Bombardier just announced that the first flight of the CS100 Flight Test Vehicle 1 (FTV1) has been delayed by a month to the end of July.

FTV1 still needs to do power runs, and low and high speed taxiing.  As well, in their press release this morning, Bombardier says they’ve “extended the timeline slightly to allow for additional software upgrades for improved system maturity and functionality.”

Bombardier only applied yesterday to Transport Canada for FTV1′s Flight Test Permit, so perhaps the delay isn’t surprising.

We’ll continue to follow the story…
