It did fly, at least in the simulator we go a flight it... But I suspect that's why Bombarider's having the problem with sales at the moment. Given the rep of new planes like the A380 and B767 not meeting their delivery dates the reticence must be in the minds of potential customers. Although there are many innovations -- the control system is a hybrid of fly-by-wire and stick but with the pilot override at all times -- these are not radical nor as complex a supply chain, so the company feels this is a manageable program to meet its timeline. There are already wing and fuselage prototypes going through stress and other such ground tests, and the engines are coming along now that P&W just opened their new Mirabel plant where these will be built. It's a gamble but I suspect if Bombardier does pull off its schedule, the orders will start to materialize very quickly because while both Boeing and Air us are offering reengineer versions of their smallest narrow bodies, there is still a gap and Bpmbardier can fulfill fleet orders more quickly than the two giants with their huge backlog orders. I'll post more over the next few days about additional things we saw.
