In a clear and minus 21 degree celcius cold sky, Bombardier’s CS300 flew a nearly flawless first flight yesterday at Mirabel, Quebec. Aside from some telemetry issues, which delayed the premiere launch by about an hour, Bombardier should be on track for certification later this year and the start of commercial service in 2016 for the 135- to 160-seat version of the earlier CS100 which first flew in 2013. Watch videos of the first take-off and landing as well as the Bombardier Regional Jet that was used as the chase plane for the first flight in the Bombardier series of videos below.
