Bombardier obtains same type rating for both C Series jetliners

Posted 25 November 2016 · Add Comment

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has announced Transport Canada and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has awarded the CS100 and CS300 airliners with the Same Type Rating (STR) which provides operators with significant cost-saving opportunities.

"The Same Type Rating is a reflection of the high commonality between the CS100 and CS300 aircraft. This is great news for customers that operate both aircraft as they will benefit from the cost-effective, minimal training required to transition pilots from one model to the other. The commonality also extends to spare parts, maintenance procedures and ground handling, which altogether represent significant financial advantages to customers," said Todd Young, vice president and general manager, customer services, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. 

He added: "I would also like to applaud airBaltic's six core pilots who recently completed their differences training and are now qualified to fly the CS300 aircraft.”
