[Avionics Today 08-20-2015] Bombardier announced today that its C Series CS100 aircraft has performed over 80 percent of the required certification tests with more than 2,250 flight test hours to date. The C Series aircraft is currently undergoing noise performance testing and the company expects the aircraft to meet those targets. Bombardier also confirmed that one of the C Series aircraft’s demonstration stops in September will be at its Bombardier Toronto site.

“The summer months are proving very productive for the C Series aircraft as the flight test program continues to make solid progress — even setting a record with six test aircraft flying on the same day, logging in excess of a combined 20 hours,” said Fred Cromer, president of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Passengers also flew onboard the CS100 for the first time as part of the cabin testing program and their feedback was very complimentary.”
