Gemini Jets 1/200 scale G2DAL701: Bombardier CS100 N101DU in the livery of Delta. Limited to only 750 pieces.
The Bombardier CSeries or C Series is a family of narrow-body, twin-engine, medium-range jet airliners originally designed by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace.
The 108 to 133-seat CS100 (officially BD-500-1A10) made its maiden flight on 16 September 2013, was awarded an initial type certification by Transport Canada on 18 December 2015 and entered service on 15 July 2016 with Swiss Global Air Lines. The 130 to 160-seat CS300 (officially BD-500-1A11) first flew on 27 February 2015, received an initial type certification on 11 July 2016, and entered service with launch customer airBaltic on 14 December 2016. Service entry saw 21% lower fuel burn for the CS300 replacing the 32-year-old B737-300s, with a dependability above 99.3%, and 25% lower costs than the RJ100 for the CS100, while the passengers’ and pilots’ feedback is positive for the cabin and flight controls.
In October 2017, Airbus and Bombardier announced a partnership on the CSeries program, with Airbus acquiring a 50.01% majority stake for no outlay, with Bombardier keeping 31% and Investissement Québec 19%, with a second assembly line to open in Mobile, Alabama. When the deal closes in the second half of 2018, Airbus will assist in marketing and servicing.
