In-depth tour of Bombardier CSeries’ technical capabilities – specially for the aviation geek

The Bombardier CSeries aircraft has not just pushed the boundaries in passenger comfort, but also possesses some of the best technical capabilities among modern jets. I was lucky enough to be led through an in-depth personal tour at Bombardier HQ in Montreal, by Sam Cherry – a Director at Bombardier who knows the product inside-out. And for the first time one the web, SimpliFlying has videos of what would exclusively be shown to airlines when they’re making a purchase decision (on a really cool touchscreen too!)

If you’re an aviation geek, you’d especially enjoy watching this interview as it covers a variety of in-depth aeronautical topics including:

  • The use of  70% advanced composite materials for the exterior of the aircraft [15-20% weight reduction] (1:23)
  • How a global team is putting together different parts of the aircraft (2:10)
  • What makes the CSeries such an environmentally friendly aircraft [20% greener] (3:55)
  • Why the engine on the CSeries is game-changing (4:45)
  • How the 3D computational aerodynamics result in less fuel-burn (5:15)
  • What makes the CSeries 4X quieter than other comparable aircraft? (5:55)
  • REALLY cool simulation of the noise-reduction on the CSeries (6:45)
