L-3 MAS recently celebrated the delivery of structural components to be installed on the Bombardier Aerospace CSeries™ flight test aircraft. More than 100 components – from egress doors to ballast and water tanks – have been manufactured to support the flight test program and certification of the CSeries aircraft. Designed for the growing 100- to 149-seat market, the CSeries aircraft combines advanced materials, leading-edge technology and proven methods to meet commercial airline requirements.

"We are very pleased to announce the delivery of these important components for Bombardier Aerospace's CSeries aircraft flight test program," said Jacques Comtois, vice president and general manager of L-3 MAS. "This achievement is further testament to our outstanding record of providing major assemblies for leading aerospace OEMs. We look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial relationship with Bombardier Aerospace."

L-3 MAS has received orders from Bombardier Aerospace for the manufacture and assembly of all the required emergency egress doors, as well as for approximately 100 ballast boxes and 20 water tanks, both designed to control stability during flight test operations.

L-3 MAS is currently working on many projects for the design, prototyping, manufacturing, repair and modification of components, as well as the maintenance and modification of commercial, business and military aircraft for many clients in the aeronautics field.
