We still do not have a date, but sometime this month Bombardier Inc. is expected to have its first CSeries passenger jet test flight.

While the aerospace industry waits for the key event, insider holdings have moved up. Over the past month, four Bombardier insiders have accumulated 138,750 shares through the exercise of options; in total, 330,000 options were exercised at $3.22 (not shown on chart).

Three insiders subsequently sold 191,250 shares in the public market. That leaves Bombardier with above-median beneficial ownership by officers and directors.
