Bombardier is pleased to confirm that it has closed the previously announced sale of its Amphibious Aircraft program to British Columbia-based Viking Air Limited.

This divestiture positions Bombardier to better focus on core, higher growth sectors: business jets, commercial aircraft and rail transportation.
