Aviation hotspot - the rise of aerospace manufacturing in the Gulf

The Gulf States have become an aviation hotspot. Home to several world class airlines and some of the world’s busiest international airports, local governments have made the best possible use of a golden combination: oil and gas generated sovereign wealth and a geographic position ideally placed between Europe and the Far East. These advantages are now being used as the basis for aerospace manufacturing ambitions: as Khalifa Al Daboos, managing director of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise put it last year, the regions’ “airports are leveraging their strategic geographic location to become global supply chain hubs for emerging markets.” - See more at: http://aerosociety.com/News/Insight-Blog/3772/Aviation-hotspot-the-rise-of-aerospace-manufacturing-in-the-Gulf#sthash.sX5AN9i6.dpuf

Rutan’s new amphibious SkiGull tests the water





After two years evolving and building his 47th unique aircraft, SkiGull, Burt Rutan towed it to Bob Williams’ beach next to Honeysuckle on Hayden Lake Sunday for a series of water taxi tests that were conducted Sunday evening and Monday.

The SkiGull design is different than other seaplanes, in that most of the water takeoff run is done with the aircraft supported above the water on flexible water skis. The flexible skis are intended to provide shock absorption to allow it to operate on rougher water than conventional seaplanes. Before the skis can be extended, the long hull and low speed prevents pitch angle changes. The planned modifications are now aimed at forcing the nose higher for low speed taxi.
