10:30 – June 22, 2016 – Quebec, Canada

More and more CSeries Good News!

Today: The last pre-delivery flight of the first CSeries to be delivered to Swiss Air. MSN 50010 pre-flight testing has gone so well the aircraft will be ready for delivery 7 days before it actual delivery flight to Swiss Air. WOW to the Bombardier Employees!!!

More good news?

MSN 50011, the 2nd CSeries to be delivered, also to Swiss Air, is ready and painted. This 2nd production CSeries to be delivered to an actual "paying for it" customer will be doing Fuel test this week-end. Expect to see it make its maiden flight early next week (June 27/28).

More good news?

Are you invited to the Party? June 29 is PARTY TIME at Bombardier CSeries facilities! Celebration of the first CSeries leaving Mirabel factory flying to Zurich with Swiss Air pilots in command! I don't think there's any key to be given to the pilots for their new aircraft, or maybe all the technical manuals over a… USB key… Mark this historical day, June 29, 2016, the first day CSeries actually leave the factory to be delivered to its first customer! Serial number 50010. A process that will be happening for many decades to come, brand new CSeries leaving Bombardier installation at Mirabel Airport (YMX) to be delivered to its new master and entering into service… We will all be flying on a CSeries soon.

More good news?

On the following day, June 30, it is CS300 Transport Canada Certification!

More good news?

A month after (or less?), the CS300 will quickly receive its EASA and FAA certification. This process is made quickly since all the communality between the CSeries models, i.e. CS100 and CS300. The same when a CS500 comes out, quick to build and test, and to certify. (Meaning? Not expansive to do). All the advantages of having a new Family just out, a strong base (the CS300 is the base model) to build upon for decades!

More good news?

Rumors has it, there are orders for CSeries coming up during the Farnborough Airshow before July 14. Also, we could expect one of those orders to be from a "British" airline for something around or in excess of 100 CSeries. Let's stay tuned for this special week, the Farnborough Trade Show is July 11 to July 15. Remember, July 15 is "another" day for history, the First Commercial Flight where CSeries is entering into service with one of its customer, Swiss Air! (the Star Alliance flight last month was a "demo flight using one of the test aircraft that belongs to, and was operated by, Bombardier", nothing of a commercial flight unless Bombardier is an Airline operator…)

More good news?

The 2nd CSeries might be delivered to Swiss Airline just before their first one make it actual entry into service flight… Bombardier is starting pumping CSeries out of the factory, with 15 of them scheduled to be delivered from June 29 to the end of 2016.
