Vietnam airlines, alongside Pratt & Whitney announced their final selection on an engine for their collaboration on the A321neo Aircraft. Together, they selected a PurePower geared turbofan engine, they will be ordering 20. The closed deal will be valued at 1.5 billion dollars.  Turbofan engines have high thrust and good fuel efficiency, making them the perfect choice for the A321neo aircraft. Turbofan engines work by capturing incoming air using the engine inlet. These engines are mostly used for high speed transports, such as major aircrafts. Choosing this engine will allow Vietnam airlines to deliver superior environmental and economically performance. This overall could bring down the cost of gas the airline uses, in turn bringing down the cost of ticket prices.


Vietnam airlines was officially established in 1956, with a total of five aircrafts.  In 1993 the airline was recognized as Vietnams official flag carrier, and gained a total of twenty aviation enterprises. In 2002 Vietnam airlines introduced its brand-new logo, the Golden lotus, symbolizing them in the world of aviation as a world-class airline. Since then, the airline has made an obvious advancement in the world of aviation. The airline now is a major competitor in the Asian airline market, owning modern fleets that include Boeing and Airbus. As of today, Vietnam airlines operates in 21 different cities and 28 international destinations throughout Asia. In 2010 Vietnam Airlines was invited to join the Skyteam, one of the world’s largest airline alliances. The airline has come a very long way since its birth, something a company like Pratt and Whitney really admires. Pratt and Whitney have been with Vietnam Airlines since the early nineties and are ecstatic to see where the future takes them together.

XTI Aircraft company has switched to the hybrid-electric drive for its planned TriFan 600 ducted-fan, vertical take-off, and landing business aircraft. When companies make these changes, it is important information for us at ASAP Semi to be knowledgeable of the industries involved.

XTI has collaborated with Denver, Colorado-based company Bye Aerospace to advance the new system. This new system will make things faster and the software will run smooth. The TriFan 600’s Honeywell HTS900 twin-turboshaft engines, gearboxes, and driveshaft will be replaced with a turbine-driven generator, batteries, and motor. These battery upgrades allow the engine to run at its full potential always because it gives the right amps and takes a long time for it to die. XTI chief executive Robert LaBelle says the new advanced drive will reduce the weight and cost of manufacture the aircraft. “Our first prototype will be a full-size TriFan 600, instead of the 65% sub-scale version [that was originally planned],” adds La Belle, who replaced former chief Jeff Pino. These upgrades allow the engine to be at the top of all competition.


The program is being funded by XTI founder and managing director David Brody, crowdfunding stakeholders and private equity investors. Many problems that companies face when doing new projects is the lack of money because many things in this industry go wrong and it’s not cheap to fix. Illustrated as “having the speed, range and comfort of a business jet with the ability to take-off and land vertically, like a helicopter”. The TriFan 600 is a six-seat, aircraft with fly-by-wire controls, and two ducted wing-fans. Its wing-fans are constructed to tilt to achieve forward flight, with a projected cruise speed of 330kt (650km/h) and range of more than 1,500nm (2,780km).

At ASAP Semi, we are great at knowing about new projects that are being started because that’s how we get a great amount of orders. We like to know exactly what is going on when a customer calls, so customers know they can trust us because we are knowledgeable of the parts and projects going on. At Aerospace Unlimited we also provide a wide range of parts by helicopter or aircraft model

Harris has been awarded a grant from the University to join in the development of new unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Harris corp. aircraft products have a history in manned aircraft traffic management and those principals will now be applied to unmanned systems. This grant trails a similar research program where Harris and the University of North Dakota were developing UAS detect-and-avoid technology. It seems that the previous grant was a success since the team is continuing to work together and advancing to the next logical step.


According to Harris and the University of North Dakota, the unmanned aircraft systems could be very important resource saving technology in commercial industries such as power, railroad, and farms. Potential users are already taking interest and volunteering for test scenarios. Finding a downed powerline can be a very costly when there are miles of cable in unobserved areas. The idea of deploying a drone to find the downed power line seems like a great one, and it is, but there are huge hurdles when it comes to deploying an unmanned aircraft, especially when it is beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).

The most basic drones are considered VLOS or visual line of sight. This means they never leave sight of the operator. They are limited to 300m vertically and 500m horizontally. Next comes extended visual line of sight (EVLOS) drones. These must be controlled by advanced flight crew and operations must be approved by CASA. These are only limited by remote observation and can theoretically be unrestricted in distance with enough observers. Lastly comes the BVLOS drones which is where Harris and the University of North Dakota are focusing. BVLOS drones require detect and avoid technology to sense other aircraft and immediately move away. These have the most utility capabilities but are the hardest to develop. The University and Harris are working hard to bring UAS detect-and-avoid technology to the commercial market.

MH-139 helicopter is in competition to replace the U.S. Air Force’s UH-1N “Huey” fleet, according to Boeing revealing statement. In this industry of aerospace, upgrades and replacements happen daily. This is beneficial for us at ASAP Semi because it allows to be ahead of the game and stock up on new releases.  The UH-1N helicopter is responsible for protecting intercontinental ballistic missiles and transports U.S. government and security forces. At the Air Force Association Air Warfare Symposium, Boeing’s responded to the Air Force, stating that the Northeast Philadelphia-built aircraft was built to meet the U.S. Air Force requirements. Boeing also mentioned within their response that the aircraft offers more than $1 billion in assets and a lifespan expense savings compared to the competitor aircraft. Boeings response is based on the market-leading Leonardo Helicopters AW139, a modern, non-developmental, multi-mission helicopter. Boeing is a leader in the industry with many airplanes and connections to parts. Here at ASAP Semi we have a great relationship with Boeing because we do lots of business together, which allows us to get discounted pricing and inside scoop on upcoming events.


The U.S. Air Force UH-1N Replacement Program plots to replace the current Huey fleet, which entered service in the 1970s. The replacement plot has up to 84 new helicopters. Approximately 900 AW139s are in service with more than 250 governments, militaries and companies across the world. More than 250 of the helicopters have been assembled and delivered from Philadelphia.

When replacements come out and a certain customer is changing what they fly or begin to produce many aircrafts for a project, we try to find this information out before the project. This information can help us predict what parts will be needed, so that we can stock up on them and give them the best pricing possible.  Also, another thing that is important to these customers is deadlines, so here at ASAP Semi we try to focus on always being on time. So if you are even going to begin a new project or make some upgrades, let ASAP Semi know so we can get you the best service out there.
