  • ANALYSIS: Russian Helicopters looks to civil market for renewed lift

    News | 12 Aug 2014 08:43 | Dominic Perry

    If you wanted proof that undoubted success in the military segment does not automatically translate into the civil sphere then you could look no further than Russian Helicopters. While its military products are in some cases class-leading – whatever you think of the Mi-17’s appearance it continues to sell in droves – the company’s two latest civil developmental programmes are showing teething troubles. The Ka-62, a 6.5t rotorcraft that features a great deal of Western content, is slipping ever later. First flight was originally due last year, but that has now been pushed into the second half of 2014. And the Mi-38, a 15.6t helicopter that made its first flight in 2003, has been crawling incrementally closer to certification.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Russian-Helicopters-looks-to-civil-market-for-renewed-lift-400638/

  • FARNBOROUGH: Airbus continues to forge ahead in single-aisles

    News | 07 Jul 2014 07:56 | Murdo Morrison

    It may be playing catch up with Boeing on widebodies, but in the single-aisle market Airbus has a clear head-start on its rival. While Seattle dithered about its narrowbody strategy at the turn of the decade, Airbus committed in 2010 to re-powering its existing A320 family with a choice of two engines. The Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-powered version of the 150-seat A320neo – due to fly for the first time in September – will be handed over to launch customer Qatar Airways in the final quarter of 2015, almost two years ahead of the 737 Max.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FARNBOROUGH-Airbus-continues-to-forge-ahead-in-single-aisles-400860/
