Bombardier Aerospace Cseries aircraft needs more time to ensure 'system maturity'

17 January 2014

Bombardier Aerospace (TSX: BBD) said it has confirmed that the CSeries aircraft program is making solid progress and initial performance results are in line with the company´s expectations.

However, based on the thorough review of the CSeries program after the first flight of the CS100 on September 16, 2013, the flight test phase will require more time than originally anticipated to ensure that the aircraft has the overall system maturity to support a successful entry-into-service.

The CS100 aircraft´s entry-into-service is now scheduled for the second half of 2015 and will be followed by the CS300 aircraft´s entry-into-service approximately six months afterwards.

Bombardier is the world´s only manufacturer of both planes and trains. It is headquartered in Montréal, Canada. News and information are available at or follow us on Twitter @Bombardier.
