Introducing Bombardier CS100, the world’s leanest and most cost-effective aircraft that was purpose-built and developed from the ground up. To set new standards in terms of profitability and environmental sustainability, this new aircraft type applies the latest advances in engine, systems and materials technology. Thanks to innovation in cabin design, passengers can look forward to a significant increase in travel comfort. 

5: A new meaning to travelling light

Bombardier CS100 is designed for the 100 to 150 seat market with many cost-saving advantages built-in such as an optimized five-abreast cabin delivering more seat width for every passenger, and other advanced materials resulting to an aircraft that is up to 12,000 lbs. lighter than its competitors.

C Series cabin was designed from inside out to provide the widest seats on a single-aisle aircraft, largest windows and up to 30% more carry-on bags. Extensive utilization of these innovative structural materials delivers substantial weight savings and drives the aircraft’s remarkable economic proposition and performance, opening up new opportunities for single-aisle operations.

4: Certified Technology

Bombardier CS100 is highly engineered and powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower® PW 1500G engines, an engine specifically designed for the C Series aircraft family. The latest design is combined with the state-of-the-art technology that sets standards and appeals for advances that benefit passengers and the environment.

Acquiring one of the highest by-pass ratios of 12:1 of any turbofan engine in the world, and with its advanced combustion technology and Fan Drive Gear System™, the PW 1500G brings reduced fuel burn, noise and emissions.

3: Advanced Aviation

The C Series is the first newly designed single-aisle plane that provides a consistent avionics experience that increases pilot situational awareness and reduces workload. The advanced flight deck accommodates two-member flight crew, comprising of a pilot and a co-pilot.

The aircraft’s cutting-edge flight deck includes large LCD displays as well as dual flight management systems with optimized control and display functions, navigation, communications, surveillance, engine indication, crew alerting system and aircraft maintenance systems that sets new standards for others to follow.

With 123 orders as of 28 June 2016, the first CS100 was delivered to Swiss Global Air Lines on 29 June 2016. Swiss began its revenue flight on 15 July 2016 with a flight between Zurich and Paris.

2: Optimal Balance of Leading-edge Technology

The C Series aircraft are ultra-modern, from engines to engineering, ensuring that operators enjoy value today and growth tomorrow. The aircraft is equipped with an advanced flight deck, fly-by-wire controls, advanced materials, Aircraft Health Management System (AHMS), and Pratt & Whitney PurePower® PW 1500G engines.

The C Series AHMS has the power to change how airline maintenance crews manage their activities, resulting in fewer mechanical delays and superior dispatch reliability.

1: Advanced Aerodynamics

The C Series aircraft’s reduced drag, boosted wing aerodynamics and integrated 3-axis fly-by-wire controls all contribute to the 20% fuel burn advantage. Through each phase of design, the C Series aircraft’s aerodynamics was developed using the leading-edge tools coupled with advanced engineering principles to design an aircraft with high performance and reduced drag.

To confirm the design and validate the aerodynamic characteristics ahead of flight-testing, the aircraft scaled models to underwent comprehensive testing at the best wind tunnel facilities in the world.

State-of-the-art computational aerodynamics combined with the 21st century super-computing capability and in the hands of highly qualified and experienced engineers, CS100 can deliver an expanded network, an increased productivity, a robust balance sheet, and a committed corporate citizenship.
