgrade in seats. The CS300 will have 148!

Good update from the chief! Hopefully with the programme completed, the performance numbers firmed up it'll lead to some orders now. Good luck to BBD in Dubai this week!

Question - what does BBD do next now that the plane is now finished testing and by all accounts is certified? Is it to get production processes tied up and search for further efficiencies in the programme? Will there be further certification requirements for Europe, Asia etc?

Your flight test program isn't the only thing needed for certification - if the required documentation isn't done, you aren't over the line yet.


Its **getting** there... but not quite all the way there yet.

Wish they would have opted to stay under the high density config and maxed out at 145. Still a straight replacement on 733s. And gain on 735s. Better for passengers. And probably a slightly cheaper airplane for them. They'll already be saving money on the reduced CASM. And a lot of benefits for their airport neighbours from reduced noise and emissions!

Bombardier Celebrates the Completion of its CS100 Aircraft’s Certification Flight Test Program

Quote:

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that the CS100 aircraft has completed its certification flight testing, subject to Transport Canada’s final review and acceptance. Concurrently, Bombardier is finalizing the submission of the remaining Type Certificate documentation for Transport Canada approval.

“We are executing to plan and are in the final stage before obtaining the CS100 Type Certificate from Transport Canada,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “I heartily congratulate the many employees, suppliers and customers that have worked together to bring us all to this important milestone.”

“The completion of the CS100 aircraft’s flight test program and the aircraft’s pending certification by Transport Canada fill us with a great deal of satisfaction and pride,” said Rob Dewar, Vice President, C Series Aircraft Program, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “It is also very gratifying to see the CS100 aircraft conducting its route proving exercises and touching down at airports across Canada and in the U.S. We have already started to see increased excitement and interest in many communities as our all-new C Series aircraft – the first new aircraft produced for the 100- to 150-seat segment in the last three decades – prepares to enter service with SWISS in the first half of 2016.”

Since starting route proving, on November 7, 2015, the CS100 aircraft has made stops in Mirabel, QC; Toronto, ON; Montréal, QC; Windsor, ON; Thunder Bay, ON; Moncton, NB; Halifax, NS; St-John’s, NL; Calgary, AB; and Regina, SK. In the U.S., the aircraft has visited Denver, CO; Wichita, KS; Boise, ID; Chicago, IL; Minneapolis, MN; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Dallas-Fort Worth, TX; New Orleans, LA; Nashville, TN; Seattle, WA and Raleigh/Durham, NC. The route-proving flights, which are being conducted using typical airline flight routings and operational procedures, are scheduled to include approximately 15 city pairs in Canada and 20 in the U.S, before moving on to Europe.

Bombardier workforce in Belfast could play bigger role in CSeries

Quote:
And it could end up making other parts for the over-budget aircraft. Parts of the fuselage are currently made in China.

Economist Andrew Webb, managing director of Webb Advisory, said with Northern Ireland's high quality of work, it would be "feasible" that Belfast produces more parts of the CSeries jets.

"If Bombardier is trying to save costs, and how its global operations function, it would be entirely sensible to look at that (adding additional CSeries roles to Belfast).

Interesting, while I don't hold the belfast tellylaugh in high regard (or even medium regard!) as a newspaper, I also fully don't expect the Chinese to be able to produce the barrels.

Belfast has already made them for all the FTVs and as far as I know, every aircraft in the assembly line at the moment. I think the adapted plan was first 20 or so in Belfast then out in China - but persistent rumours are that all of it will have to be done in Belfast.

What is BBD getting out of China anyway? At least Airbus got a few hundred A320 orders in exchange for their FAL. Where are the 300 Chinese CSeries orders? I say, move it all to Belfast.

If we go though your logic, airlines from Ireland/UK airlines should order few CSereis aircraft as well.

It truely be good for one of these 3 airlines to make the jump and order the CSeries. Both JetBlue and Air Canada have aging E190's. UA have older A319's that the C-300 could replace and would be a perfect replacement a/c for the 319's that are getting near end of their life cycle I'm guessing, based on my trip on one of them last month out of ORD. It was the first time on a 319 that I thought to myself that it was louder than a 737, and I was in front of the wing. It would be really wonderful if all ordered the CSeries but I know I only dreaming if I expect that to happen. But know with the funding in a better situation for BBD I hope potential customers come out of hiding and order good number of a/c.

Quoting Quantos (Reply 132):
Is 150 hours all it takes for F&R? I'd have thought it would be longer than that.

I think that they have finished the first phase

What is BBD getting out of China anyway?

Same thing they get out of Morocco and Mexico. Nothing. No orders, no interest, just cheap labor for a shrinking backlog of parts to produce.

Ethiopian Airlines to order 10 narrow-body planes, eyeing CSeries or E2-CEO

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/...51123

Or SSJ100, or Comac, MRJ, or.....name all 100 seaters here:

From TFA:

He said in an interview that he is visiting the 100-seater CS100 at Bombardier's Mirabel factory on Tuesday, but is also considering aircraft made by the company's rivals.

"I'm also looking at E2, the Russians, the Japanese, the Chinese," he said.

Ethiopian Airlines also has 14 firm orders for A350 aircraft between now and 2025. The carrier is looking at ordering 10 more aircraft, and is weighing B777 and A350 planes.

A video about how they did the noise testing for the C-Series was released:

It doesn't give the numbers but show's how they collected the data. Also some great video of the C-Series flying around Redmond Oregon.
