A coalition of 40 stakeholders representing all segments of the aviation and travel industries sent a letter to congressional leaders in support of the Aviation Funding Stability Act of 2019 (H.R. 1108).
The legislation would provide FAA funding in the event of a government shutdown, enabling the agency to draw from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund (AATF) in the event of a lapse.
In a letter to Department of Transportation and Office of Management and Budget leadership, an industry coalition asked the administration to request full funding of the new grant programs signed into law last year. Under the law, Congress can appropriate up to $5 million for each of two new grant programs designed to attract technicians and pilots.
PAMA, in coordination with generous industry partners, has made available three new opportunities for current and future aviation maintenance professionals.
Award winners will be announced at the Aerospace Maintenance Competition awards ceremony, taking place in conjunction with MRO Americas in Atlanta on April 11, 2019.
U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) and aviation subcommittee head Rick Larsen (D-Wash.) introduced legislation to shield FAA programs and personnel from future government shutdowns.
Facing the possibility of another government shutdown, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has scheduled a hearing to delve into how the recent 35-day shutdown harmed not only FAA functions, but also the larger aviation industry.
In a major boost for airline accident investigations, two aviation leaders, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and Curtiss-Wright Corp., have partnered to develop an entirely new way for airlines to monitor and analyze flight data. Honeywell and Curtiss-Wright will use real-time connectivity to reinvent the Cockpit Voice Recorder and Flight Data Recorder — commonly referred to as "black boxes" — for the commercial airline, cargo transport and business jet markets.
A dozen years ago, Cessna Aircraft Co. launched its first mobile service unit (MSU) to provide emergency maintenance service to its Citation jet customers whose aircraft broke down away from their home base or a Citation Service Center. "We wanted to think about how we could bring service to them more effectively," said Kriya Shortt, senior v-p of customer service for the Cessna brand’s parent, Textron Aviation. "It's really the genesis for why we got into the business." But over time, the role of MSUs has expanded.
A group of Butler Tech construction technologies students started work this week on renovations at the JETS Hangar at Middletown Regional Airport to prepare the building for future students in the school's aviation program.
Business aviation services company Western Jet Aviation, which is marking its 20th anniversary, has expanded its existing full-service Gulfstream maintenance capabilities at California's Van Nuys Airport to include the ultra-long-range G650. "What better way to commemorate two decades of providing operators with alternative options than by providing them with even more?" asked Western Jet founder and general manager Jim Hansen.
The service we have just launched is event-based, designed for ad-hoc use as required for either scheduled or unscheduled maintenance. Essentially, a one-off engine change that may be completed at any location.
It is the first offering in what will be a wider suite of engine change offerings covering planned maintenance events and AOG support. We plan to launch these additional services this year, aligned to our TotalCare package and accessible through the Rolls-Royce CareStore.
Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp., along with Airbus and Delta Air Lines celebrated the entry into service (EIS) of the airline's A220 aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines. The momentous occasion makes Delta the first A220 operator in North America. The event was commemorated with a gate celebration at LaGuardia Airport in New York.
