Canadian airframer Bombardier is set to conduct the maiden flight of its CS300 aircraft today.

The manufacturer has confirmed the date, 27 February, for the first sortie from its Montreal Mirabel facility.

Bombardier had initially aimed to perform the flight on the previous day but postponed it over weather concerns.

Its CS300 is the larger of the two CSeries variants being developed by the company.

Both the CS300 and smaller CS100 are powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1500G engines.
