Airframers and suppliers are ready for a rebound in global business aviation next year, although views differ on the timing and shape of the industry’s recovery. When business does pick up, larger aircraft and new technology are expected to boost sales. The global market is bottoming out this year, as new business aircraft deliveries in 2010 are expected to fall below the dismal results of 2009...

Earlier this year, FAA awarded six contracts to industry teams under the Systems Engineering 2020 (SE2020) program. The SE2020 portfolio of contracts, with an estimated value of about $6.4 billion over 10 years, has been described as the largest set of awards in FAA history. Overall, the purpose of SE2020 is to establish a set of competitively awarded contracts to enable FAA program offices to meet their...

It’s getting increasingly rare for aerospace technology to drive other markets. It’s usually the other way around — a technology developed and proven in the commercial, retail market, for example, eventually works its way to aerospace, where it’s ruggedized for flight. That’s still the way it is, for the most part, in aviation displays, but there have been some recent...

In its 2010-2029 Business Aircraft Forecast released in July at the Farnborough Airshow, Bombardier Aerospace noted the first “green shoots” of recovery, offering hope the beleaguered business aviation segment is again rising. The Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), headed by former FAA Administrator Marion C. Blakey, also anticipates recovery, so much so that it is urging timely deployment...

Some readers may not be clear about the significant role Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) will play in virtually all aspects of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). However, as I think about how the current system operates, both in the United States and around the world, I see the importance of continuing the connectivity between the many elements highlighted in publications like the...

Apex Integrated Flight Deck Lends Big-Jet Feel To PC-12NG Turboprop It’s striking how companies tackle the same issues in separate ways. That was one of the thoughts going through my head during a short flight in a new Pilatus PC-12NG single-engine turboprop to get a taste of the newest additions to Honeywell’s Primus Apex Integrated Flight Deck. It’s tough not to reflect on the Swiss...

About four months into its most important modernization program for the testing of aircraft avionics, automatic test equipment (ATE) engineers at the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) are excited about how the electronic Consolidated Automated Support System (eCASS) program will bring “netcentricity” to avionics testing for the first time. One of the major benefits of that will be to...

Michael P. Huerta was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as FAA deputy administrator on June 23. He was nominated to the position by President Obama last December, but the appointment was blocked by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. The hitch: Cornyn wanted FAA to expedite approval of a certificate of authorization (COA) allowing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to base UAVs at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station...

It didn’t bode well that I arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport simultaneously with several other flights from who knows where. Because of that unfortunate coincidence, I had more than an hour to study the scuffed, cranberry colored, vaguely floral-patterned carpet of the arrivals hall as we pressed inevitably onward in the serpentine customs queue. Two years before, I had careened through the...

Though vertical takeoff unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have yet to make the combat contribution of fixed-wing UASs, four very different autonomous rotorcraft show near-term warfighting potential. The 16-pound Honeywell T-Hawk ducted fan UAS helps the U.S. Army scout convoy routes and joint-service Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams spot Improvised Explosive Devices in Iraq and Afghanistan. The...

The decision by the United States a decade ago to put laser-guided AGM-114 Hellfire missiles on the RQ-1 Predator, turning the General Atomics Aeronautical Systems reconnaissance UAV into a weapon, kick-started the still-unfolding UAV revolution. Still, armed UAVs, or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), account for just a fraction of the dozens of remotely piloted aircraft already developed or on drawing...
