Qualification for the C Series started
Last year we were selected as the exclusive Authorized Training Provider for maintenance training on the all-new C Series aircraft worldwide.
The Bombardier C Series is a narrow-body, medium-range aircraft, equipped with two Pratt & Whitney 1500G geared fan engines. It is officially named BD-500, with suffix -1A10 for the CS100 and -1A11 for the CS300. The aircraft is equipped with up to date technologies like Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA), a Fly by Wire system and an Onboard Diagnostics System for maintenance. The C Series aircraft will contain a high usage of composite materials and larger windows.
We are already well prepared to ensure a flawless introduction of this new aircraft type in customers fleets. 15 instructors of Lufthansa Technical Training, Lufthansa Technical Training Philippines as well as of our cooperation partners Austrian Technical Training and Swiss Aviation Training started their qualification for the C Series in January in Frankfurt/Main. The practical training will be conducted later on in Mirabel, Canada.
The first C Series courses will be available as of May 2015.
