C Series full-flight simulator

While Bombardier announced no new orders for the C Series at the Paris Air Show, it was able to confirm jointly with CAE the certification of the first Full Flight Simulator (FFS) for the aircraft type. Lead operators Air Baltic and SWISS, however, were quick to praise the product. To date, 14 aircraft have been delivered, with 342 on firm commitment.

"This Level D qualification represents another milestone reached in the C Series aircraft programme and allows pilots to complete all their training in the simulator before they fly the real aircraft," said Bombardier Commercial Aircraft vice-president and general manager, Customer Services and Q400 Aircraft Programme Todd Young.

"With this qualification, our simulator reproduces to the highest level of fidelity, the characteristics of the C Series aircraft, as certified by the civil aviation authorities."

"We are proud to highlight another key milestone with the achievement of the highest-level qualification for the first C Series full-flight simulator in the world," said CAE group president, Civil Aviation Training Solutions Nick Leontidis. "This highlights years of collaboration with our longstanding partner Bombardier in the development of the simulator."

CAE is a global leader in training for the civil aviation, defence and security markets, having 160 sites and training locations in over 35 countries.
