  • OPINION: Where next for Rolls-Royce?

    News | 08 Dec 2014 00:00

    ​London investment bank Investec has called for a thorough strategy review at Rolls-Royce. The company’s directors may not take up the suggestion but, if they do, they may well conclude that their strategy is just fine as it is. But to propose other options is to raise serious questions for R-R and the aerospace industry.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OPINION-Where-next-for-Rolls-Royce-406871/
  • ANALYSIS: The impact of DC-10 and MD-11 on aviation

    News | 05 Dec 2014 10:57 | James Mellon

    ​All journeys on a passenger jet these days will be on a type that has two, or occasionally four, engines. This year marked the end of the era of the three-engine airliner and, with it, the presence in the flight schedules of a once powerful manufacturer. In a remarkable coincidence, the final scheduled passenger services of both the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and its successor, the MD-11, took place in 2014, with Biman Bangladesh and KLM, respectively, retiring their last examples.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-The-impact-of-DC-10-and-MD-11-on-aviation-406735/

  • 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/
