Embraer in China, Long Range Business Jets, Onboard Connectivity, Emergency Training, Global 7000

December 16th, 2016

Business aviation and business jets are evolving constantly and we always keep up to date with training, education, trends and news about the industry to better serve our clients. Following are business aviation news articles and stories from around the world that grabbed our attention this week ending December 16th, 2016:


Embraer Scores In China

Add China to the list of more than 30 other countries where U.S.-made Phenom 300 aircraft—the world’s most popular business jet for the last three years, with the highest number of deliveries—now operates.

Embraer delivered two of the light aircraft to Colorful Yunnan General Aviation Co., Ltd., a newly established business jet customer based in Yunnan province in Southwest China. The company will employ them in a variety of missions, including business and high-end leisure travel, as well as customized tourism, disaster-relief work and medical-rescue.

Range Matters for Middle East Business Jet Buyers

Whether for business or leisure, for the ultra-wealthy of the Arabian Gulf, being able to fly without stopping to New York and other US East Coast cities is a major plus. There is currently one business jet able to perform such a task – the Gulfstream G650ER. As a result, the Savannah-based manufacturer’s flagship performs strongly in the region.

Whether for business or leisure, for the ultra-wealthy of the Arabian Gulf, being able to fly without stopping to New York and other US East Coast cities is a major plus. There is currently one business jet able to perform such a task – the Gulfstream G650ER. As a result, the Savannah-based manufacturer’s flagship performs strongly in the region.

But Savannah will not have the market to itself for much longer. Bombardier was at the Middle East Business Aviation Association show in Dubai promoting the virtues of the Global 7000. The large-cabin type – which has just begun flight testing – will also be able to reach the Big Apple in a single flight when it enters service in 2018.

The Canadian manufacturer believes the Global 7000’s size advantage over its rival from across the border will give it the edge in the Middle East.

And for those with a bit more cash to splash, Boeing says its newly launched BBJ Max 7 will be the first airliner-derived business jet to fulfill that mission: although Airbus suggests that its much earlier-to-service ACJ319neo is likely to develop extra range during the three years’ head start it has on the adapted 737.

Special Report: Onboard Connectivity

The onboard connectivity market remains one of the hottest and fastest growing segments of business aviation and for good reason. Business aviation travelers and crews these days insist on being connected to the internet or cell systems to do everything from monitoring their email and surfing the web, to being able to “text and talk” using smartphones and other devices while en route.

The onboard connectivity market remains one of the hottest and fastest growing segments of business aviation and for good reason. Business aviation travelers and crews these days insist on being connected to the internet or cell systems to do everything from monitoring their email and surfing the web, to being able to “text and talk” using smartphones and other devices while en route.

Gone are the days when these services were considered perks. Travelers demand continuous connectivity while en route from takeoff to landing, for both domestic and international travel. And they expect connection speeds to be as fast as those they have at home or in their offices, which puts pressure on owners and operators to make sure their onboard connectivity systems are capable of meeting those demands.

Once, passengers might have accepted some compromise in onboard Wi-Fi offerings available on business jets, but that is rapidly changing. That is due, in part, to the connectivity gains made by commercial airlines, which increasingly are offering more and faster services. Business aircraft clients and crew now expect owners and operators to not only offer internet access, but also ensure that the quality of the service is at least equal to that offered by many commercial carriers.

Training Business Aircraft Passengers for Emergencies

How alert are you as a passenger on a flight in a business aircraft? Do you pay attention to the pre-flight safety briefing? Do you become absorbed in work or conversations throughout the flight?

What would you do if your phone or computer overheated and caught fire, and the cabin suddenly filled with smoke? Or a fellow passenger became seriously ill? Would you know where to locate a fire extinguisher or defibrillator, or how to use them? What if the plane crash-landed?

Aircraft passengers need to be in mental “Condition Orange,” advises Louisa Fisher, program manager for cabin safety at FlightSafety International and vice chair of the NBAA Flight Attendants Committee. “Condition Orange means something could happen, but you’re already thinking of your options of what to do.”

Condition Orange is part of a color-coding situational awareness system developed originally for the military and law enforcement by the late Jeff Cooper. In Condition Green, you are relaxed and unaware of what’s around you; for example, iPhone on, earplugs in, focus somewhere far away. Your reaction times to an emergency will be slower, and you are more susceptible to becoming a statistic in a disaster. In Condition Orange, you are more vigilant of your surroundings and have a “what if” plan in your head.

WHY TRAIN YOUR PASSENGERS?

It’s not enough to assume that the flight attendant or flight technician, if one is onboard, will take care of any crisis. Passengers – especially frequent flyers – should be knowledgeable about the safety and medical equipment available and procedures for their use.

Bombardier Banking on Global 7000 To Boost Revenues

The new Global 7000 is expected to drive up Bombardier Business Aircraft’s revenues by $3 billion between its service entry in 2018 and the end of 2020, division president David Coleal said today at Bombardier’s investor day. To date, the Global 7000 has logged more than 30 hours over 15 flights, with certification flying to ramp up next year as more flight-test vehicles come online. The aircraft is sold out “through 2020,” he added.

Coleal also said that Bombardier’s business jet division is looking to double its aftermarket revenues from now until 2020. The installed base of Bombardier business jets will climb beyond 5,000 aircraft in 2020, fueling growth in service and part sales, he noted. To help meet this demand, the company is expanding its service network. This includes a new 300,000-sq-ft Bombardier Business Aircraft service center at Hollywood International Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, slated to be finished in 2018.
