  • ​Ultimate corporate jets: Nine private aircraft that combine business with pleasure


    The USA’s, and the world’s, biggest business aviation convention – NBAA – starts in Orlando on 21 October. The event is all about business aircraft as tools – machines to transport money makers directly where they want to go in comfort, convenience and security, while saving them hours of time. However, there is an element of the industry that is more about indulgence and making a statement. Here we celebrate nine of the most flamboyant carriages of the clouds, some of which, sadly perhaps, never (or have not yet) got off the ground.

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

    News | 21 Oct 2014 12:12 | 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: NBAA: Cessna unveils new interior design with Latitude debut

    News | 21 Oct 2014 11:37 | Stephen Trimble

    ​Cessna enthusiastically launched what was then described the “light-midsized" Latitude programme three years ago, but was really playing catch-up. Rival Embraer had already stolen a scheduling lead in 2008 by unveiling the Legacy 500 and 450 jets. The Brazilian airframer had targeted the fat middle of the business jet market with an ambitious suite of new features, including fly-by-wire controls and a flat-floored stand-up cabin.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-NBAA-Cessna-unveils-new-interior-design-with-Latitude-debut-404738/
  • FLIGHT TEST: Citation X+ marks Cessna's bid for the high-speed crown

    News | 21 Oct 2014 08:07 | Mike Gerzanics

    When Flight International last flew the Citation X in 2002, Boeing was still wrestling with the Sonic Cruiser concept, an effort to field a nearly supersonic transport aircraft. In the intervening 12 years, much has happened. The Sonic Cruiser was shelved in favour of the successful 787.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FLIGHT-TEST-Citation-X+-marks-Cessnas-bid-for-the-high-speed-crown-404438/
