Bombardier Gets Same Type Rating For CSeries
Bombardier has received the same type rating for its CS100 and CS300 airliners from Transport Canada and the European Aviation Safety Agency.
The rating means minimum conversion from one type to the other for pilots and maintenance procedures.
Bombardier said the CS100 and CS300 have over 99 percent of parts in common, with only the centre fuselage section longer on the CS300.
The CS100 first flew in September 2013 and entered service in July 2016 with SWISS. The CS300 had its maiden flight in February 2015 and will enter service next month with airBaltic.
