Some readers noted this week noted that coverage on this blog has been heavily weighted toward Boeing and they'd be right. This was the topic that brought this blog to life nearly three years ago and I am an US journalist with a responsibility for the Boeing beat for Flightglobal, so that should explain the weight in coverage on this page - along with the fact that two major Boeing development programs began flight test in just the last 60 days.
When I first transitioned to Flightglobal in November 2007, I sought to greatly expand the breadth of aerospace industry coverage while maintaining an identical level of depth like that of this blog's 787 coverage. That goal, while admittedly ambitious, was completely unrealistic as I do occasionally need sleep, and with the notable exception of The Woracle, cannot see all.
That being said, there is still a lot going on out there that this blog can't catch on a daily basis, though I will continue to strive to bring you content that you just won't see anywhere else. I'm not one to shy away from constructive criticism and I am always hoping to continually improve this blog with the help of your input. So, what would you like to see more/less of?
Please don't confuse this message for anything that could be construed as a conclusion to my detailed coverage of Boeing and its development programs. Those stories have yet to even be told and will continue to unfold over the years to come.
I know darn well that one person is not able to cover everything, but there are lots of topics out there I'm curious about.
In an effort to expand, I want to ask for your help as A LOT of you have an up-close view of the goings on around the world. What are you seeing out there? How's G650 & G250 flight test going? What about A350 design? Bombardier CRJ1000 flight test and CSeries and M170 design progress? A380 production stabilizing? What's the latest on the Comac C919 and ARJ21? What's up with the RB285 engine? MRJ? Sukhoi Superjet? New programs from Cessna and Hawker Beechcraft? Does the E-195X have a future?
There are lots of ways to find me
