On March 7th, 2013 Bombardier presented the first CSeries aircraft FTV-1 to the press and public at a program update presentation. It was not called a roll-out because the aircraft was not in rol-out condition needing its engines to be installed and landing gear and other systems checked out.
Bombardier indicated that the aircraft was structurally complete, all the wiring fitted, and last systems are being installed. After functional tests which are scheduled before the end of April, FTV-1 will begin the ground test program moving to a planned first flight by the end of June 2013.
The CS100 will be firs to fly in the program, and flight testing will involve five aircraft which must be delivered one a month to complete the planned year long certification test program. The CS300 is scheduled to fly in 2014 for certification by the end of that year.
