Airbus A350 XWB

On February 17th 2016, Airbus had a press release on Philippine Airlines. According to Airbus, Philippine Airlines is providing high efficiency and comfort for flights going to the US and Europe. There was a Memorandum of Understanding between Airbus and Philippine Airlines for an order of new planes. This includes size A350-900s along with six other purchase options. The Memorandum of Understanding was announced during the Singapore Airshow by Fabrice Bregier, the President and CEO of Airbus along with Jaime J. Bautista, the President and COO of Philippine Airlines.

There will be three different types of premium layouts for the A350-900 that Philippine Airlines has configured. These three layouts will be for non-stop flights from Manila to the US west coast and New York. Not only this, but the lay out will be in flights going towards Europe as well. The aircraft will be able to travel non-stop from New York to Manila (which is around 8000 nautical miles) all year round plus having a full passenger load.

Jaime J. Bautista talks about how the A350 fulfilled their needs as a company.
“After a thorough commercial and technical evaluation, the A350 came out on top in meeting our demanding requirements.”
He also talks about the benefits of the A350.
“With the A350 we will be flying the world’s most modern airliner, bringing greatly enhanced efficiency and superior passenger comfort. The A350’s range capability has been an important factor in our decision, enabling us to offer non-stop service on all our premium long haul routes.”

The A350 XWB is considered the newest generation airline and also the latest member of the Airbus wide-body family. Airbus has over 700 firm orders for the A350 from over 40 customers worldwide. By doing so, this makes the A350 one of the most successful wide-body aircraft ever.

c 130 aircraft

The French defense procurement office has placed an order for four Lockheed Martin C-130 aircraft, for the purpose of transport and mid-flight refueling of their helicopters.

“Direction Générale de l’Armement ordered on Jan. 29, 2016 from the US Air Force four new Hercules C-130Js,” the DGA confirmed in a statement made earlier this week.

The deal was given the okay by Defense minister Jean-Yves Le Drian at a meeting for the ministerial investment committee back in December. The deal will include two standard C-130J transports (which are to be delivered either late next year or in early 2018), and two KC-130Js (due in 2019). The contract was written up under the foreign military sale guidelines. These aircraft will fill a crucial need for the French military, and now they will be able to drop troops and supplies via parachute. In the meantime, Airbus Defense and Space are looking for ways to get their A400M to refuel helicopters mid-flight and allow paratroopers to jump from side doors.

Monetary terms of the contract were not disclosed, but United States Army Colonel John “Walt” Kennedy was able to give an estimated value.

“The contract is significantly less than $650 million,” said Kennedy, the chief of the Office of Defense Cooperation in Paris. “This is a very important capability for the French.”

The amount of $650 million is derived from the maximum value of the offer, as determined by the United States Defense Security Cooperation Agency back in November. The figure covers additional costs, such as potential upgrades to the aircraft and equipment, spare parts, and training. The estimated core value of the four C-130 aircraft and their Rolls-Royce AE-2100D turboprop engines (including the spare engines) is $355 million.

The French fleet currently only has battered-down C-160 Transall and Hercules C-130H transports.

Boeing's Low Production Rate

The Boeing Company, the American multinational corporation that manufactures and sells airplanes, has recently announced that they anticipate a drop in the number of airplanes they deliver this year. This announcement was made by Boeing executives during the company’s quarterly earnings call. Following a record year in 2015 with 762 airplanes delivered, the Boeing Company expects to deliver around 740 to 745 airplanes in 2016.

This decrease in production is due to the company’s transition from the Boeing 737NG to the 737 Max at their production line in Renton, Washington. The decline in airplane production is also due in part to Boeing’s announcement that they would lower the production of the 747-8 to only six per year.

“This year you’ll see a bit of a transition because of the Max [and] a temporary reduction in revenue, top line if you will, as a result,” said Dennis Muilenburg, the CEO of the Boeing Company. “But we can tell you very clearly that our long-term view here is increasing top and bottom line performance and cash growth year-over-year.”

Muilenburg stated that the transition from the Boeing 737NG to the Boeing 737 Max will result in a drop of around 12 airplanes. This is due to the necessity for two Max test articles to be built, as well as the need for “build ahead” airplanes to be prepped for delivery in 2017.

“We indicated last year that we did not anticipate the production rate on the program going below seven per month,” Muilenburg said. “In solidifying our production plan over the last few months we can confirm that view.”

Boeing 737 MAX

Boeing’s 737 MAX aircraft successfully completed its first flight on January 29, 2016. The Aircraft took off from a rainy tarmac in Renton, Washington and proceeded to take part in flight tests for about three hours before landing at Boeing Field in Seattle. This issue-less flight of the new aircraft marks a step toward the company’s scheduled delivery of approximately 12 737 MAX aircraft by the end of 2017.

The 737 MAX aircraft is the fourth version of the original 737, which made its first flight in 1967 and has since become one of the company’s most profitable aircraft. It features new engines manufactured by CFM International and offers other refinements that improve fuel efficiency by 14 percent. The 737 Max is meant to compete with Airbus’ A320neo which had its first delivery to Lufthansa Airline earlier this month. The first customer schedule to receive Boeing’s 737 MAX is Southwest Airlines and Boeing is expecting to deliver this first 737 MAX aircraft in 2017.

Analysts were surprised on Wednesday when Boeing said in a statement that the company was planning on reducing production of the current generation 737 to focus on the production of 737 MAX. This announcement led to a drop in value of the company’s stock by 8.9 percent and on the day of the announcement the company’s stock closed at $116.58. This was the company’s biggest daily decline in the value of its stock since October 2001. However, many analysts believe that Boeing’s shares are likely to recover as long as the company’s outlook on having a positive cash flow remains strong, as well as its commitment to dividends and share buybacks.

SSJ100

In Moscow, CityJet announced that it will buy 15 of the SSJ100 planes. SSJ100 is short for Sukhoi Superjet 100. CityJet is an Irish regional airline that planes on potentially purchasing these planes in Russia to Air France, which is considered a French carrier. With this purchase, CityJet will also have the option of purchasing 10 more of the SSJ100 planes sometime later in October 2016.

The contract between Air France and CityJet is due to be signed in February which will allow for the first three aircrafts to be delivered sometime before the end of this year after the planes get certified to be operated on the short runway at London City Airport.

According the source, “It is being discussed, it is up to CityJet. We just sell them airplanes. It is their commercial affairs. Among those interested in wet lease there is Air France.”
Air France might be provided a wet lease to CityJet. Here is what Sputnik News describes a wet lease as:
“A wet lease is where an airline provides a plane together with crew, maintenance and insurance to another airline which pays according to the hours operated.”

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is considered a twin engine regional passenger airliner. It was commercialized in 2011 and has its maiden flight around 2008.

Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, or SCA, has well over 60 Sukhoi Superjet 100’s that are in flight and in operation. Over 25 of the 60 are operated by Aeroflot airline, which is a Russian airline. 19 of these planes are owned by Interjet, which is a Mexican airline. 10 of the planes are owned by Gazpromavia, another Russian airline.

Air France was founded on October 7th, 1933 and now holds a fleet size of 235 and has over 200 destinations. CityJet was founded in 1992 and now holds a fleet size of 18 and has 18 destinations.

wings ice-free

Rice University has developed a break-through discovery in graphene nanoribbons. This thin coating in epoxy has been tested and shown to be remarkably effective at being able to melt the ice on a helicopter blade. Developed by Rice lab chemist James Tour, the American Chemical Society Journal reports that this coating has been back tested and is a real-time solution as a de-icer for virtually any surface having exposure to extreme winter elements such as transmission lines, wind turbines, and most importantly the aircraft itself. The lab laboriously and meticulously tested the thin coating in minus-4 degree weather. Examples of tests include applying it on a static helicopter rotor blade and amazingly when the coating came into contact with a small electrical voltage it produced Joule heating which is an electrothermal heat that instantaneously melted the ice.

This is made possible by the nanoribbons which is a conduit for electricity and would interconnect at a much lower loading level than other traditional methods. By unzipping the nanotubes, the nanoribbons became extremely conductive. The chemist at Rice were able to cross-examine previous testing to show that radar domes and glass can be de-iced through film which can be observed by the naked human eye. Perhaps the biggest advantage of this Graphene Composite which is obscenely expensive should you produce them in a large sheet, the composite could be easily applied at airports which would result in massive reductions in expenditures by the airports who are progressively moving towards a more environmentally friendly approach.

Testing by the Rice labs show that the nanoribbons comprised of just 5% of the composite held up perfectly in temperatures of 200 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The composite even provided an outer layer of electromagnetic protection that shielded the aircraft from lightning strikes! The studies and testing performed at Rice University were funded for and supported by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and Carson Helicopter.

Boeing’s Unique Plane Design

The Boeing Company, the American multinational corporation which is among the largest global aircraft manufacturers, has recently received a patent for a strange and unique airplane design. The design features an airplane which is capable of lowering onto shipping containers, at which point, the aircraft then locks the containers into place. The unorthodox design is equipped with a broad fuselage which opens underneath the airplane for the shipping containers to slot into. The landing gear of this unique design is wider than the shipping containers.

Cargo airplanes which are currently operating typically do not use the standard intermodal shipping containers which you can commonly see on cargo trains as well as cargo ships. Rather, freight carried on airplanes are transported using the unit load device (ULD) system. This system divides cargo into smaller containers, which are then placed onto pallets for transportation in both standard passenger aircrafts as well as cargo airplanes. Boeing’s unique design would allow for transportation via air freight in standardized containers in order to expedite the shipping process. Boeing’s design also allows the aircraft to carry more cargo.

“The aircraft may transport standard 20-foot or 40-foot containers or lighter versions of such containers that otherwise have the same form and features as the standard intermodal containers,” the patent states. “The intermodal containers may be loaded through an opening in the bottom of the fuselage. Specifically, intermodal containers may be arranged into a row. The aircraft may be then rolled over this row of containers and lowered onto the containers followed by engaging container corners.”

An aircraft which can lower its entire body, then lift more than 12 shipping containers would require a significant amount of design work and testing in order to accomplish. Only time will tell if Boeing decides to further pursue this patent design.

 Airbus aircrafts

In light of its recently lifted sanctions Iran is looking to strengthen its airline fleet and taking first steps towards this goal the country’s officials signed two agreements covering orders of new aircrafts as well as a comprehensive civil aviation co-operation package. The agreements were made known recently during Iranian President, Hassan Rohani’s official visit to France. Iran Air has since signed an agreement with Airbus for the acquisition of a full range of new Airbus aircrafts of which 45 of them are single aisle aircrafts and 73 of them are wide-bodied aircrafts. Also included in this deal are maintenance training and support services meant to help Iran Air get acquainted with commercial aviation services.

In addition to the signed agreement with Airbus, Iran’s Minister of Roads and Urban Development, Dr. Abbas Ahmad Akhoundi has also signed a comprehensive co-operation agreement meant to help modernize the country’s civil aviation sector and provide support to the development of airport operations, air navigation services, regulatory harmonization, etc.

Iran Air Chairman and CEO, Farhad Parvaresh signed the agreement for 118 new aircrafts which will includes 12 A380s, 16 A350-1000s, 18 A330neos, 21 A320ceos, 27 A330ceos and 24 A320neos. After the announcement was made about the two agreements Mr Parvaresh stated that

"Today’s announcement is the start of re-establishing our civil aviation sector into the envy of the region and along with partners like Airbus we’ll ensure the highest world standards.” In similar fashion Airbus President and CEO, Fabrice Bregier went on to say that “The skies have cleared for Iran’s flying public and Airbus is proud to welcome Iran’s commercial aviation back into the international civil aviation community. Today is a significant step in the overhaul and modernization of Iran’s commercial aviation sector and Airbus stands ready to play its role in supporting it.”

29 A320neo Family Jets

The Bahrain International Airshow was abuzz with news on Thursday about Gulf Air’s order for 17 Airbus A321neos and 12 Airbus A320neos. Appearing alongside Bahraini government officials and Airbus CEO Fabrice Bregier, Gulf Air CEO Maher Salman Al Musallam made the order announcement and spoke about simplifying the airline’s fleet structure with the procurement of these additional aircrafts. The airline’s current fleet consist of 6 A330-200s and 22 A320s and the acquisition of 29 new aircrafts are meant to fit seamlessly into this fleet. In his statement concerning the deal Al Mussallam went on to state that

“This restructured order meets Gulf Air’s future fleet requirement and our network expansion plans,” and in addition to that “As a result, I now look forward to furthering Gulf Air’s fleet modernization process while supporting our network and overall passenger experience enhancement strategies.”

The restructuring exercise at Gulf Air originally began in 2012, when in an attempt to increase revenue and compete with the long haul services provided by Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways, Gulf Air replaced an order for 20 A330s with a different one for 8 A320ceos and 16 A320neos. The airline’s long-haul service plans are now centered on using Boeing Dreamliners and just prior to its announcement concerning the Airbus order, Gulf Air confirmed that it had changed delivery orders for 16 787-8s and replaced them with orders for larger 787-9s instead. Gulf Air has also made plans to provide more services throughout states in the Gulf Cooperation Council. These services will focus on narrow-body aircrafts and the airline is currently in negotiation with Bombardier for 10 C Series jets.
