Bombardier CSeries

From Canadian Power Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Bombardier CSeries is a family of narrow-body, twin-engine, medium-range jet airliners that are being developed by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace. Models are the 110-seat CS100, and the 130-seat CS300. These were initially named C110 and C130, respectively. In certification documentation, the CSeries family is designated Bombardier BD-500, with suffix -1A10 for the CS100 and -1A11 for the CS300.

This new CSeries jet, which offers 110-seat and 135-seat versions, competes with the Boeing 737 Next Generation 737-600, 737-700, Airbus A318, Airbus A319, and Embraer 195. Bombardier claims the CSeries will burn 20% less fuel per trip than these competitors.

In November 2012, Bombardier announced that the 110-seat CS100 would take its maiden flight in June 2013 and enter service in 2014 Q2. The 130-seat CS300 is to follow six months later. In June 2013, due to upgrades of the aircraft's software and final ground testing, Bombardier shifted the timeline for the first flight into July 2013.

The Canadian Forces also use a had maritime patrol aircraft based on the CS100 enter service in the late 2010s, the Bombardier CP-207 Argus II.
