Bombardier CS300 Jetliner awarded Type Validation by the US FAA
Dec 15, 2016: Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s CS300 airliner has been awarded its Type Validation by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This most recent approval means that both the CS300 aircraft and the smaller CS100 aircraft are now approved by Transport Canada, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the FAA.
The FAA recently conducted an operational evaluation on the CS100 and CS300 aircraft and determined that both aircraft will share the same pilot type rating, allowing operators to benefit from significant cost-saving opportunities.
“These airworthiness validations by international authorities recognize the exhaustive process and excellent work done by Bombardier, in conjunction with Transport Canada, who awarded the C Series aircraft their original aircraft type approvals,” said François Caza, vice president, Product Development and chief Engineer and head of Bombardier’s Design Approval Organisation.
“C Series aircraft combine new materials, new manufacturing processes and new design philosophies, which are fully recognised through the completion of these validations by major international authorities.”
“The SWISS CS100 airliners have had very strong in-service performance to date and are now in their fifth month of operation; and earlier today, the CS300 aircraft entered revenue service with airBaltic’s first passenger flight from Riga to Amsterdam, informed Rob Dewar, vice president, C Series Programme, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
“There are airlines around the world that are very interested in the C Series aircraft family but have been waiting for in-service operational experience before committing to the programme. We are confident they will really like what they see as the C Series aircraft family continues to meet or exceed the goals that were established for the programme,” added Dewar.
