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


    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.

  • ANALYSIS: Why Snecma is confident Silvercrest can win further applications

    News | 13 Oct 2014 10:30 | Murdo Morrison

    ​Snecma started powering up for its first foray into business aviation just as the sector itself was about to power down. Seven years on from the beginning of the test campaign on the Silvercrest core engine demonstrator in December 2007, the French propulsion specialist is convinced it made the right strategic move in launching full development of the 9,500-1,200lb-thrust (42.25-5.33kN) programme three years later without a confirmed customer.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Why-Snecma-is-confident-Silvercrest-can-win-further-applications-404463/

  • ANALYSIS: Rolls-Royce makes progress with Trent 7000

    News | 02 Oct 2014 09:45 | Murdo Morrison

    Although understandably coy before Airbus’s Farnborough announcement that it was launching the A330neo, Rolls-Royce was by July quite far along the path of finalising the design for the Trent 7000, the 72,000lb (320kN) thrust engine that will exclusively power the re-engined widebody. Airbus already has a more than 50% share of engines on in-service A330s, with its original Trent 700.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Rolls-Royce-makes-progress-with-Trent-7000-404039/
