Anywhere from a week to max two from the time of rollout. They do the power up, taxi tests, several flights and then an acceptance flight. You can see the timelines from the Swiss CS100 that have been delivered.

CS100 Aircraft Reaches 30-Day In-Service Milestone!
Quote:
It seems like only yesterday that we delivered the first CS100 aircraft with an emotional, celebratory event in Mirabel, but now we’re happy to report that the aircraft has been in service for just over a month.

Both Bombardier and launch operator SWISS are satisfied with the CS100 aircraft’s technical reliability and pleased that it has been performing as expected. SWISS’ pilots are really enjoying operating the aircraft and have been commenting on the intuitive flying experience they’re getting.

At the 30-day in-service milestone, the aircraft had completed 136 flights and flown more than 91,000 km. It has served 13,250 passengers and four destinations (Paris, Manchester, Prague and Budapest) from its base in Zurich. Feedback from passengers has been overwhelmingly positive. They are impressed with the aircraft’s bright cabin, big windows, comfortable seating with good legroom, spacious overhead bins and wide aisles amongst other features.

A few, minor technical and operational issues relating to de-icing, air conditioning and ground handling were quickly resolved with the help of Bombardier’s on-site Customer Services team. The team is reporting that the CS100 aircraft is proving to be relatively easy to service and troubleshoot, and the valuable field experience is quickly contributing to the team’s knowledge base.

SWISS’ second CS100 aircraft, which was delivered on August 12, is expected to enter service in the coming weeks.

Swiss is liking the reliability of the CS100 based on the service thus far. Positive feedback from clients also.

http://business.financialpost.com/ne...s-airline-says

The first airline to fly Bombardier Inc.’s CSeries says the jetliner has been significantly more reliable in its first month of operation than other aircraft built by its competitors.

An aircraft’s dependability is often measured by its dispatch reliability, or the percentage of flights that depart on time. Swiss International Air Lines Ltd., which offered the first-ever CSeries commercial flight on July 15, said the aircraft is performing better than some Boeing Co. and Airbus Group SE jets did during their first few weeks in operation.

“The dispatch reliability of the first aircraft has already reached a high value, much higher than in comparison with the dispatch reliability of other new aircraft types during phase-in,” Swiss spokeswoman Karin Muller said in an email, pointing specifically to Airbus’s A380 and A320neo and Boeing’s 787.

She added that the CSeries’ dispatch reliability has not yet reached the desired level of 99 per cent, but Swiss won’t release more detailed numbers until at least five aircraft have been in operation for at least three months.

Swiss now has two CS100 aircraft in operation after the second one entered service last week. The airline has placed a firm order for 15 CS100s and 15 of the larger-variety CS300s.

The CSeries experienced some minor glitches in its first week of operation. The very first flight, from Zurich to Paris, was delayed by an hour when airport ramp staff disconnected a ground power cable too soon, forcing a power restart.

Four days later, a flight from Zurich to Manchester, U.K., turned back after the plane experienced a problem with its air-conditioning system.

Muller described these as “small technical and operational issues” that didn’t hurt the phase-in process.

“With our daily experience and the support by Bombardier on-site, these issues and insecurities regarding the handling have already noticeably decreased,” she said.

The feedback from our pilots is gratifying. They especially like the intuitive flying experience.

Swiss has also experienced some minor cabin design issues that it is addressing with Bombardier and which may delay delivery of the next aircraft by “a few weeks,” but overall the experience has been encouraging, Muller added.

“The customer feedback is very positive with the expected remarks concerning the bright cabin, reduced noise, enough leg room and space for hand luggage as well as the comfortable seats,” she said. “Also the feedback from our pilots is gratifying. They especially like the intuitive flying experience.”

Earlier this month, Bombardier CEO Alain Bellemare described the feedback from Swiss and its passengers as “outstanding.”

The positive reception has been a relief for the company, which had struggled with delays, cost overruns and serious doubts about demand for the aircraft. Recent orders from Air Canada and Delta Air Lines Inc. have helped to ease those concerns.

The larger CS300 version of the jetliner was certified by Transport Canada in July and is expected to enter service with Air Baltic Corp. by the end of the year.

By Marisa Garcia, FlightChic

20 August 2016 | Aircraft manufacturers are creating new passenger-friendly cabin environments by re-thinking the fuselage structure and introducing more spacious cabins with larger windows and improved cabin pressurisation, among other innovations.

Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner and Airbus’ A350 cabins, as well as Airbus’ new AirSpace cabin exemplify this new design thinking for widebody aircraft. On narrowbody aircraft, Boeing’s SkyInterior cabin delivers cabin improvements, as does Zodiac Aerospace’s ISIS (Innovative Space Interior System) cabin featured on Delta’s A320-family aircraft.

Now these cabin improvements found on Boeing and Airbus aircraft are coming to regional aircraft with Bombardier’s new CSeries regional jet.

SWISS CSeries 100
In mid-July, the first CSeries 100 aircraft entered service with SWISS, and won the hearts of passengers and industry watchers alike.

As Aviation Week put it nicely: “Aerospace is driven by innovation” is a timeworn slogan used by industry executives and enthusiasts. Yet there hasn’t been a clean-sheet aircraft in the single-aisle segment for 28 years. To an outsider, this would seem odd—particularly as single-aisles comprise 70 percent of mainline jetliner production. Bombardier corrected that anomaly this month when the C-Series entered service with Swiss. After flying in the C Series and digging deeper into its design and systems, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is bringing significant value-creating technology into the market.”

Larger windows, wider middle seat, mood lighting
The CSeries aircraft contains a high usage of composite materials, is quieter, features larger windows, and the cabin features large, rotating overhead storage bins, allowing each passenger to stow a sizeable carry-on bag overhead.

The combination of the bigger windows and the higher ceiling make this smaller single aisle aircraft feel more spacious, while mood lighting can brighten up the space even more. The aircraft also features two spacious lavatories.

SWISS has configured the 125-seat CSeries cabin in a 3-2 configuration, which reduces the chances for singles of being stuck in the middle seat. That said, the airline has also used the extra room available to improve the experience for the passenger seated in the middle by making this seat wider at 19 inches.

The first four rows of SWISS’ CS100 are dedicated to Business Class, which leaves the second seat in the 2-row section and the middle seat in the 3-row section empty.

Small overhead screens on every row
Arguably, the most innovative feature of the CS100 cabin is in the new overhead passenger service units (PSUs), which feature small screen displays – about the size of smartphones. Because there are two of these screens on every row, visibility for the majority of passengers is better then the more common overhead drop-screens found on some larger aircraft, while avoiding the weight of seat-back screens.

The PSUs are not used for in-flight entertainment but play the safety video prior to departure and show a moving map during the flight which marks the flight’s progress. In another initiative, SWISS recently launched a ‘pre-flight IFE’ trial at Geneva Airport that lets passengers from Geneva Airport download videos, magazine and newspapers to their smartphone or tablet while waiting at the gate or in the lounge.

CS300
Bombardier’s larger version of its CSeries aircraft – the longer-range CS300 – will enter service in October this year with airBaltic and this 148-seat aircraft will feature similar passenger-friendly elements.

Norways Widerøe Flyveselskap AS will in mid October decide if they will order 10 CS100 for regional flights on their route network, and for charter and wetlease. But first - talks with pilot and crew associations .... After SAS Scandinavian Airlines had sold its last shares in Widerøe, they will now compete with Norwegian Air and SAS.

On September 27 BOMBARDIER will test CS300 at the Riga Airport.

In the meantime, last week yet another Q400 NextGen landing gear failed. An emergency landing was made in Riga by airBaltic, no one was hurt. http://www.delfi.lv/news/national/po....d?id=47919889

Nice cut and paste, you missed the bit where they also said they were looking at the Mitsuibishi MJR and Embraer 190.

Bombardier’s CSeries receives environmental designation as emissions talks get underway

TORONTO — Bombardier Inc.’s CSeries jetliner has become the first aircraft to receive a key environmental designation, just as the aviation industry moves towards implementing a cap on emissions for the first time.

EPD International, a Stockholm-based organization that studies the environmental impact of a variety of products, said Monday that the CS100 aircraft is the first in its industry to receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

An EPD doesn’t necessarily indicate that a product is environmentally superior to its competitors, but it does provide an independent analysis of its full environmental impact, from design and manufacturing to operation and end-of-life.

S&P downgrades Bombardier debt on CSeries delivery delays
Bombardier Inc more than halves CSeries delivery forecast from 15 to 7 planes
Having this data available, and the fact that Bombardier is the first in the industry to provide it, will make the aircraft more appealing to potential customers, said Fred Cromer, president of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

“This gives the materials to make comparisons and really show that the CSeries stands apart,” Cromer said in an interview from Montreal. “It’s a verification of what we’ve been saying … This aircraft is game-changing in terms of its impact on the environment.”


The EPD found that the CSeries consumes as little as two litres of fuel per 100 kilometres per passenger. This means it will reduce emissions by up to 120,000 tonnes compared to similarly sized aircraft, comparable to taking 32,000 mid-sized cars off the road for a year.

The International Civil Aviation Organization, an agency of the United Nations, is meeting in Montreal this week and next with the goal of ratifying a proposed environmental accord that aims to cap emissions from international flights at 2020 levels.

It’s a verification of what we’ve been saying … This aircraft is game-changing in terms of its impact on the environment
Cromer said airlines tend to focus primarily on cost when they’re choosing an aircraft, but cost and the environment are becoming increasingly intertwined. The proposed ICAO accord would create a carbon market where airlines could buy credits to offset emissions above 2020 levels.

“A huge percentage of (airlines) have an environmental agenda,” Cromer said.

The EPD comes at a time of renewed uncertainty over the CSeries’ future.

This month, Bombardier was forced to halve its delivery schedule for 2016 due to problems at its engine supplier, Pratt & Whitney. The company now expects to deliver just seven of the aircraft this year, down from an earlier forecast of 15, leading to an additional cash-flow deficit of US$150 million.

Since that announcement, Bombardier’s stock has fallen by more than 25 per cent to close at $1.58 on Monday.

Cromer would not say when he expects production rates to return to expected levels, other than to say he believes the problems at Pratt are a “short-term issue.”

“It’s unfortunate. It’s never good to come out and say, ‘We said we’re going to deliver this many and now we’re going to deliver less than that,’ but I believe that Pratt is very strong and very focused on this and will correct the situation pretty quickly,” he said.

“I have all the confidence in the world that they will manage through this and we’ll get back on track.”

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has announced that its CS300 jetliner—the second CS300 flight test vehicle—has embarked on a series of European and Middle Eastern route-proving flights alongside first operator airBaltic of Latvia.

The flights—which will operate from the airline’s base in Riga and include stops in Vilnius, Lithuania, Tallinn, Estonia and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates—will use airBaltic air and ground operational practices.

AirBaltic has 20 CS300s, which will be configured with 148seats, on firm order for delivery through 2019. It expects to take delivery of its first CS300, the larger variant of the CSeries for which it is the global launch operator, in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Bombardier said Sept. 6 that it will deliver seven CSeries aircraft in 2016 instead of 15 as planned, citing Pratt & Whitney PW1500G geared turbofan (GTF) engine delivery delays. The Canadian manufacturer has not provided specifics on remaining 2016 deliveries.

“The airBaltic team [will] welcome the CS300 to its home base in Riga for the first time to see the aircraft simulate operations in our route system that covers much of Europe—all in advance of our first delivery later this fall,” airBaltic CEO Martin Gauss said. “The CS300 aircraft has outstanding performance, admirable efficiency and an impressive cabin that offers maximum comfort and we are looking forward to introducing this fine aircraft to our passengers and airports in our network.”

“Because of the 99% commonality between the CS100 and CS300 aircraft and the diverse routes that … airBaltic operates, we are expecting to see a perfect blend of performance, outstanding reliability and operational ground support,” Bombardier Commercial Aircraft VP-CSeries Rob Dewar said. “Our teams are working closely together as we ramp up activities for a real indication of how the CS300 will operate in the network and we are confident that its entry-into-service with airBaltic later this year will be impressive.”

The route-proving flights provide a very good indication of how the aircraft will perform in typical day-to-day airline operations by observing airfield performance, airport turnaround times and on-ground operations at various airports, Bombardier said in a statement.
