Constant Aviation's AOG division will provide 24-hour maintenance support at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Burke Lakefront Airport and Cuyahoga County Airport during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland from July 18 to 21. The facilities specialize in engine repair and composite services, as well as major repair and maintenance.
The Engine MRO market for commercial aircraft has the potential to reach $126.3 billion over the next five years with the top five engine OEMs generating 92 percent of the total.
The top three providers are CFM International, followed by the General Electric and International Aero Engines.
Dassault’s flagship Falcon 8X received U.S. FAA certification today, just two days after the French aircraft manufacturer announced European approval for the ultra-long-range trijet, a company spokesman told AIN. The 6,450-nm jet is expected to enter service early in the fourth quarter.
Hundreds of single-engine Cessna Caravan 208 aircraft are now eligible for conversion to three-blade aluminum props from Hartzell Propeller through an amended Supplemental Type Certificate.
The propeller is available with a TKS ice protection system approved for Flight Into Known Icing. This is the identical propeller that is delivered as standard equipment on every new Cessna Grand Caravan EX from the factory.
Unmanned aircraft capabilities took a big leap forward when an expert fighter pilot found he was no match for ALPHA. The artificial intelligence system was developed by Psibernetix, founded by a University of Cincinnati graduate. Gene Lee, a retired Air Force colonel taking part in the research, told UC Magazine this week that ALPHA is unprecedented.
The U.S. Air Force awarded contracts of nearly $1 billion each to GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney to further develop a next-generation military jet engine under the Adaptive Engine Transition Program. The service envisions the new engine powering a sixth-generation fighter and potentially an upgraded F-35 Lightning II.
In dual contract announcements on June 30, the Department of Defense said GE Aviation was awarded $919.5 million and Pratt & Whitney $873 million to design, build and test "multiple complete, flight-weight centerline, 45,000-pounds thrust turbofan adaptive engines."
General Aviation News
According to author Dan Johnson: In my many years in aviation, I've learned this about light aviation pilots: If 80-horsepower is good, then 100-horsepower is better, and even more is best of all.
It explains why interest was so high when Rotax announced its new 915iS that will provide 135 horsepower. It also illustrates why the 180 horses of the Titan X-340 is succeeding in the Light-Sport industry.
According to author Jim Koepnick: We're just 24 days from the start of EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and the excitement is building to sky-high levels.
We all know why Oshkosh is so great, of course: The planes, the people and the electric atmosphere make it the highlight of any GA pilot's year, with enough memories to last a lifetime.
