Bombardier’s CS100 Certified By FAA And EASA

The FAA and EASA have granted type validation to Bombardier’s CS100 aircraft.

The FAA and EASA have granted type validation to Bombardier’s CS100 aircraft.

The certifications from the US and EU regulator for the CS100 follow the type validation awarded by Transport Canada in December 2015.

The Canadian OEM said the EASA validation paves the way for the delivery of the first CS100 aircraft to launch operator Swiss International Air Lines at the end of June, while the FAA approval is a required precursor to operation of the aircraft in the US.

“Obtaining the CS100 aircraft type validations from EASA and the FAA marks one of the final chapters in our very successful test programme,” said François Caza, vice-president, product development and chief engineer and head of Bombardier’s design approval organisation.
