Aircraft Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) plans to launch a regional airliner within the next five years that will be all-composite. They are researching potential for 100 plus seat passenger aircraft in a five-year time span after the launch of the airliner. Chief executive Temel Kotil stated he was setting a different timeline for the aircraft than the airline, because his workers will have more experience after these next five years. Due to all the needed information and knowledge that passenger aircrafts require to build, only after that five-year timeline can they start developing the passenger aircrafts. Their focus for now is on defense, and that is something they are very successful with for the time being. Not only will the decade long plan have 100 plus seat aircrafts, but these aircrafts will be made from full-composite materials.
The only downside to the Turkish Aerospace Industries’ plans, is that they get in the way of a Turkish regional aircraft program lead by the SNC, a US firm Sierra Nevada. The SNC has gone far in their planning, they have certain certificates that are needed along with already choosing Pratt & Whitney Canada as their supplier of engines. They have even put in order with Pratt & Whitney so far in advanced, their orders are spanning into 2019. If TAI’s plan intrudes on SNC’s plans. it could cost SNC a lot of money and time that they cannot afford to lose. TAI and the Turkish government have been in contact in the past, and there was mention of them working together, but luckily for SNC nothing was ever finalized.

Airbus, an international pioneer in the aerospace industry, has collaborated with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, a company that delivers manufacturing solutions, to create 3-D printed polymer components for its A350 XWB aircraft. Stratasys will use its production- grade thermoplastics to build strong, long lasting and stable parts required for the aircraft. Stratasys will also employ its ULTEM 9085 material to print the components needs for system installation. This agreement and the use of 3-D printed parts will allow Airbus to achieve supply cost flexibility and competitiveness. It will also reduce material consumption and waste, making it a great investment for the environment.
This agreement will allow for Stratasys to be able to print and deliver multiple parts on demand to airbus, allowing for improved reactivity and shorter turnaround times aka not having to wait three to four weeks for factory production. Stratasys has an expertise in building parts that are aircraft ready, they also have a process that sets them apart from everyone else allowing them to improve quality procedures and controls. There are clearly so many advantages to 3-D parts, airbus is taking full advantage of this new era. Now almost all airbus aircraft parts will be made from 3D materials.
As a company, Stratasys began making 3-D parts in 2014 using ULTEM 9085 material to build applications that were available to be put on an aircraft. It was in the same year that the production of flying components, specifically for Airbus, were starting to be made. This is a huge step towards the future for the aerospace world. No longer will parts be extremely heavy, take forever to make, or be highly fragile and breakable. 3-D part printing is not only the future of Airbus parts but the future of aerospace, and soon many more aircrafts will jump on the train.
Boeing, the world’s largest and leading aircraft company, recently completed its KC-46 tanker electromagnetic testing. The testing team included the US Airforce and the Naval air systems command. The testing was conducted to determine whether or not the aircraft would operate safely while going through electromagnetic fields produced by radars, radio towers and other systems under mission conditions. The KC-46 tanker has multiple hard-shell shielding technologies that are all designed into the aircraft to nullify any bad effects on the aircraft.
The KC-46 is a military aircraft, it goes by the code name Pegasus. It is a widebody, multirole tanker that has the ability to refuel all United States allied and coalition military aircraft that are adaptable with international aerial refueling procedures. This military aircraft is designed to carry passengers, patients and cargo. It is also able to detect, avoid, overpower and survive threats. The KC-46 does this using its multiple layers or protection, as mentioned above. The testing conducted for the KC-46 confirms that the number one key risk factor can be retired.
The testing for the military aircraft was conducted on the Naval Air Station Patuxent River for electromagnetic pulse. Testing also took place at the Naval Electromagnetic Radiation Facility, and the Benefield Anechoic Facility at the Air force base in Edwards California. The testing involved hitting the military aircraft with large pulses from coil/transformer that was situated directly above the aircraft. The main goal was to make the simulation as real as if it were happening while in flight. The KC-46 military aircraft has protection that ranges from pulse hardening to cockpit armor.
This aircraft also has an unbelievable lifecycle, which overall makes it a cost-efficient choice. This includes redundant displays and controls which improves controls for improved instruction and reliability.
Conflicts are a huge problem that people in the aerospace industry must deal with, which can make things difficult because certain companies might not want to sell you their parts. This can be difficult because they might be the only supplier with that specific part, so you are out of luck and won’t be able to get that part. Currently the U.S. is dealing with a problem that is catching up to the fifth-generation fighter aircraft capabilities. This situation is putting the F-35 fighter jet program at risk to ongoing cyber vulnerabilities. If the United States does not figure out a way to diversify or improve their advantage in the stealth and weapon capacity, then other competitors will be passing them up and taking the lead. So, they are going to take the good from the fourth generation and their new ideas to create a fifth generation that stands out from the other threats.
One advantage that the United States has right now with the ongoing war in Syria is that Russia has not yet found a way to detect the fifth-generation fighter jets. So right now, the U.S. only flies fifth generations because if they fly the fourth generation, Russia created a S-400 that can eliminate any fourth-generation fighter jet. So, with this advantage we can hold these threats at risk, and continue to have American domination where we need to across the globe. With the new program incorporated in the F-35’s, it gives the United States an edge over competitors to ensure the jets software is fully operational. The new software that is going to be placed in the F-35’s called Block 3F will give the jet ability to process any radar signal, track moving targets, and operate the planes weapons system.
One problem that they are still dealing with is the jet is susceptible to cyber branches even with the numerous reassessments of its software. Another problem that they are is their off-board systems that are connected to various systems that enemies might be able to hack into. In the past, this system was hacked and the information could get to the Chinese government. These threats caused the air force to do extensive training on any troop that is working on the fighter jets.
Here at ASAP Parts Online we deal with the threats of people hacking the systems or stealing credit card information, so we have to be extra careful on the type of things we look up or make sure the company we are dealing with is an actually business.
On December 7th 2016, Bohemia Interactive wrote an article talking about how Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) is working on creating a flight training and mission rehearsals through their Virtual Battlespace or VBS. Bohemia Interactive Simulations is a leader in military training and simulation software.
This VR technology is based on the F/A-18 Super Hornet training system which was part of the contract for the Naval Air Warfare Center.
Here is what John Burwell, BISim’s business development director has to say this new technology.
“We sought to leverage emerging VR technology to create a highly realistic yet affordable training solution that was portable enough to be transported for use in an aircraft carrier ready room. Results have exceeded expectations and show that the latest HMD and tracking technology have passed the threshold for widespread usability. Discomfort associated with previous application of VR technologies have been virtually eliminated.”
Bohemia Interactive Simulations was founded in 2001 which uses an in house team of engineers to create cost effective simulation software and components for military applications.

Andreas Rupprecht, a known Chinese aviation expert and Regular Aircraft contributor has recently published pictures of a newly discovered Chinese air-launched missile under the wing of the Shenyang J-16 fighter. Analysts believe it is a big one at about 6m long based.
The J-16 fighter was reverse-engineered from the Allied Witan Co Sukhoi Su-30MKK multi-role fighter bomber. This aircraft is part of the People’s Liberation Army Airforce also known as PLAAF for short.
The topic of the missile, dubbed PL-XX, and its intended purpose has become a trending topic in different forms of social media outlets. People are discussing the possibilities as the exact capabilities of the missile are still unknown. From pictures, it is apparent that the missile has no forward guidance fins which is uncommon in medium-long range air to air weapons released by China in recent years. Some of these releases includes designs of the Chengdu J-20 stealth fighter internal missiles.
Comparing the new model’s design to the previously released AAMs has caused speculation of whether the new weapon is even an AAM but an anti-radar missile instead. It could be an ultra-long range weapon meant to destroy other aircrafts like the E-3 AWACS surveillance aircraft, or intelligence gatherers like the RC-135. The weapon being carried by a J-16 is not typical for air to ground vessels. Others speculate that the missile is an anti-satellite weapon much like the US Air Force F-15A Eagle from the 80s. Though China has worked on creating and testing anti-satellite weapons, none have been intended to be carried by fighters. Therefore, a conclusion has not been made for the purpose of the missile.

On Sept 29, 2016 Country E. Howard wrote an article for Intelligent Aerospace talking about how Harris Corporation and Boeing are teaming up in order to provide their service for future military aircrafts. They are working on advanced core missions that includes aircrafts communications, sensors, displays, and navigation.
Harris Corporation will be the one producing the main hardware that will be then implemented into Boeing’s Secure Computing Solution hardware. This hardware will then have Boeing Phantom Fusion software and a multi-level network. Harris Corporation will have their custom advanced security and commercial off the shelf processors (also known as COTS) in order to provide mission processing hardware on open systems architecture.
Here is what Ed Zoiss, the Harris Electronic Systems president has to say about this.
“Our core processor hardware adapts to the mission needs of any military aircraft in a cost-effective way. We will use our expertise in ruggedized, high-performance COTS hardware to provide the processing power and cross-platform applicability needed for mission success.”
Harris Corporation is considered to be a large technology provider which supports over 100 countries. The company has over $7 billion in annual revenue along with over 20,000 employees worldwide. There are four different categories that Harris Corporation works under: Communication Systems, Space and Intelligence Systems, Electronic Systems, and Critical Networks.

Kelsey D. Atherton wrote an article for Popular Science on July 29, 2016 which talks about how there is an engineer from California that is working to build a flying car that is based off of the gyrocopter. The engineer is named Dezso Molnar. The Bell Helicopter looks similar to the skeleton of an automobile. On the body of the skeletal car is a pusher propeller which needs an active rotor on top.
Molnar also doubles as a pilot. The way he sees this is that he wants to create a flying car that will be the catalyst to creating a flying car racing league.
This prototype plane that Molnar has been working on has even been approved by the FAA. The FAA has considered this to be a “light airplane.” This light plane can be found in the Mojave Desert.
Here is what Atherton has to say about how to mechanics of the gyrocopter work.
“Molnar’s plan is to combine this body with the rotor from a gyrocopter. While their overhead rotor makes them look similar to helicopters, gyrocopters have a major difference: in a helicopter, an engine spins the rotor, providing both power and lift. In a gyrocopter, a propeller pulls the vehicle forward, and the rotors spins passively, generating lift as an overhead spinning wing.”
Most of Molnar’s free time is spent working on the flying car. His day job includes working for a company that does water installations on a commercial level including things such as the fountain at the Bellagio hotel.

On June 30th 2016, Aviation Pros wrote an article from PRNEWSWIRE talking about how 700 of local business leaders went to celebrate Boeing’s 100th anniversary. These 700 local business leaders were from the Pacific Northwest. Included into the 700 local business leaders was Alaska Airlines. The local business leaders celebrated at the Museum of Flight. At the Museum of Flight, there was a release of the new Alaska 737 which was painted in a special edition centennial paint color scheme.
Here is what Brad Tilden, Alaska Airline’s CEO, has to say about this.
"Boeing is a global aerospace leader and our country's leading exporter, and people throughout the Northwest should be very proud of them. They design and build amazing jets like the 737, and the more than 77,000 local employees of Boeing strengthen the economic and social fabric of our region. All of us at Alaska want to congratulate them on their 100th anniversary. We are truly honored to be Boeing's hometown partner, today, and into Boeing's next century."
On the Alaska 737 special edition plane, there is “100 years strong” painted across both sides of the 900ER fuselage. This is considered the 153rd Boeing 737 that is released. Alaska Airlines is happy to announce their fifty years together between them and the aircraft manufacturer.
The official birthday for Boeing is on July 15, 1916. That date this year will be considered the day after William Boeing first incorporated Pacific Aero Products in Seattle.
Now, Boeing has almost 160,000 employees working for them all over the world.

Boeing hosted a press conference at its Mesa, Arizona aircraft facility on June 7 that showcased the newly assembled AH-6i Little Bird attack and exploration helicopter. The Little Bird is planned to be delivered to Saudi Arabia at the end of June to the Saudi Arabia National Guard (SANG). Currently numbered 61001, the helicopter has recently undergone the last part of the assembly process but has yet to undergo flight testing. The final step is delivering it to Saudi Arabia, one of the recipients of the new upsurge of U.S. weaponry distribution. Boeing is currently working with the U.S. Army on an agreement to supply foreign buyers with 72 Little Birds.
24 AH-6i helicopters are part of a 2014 foreign military sale (FMS). 7 of those are at different stages of the building process. The fuselages for the AH-6is built for Saudi Arabia have been provided by MD Helicopters, with other stages of manufacturing taking place in Monterrey, Mexico. Pilots from Saudi Arabia and pilots that will instruct in Saudi Arabia will train at Boeing’s Mesa, Arizona location. The Defense Contract Management Agency will carry out flight tests for Boeing’s AH-6i Helicopters before delivery to the Saudi Arabia National Guard.
The Little Bird has been designed for light attack with the inclusion of semi-active laser Hellfire missiles, 70mm missiles, an M-134 mini gun, and a .50 caliber GAU-19B machine gun. It also includes a small sensor with laser rangefinder and a laser pointer.
The 72 Little Birds contract with the U.S. Army was established to expedite foreign military sales. Though Boeing’s director of global sales and marketing, Mark Ballew, did not clearly state what countries were negotiating purchases of the helicopter models, he did express knowledge of Jordan showing interest in the Little Birds. Saudi Arabia is the only official recipient of the attack helicopter thus far. This is only part of SANG’s defense purchases which include 36 AH-64E Apaches, 36 AH-6is, 72 Sikorsky UH-60M Blackhawks, and 12 MD Helicopters MD-530Fs.

The Navy has requested for their Boeing F/A-18E/F and EA-18G combat aircraft to be equipped with better transmitting technology. This innovation goes by Radio Frequency Blanking Unit (RFBU) and will allow an advanced receiving device to use two or more microwave/RF signals without interference with one another. The order to the Boeing Defense, Space & Security segment in Saint Louis was placed on Wednesday May 18th 2016.
The (RFBU) will approximately cost 13.5 million US dollars for building and testing. This prototype is designed to fit right in and take over the position of the Navy’s previous signal transmitter, Enhanced Interference Blanking Unit (EIBU). The EIBU is most commonly used on the Navy’s carrier- based F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet jet fighter bomber and EA-18G Growler Electronic Warfare aircrafts.
By replacing the EIBU with the RFBU Boeing is replacing hard to find parts with more efficient ones, removing all unnecessary electronic parts. The swap of signal receivers, the Navy hopes to prevent the crossing of signals upon Navy planes which have antennas so near to each other. The task of the developing these new receivers was giving to Boeing since they did manufacture F/A-18E/F and EA-18G aircraft.
“Is the only source with the knowledge, expertise, facilities, and qualified personnel to build the new RFBU quickly enough to meet Navy needs”Navy officials say
“One of the many tasks the RFBU is for multi-functional Informational Distribution System (MIDS) Low Volume terminal (LVT) which will allow a voice communication and secure data network using a Link-16 tactical wireless networking structure. “MIDS LVT provides enhanced situational awareness, positive identification of participants within the network, secure fighter-to-fighter voice and data networking, secure voice communications, and tactical air navigation.”
On the Naval aircrafts the RFBU and the MIDS LVT work hand in hand to increase input/output signal capacity on board.

Lilium, a Munich based Start-up Company which is hosted in the Bonney Forge Corporation business incubator, has recently been developing the first of its kind vertical takeoff and landing aircraft intended for personal use. This aircraft has been designed to seat two passengers and will potentially open up the door to a new class of airplanes available from 2018.
“Our goal is to develop an aircraft for use in everyday life”said the CEO and one of the company’s founders of Lilium, Daniel Wiegand.
“We are going for a plane that can take off and land vertically and does not need the complex and expensive infrastructure of an airport”Wiegand added.
“To reduce noise and pollution, we are using electric engines so it can also be used close to urban areas.”
This electric two-seat vertical takeoff and landing aircraft is intended to be quitter, simpler, as well as more environmentally friendly in comparison to traditional aircrafts. Lilium was founded in February of 2015 by four doctoral students and engineers from the Technical University of Munich in Germany. The company has already developed the concept with various scale, 25 kg prototypes. Now, Lilium is continuing to develop its first ultralight vertical takeoff and landing aircraft.
“Today, general public aviation offers fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. Conventional aircraft are efficient, fast and available in many sizes but require airports often 20–50 km from city centres because of their space-hungry runways and the high noise levels,”Suggested Heli Hub.
“As a VTOL aircraft, the Lilium’s fans point downwards to give it the necessary lift, but once at a safe height, the engines will swivel, allowing it to achieve speeds of up to 400kmph at an altitude of nearly 10,000ft”Reported Colm Gorey from Silicon Republic.
“In cruising mode, the craft is expected to have a range of around 500km and can be charged like modern electric vehicles (EVs) using a household wall socket.”
Qatar Airways has announced that they canceled the order for the first Airbus Group SE’s A320neo plane. Qatar Airways as the initial launch customer and the airline was scheduled to receive the first plane of that order last year. On Friday, Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker cited months of delays to the single-aisle plane promised have allowed Qatar Airways to invoke a contractual cancellation clause. Even more troubling, the Doha-based airline who is one of Airbus’s biggest supporter and champion could potentially walk away from more A320neo orders once they have triggered the remaining walkaway clauses.
Airbus and the plane’s engine maker United Technologies Corp. have had a myriad of issues resulting in being unable to get the A320neo up to the performance standards that is spelled out explicitly and contractually. This has led to significant delays and has elicited a response from Fabrice Bregier. The head of Airbus’s plane making unit has expressed his apologies and admitted he fully understands why the customers are unsatisfied though he declines to go into more details about the contractual issues at hand.
Under the original contract Qatar Airways should have five A320neos in service by now and Mr. Al Baker expressed his extreme displeasure citing the delays as “making a huge impact on my bottom line”. This is yet another incident in a long line of Banjo Corp Parts that are undermining the commitments these plane makers have promised to their customers.
Airbus and Boeing have stumbled and failed to meet delivery dates and obligations due to aggressive ramp-up of productions spurred by huge orders. They failed to properly account for production delays and setbacks while taking in more orders than they could deliver. Airbus is taking assault on several fronts, as the newest long-range plane the A350 is running behind on schedule because of cabin interior component shortages in addition to the issues with the A320neo due to the concerns with engine performance.
Airbus believes that once hardware fixes are validated coupled with the new software upgrade to deal with spurious fault warnings, they would be able to deliver more of the A320neo planes. Qatar Airways is currently discussing buying the current version of the Boeing 737s and upgrading them to the 737 Max as a fall back option.
On June 5th 2016, Andreas Spaeth posted an article on Airways News. She wrote about on how June 3rd, a bunch of CEOs from top important airlines got together to sit in the same aircraft on a trip from Dublin to Zurich. The model of the plan that the CEOs of the airline companies took was the BBA505. June 3rd at a time during the IATA for the annual meeting at the Irish capital. This even is followed by a Chief Executive Board meeting of all Star Alliance in Switzerland.Here’s what Spaeth had to say about SWISS and the airlines.
“SWISS celebrates its tenth year as a Star member, and at the same time will operate the world premiere of this first all-new passenger jet in this category in decades on July 15. Belittled by Airbus salesman John Leahy only this week as “that cute little aircraft”, Bombardier called this special flight rightly “the most important take-off in the history of the CSeries.” Even after the recent mega-order by Delta Air Lines, Bombardier desperately needs to build trust and confidence in its product to attract more takers.”
This aircraft is somewhat unique in its own way as it comes in a 2-3 seat layout which is considered very different than its competitors. Competitors such as Embraer Aircraft offers a 2-2 and Airbus and Boeing offer a 3-3 seat layout.
In terms of the cabin width, the CSeries is at 3.28m whereas the Airbus A320 has one seat in every row which leads them to have a measurement of 3.70m
The CSeries also has a window that is 50% larger than that of the A320’s window.
Rockwell Collins, the American multinational company which provides information technology and avionics system and services, has recently announced that its Venue high-definition entertainment system as well as cabin management will be equipped on new Bombardier Global 6000 and Global 5000 aircrafts, beginning in the third quarter of 2016. This announcement was made at the 2016 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE). Rockwell Collins’s Venue system will also be offered as a retrofit solution through Bombardier Service Centers for in-service Global aircraft models.
Venue has already been installed in more than 850 corporate aircraft cabins as well as private aircraft cabins around the globe. Each system is custom made with the most advanced cabin technologies in order to recreate and mirror the latest advancements in boardroom technology and home entertainment. The open architecture design offered by Venue allows for a platform that can be easily implemented in future cabin technologies.
“Venue offers the proven reliability and the flexibility to allow passengers to work and play without compromise”
said the vice president of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Support of Commercial Systems for Rockwell Collins, Scott Gunnufson.
“At the same time, Global aircraft operators can have peace of mind knowing that their cabin management system will accommodate new technologies as they become available.”
“Our long-range Global business jets routinely fly the world’s most discerning travelers to remote destinations in the ultimate luxury and comfort. These customers are seeking the same cutting-edge technology in the air as they use in their offices or living rooms. This new cabin management system seamlessly blends ease of use and advanced functionality to deliver the best in business productivity, and entertainment at 51,000 feet”
said the vice president of Strategy, Marketing, and Innovation for Bombardier Business Aircraft, Jean-Christophe Gallagher.
“The features, technology and reliability of the Venue system are a perfect fit with our high-performing Global aircraft family.”
“This announcement continues the long-term relationship of Rockwell Collins as the cabin management system supplier for Bombardier on the Global XRS, Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft,”
said Terry Spruce from Corporate Jet Investor.
Embraer has just unveiled their new design for a revolutionary interior that is a massive upgrade from the cabins reminiscent of a pressurized metal tube and small port holes. Commercial and business jets with eight-figure price tags still offer very little in terms of allowing natural sunlight into the cabin and for most people the idea of flying is scary enough without your aircraft resembling a metal tomb or coffin. Embraer has heed the cries of its customers and has proposed a new interior design concept christened the Kyoto Airship. Embraer has proposed to outfit their new Lineage 1000 business jets with state of the art skylights and huge vertical windows to allow customers a view that is indeed fit for the gods. The Kyoto Airship interior is available for any customer interested in ordering the Lineage 1000 valued at $55 million dollars by Embraer.
There are 30 year old aircrafts currently flying around with skylights such as the Cessna but skylights aren’t exactly a novel idea. This is however the first time ever that skylights have been offered on a jet this large and with a pressurized cabin that cruises at an average of 10,000 meters.
The Embraer executive jet team referenced an ERJ145 regional jet and drew inspiration from the technical aspect to come up with this new concept. According to Vice President of Interior Design, Jay Beever, the Embraer design team imagined a “hypothetical Japanese customer who may want to sit on the floor of the aircraft instead of a traditional seat” and dropped the window sills so that the customer can have a lower center of gravity. The large vertical windows will allow you to be bathed in sunlight and will illuminate your entire cabin however the Embraer design team is very cognizant of the fact that with all the sunlight coming in the cabin could become extremely hot.
For now it is still in the concept phase and being experimented with but Embraer is anxiously awaiting for the brave soul that is willing to buck the trend and become a trendsetter in terms of setting the new standard for a business jet.

Raytheon has confirmed the sale of 254 missiles worth over $260 million to Qatar’s Armed Forces. It is said by many that Raytheon will be receiving $34.3 million in profit in this sale. This was confirmed by the United States Defense Security Cooperation Agency.
Raytheon is a major American defense contractor that was founded in 1922, and headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts. They are the world’s largest producer of guided missiles, and are the fourth largest defense contractor in the United States.
In an April 22, 2016 press release, by the United States Defense Security Cooperation Agency stated a possible Foreign Military Sale to Qatar for RIM 11C and RIM-16C-2 Rolling Airframe Missiles. The order consisted of 252 RIM-116C Rolling Airframe Tactical Missiles, and 2 RIM 166C-2 Rolling Airframe Telemetry missiles. This deal also includes support equipment, manuals, publications, personnel training, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistical support services, live fire test event support and other related integrated elements.
The Qatar Armed Forces consists of roughly 11,800 army, navy, and air force personnel. These missiles will be used to boost Qatar’s navy and coast guard, which is equipped with about 6 dozen small coastal patrol crafts. GlobalSecurity.org lists Qatar Armed Forces as under-trained, under-staffed and under-equipped.
The U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency states that this sale will not alter the basic military balance in the region. Also, they stated that the sale will be able to help aid Qatar’s military to protect its naval forces by nearby oil and gas infrastructures.
On April 05, 2016 at the annual Sun’n’Fun airshow in Lakeland, FL, Boeing announced the sale of 112 training aircrafts to the University of North Dakota Aerospace Foundation. UND Aerospace Foundation develops and provides aircraft training services to the UND John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences. Piper Aircraft will deliver 112 single-engine Archer TXs and multi-engine Seminoles beginning Q4 of 2016, with a deal estimating at over $40 million.
UND John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences provides aerospace learning and aviation education, atmospheric research, space studies, and computer science applications. The program was developed in 1968 with 2 donated planes and 12 students who had a fascination with aviation. The Aerospace Science program is the second largest of UND’s degree-granting colleges, and has the largest fleet of civilian flight training.
Piper Aircraft, located in Vero Beach, FL was at one time considered one of the “Big Three” in the field of general aviation manufacturing. The company has produced over 144,000 aircrafts in 160 different models, with over 90,000 still flying.
The Piper Archer TX produces over 180 HP and can reach up to 128 knots. The Piper Seminoles produces over 180 HP and can reach a cruise speed of 155 knots. Students will be using both planes to reach their required 125,000 hours each year.It is said by Amy Laboda of AINonline
