  • Jet impact

    News | 01 May 2001 00:00

    <p>Gunter Endres LONDON The steep rise in demand for regional jets is confronting manufacturers with new challenges.</p> <p>The regional jet revolution continued apace last year, with the new breed of RJs chalking up their highest order tally to date. Yet the first great wave of RJ orders may be about to subside, at least in the USA. As it does, the focus switches to how manufacturers will now deliver on the massive order backlog and to where the revolution goes from here, both in terms of aircraft seating size and new geographical markets. </p> <p>There is no denying that 2000 was another spectacular year for the RJ, with new orders signed for 778 aircraft. That marked a new sales record (up from 529 in 1999) taking the combined world RJ backlog close to 1,300 aircraft. It also confirmed the victory of jets over turboprops. While the RJ boomed, turboprop orders were down to 79 aircraft, the lowest point for nearly 30 years, and their backlog now makes up under 10%of the regional ai
  • Raytheon 1900D fire threat revealed

    News | 17 Jul 1996 00:00

    <p>THE THREAT OF cockpit fires has prompted the US Federal Aviation Administration to order US regional airlines to disarm windscreen anti-icing systems on their Raytheon Aircraft 1900D turboprops, pending development of a solution. </p> <p>Operators of the 19-passenger aircraft have now been prohibited from flying into known icing conditions. Affected are 239 1900Ds operated by commuter carriers. </p> <p>The airworthiness directive issued on 10 July follows two 1900D incidents in which short circuits around the cockpit windscreen produced arcing and higher-than-normal heat which led to smoke and minor fires in the cockpit. In both cases, the aircraft were landed safely and there were no injuries. </p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
