  • Rotor club: Our top 10 most influential helicopters

    News | 21 Nov 2014 12:02 | Dominic Perry

    With the Bell Helicopter 505 Jet Ranger X making its maiden flight recently – and with the technologically advanced 525 Relentless waiting in the wings – we run down a (entirely subjective) list of the most influential helicopters of all time.

  • ANALYSIS: Ukraine's and Russia's aerospace industries will be hit hard by deteriorating relations

    News | 23 Sep 2014 09:16

Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, the two countries' industries had enjoyed an at-times contentious but largely productive collaborative relationship. The most recent round of embargoes placed on Russia by Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, however, will cut the links and cause collateral damage on both sides.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Ukraines-and-Russias-aerospace-industries-will-be-hit-hard-by-deteriorating-relations-403480/
