  • IN FOCUS LATAM DEFENCE FIGHTERS: South American air forces count the pennies, kick the tyres

    News | 04 Mar 2014 19:00 | Felipe Salles

    ​FIDAE is always a great opportunity to reassess the status of South American air forces’ fighter programmes. This is true especially after the surprise Brazilian government decision in December 2013 to close its decade-long F-X programme by selecting the Saab Gripen NG (now known officially as the E/F). The advanced age of the fleets and prospect of a locally manufactured fighter model potentially sets the stage for another sweeping round of fighter force upgrades all across the region.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/IN-FOCUS-LATAM-DEFENCE-FIGHTERS-South-American-air-forces-count-the-pennies-kick-the-tyres-396593/
  • ​ANALYSIS: The evolution of airliner insurance deductibles

    News | 31 Jan 2014 10:00 | Paul Hayes

    In airline all-risk hull and legal liability insurance policies, it is normal for standard “hull deductibles” to be used – if one of the aircraft insured under the policy is damaged, then the insured (the airline) will be responsible for paying the first part of the loss, the “hull deductible”. However, it is usual that, if the loss is settled as a total loss or constructive total loss, then the deductible will not apply and insurers will pay the full agreed value. Hull war policies do not have hull deductibles.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-The-evolution-of-airliner-insurance-deductibles-394729/
