Bombardier resumes ground testing on CSeries
June 11, 2014, Montreal - Bombardier Inc said on Tuesday it has resumed ground engine testing on its all-new CSeries jetliner after an engine failure last week, and still expects the narrow-body plane to enter service in the second half of 2015.
The Montreal-based plane maker said it and engine
manufacturer Pratt and Whitney have determined the sequence of
events that led to the problem.
Bombardier said that flight testing was expected to resume
in the coming weeks and that the $4.4 billion CSeries will not
appear at the Farnborough Air Show in July.
