Bombardier has achieved the first flight of the third CSeries airliner flight test vehicle on Monday.
The take-off of FTV-3 from Bombardier’s factory in Mirabel, Canada, comes two months after FTV-2 joined the flight test programme and nearly six months after first flight of FTV-1.
Two more aircraft assigned to the 110-seat CS100 variant are scheduled to enter the flight test program later this year.
