Bombardier completes CSeries aircraft ground vibration tests and final software upgrades in preparation for first flight

Bombardier Aerospace announced today that ground vibration tests, as well as software upgrades and corresponding tests, have been completed on the first CSeries aircraft - Flight Test Vehicle 1 (FTV1). In addition, Safety of Flight (SOF) statements from all suppliers have been obtained and Bombardier's Flight Test Centre has applied to Transport Canada for the FTV1 Flight Test Permit.

During the final testing stage in preparation for first flight, FTV1 will conduct power runs, as well as low and high speed taxiing. Based on the latest program review, the first flight will occur by the end of July 2013. In order to enhance the effectiveness of the flight program, Bombardier extended the timeline slightly to allow for additional software upgrades for improved system maturity and functionality.

"Only five years after launching the CSeries airliner, we're approaching our maiden flight - a historic moment for Bombardier and a game-changing moment for the industry," said Mike Arcamone, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

"The success of the CSeries aircraft program so far is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our partners, suppliers and in-house teams; we have also benefitted greatly from the involvement of our customers," added Mr. Arcamone.
