El Gobierno español estudia colocar más de 1.200 millones de AENA en bolsa

El Gobierno español estudia colocar más de 1.200 millones de AENA en bolsa
http://feedly.com/k/1dz1pUt

El Gobierno sacará a Bolsa hasta un 30 por ciento de AENA (Aeropuertos Españoles y Navgeación Aérea), para ingresar alrededor de 1.200 millones de euros y asegurarse el éxito en la privatización de ese ente, proyecto en el que trabaja para ceder a inversores privados la mayoría de la empresa gestora de aeropuertos. Según el esquema propuesto por la propia empresa, en su nuevo accionariado quedaría el Estado como accionista principal, con una participación inferior al 51 por ciento. Su posición sería acompañada por un núcleo estable de entre tres y cinco grandes socios, que controlarían un 30 por ciento, mientras que el capital restante se diluiría entre inversores institucionales, como fondos de inversión y minoristas.

FAA verifies Citation X speed

WICHITA, Kan., Oct 31, 2013 – Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, recently concluded all high-speed certification flights with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the new Citation X. This marks the completion of all testing requirements needed to validate the aircraft's unmatched maximum operating speed of Mach 0.935 (617 mph, 536 ktas), solidifying the Citation X's position as the fastest civilian aircraft in the world.

Michael Thacker, Cessna senior vice president of Engineering, said: "The high-speed testing of the new Citation X was a success. All responses from the high-speed certification testing were well within the expected performance envelope. While these are the results our engineers fully anticipated, this final round of testing went so smoothly the conditions were completed in fewer flights and hours than planned."

The high-speed testing regimen includes handling qualities, stability and control in addition to maneuverability conditions at high speeds. The Citation X high-speed validation was accomplished as a result of collaboration with FAA pilots and Cessna's Engineering Flight Test Team during the past weeks. Over 1,300 hours have been flown in the Citation X test program in preparation for certification, expected in the early part of 2014.

Brad Thress, Cessna senior vice president of Business Jets, said: "Our Citation X customers will be glad to know they will own the fastest civilian aircraft in the world. There is no quicker way to get from point A to point B than inside a Citation X."

The Citation X has a range of 3,242 nm, a seating capacity for 9 people, and the cutting edge Garmin G5000 avionics package. Four intuitive, full-color touch-screen LCD control panels and three 14-inch high-resolution displays face the pilots upon entering the updated, ergonomic cockpit. Maximum altitude is 51,000 feet, giving the new Citation X the ability to fly above weather patterns and commercial traffic. Two FADEC-controlled Rolls-Royce AE3007C2 turbo fan engines provide passengers with the fastest way to travel non-stop from New York to London, Dubai to Singapore, or Panama City to Sao Paulo.
