  • ANALYSIS: What is the future for 3D printing in aerospace?

    News | 30 May 2014 11:07 | Stephen Trimble

    Making parts for a jet engine using a 3D printer is – despite what you may hear –– not cheap. The powder used by the printer to build up the part – layer by microscopic layer – is expensive. The 3D printer itself is a machine with a seven-figure price tag. And the part still requires costly finishing work after it emerges from the additive manufacturing process.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-What-is-the-future-for-3D-printing-in-aerospace-399666/

  • EBACE: Beechcraft 350ER King Air is a multi-mission masterpiece

    News | 15 May 2014 11:10 | Mike Gerzanics

    The Beechcraft King Air was introduced in 1964, and has proved to be one of the world’s most popular turboprop twins. While the folks in Wichita have been steadily working away, delivering more than 7,000 King Airs of ­various flavours since then, the corporate backdrop has been anything but stable. Multiple ownership changes and a bankruptcy filing during the course of the King Air’s production life have played out, with Beechcraft recently becoming part of Textron Aviation (TA). A visit to TA’s website reveals a new corporate tagline, “Gaining Altitude. Together.” The “together” is the combination of Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker under a single corporate umbrella. Clyde Cessna and Walter Beech had last worked together in 1927 at Travel Air Manufacturing Company. Separately both left to found their own aircraft companies, and after 87 years apart these two storied marques are back together.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/EBACE-Beechcraft-350ER-King-Air-is-a-multi-mission-masterpiece-398552/
