Bombardier expands seating
March 11, 2013, 01:51 pm
Bombardier, a global transportation company, recently announced it's planning to expand its seating from the 100- to 149-seat category to 160 seats in its CSeries aircraft.
Bombardier Commercial Aircraft President Mike Arcamone recently made the announcement about the expansion, saying that 160 seats will be offered on the company's upcoming airliner.
The aircraft manufacturer suggested that it had no plans of increasing the number of seats offered on its planes in 2008, but it has also increased the number of seats on the CS300 models from 130 to 135. The aircraft was almost lengthened close to two feet to accommodate the extra seating that will be included.
The first model in the CSeries that will be flown is the CS100 model, which accommodates between 110 and 125 passengers.
According to The Globe and Mail, the CSeries is Bombardier's answer to expanding beyond its two major plane categories of business jets and regional jets. Pilots who will be behind the controls of the new aircraft should make it a priority to purchase pilot insurance before testing the plane out. Pilot insurance can be a parachute for aviators if something goes wrong while on the job.
