Dec 18, 2015

Enterprise Minister Jonathan Bell has welcomed today’s announcement that Bombardier’s C Series aircraft has received its Transport Canada Type Certification following a rigorous testing programme.

Jonathan Bell said: “Certification of the CS100 represents the successful completion of years of design, development and testing of this all-new aircraft, the advanced composite wings for which are designed and manufactured in Northern Ireland.

“I congratulate the whole team at Bombardier and especially Michael Ryan and his staff in Belfast on this marvellous achievement.
