ABSTRACT
The article reports on Bombardier's review of aircraft engines from Rolls-Royce, Pratt & Whitney and CFM International which offer bypass ratios of around 10:1 for its proposed CSeries airliner. Bombardier hopes to choose one of the engines, or maybe two, by the end of 2007 as it works toward a launch decision on the 110- and 130-seat airliner within 12 months. The engines are said to be good enough to achieve the target of consuming 20% less fuel than current aircraft in the category.
