Dassault’s UCAV project

Anglo-French is under speculation to continue their development on their latest project due to Europe’s current Brexit scandal. The production of the unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) is what is said to be at stake if companies do not decide to coincide.   Dassault, one of the main contributor to this project has stated to be very concerned to on the upcoming descions. 

Many companies are at a loss if the companies do not come to terms. Large companies such as Safran, Rolls Royce alongside their electronic components suppliers Thales and Leonardo. 

“France’s Dassault is partnered with UK-based BAE Systems under the future combat air system (FCAS) initiative agreed by the nations' governments in 2014 and reaffirmed in March 2016 at a summit in Amiens.” 

The relations began as a strong healthy partnership between the UK and the French when the Prime minister of the UK and the French president agreed to the second “stage” worth more over £1.54 billion ($1.87 billion US). 

With the scare of Brexit being imposed this year, the future of the production has not been as stable as before. France assures that they can and will take over the production if the UK decides to leave but may not be the right choice economically for their company.  

If the two companies come to terms and decided to pursue the project they will continue production immediately. The immediate production consists of the completion of two “full scale” prototypes. 

Per the Chief executive of Dassault, Eric Trappier he states that the prototypes would be a reassurance that the two companies have come to terms and can continue working together. The approximated flight launch for the new UCAVs would be around the year 2023.

CRJ900 aircraft

A new announcement came from commercial aircraft company Bombardier came in late March 2017, stating that CityJet, a Dublin-based regional carrier, is moving forward with four options that were included in the purchase agreement that was created earlier in the year. That agreement was composed of an order for six CRJ900 aircrafts and the option for four others in addition to the six. The order is estimated to run up a bill of roughly US $467 million.

The CRJ900 aircraft is already an extremely reliable and popular aircraft, especially in operation with SAS Scandinavian Airlines. In recent years alone, CityJet received twelve new CRJ900 aircraft, of which all are operated by SAS.

Airod recently gave Sikorsky their first upgrade to their S-61A-4 Nuri, which is a transport helicopter. This upgrade sound be good for at least ten years, which involves then receiving an all-new glass cockpit and the rotorcrafts avionics. This upgrade also changed the electronics to have a digital flight display and a moving map.

The first Nuri that got upgraded it took them five months to complete the process, this was done at Subang Airport which is on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. People don’t think the Nuri has had a lot of flight hours because of its age but has an estimate of 40,000 hours. With this upgrade, they airframe and components will be inspected and replaced if they don’t pass the test. At ASAP Semi, we like to know all parts and components of these Nuri so we can get all parts in stock, so they can just contact us for all replacement parts.

Bahari is looking for more projects to begin, they want to focus on the Lockhead Martin C-130 by upgrading the avionics and structure. The company has had great success in the past years with a $25-million-dollar deal with the US Navy, as well as upgrading the MRO for the Libyan air force. The next project that they are focusing on getting next is the upgrade of the cockpit and avionics for the Malaysia’s fleet of C-130’s. they plan on teaming up with Rockwell Collins a leader in aviation electronic solutions to get this deal because they feel like their knowledge can be a great help to being successful.

At Just Parts Unlimited we like to research aircrafts and find every part and their manufacturer that goes on the aircrafts, so when someone gets a deal like this we can stock our inventory. Projects like these are useful information to have and get our company name out there and gain ta good repetition from customers.

Aeroplane Operations in Europe
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) welcomed the European Union (EU)’s acceptance of Commercial Air Transport (CAT) using Single-Engine Turbine aero planes at night or in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (SET-IMC) in Europe. Here at ASAP Semi we deal with many international customers. Having knowledge of projects going on around the world are great for us so that we can stock our inventory to accommodate orders that might be placed.  We are very knowledgeable of which parts go on specific airplanes and if not we have services to inform us.

The publication of these aero plane rules opens new markets and stands to improve connectivity across the continent. Europe is now aligned with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) standards for CAT operations. This publication also marks the end of a 20-year effort by manufacturing and regulators. These new guidelines and aero plane rules are based on demanding safety analysis, which in all contains the necessary safeguards to simplify this form of passenger transport via the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). It will greatly accelerate overnight cargo delivery and help provide efficient connectivity to Europe’s most remote regions. Beginning in the early 1990s, work on a regulatory framework for single-engine commercial operations is now common around the world. Such common operations that were issues in 2005 are based on ICAO standards. In 2012, GAMA, its several of the many association’s members, and EASA participated in a rulemaking group created to help develop the agency’s regulatory framework.

At Just Parts Unlimited we are constantly trying to find ways to build relationships across the world to make sure parts do not go to places they shouldn’t be going to. We want this world to be a safe place and with the regulations we have in place we try to avoid all situations that can affect us in the future. One reason why Just Parts Unlimited stands out from others is because it is not all about the money here, we don’t sell to anyone who is not approved and we make sure the parts work well.

Eurowings-CRJ900-Bombardier

Eurowings is continuing its move to get away from their past as a regional airline. They are retiring the last Bombardier CRJ-900 jet. The move comes as Eurowings unifies its fleet around the Airbus A320.

The last scheduled flight, which landed earlier, was from Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden to Hamburg; Flight EW 4187. The aircraft was greeted by airport fire service at Hamburg airport with a blue light salute before it was discharged from the fleet.

Corresponding with its historical operations area, the Eurowings Bombardier fleet was designed as a regional airline within the Lufthansa Group. The aircraft is available in 200, 700 and 900 versions. They all have been in service at Eurowings during the intervening period. On April 6th 2001, the airline used its smallest version, the Bombardier CRJ-200, for its first flight. The company had 23 aircrafts of this type in the fleet with last CRJ-200 leaving the company in May 2012. They also moved two larger CRJ-700with 70 seats, to the larger CRJ-900 in April 2009. With one of the most consistent, largest and fastest fleet renewal programs of all the European airlines, they replaced this aircraft with 23 Airbus A320 that are twice the size in just a few months. While at the same time, the switch made it necessary to schedule appropriate retraining for the pilots and cabin crews. The whole transition is finally complete.

After 560,400 successful accident-free flight hours, there are no longer any Bombardier jets in active service. The technicians are now getting ready for the last three aircrafts with Eurowings registration for service with another airline. The Bombardier jets have four seats per row and a narrow central aisle. This means particularly bigger passengers have reservations about the regional jet. By using the Airbus A320 family consistently, the low-cost quality now provides their passengers with the same high comfort throughout the entire medium-haul fleet.
