CSeries FTV-1 Aircraft

Bombardier announced on June 14, 2015 that based on flight tests results, the CS100 and CS300 aircraft are exceeding their original targets for fuel burn, payload, range and airfield performance.

The company also announced that the C Series aircraft are on track to meet noise performance targets.

The C Series 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 also showing a greater than a 20% fuel burn advantage compared to other aircraft in its class, and a greater than 10% advantage compared to re-engined aircraft in its class.
