It has been a while since I wrote a comprehensive update about Bombardier, the Airbus A220, the Q400, CRJ...
Trying to organize all the info from multiple sources, I will be covering the Global, Q400, CRJ, LearJet, Bombardier Transportation, Airbus, L-3 MAS, F-35, CF-18, Dassault, Boeing…
Ok let's start.
Bombardier Global Aircraft Production
Wichita: According to … (yes I know, no, those "…" are not there by mistake), Bombardier has a Plan B about Toronto Global assembly. It seems that in case the still "on-going" negotiation about the land at Pearson Airport was not to be up to expectation the Global aircraft assembly would be divided in two locations: Transfer of the Global assembly from Toronto to Wichita and Montreal. Wichita is currently "officially" scheduled to do only the interior completion of the Global 5000/5500. This might be the time to see what Doug Ford can do?
Montreal could add to the current completion centre the total assembly of the Global 7500/8500 (6500 too if not going to Wichita…). The Montreal area would then not only be completing the interior of the new Global 7500/8500 but also making its complete assembly.
It's up to Pearson and the City of Toronto according to … Take it for what it's worth but it makes sense.
Airbus is building the Global fuselage at Mirabel airport. Aerolia (now STELIA) was selected by Bombardier to design and manufacture the central fuselage section of the new Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets now renamed 7500 and 8500.
Aerolia gave to L-3 MAS of Mirabel the design, manufacturing and delivery of the overwing exit doors. Both are located at Mirabel Airport. Aerolia was renamed STELIA Aerospace on January 1, 2015 and combined with another Airbus company, Sogerma. As you know, STELIA is own by Airbus of Toulouse.

- Question: When did Justin Trudeau fly on a CSeries/A220? Never! Why did Trudeau decided NOT to allow the A220/CSeries to land at Toronto City Airport? The A220-100 makes less noise than a Q400. SWISS is currently landing at London City Airport, thanks to the Steep Approach certification of the A220/CSeries and the London, UK authorities.
As for the Q400, ongoing talks are… Oops... that is all for part 1... more in the part 2. How to get it? Simply add your email address to the free Fliegerfaust Newsletter list by subscribing to it for free here
