Bombardier: “In Aerospace, since the beginning of the year, substantial headway has been made in the CSeries development program and testing is progressing well. We have used the momentum gained over the last few months to meet a number of key milestones, however, some areas require more time. Together with our suppliers, we have now fully harmonized all commitments to the program's schedule. Therefore, the CS100 aircraft’s first flight will now occur by the end of June 2013 – a timeline that all parties have agreed is achievable. We will continue to give regular updates on the program, with a more detailed review during the first quarter of next year,” Pierre Beaudoin, president and CEO.
