Up close with Bombardier's CRJ1000 in production

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Montreal and see production of Bombardier's new CRJ1000 up close. Airplane 7, serial number 19007, the eighth CRJ1000 built, was undergoing power on testing when I saw the aircraft in June. Bombardier hopes to deliver the first production aircraft before the end of January next year to either Air Nostrum (a subsidiary of Iberia) or BritAir (a subsidiary of Air France). The Canadian airframer had halted flight tests between July and February as the company worked through software issues with the command-by-wire rudder, a new technology on the CRJ1000.

See my complete Bombardier set on Flickr from my trip, which includes CRJ900 interior and flight deck, CSeries systems integration building (CIASTA), Chinese center fuselage test barrel, wind tunnel model, engineering sim and interior mock up.
