  • ANALYSIS: Bumps on Dema's path to tier one status

    News | 11 Nov 2014 14:05 | Murdo Morrison

    ​Becoming a tier one in the aerospace supply chain is a tough business, and the 21-year rise of Dema from $2 million-turnover boutique design house to one of Italy’s foremost aerostructures players has not been without growing pains. Alongside a succession of acquisitions and investment in facilities and equipment have been financial wobbles, as delays to two key programmes – the Boeing 787 and Bombardier CSeries – forced a restructuring and put the brakes on bullish revenue projections.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Bumps-on-Demas-path-to-tier-one-status-405545/

  • World Airliner Directory: Airbus v Boeing is a war on two fronts

    News | 21 Oct 2014 13:12 | Günter Endres

    The campaign for market share between Airbus and Boeing is being fought on two fronts. In single-aisles, both airframers have adopted similar gameplans by re-engining existing models and – with bulging backlogs and plans to ramp up monthly production between now and the end of the decade – are in a head-to-head battle for market share. It is a race that Airbus is winning, both in terms of orders and being first to market. Its A320neo flew in September. By then, Airbus had logged 3,257 firm ¬orders, compared to 2,219 for the 737 Max. In widebodies the situation is different, with Toulouse and Seattle adopting very different product strategies: Boeing launched its 777X a year ago and is offering two variants of its revamped large twin alongside three versions of its 787 Dreamliner.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/World-Airliner-Directory-Airbus-v-Boeing-is-a-war-on-two-fronts-405009/
  • ANALYSIS: Completions companies vie for VIPs in a shrinking market

    News | 17 Oct 2014 00:00

    “You complete me,” declared Jerry Maguire to his Dorothy in the schmaltzy 1996 movie named after him. Eighteen years later, one trusts their happy relationship is still going strong – unlike that between the large US interiors houses and American aircraft buyers. The latter seem to be eschewing the notion of a soul mate for life, preferring to take a more pragmatic approach in their choice of a completions partner – that is, if the established players are to be believed.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Completions-companies-vie-for-VIPs-in-a-shrinking-market-404188/
