Postby chornedsnorkack » Sun Sep 15, 2013 8:08 am

Bombardier promises maiden flight tomorrow, Monday, 16th of September, 2013, at Mirabel.

Official promise announcement:
http://www.bombardier.com/en/media-cent ... rcse.htmll

A more precise time promised:
More precise timing will be confirmed approximately 24 hours prior.


Public webcast promised:
http://www.cseriesfirstflight.bombardier.com/

Press conference promised about an hour after landing:
Representatives of the media that have registered may participate onsite at Bombardier’s Mirabel facility or online at Bombardier. Questions submitted online by registered media only will be addressed. Due to the expected volume of queries, questions submitted via Twitter or other social media channels will not be addressed at that time.


Something called "B-roll" shall be available at
bcamediafootage.com

A "B-roll" is supposed to mean a good quality video.

Bombardier is not receiving public spectators - they are only taking invited guests. Their neighbour at Mirabel, however, is admitting public, at 20 Canadian $ per ticket. Information in Quebec language only:

I just heard a radio interview with Robert Deluce, president of Porter airlines, Based from YTZ Toronto Island Airport.
He was at the trial run at Mirabel and he said the the aircrafts first run exceeded expectations, super quiet on take off and perfect for an urban airport. He added the the plane would reduce emissions by nearly 50% and produce at least a 20% savings in fuel costs. Porter has a conditional 2.29 billion order for as many as 30 aircraft. The conditional bits being that they need city approval to extend the runway farther into the lake.
