Bombardier's Moscow Office Raided in Corruption Probe | Canadian Aerospace News | Scoop.it
Russian police have raided the Moscow offices of a Bombardier Inc. joint venture as part of an investigation into the Montreal-based transportation giant's business relationships in the country, according to documents and video footage reviewed by The Globe and Mail. 

The searches were conducted as part of a criminal probe into allegations of "corruption during procurement of railway equipment," according to legal documents. 

The general-director of the Bombardier-controlled company has received at least five police summons since the probe began in the fall, documents from Russia's Interior Ministry and the office of the Moscow region's Transport Prosecutor show...
Chuck Black's insight:

Media bias between Bombardier and the Globe and Mail

Media bias between Bombardier and the Globe and Mail | Canadian Aerospace News | Scoop.it
Media bias isn't just about how issues are presented. It can also be seen in which issues receive attention and which are ignored. 

For example, while Bloomberg, The Financial Post, Aviation Week, and many others decided to cover a significant announcement last week about the range extension on Bombardier's new Global 7000, the Globe and Mail completely ignored it. Yet, days later they published an article rehashing old and discredited reporting about our use of sales agents, under the pretense that it related to a shareholder proposal on the disclosure of lobbying activities and expenditures...

Innovation or Complication: The Emerging Regulatory Landscape for Drone Use in 2018 - Aviation Law Blog | Canadian Aerospace News | Scoop.it

The use of drones recreationally and commercially continues to grow exponentially in Canada. While the commercial use of drones has been governed by rules set out in various regulatory exemptions (or by the requirement to obtain a special flight operations certificate (“SFOC”) from Transport Canada), the recreational use of drones that weigh under 35 kg was previously simply subject to guidelines encouraging users to “fly safely”. 


More recently, the Minister of Transport issued a series of interim orders respecting these aircraft...

Wall Street analyst predicts commercial market exit for Bombardier

Wall Street analyst predicts commercial market exit for Bombardier | Canadian Aerospace News | Scoop.it

A top Wall Street analyst views Bombardier’s pending sale of the CSeries programme to Airbus as a key step in the Canadian manufacturer’s larger plan to exit the commercial aircraft business.


Speaking to the Pacific Northwest Aviation Alliance conference near Seattle on 13 February, Merrill Lynch senior equity analyst Ron Epstein traced the agreement to the hiring of chief executive Alain Bellemare in February 2015. 


“When the new management team came in place, one of their goals was to, how do I say, de-leverage the company from its reliance on commercial aviation. They quickly put Bombardier on a path to become a transportation and business jet company,”


Epstein says. “My expectation is, if you roll the clock forward that’s what we’ll see from Bombardier,” he adds...
