Bombardier starts the year with a much needed order.

Quote:
Al Qahtani Aviation Company Orders up to 26 Bombardier CSeries Aircraft

•Aircraft to be operated by SaudiGulf Airlines, newly launched national carrier for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


Bombardier Aerospace announced today that Dammam-based Al Qahtani Aviation Company has signed a firm purchase agreement for 16 CS300 aircraft with options for an additional 10 CS300 jetliners. The aircraft will be operated by SaudiGulf Airlines, a newly launched national carrier from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Al Qahtani Aviation Company and SaudiGulf Airlines are both owned by Saudi Abdel Hadi Abdullah Al-Qahtani & Sons Group of Companies (Tariq Al-Qahtani & Bros.).

Based on the list price of the aircraft, the firm order for the 16 CS300 aircraft is valued at approximately $1.21 billion US. Should all 10 options be exercised, the value of the contract would increase to $1.99 billion US.

Including the order announced today, Bombardier has booked orders and commitments for 445 CSeries aircraft, which include firm orders for 198 CSeries airliners. Some 17 customers and lessees have joined the CSeries aircraft program.
Bombardier Press Release:

The program now has 198 firm orders.

Bombardier CSeries jet delayed by at least nine months

Not good news at all...
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/...A0F0VA20140116

Bombardier (BBDb.TO: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) said on Thursday it will delay putting its new narrowbody CSeries jet into commercial use by at least nine months, citing a longer-than-expected test phase.

The smaller CS100 aircraft's entry-into-service is now scheduled for the second half of 2015. It will be followed by the larger CS300's entry-into-service about six months later, the planemaker said in a statement.

The CSeries, which saw its inaugural flight delayed three times before taking off four months ago, was ambitiously scheduled to go into service a year later, though analysts had expected entry-into-service to be pushed back to early 2015.

It is the latest setback for the world's fourth largest planemaker's ambitious plan to dominate the growing 100- to 149-seat market, pitting itself against the smaller aircraft made by industry giants, Boeing Co (BA.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) and Airbus Group NV

(AIR.PA: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz).

Bombardier had previously said flight tests were going according to plan but would provide an update on the aircraft program's entry-into-service schedule early this year.

National Bank analyst Cameron Doerksen last week warned clients in a note that he expected the CSeries' entry into service could be delayed longer than expected.

"Based on a flight test program that appears to be progressing much slower than expected, we now believe it is increasingly likely that the CSeries entry-into-service date will slip into Q2 2015," wrote Doerksen, who had earlier been expecting a first-quarter 2015 debut.

Hi guys, quick recap on the testing/production:

FTV1 has completed 21 flights, 43,5 hours in the air. It is now based in Wichita, Kansas, at the BFTC (Bombardier Flight Test Center) in order to have more favorable weather to perform test flights.
FTV2 flew 5 times, totaling 10,5 hours in the air.

All test flights until now were in FBW direct mode, normal mode should be implemented at Wichita with FTV1 first.

FTV3 is about to be handed over to the flight test team (end of January) and should be flying by mid February.
FTV4 and 5 are being completed in the FAL.
The first production CS100 (msn 50006) is also under assembly at Mirabel, while all the components for the first CS300 are being delivered to the FAL (complete fuselage is already there).

Cheers,
Paolo

Yes, it is a direct quote - but actually, compared to what?

As if the program hasn't been delayed enough.

New Bombardier Jet Suffers Major Engine Failure

* Extent of the Damage to the Engine and the Aircraft Was Not Immediately Clear

Updated May 30, 2014 3:10 p.m. ET

A Bombardier Inc. BBD.B.T -2.38% CSeries test aircraft suffered a major failure of one of its two engines during a ground test Thursday in a potential setback for the Canadian airplane maker's effort to compete with Boeing Co. BA +0.08% and Airbus Group, EADSY +0.45% according to several people familiar with the matter.

The single-aisle CSeries is powered by new engines developed by the Pratt & Whitney unit of United Technologies Corp. UTX -0.11% that use a geared system to let different parts of the engine spin at different speeds, offering better fuel consumption than traditional designs.

The incident occurred on the Canadian plane maker's lead flight test aircraft at Bombardier's assembly plant at Mirabel, Quebec. There were no injuries during the incident, said two people familiar with the event, and the extent of the damage to the engine and the aircraft wasn't immediately clear.

Bombardier Confirms Engine-Related Incident on CSeries FTV1 Aircraft

May 30, 2014 Montréal Aerospace, Press Release

Bombardier confirmed that late yesterday there was an engine-related incident during stationary ground maintenance testing involving the CSeries FTV1 aircraft at its facility in Mirabel, Québec.

Bombardier is investigating the incident with the support of Pratt & Whitney and the appropriate authorities. Safety is the priority, and the CSeries aircraft flight test program will resume once the investigation is completed.

The entire test fleet has been grounded after this incident.

Selon la chaine de TV RDI, le réacteur de l'avion de test FTV1 a explosé.
Il y a un enquêteur du BSA (bureau enquête et accident)+Bonbardier+P & W.

Some Twitter reports say it was an uncontained engine failure with debris being ejected out of the engine. Smoke was seen and there is damage to both the aircraft and the engine.

If this is true, then it may be a compressor or turbine disk failure. Such failures cannot be contained because of the high energy of the disks. Only a fan blade failure has to be contained in the nacelle.

It's better that it happens right now : a disk failure with the plane in service would have resulted in the grounding of all the fleet and the loss of millions for the airliners (and the manufacturer).

I suppose this is what the test flights are for, to red flag problems. That said, Bombardier really needs to steer the C-Series program more successfully. So much is riding on this and there have been far too many bad news stories over the last 2 years.

First African Operator and Existing Commercial Aircraft Customer Signs Letter of Intent for Five Bombardier CSeries Airliners

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/first- ... 6-71732620

2 hints:

The airline operates both CRJ and Q400 (Arik Air, SA Express and RwandAir)

The airline faces challenging operational environments and needs excellent range for hot-and-high performance as they expand into new and growing markets", (SA Express: Johannesburg : 1 600m or RwandAir: Kigali : 1 490m)

It seems that RwandAir has canceled its option for two more CRJ-900NGs (infos was removed from Bombardier website). I bet if the airline orders C Series, they will probably replace two B737-700 ex Air Berlin leased from ILFC. I think they will be an order for two or three aircraft, with others in option. It's quite a big order for the airline, we don't forget that they will be also an order for two B787s which will be delivered in 2017.
