  • Airline Safety Review - Fatal accidents

    News | 22 Jul 1998 12:10

    <p>See article "Double Standards"</p> <p>Accident data come from Flight International's own research and from Airclaims' World Airline Accident Summary (WAAS)*, a quarterly updated analytical record of accidents and incidents worldwide since 1945. The WAAS, a UK Civil Aviation Authority publication, benefits from Airclaims' exclusive information exchange with the CIS Interstate Aviation Committee Commission for Flight Safety. The WAAS now lists accidents by operator and location, as well as by type of occurrence and aircraft type. </p> <p>Airline accident and incident information supplied by the Aviation Department of Lloyds of London, the international insurance market, is also gratefully acknowledged.</p> <p>Although details of non-fatal incidents are not made officially available by the authorities in many countries, Flight International continues to list as many of these incidents as possible, in the interests of maximising the availability of relevant information.

  • Ageing aircraft

    <p>Supersonic </p> <p>Aerospatiale/BAe (BAC) Concorde </p> <p>Thirteen of the 14 Concordes delivered to British Airways and Air France between 1975 and 1980 remain in service. Twenty Concordes were built, including two prototypes, two pre-production aircraft and two production aircraft which were not delivered. One of the seven Concordes delivered to Air France has been permanently withdrawn, while another has until recently been in long-term storage at Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport, but is being re-activated to cover for aircraft undergoing maintenance. All seven Concordes delivered to BA remain in service. BA achieves a considerably higher utilisation from its Concorde fleet than does Air France and, as a consequence, has the fleet-leading aircraft. </p> <p>The original design life for the Concorde was set at 24,000 cycles, although the actual figure was never proved, as fatigue testing was suspended in the early 1980s with around 20,000 simulated cycles logged.

  • Ageing-airliner census

    News | 04 Oct 1995 00:00

    <p>Compiled by Martin Fendt/Jennifer Pite/LONDON </p> <p>THIS SURVEY SHOWS THAT there has been a growth in the number of aging jet-powered aircraft in service (aged 15 years or older), from 5,204 in 1994 to 5,671 in 1995 - an increase of 467. The figures for turboprops are 2,509 and 2,063, respectively, indicating a decrease of 446 units. The net growth (turboprops and jets) for 1995 is 21 aircraft compared to 1994. Although the figures quoted include all aircraft in service, some may have been parked temporarily. </p> <p>In the last nine months, according to data supplied by aviation consultancy and aviation-information supplier Airclaims, up to 400 jet airliners have been either retired or parked. Of these, at least 61% (245 aircraft) are either Stage 1 or Stage 2 noise-compliant, while only 39% (158 aircraft) meet Stage 3 requirements. By far the largest number of withdrawals for any particular type is the Boeing 727. This year there have been 100 examples removed from active dutyhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Ageing-airliner-census-24005/
