Tecnam is running CAAC’s certification process on Tecnam’s single engine two seat P2008JC CS/VLA and single engine four seat P2010 CS/23 fully certified by EASA. Production in China of these models will follow the validation.

Mr. Paolo Pascale, TECNAM Managing Director expresses his satisfaction: “TECNAM prides itself on the quality, reliability and affordability of its extensive range of GA aircraft. Our co-operation with LUSY will ensure our China based customers will also benefit from our very high standards of service and support. We expect to see hundreds of Tecnam aeroplanes roll off the LUSY production facility over the next few years”.

LUSY Managing Director Mr. Liu Xiaofeng says “We are honoured to be able to cooperate with TECNAM as we move forward to support the needs of China burgeoning Flight Training needs.”

Sweden and Brazil collaborating in aerospace research

Press Release

The governments of Sweden and Brazil have agreed to further strengthen their cooperation with regard to civil and military aerospace research. The collaboration, announced during the President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff's, visit to Sweden, means that Sweden's and Brazil's Defence departments and Ministries of Enterprise and Innovation will assemble a joint steering group for aerospace research.

An introductory meeting was held on Monday October 19 between government representatives from both countries to delineate the details of the partnership.

"This venture will allow us to strengthen the valuable relationship already shared between Sweden and Brazil forged by the Gripen deal," says Saab's Deputy CEO, Senior Executive Vice President, Lennart Sindahl. "In the long-term, we hope to be able to form larger projects together and bring the technology closer to the products. Together we can pool our resources and knowledge in order to attain increased global competitiveness."

Both Brazil and Sweden have been engaged in aerospace research for a long time, and complement each other well within the field of aviation. Brazilian industry delivers large civilian aircraft and has military aviation operations as well. Aside from its civilian aviation operations, Sweden is one of a small number of nations that has the capability to develop and manufacture modern fighter aircraft. Sweden's strong collaboration between academia, industry and government agencies is unique and, as a result, many countries are interested in understanding the inner workings of the Swedish aerospace industry and the research done there.

In a press release published on Monday October 19, Oscar Stenström from the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation explained:

"There is a great deal of interest in Swedish aviation solutions, for example, within design, production technology and sensor systems. This innovation partnership can lead to transfers within many other sectors and can create job opportunities in Sweden as well as Brazil."

Long standing academic exchange between the two countries

Saab already have an academic exchange project together with Swedish and Brazilian universities. The exchanges primarily take place within the Swedish-Brazilian Research and Innovation Centre (CISB), which serves as an arena for innovation, research and development.

Swedish aerospace research is coordinated by Innovair

Vinnova is an agency within the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation tasked with promoting research and innovation in order to contribute to growth in Sweden. Innovair is a group to which all the players involved in Swedish aerospace research belong and one of the 16 "Strategic Innovation Areas" (SIO) established by Vinnova. Innovair is made up of research funding agencies, universities and institutes that conduct research, and companies that participate in the research and utilise the results.

Boeing, Norwegian Finalize Order for 19 787-9 Dreamliners [feedly]



Boeing, Norwegian Finalize Order for 19 787-9 Dreamliners

http://boeing.mediaroom.com/2015-10-22-Boeing-Norwegian-Finalize-Order-for-19-787-9-Dreamliners





Largest single order for 787-9s from a European airline

OSLO, Norway, Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Norwegian have finalized an order for 19 787-9 Dreamliners valued at more than $5 billion at current list prices. The order also includes options for 10 more 787-9s, as the carrier looks to significantly grow its existing long-haul fleet into the next decade. It is the largest single order for 787-9s from a European airline.

Norwegian currently operates eight 787-8s and has previously ordered 11 787-9s through lease agreements. With today's order, the carrier, headquartered in Oslo, will expand its total 787 fleet to nearly 40 airplanes in the coming years.

"This order of 19 new Dreamliners is a major milestone and enables Norwegian to offer a wide range of new routes to consumers worldwide. The order is also essential to further strengthening the company in the global competition," said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian's CEO. "After two years of operating low-cost long-haul flights, our load factors have averaged in the nineties, which proves the demand for affordable flights between Europe and the US and Europe and Asia. Future growth and competiveness in the long-haul market depends on the fuel-efficient, state-of-the art 787 Dreamliner. Not least, the Dreamliner offers the best passenger experience."

The 787-9 complements and extends the 787 family. With the fuselage stretched by 6 meters (20 feet) over the 787-8, the 787-9 can fly up to 20 percent more passengers and 23 percent more cargo farther yet with the same exceptional environmental performance – 20 percent less fuel use and 20 percent fewer emissions than the airplanes they replace.

"Norwegian has led the way in utilizing the exceptional performance of the 787 to develop a successful low-cost long-haul operation," said Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The addition of 787-9s to the Norwegian fleet will enable it to grow its route structure, while providing more range and capacity with outstanding passenger comfort."

The 787-9 leverages the visionary design of the 787-8, offering passenger-pleasing features such as the industry's largest windows, large overhead bins with room for everyone's bag, modern LED lighting, air that is cleaner, more humid and at a higher pressure for greater comfort and technology that senses and counters turbulence for a smoother ride.

Norwegian serves more than 130 destinations across Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, the USA and Southeast Asia, with a fleet that includes 90 Next-Generation 737-800s and eight 787-8s.

In 2014 the airline carried nearly 24 million passengers and has won numerous awards for its onboard service, including a SkyTrax award for 'Best low-cost long-haul airline.' With today's order for 19 787-9s, Norwegian has more than 150 unfilled orders from Boeing, including 100 737 MAXs.

Canadian F-35 exit could signal wider air force review
https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/canadian-f-35-exit-could-signal-wider-air-force-revi-418043/

Canada’s change of government this week, after a decade of conservative rule, could see Ottawa swiftly exit the multinational F-35 programme and instead pursue a fighter competition, which defence analysts suggest could favour the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet or F-15SE, or Dassault's Rafale.

The incoming Liberal Party has pledged to ditch Lockheed Martin’s F-35 and “immediately” launch a competition to replace the Royal Canadian Air Force’s 77 active Boeing CF-18s, following years of indecision. The new government is also withdrawing the service’s six fighters, one tanker and two surveillance aircraft from the US-led air campaign in Iraq, and is de-emphasising the service’s expeditionary combat role in preference of homeland defence and air patrol.

F-16V Takes Flight

FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 21, 2015 – Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) successfully completed the maiden flight of the F-16V, the latest and most advanced F-16 on the market today. The October 16 flight marks the first time an F-16 has flown with Northrop Grumman's advanced APG-83 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR), which will deliver a quantum leap in capability for the venerable F-16.

The F-16V "Viper" advanced avionics configuration also includes a new cockpit Center Pedestal Display, a modernized mission computer, a high-capacity Ethernet data bus, and several other missions systems enhancements that collectively add significant combat capabilities to address the dynamic threat environments emerging in the coming decades.

"This flight marks a historic milestone in the evolution of the F-16," said Rod McLean, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin's F-16/F-22 Integrated Fighter Group. "The new F-16V configuration includes numerous enhancements designed to keep the F-16 at the forefront of international security, strengthening its position as the world's foremost combat-proven 4th Generation fighter aircraft."

The F-16V, an option for both new production F-16s and F-16 upgrades, is the next generation configuration that leverages a common worldwide sustainment infrastructure and provides significant capability improvements to the world's most affordable, combat-proven multi-role fighter.

Northrop Grumman's APG-83 SABR AESA fire control radar provides 5th Generation air-to-air and air-to-ground radar capability. Northrop Grumman also provides AESA radars for the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II.

With more than 4,550 F-16s delivered to date, the F-16V is a natural step in the evolution of the world's most successful 4th Generation fighter.

Home made ultra light jet: First Customer-Built SubSonex Flies! [feedly]


First Customer-Built SubSonex Personal Jet Flies!
Second Factory Prototype Also Achieves First Flight;
SubSonex Books More Airshows
October 16, 2015, Oshkosh, WI
Sonex Aircraft extends its congratulations to Redge Greenberg of Durango, Colorado, who made the first flight of SubSonex serial number JSX0003 yesterday, October 15th: the first customer-built SubSonex Personal Jet to fly! "I flew the SubSonex this morning, for about 35 minutes… all went well," writes Redge. "My regards to Dwight Tolfer who was a big help for me during the construction project that was done almost entirely in my garage."

Redge received the first SubSonex kit delivery in February, 2015, an Ultra-Quick-Build kit with optional Triton Trailer (see our February 16th Press Release). The SubSonex is sold as a Quick Build Kit only, leaving very little work for the customer, and providing almost everything needed to fly with the exception of avionics and paint! Two Quick Build Kit versions are offered: an EAB-compliant kit for the traditional builder including pre-built wings, fuselage and canopy; and an Experimental Exhibition category Ultra- Quick Build Kit with no “51 percent rule” restrictions. The Ultra-Quick Build customer will install the easily-removable outboard wing panels, engine and fuel system, bolt-in the retractable landing gear, install avionics, electrical systems and controls, install the supplied BRS, fiberglass components and upholstery, and add paint.

"I hold commercial glider, helicopter & single engine land licenses, accumulating 4500+ hours in numerous aircraft," wrote Greenberg for our February press release, "but I never got the chance to fly a jet. I first saw the prototype of the SubSonex at Oshkosh, and followed the development for over a year. When Sonex offered the jet as a kit, I was first in line. Like my RV8, the SubSonex is aerobatic, but the Sonex company also included a ballistic parachute for extra safety."
With two SubSonex JSX-2 factory prototype aircraft now flying, Redge's SubSonex makes number 3 in the worldwide fleet, with 6 more customer kits currently under construction.


2nd Factory Prototype SubSonex JSX-2 Achieves First Flight on October 7th
The skies over Oshkosh were once again filled with tiny jet noise on the afternoon of October 7th as the JSX-2 worldwide fleet doubled with first flight of SubSonex N241SJ! John Monnett took the sister ship of #1 JSX-2 prototype N141SJ for a short flight, which was uneventful and successful. #2 JSX-2 N241SJ was constructed at the same time as N141SJ, but flying the aircraft took a back seat to flying and refining it's "Sonex yellow" sibling, leading to it's use advertising the design as the airshow bird of Bob Carlton's Vertigo Airshows. The gray, shark-mouthed JSX-2 #2 will serve as Sonex's Oshkosh-based SubSonex factory demonstrator, and incorporates all the latest refinements to the SubSonex design.


Two More Shows Added to SubSonex Airshow Schedule
Bob Carlton recently added the 8th and 9th events to the SubSonex 2015 performance schedule, capping-off a hugely successful year for the inaugural show season in the new jet. We are particularly excited to announce that the SubSonex will be performing at the annual Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show! The SubSonex offers a unique experience in jet shows, combining jet speed with small aircraft maneuverability and close-in aerobatics. See the full show schedule on the Sonex Events Page.
  • Boshears Skyfest: October 17-18th, Augusta, GA
    This air show and fly-in will be celebrating it's 22nd annual event in 2015. The show is dedicated to inspire others to fly, especially youth in the Central Savannah River Area.
     
  • NAS Pensacola Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show: November 6-7th, Pensacola, FL
    The Blue Angel Homecoming Air Show is an annual tradition at NAS Pensacola, wrapping-up the season with a special show to thank residents of the Blue Angels' home base community. Attractions include the Naval Aviation Museum, and the opportunity to get a unique look at the operations of the Blue's home field. After Aero-News.net suggested the SubSonex as replacement aircraft for the USAF Thunderbirds, Sonex Aircraft is hopeful that Navy admirals will take interest in the SubSonex during the Pensacola show.

LAS EXPORTACIONES AERONÁUTICAS ANDALUZAS CRECEN UN 18,6% EN LOS PRIMEROS SIETE MESES DE 2015 HASTA LOS 822 MILLONES DE EUROS



La Consejería de Economía y Conocimiento organiza la tercera edición de Aerospace & Defense Meetings-ADM Sevilla 2016 que ya ha abierto su periodo de inscripción

            Las exportaciones andaluzas del sector aeronáutico alcanzaron los 822 millones de euros en los primeros siete meses de 2015, lo que supone un incremento del 18,6% respecto al mismo periodo del año anterior. Con estos datos, Andalucía es segunda comunidad exportadora, con el 30% del total, y siendo Sevilla y Cádiz las provincias líderes en ventas en el exterior, con un crecimiento del 21,7% y 14,2% respectivamente.

            La Consejería de Economía y Conocimiento, a través de Extenda-Agencia Andaluza de Promoción Exterior, organiza la tercera edición de Aerospace & Defense Meetings-ADM Sevilla 2016 que ya ha abierto su periodo de inscripción para las empresas andaluzas que quieran participar en la página web del certamen que se encuentra accesible en http://www.bciaerospace.com/sevilla/es/registrese.html.

            Extenda realiza, junto a Abe-BCI, el mayor evento del sector de España, que tendrá lugar entre el 11 y el 13 de mayo, con el objetivo de consolidar a Andalucía como capital del negocio aeroespacial en nuestro país y punto de referencia del circuito mundial del sector.

            Por otra parte, el crecimiento del 18,6% de las ventas aeronáuticas andaluzas es mayor que el experimentado por España en el mismo período (14,5%), cifras que aportan a la balanza comercial andaluza un saldo positivo de 285,2 millones, con una tasa de cobertura del 153%. En cuanto a los provincias exportadoras, Sevilla realizó ventas por valor 538,2 millones (65,5% del total), mientras que las exportaciones de Cádiz alcanzaron los 281 millones (34,2% del total), en segunda posición.

            Diversificación de mercados
            En cuanto a los mercados, Extenda ha detectado que el nivel de diversificación de destinos sigue presente en este período, ya que 16 de los 20 primeros países fueron no comunitarios. Asimismo, Francia continúa en primer lugar con 223 millones de euros (27% del total) y un crecimiento del 26,2% con respecto a los primeros siete meses de 2014; seguido de México, con 128,4 millones (15,6% del total) que multiplica por 492 las ventas.

            En tercer lugar está Malasia, con 127,4 millones (15,5% del total), que multiplica sus cifras por 396; en cuarta posición se encuentra Egipto, con 94,2 millones y casi el cuádruple que en los mismos meses de 2014; seguida de Alemania, con 86,2 millones. Destacan también los crecimientos en exportaciones a otros países como Vietnam (54,6 millones), sexto mercado, al que no se registraron ventas en los siete primeros meses de 2014.

Los datos de las empresas exportadoras andaluzas indican que el sector goza de un alto nivel de internacionalización, con el significativo crecimiento del 11% en el número de empresas exportadoras registrado en 2014, hasta alcanzar las 59, y alza del 21% en las exportadoras regulares, que se sitúan ya en 23. Estos números indican que más de la mitad de las empresas del sector (114) son exportadoras y el 20% exportadoras regulares, acaparando estas 23, el 80% de las ventas al exterior.

            ADM Casablanca 2015

            Dentro de las acciones que realiza Extenda para promocionar el sector aeronáutico andaluz en el mundo, ha organizado la participación de las empresas sevillanas Maquinser, Fundación Hélice y Simetrycal en la Aerospace & Defense Meetings Casablanca 2015, que tendrá lugar del 6 al 7 de octubre de 2015 en Marruecos.

            La industria aeronáutica marroquí cuenta con 106 empresas, que facturan más de 100 millones de euros al año, y emplea a más de 11.000 personas. La gran mayoría de las empresas del sector están ubicadas en Casablanca y región adyacente donde se han instalado algunas filiales de líderes internacionales como Safran, EADS, Boing, Bombardier o Thales.

ADM Sevilla 2016

Los objetivos de ADM Sevilla 2016 son superar los datos cuantitativos de la segunda edición e incrementar los cualitativos, en cuanto a la entidad de los contratistas internacionales que participarán en esta cita, lo que permitirá a las empresas andaluzas establecer contactos de máximo nivel con los principales actores mundiales del sector, y también en cuanto al programa de conferencias expertas organizadas. De esta forma, se consolida su carácter comercial y de conocimiento, así como su ubicación dentro del circuito mundial de negocios del sector. 

La segunda edición supuso la consolidación del carácter bienal del evento, destacando sus participantes una importante mejora sobre la primera edición en cuanto a la calidad de los encuentros de negocio organizados y a los principales aspectos de la organización, calificados en más de un 90% de los casos como “bueno” o “excelente”.  ADM 2016 podrá ser cofinanciada con fondos procedentes de la Unión Europea.

Convocatorias abiertas de internacionalización 2015

Extenda apoya al cluster aeroespacial andaluz con una intensa programación enfocada a participar en las principales ferias internacionales, el desarrollo de misiones comerciales a los principales mercados y otro tipo de acciones de internacionalización, en la que en 2014 participaron hasta 160 empresas.

Este año 2015 ya se ha apoyado la presencia andaluza en la `International Paris Air Show Le Bourget´ en París, y está abierta la convocatoria para el certamen `Farnborough International Airshow 2016´ en Reino Unido, Además, próximamente estará disponible la inscripción para las empresas de la comunidad en la muestra `ILA Berlin Air Show´que celebrará el próximo junio de 2016 en Berlín.

Asimismo, junto a todas estas acciones, ADM Sevilla supone la consolidación de una estrategia de internacionalización del cluster aeroespacial de Andalucía desarrollada por la Consejería de Economía y Conocimiento, a través de Extenda, y en coordinación con Hélice. En este caso, para identificar a Andalucía y a sus empresas como la capital del negocio aeroespacial de España y tercer polo aeronáutico de Europa, tras Toulouse y Hamburgo.

Representantes de FIDAE e IDS ultiman en Chile la tercera edición de UNVEX América - NOTA DE PRENSA -

Han mantenido reuniones con representantes civiles y militares nacionales para definir los aspectos más importantes de la Conferencia de Sistemas Remotamente Tripulados que se celebrará el próximo año en el marco de FIDAE


Octubre de 2015

Representantes de FIDAE  y de IDS  se han reunido en Chile con diversos miembros de entidades civiles y militares nacionales con el objetivo de definir los aspectos más importantes que se expondrán durante la 3ra edición de la Conferencia Latinoamericana de Sistemas Remotamente Tripulados, UNVEX'16 que se celebrará los días 31 de marzo al 1 de abril del próximo año en el seno de una de las Ferias más importantes del continente en materia de defensa, seguridad y aeroespacial.


En el marco de dichas reuniones se han tratado temas concretos como la experiencia y proyección en el uso de UAS/RPAS (drones) en las Fuerzas Armadas,  cuerpos de seguridad y usos civiles, además de la legislación, certificación, formación de operadores, junto a proyectos de universidades y centros de I+D.


"El mercado de los UAV está creciendo exponencialmente, se duplica cada año y podríamos hablar que es equivalente a la telefonía móvil, ya que la tecnología va a una velocidad muy grande y la demanda del mercado es cada vez mayor", destacó Ángel Macho, Consejero Delegado de IDS, que viajó a Chile con la finalidad de recopilar mayor información e inquietudes de especialistas.


El representante de IDS añadió que "para nosotros es un honor y una satisfacción realizar la nueva edición de UNVEX'16 en FIDAE, ya que es la mayor feria aeronáutica del continente. Los UAS/RPAS se han convertido en este momento en los sistemas aéreos de mayor crecimiento y, creo que con la conferencia UNVEX'16 dentro de su programa de conferencias, vamos a conseguir estar a la vanguardia, con una audiencia perfectamente preparada que aprovechará al máximo el desarrollo de ésta tecnología".

UNVEX AMERICA es un encuentro profesional, orientado al mercado, con el objetivo de impulsar el conocimiento y la aplicación de los sistemas remotamente tripulados.  Su programa incluye los aspectos que más preocupan  al sector como la legislación, normativa, operación, formación de operadores y, por supuesto, la tecnología. Se espera la participación de ponentes de varios países de la región, así como de expertos de los países más desarrollados en este mercado, como Estados Unidos e Israel.


La organizadora del evento, IDS, es una empresa española integrada por profesionales de la comunicación especializados en Defensa y Seguridad que oferta servicios integrales de comunicación a empresas y organismos públicos y privados. Cuenta con un equipo de profesionales cualificados en la materia. Como empresa editorial destacan sus portales www.infodefensa.com , líder en España y América Latina, y www.infoespacial.com.
