Pierre Beaudoin, the chief executive of Bombardier has said he hopes the completion of the CSeries’ first flight milestone would spur orders from some customers who are still undecided about buying the small narrowbody aircraft, Flightglobal.com has reported. The first flight test aircraft took off at Mirabel airport near Montreal on September 16. The event was delayed by eight months due to suppliers and required software upgrades. “I think there’re definitely airlines that are on the fence that will see this as a confirmation the programme’s moving forward,” Beaudoin said.
