Bombardier expects certification from the FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency for
the CS100 next month. It was certified by Transport Canada in December 2015. Swiss
International Air Lines will take delivery of its first aircraft at the end of June.

The C Series cockpit features very large screens for ease of information-viewing. The
aircraft has Airbus-style sidestick controls allowing pilots to move further forward.

Bombardier says cabin windows are 50% larger than the Airbus A320's. The cabin has a
five-abreast layout. Luggage fits into overhead bins wheels-forward, maximizing stowage
space.

Wings, gear and the empennage are installed at the second station in final assembly. The
aircraft then move to the final position, where power-on checks are performed, among
other things.

Bombardier plans to deliver the first C Series aircraft to Swiss International


Air Lines before the end of June. All stations in the two final assembly lines
are occupied, and among the aircraft being built are units for Swiss and Air
Baltic, which will receive the first stretched CS300. Bombardier targets 15 C
Series deliveries this year and more than double that output in 2017. Aviation
Week was allowed into the hall with a group of reporters this month.

Can anyone explain the mini-console between the rudder pedals?

It looks like underneath it is the mechanism to adjust the pedals with a large knob on the
outside and a foot rest below.

That a prototype for the new IFE system to replace the torture box that is used to afflict
Qatar 787 aisle passengers.

The CS-100 has dropped into MT now twice for high altitude testing and I have had the
opportunity to ground handle it both times. A beautiful airplane.

How are the bins? I know the e170 series is a pain to load. I'm wondering how these
compare.In my opinion the biggest difference between those airceaft and the Mitsubishi jet
is the stand up aft bin.

Like the modern cabin design with the enlarged windows. Anything that can improve upon the
"cattle car" direction air travel has taken is greatly appreciated.

I am delighted that Bombardier have been very successful in obtaining considerable Orders for
their New Aircraft, but I do trust that it will turn out to be a profitable venture for the
Company as there has been accusations of Price cutting to obtain these orders and an
allegation that they are being sold at little more than cost ?
This would not be satistfactory in the long term , so lets trust that it is simply rivals allegations.

Being North American and an aviation enthusiast, I am pleased to see the C_series do well.
Still, seeing articles such as this, it is difficult me to feel a comparison among the several
similar small airliners. Other than price and production availability, why is one better than
another? That is, comparing the C300, similar Embrear aircraft, the Mitsubishi about to be,
the Chinese 919 (I think), and the Russian one. Of course, some are not even in production yet.
Believe all use US engines, maybe P&W geared.
I welcome any knowledgeable opinions. Thanks for the related non-emotional comments.
Think all seat 2 X 2. Much better than 1 X 2. Just think that for a long time the DC-3 carried 21
in 7 rows and the DC-6 and 7 and Connie had 2 X 2 and generally less than 25 rows. Not even
as many these small airliners. Then there are the speed differences. The current productivity!
Wow!

As a 4, 0000 share shareholder, I sure hope return to there $20 a share cost. Does any think I
have a sweet hope in hell of that occurring?

Only fools bought at $20.

Cut the losses at $7 5 years ago and bought back at $0.85-$1.05 I owned it for years going
thru the splits and the highs. I think it will never return to the $20 level as the float is very
high... They need to get profitable on CSeries, get the Global 7000/8000 going then start
the share buy-backs... Oh yeah maybe think about a 50-80 seat Dash 8 Replacement ... Oh
then a CRJ-900 Replacement/re-engine... wow they have lots to do....

No. They are a company involved in a market that requires a significant amount of R&D
investment year on year just to remain stationary relative to their competition.
That means they should forget about share buy-backs and give their shareholders dividend
only.
If those that bought the shares didn't realise that the long term stability of the company
would require continous investment to a point buybacks were a large risk* - then thats their
problem, not the BBD's board.
*c.f. Boeing; who have pissed away the best years' profits of the 737NG and 777 on share
buy backs and now have inadequate liquidity to deal effectively with the A321LR while
coping with the price pressure of the A330-900.

Almost no chance of BBD.B hitting $20 unless the controlling shares are given up first.
Then maybe at a diluted break-up price in say five years from now it might hit $20CAD.
Meanwhile, dollar cost average by adding 4K shares per quarter for a year or two. Will at
least ease the pain of the current 'paper' loss. And yes, I own a few shares.

I have a very firm view that the shares will climb once the customers start using this plane
and the sceptics are silenced. Once a steady stream of orders start flowing, market
sentiment will change. Give it 3 years and the share price should double.
