Re: Airbus A350 XWB news

Increasing capacity by increasing exit door (size?) in case of evacuation, but not only.... I guess they will redesign monument location in the cabin, retrieve some space from lavatories/galley, crew rest compt, push sidewalls closer to fuselage skin, move aft pressure bulkhead backwards one or two ...

Re: Belgian company to train chinese pilots?

Venyo B737NG Sim's are EASA, FAA and CAAC approved,
I guess they are looking to bundle an offer to CAAC together with BFS and New CAG to offer a training package like Aerosim is doing in Paris...just thinking out loud I haven't still read the article.

You probably mean it could be structural damage.
No, it "should"be, since NDT inspector's are linked to structure damages. The level of certainty is higher than "could", as it is a bit more than an assumption.

To summarize your BS. A cargo loader hits an A/C, making the airline or the travel agent go bankrupt!

Because you need, either to pay for it, either to be in the SB effectivity, either to raise an EO to validate the modification.
There's no emergency AD so many different possibilities...

Re: Airbus A220 (ex-Bombardier CSeries) news

May be a different EEC software...
Fuel/Air ratio might be too lean to fly upper FL, therefore altitude limitation has been put in place to avoid flame-out...Just a guess.

Re: Airbus A320 and A320neo news

Interresting info, thanks.
On the LH case I think the limitation is nevertheless linked to the ELAC software issue.
On the new cabin layout from Airbus, it is called spaceflex if I'm not mistaken.

Re: Airbus A320 and A320neo news

Its a known issue since the modification of the cabin of the A320 ceo as well. Its was called A320 Max. In certain conditions on the ground the aircraft is on the edge of tail tipping. Never heard about that one, the limitation with LH is probably linked to the new aft cg limitation. 1. Aft cg 2. D...

Re: Air Antwerp, a new airline from Antwerp Deurne airport

Aircraft is very old, do they still find spare parts to fix it up?
Antwerp being close to salty environment, with the sea and all, the aircraft should be quite exposed to heavy corrosion, is it safe to fly with such an old rusty aircraft?
Aren't people aware that the"thing" is more than 30 years old?

A smooth delivery and acceptance is always a sweet dream for the FAL delivery manager. What really matters is the "R" concession's severity, and t...
