The CS100 aircraft has completed certification flight testing and Bombardier Commercial Aircraft is now finalising the submission of all remaining Type Certificate documentation for the approval of Transport Canada.“We are executing to plan and are in the final stage before obtaining the CS100 Type Certificate from Transport Canada,” elaborated Fred Cromer, president of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “I heartily congratulate the many employees, suppliers and customers that have worked together to bring us all to this important milestone.”“The completion of the CS100 aircraft flight test programme and its pending certification by Transport Canada fills us with a great deal of satisfaction and pride,” added Rob Dewar, VP of the CSeries aircraft programme. “It is also very gratifying to see the CS100 conducting its route proving exercises and touching down at airports across Canada and in the US. We have already started to see increased excitement and interest in many communities as our all-new CSeries aircraft – the first new aircraft produced for the 100- to 150-seat segment in the last three decades – prepares to enter service with Swiss in the first half of 2016.”
