  • ANALYSIS: Bombardier's woes eased as CSeries production takes shape

    News | 18 Mar 2015 10:46 | Murdo Morrison

    ​A visit to Bombardier’s newly-expanded Mirabel complex, just north of Montreal, does not give the impression of a company in crisis, although the past few months have seen a succession of grim news stories about Canada’s biggest manufacturer. Even local taxi drivers fret about the company’s problems and the effect major job losses would have on the economy in greater Montreal, long the country’s aerospace hub.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Bombardiers-woes-eased-as-CSeries-production-takes-shape-410133/

  • GE Aviation reveals new hybrid composites in GE9X

    News | 13 Mar 2015 20:21 | Stephen Trimble

    ​Carbonfibre-based composite first migrated into production-rated turbofan engines 20 years ago out of necessity. The sheer size of the GE90-94B made it impossible to design hub-mounted dove tails to be large and strong enough to contain a solid metal fan blade. GE had already experimented with carbonfibre blades on a cancelled open rotor engine programme, so that became the material of choice for all GE fan blades going forward.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/GE-Aviation-reveals-new-hybrid-composites-in-GE9X-410161/
