  • OPINION: Airbus delivers great wide hope; but what next?


    ​A year ago, Airbus’s widebody strategy looked ragged at best. At one end of its offering, the A330 was a two-decade-old programme with a depleting backlog (its thirsty A340 sibling having already been killed off). At the other, the A380 was struggling to expand its appeal beyond Emirates. In the middle, Toulouse’s great hope was the A350. But while the -900 variant was selling well, the smaller -800 looked doomed.

  • OBITUARY: Jean-Paul Bechat, the industrialist who steered the Safran merger

    News | 03 Dec 2014 12:29 | Murdo Morrison

    ​The announced merger of state-controlled French engine maker Snecma and privately-owned defence electronics group Sagem 10 years ago may have been greeted by scepticism by analysts and been more about Gallic industrial machismo than smart business. After all, Safran, the seemingly unweildy conglomerate it created, made everything from photocopiers to unmanned air vehicles. The two seemed far from a natural fit.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OBITUARY-Jean-Paul-Bechat-the-industrialist-who-steered-the-Safran-merger-406666/

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

    News | 17 Oct 2014 12:18 | Murdo Morrison

    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.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Ultimate-corporate-jets-Nine-private-aircraft-that-combine-business-with-pleasure-404881/
