VIDEO: CSeries undertakes low-speed taxi tests

Bombardier's CSeries is undergoing taxi trials as the Canadian airframer edges closer to the twinjet type's maiden flight.

The manufacturer has released video images of the aircraft conducting low-speed taxiing at Montreal's Mirabel airport on 16 August.

It shows the CS100 flight-test prototype, FTV-1, performing steering and manoeuvring exercises.

Bombardier has yet to commit to a maiden flight date for the 110-seat jet, which is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1500G engines.

It has shifted the first-flight schedule three times since originally aiming for the end of 2012, and has not given a target date in its latest forecast as it finalises software and integration work.

Customers have placed orders for 177 CSeries jets of which 63 are for the CS100 variant.
