Bombardier has released the following statement regarding its Global 7000 aircraft flight test program:
“Safety is our top priority. Our test pilots, following an occurrence this week, followed standard procedures and returned to base uneventfully.
“The Global 7000 aircraft program’s flight test vehicles (FTV) continue to perform certification testing activities on schedule.
“Global 7000 aircraft have made consistent progress this year with FTV4 and FTV5 on track to join flight testing shortly and GE’s Passport engine received its Federal Aviation [Administration] (FAA) type certification in early 2016.
“The first six customer aircraft are now in production and final assembly line activities are ramping up.”
