    Laurent, and son Pierre Beaudoin, singlehandedly nearly destroyed Bombardier through the Lear 85 Mexican relocation catastrophe, and by proudly trying to enter the crowded, overly represented medium sized jet market, with this boondoggle. They also destroyed the lives of hundreds with the fobbing off of Flexjet as a bone, if only Flight Options would buy the ill fated, never produced, Lear 85. After 55 years, Laurent finally got his stupid ass out of Bombardier, following the idiot son’s departure. But never fear.....Ottawa was not going to let Bombardier, a Canadian crown jewel to fail....no matter the incompetence of upper management. Boeing is still laughing at this soap opera.

    The real reason why Airbus bought this is because they could not come up with a better product and now Bombardier can't make a stretched version (CS500) that can compete directly with the larger A320 models.

    Hi, great clip, with the pronunciation of "Bombardier", it's pronounced (based on being a UK English word meaning a Junior Non Commissioned Officer (JNCO) in the Royal Artillery (and the Royal Australian Artillery, Royal New Zealand Artillery, and likely the Canadian Army at some time/I'm not sure if they still use it): "Bom (or "Bomb") -bar-dier ("deer")".

    There’s literally only 1 thing I dislike about the C Series. It doesn’t have a yoke, and I think it somewhat follows Airbus’s philosophy of computer over man. That doesn’t surprise me because Airbus is in a business deal with Bombardier and Airbus basically saved the C Series jets.

    The tax dollars the company is giving back to the government is more that 1 billion, on top of that the stock option was valued to 4 dollars and Bombardier wants to buy back the owneship of the goverment, so they will receive a way more that a billion. capiche?

    • GmodGTX

      I think that was more Boeing than Airbus, as Boeing used its power in the US to make sure that Bombardier had a 220% tariff slapped on all of their products, if they wanted to sell them in the US, which made it absolutely impossible for Bombardier to sell planes in the US. I probably don't have to tell you that Boeing is American, and this is how they deal with the competitors, if possible. Airbus on the other hand didn't do anything like that in Europe, as Bombardier was able to compete in the European market just like any other manufacturer. Airbus hasn't got a reputation or history of manipulating and abusing their power like Boeing has, and the different treatment Bombardier has received from the 2 companies is further evidence of this.
      It's probaby also a part of the reason why Bombardier was okay with partnering with Airbus, as Airbus are now helping Bombardier sell their airplanes by slapping their Airbus brand onto them. This probably also means Bombardier has access to the US market through Airbus, as Airbus is not someone that Boeing can just exclude from the entire US market, they're way too big for that.

    I've flown it several times. Beats the heck out of the older Embraer turboprops, it's probably 200 knots faster, and makes short trips VERY short. Good overhead storage (unlike their smaller plane) and quite comfortable. Bombardier has a winner here.

      btw, failing handoff of controls is also possible on Boeings..
      thats why the callout: my aircraft - your aircraft etc. is mandatory on both airbus and Boeing

    • Hans K
      Hans K Year ago +1

      that is more a CRM issue. at no point was there a clear handover of controls
      ie "YOU HAVE CONTROLS" the whole CRM failed at af447 and every professional can tell you this.
      this whole side stick vs yoke bs needs to rest. do you think that the coming 777x and 797s will have classic controls? no they will also have a directive mode which controls the input following the flight envelope.
      again AF447- CRM issue at critical situation ( pitot tube failure, untrustworthy airspeed indication and 2 pilots with 3rd coming from rest and no clear CRM)

    • Hans K
      Hans K Year ago +1

      so the f35, f18, Typhoon use joysticks aswell?
      from a standpoint of being a pax your statement is typical. and stating 2 fatal crashes with no further background knowledge makes it even worse. its like "we are connecting the 200 fatal car crashes to the fact that every car has a steering wheel"

  • bradar bradar

    I watched in another video that Airbus got involved in this project, and that that has helped Bombardier to move forward with it. I compared it with the Embraers 190/195 and the CSeries have great advantages. They have very similar take-off and landing distances, and the CSeries is said to be also capable of steep approach, but they have wider bodies (but not as wide as 737s and 31Xs/32Xs), and carry more people (but still not as many as the giants' babies, at the same time that the cabin looks roomier from inside), and their maintenance is supposed to be at the level of Embraer's E-jets. Embraer's 190/195 sales will suffer a lot after the CSeries enter service, but I don't see the 170/175 being affected. It would be interesting to see Embraer partnershipping with Boeing to come up with a CSeries competitor.

  • Law19157

    I don't see what's so special about this plane, why do Delta and Lufthansa want this instead of a 737-max or A318neo? Its too bad this plane is heavily subsidized and sold well below cost, they wouldn't have been hit with the 220% tariff by the U.S. government if they had sold it at market value.

    • Law19157
      Law19157 Year ago

      @Stuart Hecht Everyone makes claims on their taxes to reduce their tax burden, you're argument is not valid. Now if you could stop lying that would be great.

    • Stuart Hecht
      Stuart Hecht Year ago +1

      No they don't write checks. They just write off millions in taxes plus Chicago became their head office due to competition between states to get Boeing to come there.

    • Law19157
      Law19157 Year ago

      @Stuart Hecht No they have not. The U.S. government does not write billions of dollars in checks for Boeing without purchasing anything from them

    • Stuart Hecht
      Stuart Hecht Year ago +1

      Boeing has been heavily subsidized for decades.
      Note where their head office is now. It ain’t in the state of Washington !

    • Law19157

      1. If Bombardier wasn't selling below market value Boeing wouldn't have done that deal 2. The 737-700 an old plane at the end of its production cycle not a new plane like the C Series & is being replaced with the 737 MAX which isn't sold below market value. Old planes can be afforded to be liquidated.

    Ain't that nice to see these people in this video were so proud & well entertained by our Canadian Tax dollars. The Billion $ sure put lots smiles to these folks. Bet you they were laughing all the way to the bank regardless of any sales. Nice going Canada .

    • GH1618
      GH1618 11 months ago

      Tom Robie - The oddest thing about this aircraft is that some Canadians constantly carp about its cost rather than taking pride in its excellence. Perhaps that is because English-speaking Canadians don’t consider Quebecers to be real Canadians.

    • Commentator541

      It is essential for Canada to have the capacity for aircraft production given our geography. Billion dollars well spent.

      Joe Biden Year ago

      bcs airlines already have pilots trained for mainly the 737 and 320 so they don’t wanna spend money on new training cost for the c-series sadly :( this is also the reason why the 737 overheadpanel is not more updated than it is compared for example to the a320, training costs...

    • Serge Vivier
      Serge Vivier Year ago

      Trash4Cash, good question, They had engines problems with the P&W gear engines and also they were near bankrupt so they had to reduce spending and laid off workers. Now that Airbus owns the C series, things will change and some day Quebec will be repaid.
