Porter Signs Agreement for CSeries!
Essentially, these aircraft will be based out of Toronto City Centre just like their Q400s. The runway is already big enough to support both the take off and landing space a CS100 will require. And Porter / Bombardier claim the aircraft will not break any noise violations.
Here's the just of it off their website:
WHAT WE'RE ASKING FOR
Airports around the world are adopting new enhanced aviation standards, led by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). As part of this, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport may extend its main runway to accommodate a runway end safety area. Porter would like to increase that extension by an additional 10% at each end of the runway, continuing to stay within the airport's current boundaries.
The outdated jet ban
The current Tripartite Agreement, drawn up 30 years ago, bans jets from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Until now, we’ve used the quiet Q400 in order to comply with the agreement, while still offering downtown convenience to passengers.
But in the three decades since the Tripartite Agreement was written, jet technology – like other technology in our lives – has advanced rapidly, so we’d like the agreement to be reviewed. Jets are now much cleaner and quieter than those around in 1983, so we’re requesting a review that takes into account the CS100’s brand new technology, performance and sound profile.
I cannot wait to see the CS100 here in YYT so long they get approval for their YTZ alterations.
