This week Bombardier sent their CS100 to for certification testing.  This airport has unique requirements because of a steep glideslope going into the airport.  Based out of Stansted for tests,  Bombardier took their aircraft in and out of LCY.  Despite taking a range hit using LCY,  the CS100 will have the best range for a commercial airliner from that airport.

Here is a of the second landing at LCY.  Note how quiet it is.  Clearly a “good neighbor” for people living near the airport.

Takeoff was equally impressive.  If you have 50 minutes to watch more at LCY for noise comparison, click here.

 

We got to speak with speak Vice President & General Manager CSeries about this part of the CSeries program.
