Last week we visited Bombardier’s Mirabel facility. In this newsletter, we will share our views on what we observed, and what it means for the CSeries program and Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
The CSeries program has encountered a few delays, as Bombardier has faced the same challenges that Airbus (A380) and Boeing (787) endured as they developed new aircraft unlike any previous models. New-technology aircraft programs are complex, testing people, engineering, and certification processes. But like its competitors, Bombardier appears to now be meeting those challenges and while the airplane will be late, it appears quite attractive.
