Bombardier has announced, that based on flight tests results, its all-new CS100
aircraft are exceeding their original targets for fuel burn, payload, range and airfield performance. In addition, the C Series
aircraft are on track to meet noise performance targets, making them the quietest commercial jets in production.
The C Series
aircrafts maximum range has been confirmed to be up to 3,300 NM (6,112 km), some 350 NM (648 km) more than originally targeted. The aircraft is delivering more than a 20% fuel burn advantage compared to in-production aircraft, and a greater than 10% advantage compared to re-engined aircraft.
"The C Series
performance is better than advertised – while offering a best-in-class cabin, and carrying up to 150 passengers more than initially promised. This will provide increased profitability and market access for operators, along with convenience and comfort for passengers," said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier
With unmatched environmental and noise footprints, the C Series
aircrafts community noise level is up to 20 EPNdB* below the Federal Aviation Authoritys Stage 4 limit, making it ideal for city centre operations.
The Bombardier C Series
family of aircraft, representing the fusion of performance and technology, is a 100% all-new design that offers operators potential savings of between US$ 7.5 to 12 million per aircraft.
In addition to delivering best-in-class economics, Bombardier has placed considerable emphasis on cabin design to ensure an excellent passenger experience. The C Series
aircrafts larger seats, overhead bins and windows create a wide body feel that offers passengers unparalleled comfort.
and Bombardier CS300
aircraft have over 95% parts commonality, as well as the same type rating. The groundbreaking Pratt & Whitney PurePower® PW1500G engine, combined with advanced aerodynamics, delivers reduced fuel burn, noise and emissions, increasing the aircraft’s environmental and social compatibility. By focusing on the 100- to 150-seat market segment, Bombardier has designed the C Series
aircraft to deliver unparalleled economic advantage to operators. It also opens up new opportunities for single-aisle aircraft operations.
Bombardier has booked orders and commitments for 603 C Series
aircraft, which include firm orders for 243. News Source Bombardier Media-centre
