Bombardier Aerospace expects to conduct the first CS100 test flight in the last week of Jun-2013, according to Bombardier Commercial Aircraft president Mike Arcamone (Reuters/Financial Post, 06-Jun-2013). Mr Arcamone said: “My next milestone now is the entry into service. I’m not worried about first flight. It’s going to happen.” The carrier is yet to apply to Transport Canada for a permit to operate the flight, with ground testing still underway. Mr Arcamone added the company expects the aircraft to enter commercial service in Jun-2014.
