    Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced that its CRJ700 and CRJ900 Aircraft are now certified to operate at a higher temperature. The CRJ Series obtained a new International Standard Atmosphere certification (ISA + 40 degrees Celsius) from Transport Canada (TC) and the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) in May 2018. “Our CRJ Series now have another distinctive advantage over competing regional jets,” said Patrick Baudis, Vice President, Marketing, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “This shows our strong commitment to meet the ever changing needs of the industry.” The certification process required studying the effect on engines, auxiliary power unit, environmental control system, Firex system, avionics, landing gears, flight control, hydraulics and electrical systems and aircraft performance. The ISA+40°C certification upgrade on the CRJ aircraft is available as an optional feature, both for new production and retrofit. American Airlines is the first operator to take advantage of this upgrade.

    Bombardier Renames Its Global Completions Center In Honour of Laurent Beaudoin

    Bombardier announced today that its Global Completion Center, where Global family of business jets interiors are designed, manufactured and installed, has been renamed in honour of Laurent Beaudoin, who retired in May 2018 after 55 years of service to Bombardier. Located in Dorval, Québec, the state-of-the-art facility, which was recently enlarged to host interior completion activities for the Global 7500 aircraft, will now be known as the Laurent Beaudoin Completion Center.

    “Throughout his distinguished career at Bombardier, Laurent Beaudoin was motivated by his belief that nothing is impossible,” said Alain Bellemare, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. “His entrepreneurial spirit was the driving force behind the development of innovative products that redefined their industries, such as the world-famous Global Express business jet. Laurent Beaudoin’s remarkable legacy will continue to inspire our employees to push the limits of technology, craftsmanship and performance.” Under Mr. Beaudoin’s leadership, the Global Express aircraft made its first flight in 1996, and in 1998, the Global Completion Center became home to some of Bombardier’s most highly skilled craftspeople, artisans and engineers. Twenty years later, the Global family of aircraft continues to grow and remains one of the most important pillars of Bombardier’s future.

    The line maintenance station at Le Bourget Airport is the seventh such facility that Bombardier has opened in the past 18 months, the company said, adding the facility will provide enhanced services, including wheel and battery shops, to the growing customer base in Europe. Technicians there are certified to support Learjet 60s, all Challenger 300 and 600 series, and the Global series, including the new 7500. The center will provide both scheduled and unscheduled line maintenance and AOG support. In North America, meanwhile, Bombardier added five mobile response team (MRT) trucks this month, increasing the total to 30 worldwide. The newest additions are based in San Francisco and Santa Ana, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; West Palm Beach, Florida; and Scottsdale, Arizona. Bombardier said the trucks are strategically placed to enhance its reach throughout the U.S.
