-- whose reply you're that was Peter Gabriel talking about steam trains and airplanes which could be the theme song.
For our next guest bombard EA the world's only manufacture both planes and trains and now.
They are entering the mid sized commercial air space.
But to take on Boeing and Airbus let's head back to -- a big global Milken conference for more loose.
Is not the perfect song for Bob -- DA with the trains in the plains joining us now on -- box this is explicit.
Is -- bulletin lacking is the Lombardi -- CEO.
President here -- M I'll tell you something they're very few companies in the world that take on the challenge of making both trains and planes.
But we we like to think of ourselves as solving mobility solutions so movement mobility problems SOA.
Trains and planes and which cities growing and more people wanted to connect this great.
Let's get to the plains part of it you've got a new plane called the C series.
Which is getting a lot of -- why do I need to hear about this and what I say here I really mean the jet engines.
Are much quieter correct this is getting a lot of attention.
This is an airplane where we had designed from us from scratch.
We're gonna bring 20% fuel efficiency -- 15% more efficient.
And so far from our perspective.
This -- really brings a revolution in this category and were able to offer something unique to the airline.
Power the orders coming and I know Porter airlines which which -- -- that the pleasure of flying actually it's a nice little regional Canadian.
Airline that that he hit some American cities as well have ordered a few.
-- -- reporters one of our customer we -- the orders and the option we're above 300 so.
We're about to fly in June we'll -- the first flight one year certification.
And then we start deliveries so it's very exciting my co anchor David Asman is very eager to ask you some questions.
Well first of all is as soon as were all focused here in the United States on jobs numbers spirit with all this experience you got 30000 plus employees.
I'm wondering if you're expanding the number of folks your hiring and specifically whether you have enough skilled workers.
For -- operations.
-- spending in both aerospace and transport actually held together we have 75000 employees -- and the expansion are -- are happening mainly in skilled worker.
And that's that's one of the challenge we need to make sure that we were really closely with the trade schools.
To increase the amount of skill workers are you are you have I have problem that's -- I think we are you having problems importing some of the skilled workers because a lot of American companies.
Are are being prohibited from doing so by some some immigration laws.
I know I think we were very closely would arcane government but also in the US to make sure that we can that we.
We have the -- -- right skill to do the job that we need to do.
But essentially we find the workers locally.
Let me get to -- -- -- David I know you remember when this came through.
Warren Buffett and net jets the company that that he owns.
Made a massive purchase of your global 5006000.
Series just the whole family of global scramble 5000 to eight the -- he doesn't make those kind of decisions of Willy Nilly.
I expected this morning and I told them that I had -- and he said.
That -- and executives the minute they gotten that plane they weren't so interested in the gulf stream anymore and that is a big statement about that.
Well I like to hear that of course that this is an airplane that really brings unique features to the executive that travel for example the cabin comfort.
Yeah actually flying in the and the global the airplanes at higher altitude but as a lower altitude in the cabin gives.
Better comfort well it was a billion billions and billions of dollars in orders was he -- for the money.
What not but what -- about -- challengers and and our line break is needed and you look at other big customers you've had.
A big ones since Warren Buffett net jets yeah exactly one of our customer in Europe called this the -- ordered also a lot of global dozen challengers David.
That the -- we talked about Europe and the United States what about emerging markets there was great hope.
That countries like Brazil would would really expand tremendously is is -- less hope now -- you still bullish on on emerging markets.
Well we're very bullish we've done very well with -- emerging markets were very strong in China now we're strong in Brazil we're doing a monorail in Brazil.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- They -- those cities expands worldwide that's very good for to train business.
Well here in the trains during the -- think you'll stay with -- out of -- right exactly yeah -- volatile Bob -- -- thank you very much for joining us nice to be here we appreciate it David he's taking on the big boys with this new C series jet the Boeing is in the air passes.
