    Since its founding less than 18 months ago, Textron Aviation has been quite busy. First, there was the critical task of blending two historically competitive organisations – Cessna and Beechcraft – into a unitary corporate system. Cessna also needed to concentrate on completing certification programmes of several upgraded and new aircraft in its Citation jet family.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Textron-Aviation-turns-integration-focus-to-piston-powered-aircraft-414335/

  • ANALYSIS: Has the light sport aircraft market lived up to expectations?

    News | 02 Apr 2015 13:42

Both Evektor and Flight Design obtained their S-LSA certificates on the opening day of that 2005 show. Conceived by the FAA as a way to bring ultralights under FAA influence and as a reaction to the hodgepodge of European ultralight regulations (where each country has its own standards), the then-FAA administrator, Marion Blakey, expected 9,000 US-registered light-sport aircraft by 2015.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Has-the-light-sport-aircraft-market-lived-up-to-expectations-410231/
