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.

United Airlines has been reviewing their next projects of adding a newer seat configuration to their fleet. Long overdue, United has put a halt to their newest additions due to a previous failure of the transformation of Boeing 737-700.

The Airline is still uncertain whether to commit to the addition of the new fleet per a statement made by United Airlines Senior Vice President Howard Attarian made addressed to employees,”There does seem to be an opportunity and fit for an aircraft with around 100 seats to fill that gap in our network, but on the other hand the problems with the complexity cost for a new fleet type is a big concern.”

With only two other seating configurations of seating on aircrafts, United has a 76 seat Embraer 175 aircraft and 118 seat Boeing 737-700.
Two US airlines already have included a near 100 seat configurations are American Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
American Airlines has 99 seaters that come in a Embraer 190 aircraft and Delta Airlines has 110 seaters that are placed in Boeing 717-200s.
Different divisions of United Airlines have different opinions on the addition of the fleet . United had been planning on adding the fleet until the arrival of the Newest President Mr. Scott Kirby putting a stop to the decision.   

United’s treasurer, Gerry Laderman has a different opinion as he states,” There is a natural need for a small mainline narrow body.”
To be able to change United’s plans and ungauged their strategy they will start carrying 737 MAX 10 aircrafts in their fleet over a progression of time ending in the year 2020. The integration of the 737 MAX 10 is planned to be able supersede the current 737-800s and the 900 models.

One of the main factor that cause for helicopters to be loud and shake is due to the rotor piece. The rotor piece is the piece allows for the proper functioning propellers. Airbus Germany has been able to capitalize on their idea of enhanced rotors to be albe to reduce the noise of the rotor along with the turbulence feeling upon launching. The companies that are involved with the innovations are German Aerospace Centre (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR with the help of Airbus Helicopters Deutschland. Both companies have joined forces to build a simulation with a 5-winged prototype in a handmade wind tunnel. This tunnel was their tool to be able to measure the difference from regular rotors to their newly enhanced creation. The Tunnel technology is known as SKAT (Scalability and risk minimization of technology).

Their solution for their enhanced wing performance they have developed the “fixed wing.” This wing will allow for the entire aircraft to be able to take off vertically and stay in a stationary position. The Active rotor will enhance many aspects on enhancing its ability to increase the ,” source of the lifting force and propulsion on the helicopter, also creates a series of aeroelastic and aeroacoustic problems such as high levels of vibration and the generation of a great deal of noise. While vibrations generally have a negative impact on passenger comfort and the durability of components, the rotor noise plays a particularly key role in landing approaches over populated areas.

During simualtions in the tunnel the noise with the fixed wing reduced the noise by 3 decibels. The top speed the helicopter was able to hit was 270 kilometers ( 167.8 ).
This latest innovation is the beginning of great things to come for both companies and their journey to create silent aircrafts.

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.

As we all know the new president of the United States is a very successful business man and has generated a lot of money and built an empire in his career. When President Trump was elected for president he was looking at important aspects of American economy, and a very important part of American expenses goes to the Military, Navy and Air Force. Having said that; billions of dollars are being spent annually to ensure that the American army can stay a super power and is ready for anything. The most recent negotiation deal was between the American government and Lockheed Martin where the US Department of Defense is ordering 90 Jets, F-35 Fighter Jets, for approximately $8.5 billion which brings the price of each aircraft down to $95 million from the previous $102 million thanks to president Trump where he is working on finding more cost effective strategies in order to save money for the American economy.

 The way the president sees it is that bringing the cost down is  great way to keep the American defense system strong and at the same time save lots of money in the process. In the end of the day this money belongs to the American people and can be used in various avenues that will benefit the entire country. Aircraft parts can be built at cheaper prices if Lockheed Martin can be smart about their costs. Lockheed Martin is the primary contractor but they are working with several different manufacturers in order to bring down the cost.

Gilat has just announced that they will be unveiling a new Electronically Steerable Antenna through a joint development project with Airbus as part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program. This fully embedded airborne antenna technology by Gilat will be on full display during an inflight demonstration on a C295 aircraft in support of the Clean Sky 2 (CS2) objective which was intended to push for a more efficient and eco-friendly transport. Due to their phased array antenna (PAA) expertise, Gilat was selected to develop a Ka band ESA inflight connectivity (IFC) terminal with the embedded antenna ray in the wing structure of the airframe which includes the radiating elements and amplification.

Airbus who is partnering with Gilat for the development of the airborne terminal which includes designing, prototyping, manufacturing, and testing both on the ground and in-flight level. Gilat believes the phased array technology will allow for high integration and embedding of the antenna into airframe structures and has scheduled for in-flight validation tests plans to be carried out in Seville, Spain. Gilat is replacing the original panels with new composite structures which will add IFC capabilities without interfering with the aircraft performance and maneuverability by reducing fuel consumption and avoiding aerodynamic drag. This will also eliminate any protruding components and will contribute to the reduction of COC2 emissions which was one of the primary objective of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program.

The US Navy has shown a revived interest in upgrading the Super Hornet engine that is used to power Boeing F/A-18E/F, EA-18G along with two other foreign fighters. Earlier last month the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) reached out to GE Aviation asking for a proposal contract for the company’s engineers in order to perform studies on an “F414-GE-400 core enhancement evaluation”.

GE revealed in a statement to FlightGlobal that NAVAIR expressed interest in GE evaluating the latest engine technologies that could be applied to the F414 Enhanced Engine. This is a revival of the efforts put forth by GE and NAVAIR years ago as part of a proposal by Boeing’s Super Hornet bid for India’s fighter competition in which NAVAIR Ltd. paid GE to test the durability and thrust upgrades in laboratory rigs.

GE also evaluated the F414 Enhanced Engine under the expectation that funding for a development program would manifest in the next two years however the follow-on contract never did materialized. With “core enhancement” a central theme in the newest NAVAIR study, evidence suggests that the three modules in the core of the engine are the main focus of the Navy which includes the combustor, high-pressure turbine and high-pressure compressor. NAVAIR’s renewed interest in upgrading the Super Hornet comes on the heels of a remarkable turn-around for the Boeing production line and the program appears to be winding down after completing delivers to the USN.

Newest flight technology has recently gone under stringent inspection to be approved by the EASA to be used in aircrafts all of the European region. Garmin International, Inc recently approved new international G5 electronic instrument that has been said to be used for future “fixed-wing general aviation” in European aircrafts . The EASA approval does not solitary come with just its own certification, but also includes another certification such as the supplemental type certification (STC).

In company of the certifications, the G5 electronic flight instrument has been placed on the comprehensive approved model list (AML) that also features a variety of different aircrafts. The AML is a list created by the FAA to advise material information to potential FAA customers, and other buyers. Professionals have said that the G5 can be used in lue of the “aircrafts primary attitude indicator or turn coordinator via a Garmin-held STC for the selected certified fixed-wing aircraft models.” A great distinction the G5 has to offer is its latest liquid crystal display(LCD) which is a change from the usual typical gyro-driven instruments. The G5 is sized to feature an 88mm LCD screen in every aircraft that will be equipped with it.

Per Vice President of Garmin International, Phil Straub

"We are grateful for EASA’s recent efforts and their dedication to implement simpler, scalable regulations that are economical and allow aircraft owners to more easily install modern flight instrumentation, which ultimately improves safety among many aircraft under 2,700kg throughout Europe."

Garmin is very pleased that they did obtain such rapid approval for their latest part to begin shipping and installing of the G5s. For the aircrafts that will be using an existing pitot/static system there will be an 76mm deep integration option available that will display “attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, slip/skid, turn rate, and configurable v-speed references.”

On January 22 2017, there was an article written by Kate Sarsfield for Flight International talking about how Bliss Jett, a startup business jet operator, is planning to launch second quarter of 2017 instead of in January (as its original plan) in order to fix loose ends.

It was January 8th specifically when Bliss Jets was supposed to begin its service. Here is what David Rimmer, the Bliss Jet founder and chief executive said about the deadline he set.

“We set ourselves an overly ambitious deadline, which wasn’t necessary. Nearly everything is in place, including the aircraft and the service delivery. However, following market feedback we have decided to introduce some changes to the service, so we get it absolutely right before we begin.”

Bliss Jet is considered a first class and business class airline who are looking for an alternative upmarket for transatlantic flights. Bills Jets is also targeting customers who are looking for lower cost alternatives who are interested in business aircrafts as opposed to paying for whole aircraft charters.

In the upcoming few years, Bliss Jets plans to operate its own fleet.

Arriving as usual in Japan on January 18th, as per the usual for the US Marine Corps F-35B fighters who make their inaugural trip to Air Station, Iwakuni. The Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 operated the Lockheed Martin stealth fighter on its first operational overseas deployment.

The squadron was stationed in MCAS Yuma, Arizona with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing before arriving in Japan. After initially declaring operational capability back in July of 2015, the USMC then converted the Boeing F/A-18D squadron to F-35Bs with a total of 16 F-35Bs expected to arrive year in Iwakuni according to a Marine spokesman who spoke with FlightGlobal.

Designed to replace the Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier, F/A-18 Hornet and EA-6B Prowler, this short take-off vertical landing variant means change is coming. With this deployment the F-35B has officially become the first US stealth aircraft to be based west of Hawaii and Alaska in the Pacific theater permanently. Lockheed F-22s and Northrop Grumman B-2s however are still only on a temporary basis deployment by the US Air Force. The USMC unit will not be alone for long as new F-35As will also be deployed to foreign air forces in Australia, Japan, and South Korean in the next few years.

Boeing 777 is very popular in the industry. It one of the popular long range wide body twin engine jet airliners. It is the largest twinjet in the world and it can seat up to 396 passengers. It has a big mileage and up to 8,555 nautical miles. It is made to replace other older versions like the 767 and 747. What is special about it is that it is the first commercial aircraft to be designed entirely with computer aided designs. Recently there has been an announcement that the production of 777 is going to be reduced starting August 2017. Even though Boeing 777- is one of the greatest. It has been mentioned that the production of it will be reduced twice in 2017.

The cuts are going to be done and instead of producing 7 per month 5 will be produced. This is shocking and reasons for this cut is unknown. Elizabeth Lund a Boeing vice president and general manager of the 777-program mentioned that "While the exact number of affected positions has not been determined, we will do our best to lessen the impact," they are aware that this cut is going to cause many problems for employees and many will lose their jobs but Lund added that they cannot control it. She mentioned despite tireless work by the sales team, orders have slowed. This is due in part to several ongoing twin-aisle campaigns that haven’t concluded in time to keep the rate steady. Therefore, we must adjust accordingly to ensure we are running a healthy business and the production line remains stable." These are things that they have no control over. Also, she expects sale to drop even lower especially after Trump becomes actually takes office and starts cancelling orders due to his bad international relationships especially with Iran. This will cause even more budget cuts.
