Aircraft Propeller Service, LLC, one of the world's leading commercial propeller Maintenance Repair Organizations (MROs), announced that it has renewed an agreement to be a supplier to ATR's Repair and Overhaul activities. ATR is the world's leading manufacturer of turboprop aircraft, producing 50-seat ATR 42s and 70-seat ATR 72s. Based on this agreement, and a supplier to ATR, APS can provide support both to ATR operators covered under GMA (Global Maintenance Agreements) with the aircraft manufacturer or those without.
Flight school and aircraft rental provider All In Aviation, along with its maintenance partner Lone Mountain Aviation, is set to develop a new hangar complex at Las Vegas Henderson Executive Airport that includes box hangars capable of housing light to midsize business jets.
It will include 9,000 sq ft of office space, five training rooms, a classroom, 16-seat conference room, avionics workshop, library, pilot shop, parts department, and a 22,000-sq-ft maintenance hangar for Lone Mountain, the largest general aviation Part 145 repair station in the state.
In an effort to better define what it means to "read, write, speak and understand the English language" — for purposes of airman qualification standards — the FAA recently adopted international language proficiency standards.
In response to an increased focus on human factors, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) published a grading system for assessing English language proficiency in certificated airmen in 2014. The ICAO language scale defines six levels of proficiency ranging from preelementary (Level 1) to expert (Level 6).
President Trump's budget plan was released, including a proposal to privatize the air traffic control system, and aviation advocates were quick to respond. "The idea of handing over the nation's ATC system to what amounts to an airline cartel...is bad policy," said NBAA President Ed Bolen. AOPA said the proposal doesn't have much support. "After nearly two years, proponents of turning the ATC system over to a 13-member board have failed to move the proposal forward because of a lack of votes," AOPA said on Monday.
BendixKing recently added Precision Aviation Group (PAG) as an authorized repair, overhaul, and OEM component distribution partner. In addition to repair and overhaul services, PAG will provide sales support for BendixKing customers around the world.
"This new authorization, on such a successful product line, provides an excellent source of future growth for PAG and allows us to build on our comprehensive tip-to-tail MRO services for all of our fixed- and rotor-wing customers," said PAG president and CEO David Mast.
The first Pilatus PC-24 business jet has been delivered to New Hampshire-based PlaneSense. The fractional company has ordered 10 of what Pilatus has termed its "super versatile jet" for its ability to use unimproved runways. It already has 34 PC-12 turboprops so its relationship with Pilatus is substantial. The company bought four Nextant XTI jets to get all the operating certificates for jet operations and will eventually replace those aircraft when it has enough PC-24s to meet jet demand, according to Robb Report.
Remanufacturers world-wide are already missing out on billions of dollars in annual revenue because of a shortage of skilled workers for unfilled technical jobs. Developing the workforce for the future will largely be in the hands of the industry itself.
SIA Engineering and GE Aviation have formally signed a joint venture agreement to create an engine overhaul joint venture based in Singapore.
The facility will specialize in repair services for the GE90 engine, the sole engine option for the Boeing 777-300ER and -200LR, and the GE9X, the single engine selection for the Boeing 777X. It will handle work for both SIA Group airlines along with third-party customers.
Mention the "internet of things" to most people today and they immediately think of a refrigerator sending the grocery list to a smart phone or Amazon's Alexa digging through Cyberspace to send that special someone an original 1965 vinyl of the Turtles album "It Ain't Me Babe."
At this year's Singapore Airshow, however, Rolls-Royce engines took machine intelligence to a new level by launching its IntelligentEngine project to create engines that are not only more efficient and safer than earlier models, but are also able to communicate with other engines and sense the environment around them.
Pratt & Whitney Eagle Services Asia is on track to be handling full Engine Alliance GP7200 and Pratt PW1100G-JM overhauls later this year — part of a transition from relying on the shop's bread-and-butter PW4000 work as that engine continues to be phased out.
