More about the CSeries CS100 certification
No more flying is required for the CS100 certification. Flying does continue with FTV3, FTV5 and Production #1 CS100 pushing further the post-certification Function & Reliability (F&R) testing, simulating the use of the aircraft in "real-life" like a client would, flying from airport to airport multiple times a day, carrying passengers, servicing the aircraft, etc. FTV7 is for CS300 certification.
It is in the hands of Transport Canada for the rubber stamping.
CS300 Certification is next. The CSeries model CS100 and CS300 aircraft have over 95 per cent parts commonality.
The "First Production" CSeries aircraft to be delivered to a customer has been flying since October 30, 2015, serial 50006. CSeries First Flight of its Flight Test Vehicle #1 (FTV1) was on September 16, 2013.
A total of 7 different CSeries aircraft have been flying so far.
