Very pertinent point!!! Does anybody know?

Strong signals that Bombardier’s first production CS100 - in a paint hangar now - may be wearing a widget by tomorrow.— Jon Ostrower (@jonostrower) April 27, 2016

What is the status of production numbers 50007, 50008, and 50009 and who has these?
|Quoting LSZH34 (Reply 41):|
It was rumored that the first LX CS100(HB-JBA) including painting would be demonstrated. Any sign of her?
|Quoting dash9 (Reply 40):|
As a shareholder I have visited the Cseries and CRJ FAL today. Pictures were not allowed but I managed to note a few things... Here's the status on the CS birds to the best of my knowledge:
MSN50001 thru 50005 are FTVs, 50006 is P1. All have flown. This we knew.
50007 and 50008 were nowhere to be seen, so probably being fitted with interior or at the paint shop. AFAIK there are not assigned to any customer yet (anyone knows why?)
50009 was fully assembled (with wings, empennage, standing on their gear, etc.) but without engines. Apparently all systems installed as it was on display in the CRJ FAL where the shareholder meeting was hosted, not in the CS FAL. Not assigned neither.
50010 thru 50012 are assigned to Swiss. They where nowhere to be seen so they are either being fitted with interiors, at the paint shop or handed over to flight test.
50013 thru 50015 were in the forward and middle stations. Structurally complete, no engines. Systems being installed. Also assigned to Swiss.
MSN55001 and 55002 are flying FTVs, this we also knew. Shareholders were invited to tour the cabin of 55002, have a look at the cockpit (but can't get in), try the seats, bins, lavatory, etc. The orange flight test module was still present and on display. That was cool.
As we know 55003 is assigned to Air Baltic. BBD posted an update video a few days ago with Air Baltic CEO touring the FAL and having a picture in front of it. It is structurally complete and having systems installed.
55004 and 55005 are also assigned to Baltic as they had big stickers showing it. They are early in the FAL at the fuselage mating sections.
I don't remember who maintains this production list for the CSeries but it is by far the most precise and accurate available on internet. I seem to recall he's one of ours on a.net. Anyway, if you recognize yourself, you could update a few items in it with the info above.
Hope this help!

Interesting gallery from ATWonline from the FAL
|Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 54):|
The CS300 with airBaltic sticker seems to have only one pair of overwing exits - I have read several places that they would have two pairs and 148 seats. Perhaps they are introducing a premium cabin (and thus less seats) with the CS300...?
“The beauty about the CSeries cabin is its flexibility to install premium seats and the aircraft has great range,” Gauss told Aviation Week at the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) annual general meeting in Doha, Qatar. Air Baltic is studying several cabin configuration options for the aircraft. The airline has opted for the 160-seat, double over wing exit version of the CS300. Its European lay-out will be at 148 seats, while a team within Air Baltic is looking at two different versions for the medium and long haul operation: One would see six lie-flat business class seats and 105 in economy. The airline is also considering a twelve seat lie-flat business cabin that would reduce economy capacity to 95 seats.

EASA certification imminent

In the EASA document, it refers to "Pratt & Witney Canada Corp." continually and give the address in Quebec. Why not use the Connecticut address? Or is there some business reason for this?

The first flight of LX#1 (50010) must be about to happen. Does anyone know when it's due?
|Quoting dash9 (Reply 64):|
The PW1500 series are built by PWC in a new factory at the Mirabel airport. While the GTF R&D was conducted in Connecticut, PWC must have taken care of the 1500 series certification with Transport Canada

Is the first CS100 for Swiss already in paint? Because Bombardier just tweeted this photo:

I thought the first aircraft for LX has just entered the paint shop during this week according this:
|Quoting rbrunner (Reply 75):|
Isn't she supposed to have her FF between 1st and 10th June?
|Quoting LSZH34 (Reply 76):|
That was just a guess of mine. If it operates from 15JUL, then I expect her to be delivered from the end of June between the first days of July (It will certainly have some ground time before starting ops). Add 2-3 weeks of flight testing for the first production aircraft and you get a FF date of early June.
|Quoting Amiga500 (Reply 79):|
I don't know how they can possibly certify the aircraft without all the certification documents.
Which will be *at least* end of June.
