TO provide increased ATC capacity to meet the 50 and 70 increase in air transport movements forecast by 2005, considerable attention is being focussed on automatic data exchange between aircraft and ground facilities. For various reasons the development of standards and procedures of the...
AVIATION & Marine Interiors, of Fairoaks Airport, Chobham, Surrey, has just completed its most ambitious and extravagant oneoff interior in a Eurocopter Dauphin 2 helicopter, through McAlpine Helicopters, for an unnamed far eastern potentate.
NASA and an industrial highspeed civil transport propulsion team is studying whether to plan a potentially expensive series of flight tests to analyse performance of components critical to the success of supersonic aircraft.
To ensure the safety of an aircraft whilst in flight and to reduce maintenance costs, early detection of wear on engine bearings, tracks and cages is essential.
Air Canada has signed a major engine overhaul contract with the Government of Saudi Arabia. The three year agreement represents nearly 200,000 manhours of work and an annual revenue in excess of C20 million for the airline's Montreal technical centre.
