Canada’s Minister of Transport Marc Garneau announced the Bombardier CSeries CS100 has received type certification in a 18 December ceremony at Bombardier’s assembly line in Mirabel, Quebec.
Hailing certification after a 27-month flight test campaign as a “historic moment” for the Canadian aerospace industry, Garneau praised the CS100’s achievement.
“As Minister of Transport, my top priority is safe and clean transportation, and this new aircraft embodies this element,” he says.
The aircraft level certification follows nearly three years after Transport Canada awarded a type certificate for the Pratt & Whitney PW1500G, the geared turbofan engine powering the twin-jet.
