AIRLINERS.NET CREW
FORUM MODERATOR

The much awaited 2008 Farnborough International Airshow is upon us and we have decided it would be appropriate to run 3 A.net Official threads on the major LoI / MoU / Order announcements made by Airbus, Boeing and other Manufacturers.

You can find the official 2008 Farnborough International details at the following link

www.farnborough.com

This thread is for announcements from other Manufacturers in relation to orders, these include but are not limited to Bombardier, Embraer, ATR and Sukhoi etc below are links to the Homepage of each of the relevent OEMS.

ATR Regional Aircraft Homepage

ATR Farnborough Press Page

Bombardier Aerospace Homepage

Bombardier Farnborough 2008

Embraer Homepage

Embraer Airshow and Events webpage

Sukhoi Homepage

That is just a brief listing of some of the Manufacturers we are referring too. Feel free to participate and add link of note if needed.


We ask that you refer to the following 2 links for Airbus and Boeing.

A.net Farnborough 2008 Airbus Order Thread

A.net Farnborough 2008 Boeing Order Thread

Additionally, we realise that many Military Contracts may be announced. We ask that those be posted in our Military Aviation & Space Forum as a lot of Military activity takes place at this event.

The purpose of these threads is to keep a daily tabulation on any announcements made and to keep seperate each companies announcements. Though we understand there will be split orders, having the official threads should make it a lot easier to track orders for each OEM and make for a good reference for the future of the site.

We do realise that there will / may be major orders announced given recent speculation and some media reports. Therefore, if an order is announced and listed here, by say a New A380 / 747-8 Operator, a Major A350 / B787 Commitment or by a carrier of regional or strategic importance, it should be entitled to it's own seperate thread. We ask that order be posted here with a link to the relevent thread and a link back to this thread, that way a free and open discussion can be had on the relevent carrier and order, without overwhelming the official threads.

In this case if Bombardier were to progress with the CSeries it certainly warrants it's own thread

Some news may well be worth posting in our Tech / Ops Forum

Some Engine orders and developments may suit that Forum as we will not be running an Engine Order thread and ask that the membership

Any enquiries please direct to moderators@airliners.net on behalf of the Moderating Crew we thank you for your assistance. It's a good week for aviation, let's make it a good week for the Forum. We've run these threads for Le Bourget 2007 and Dubai 2007 and we'd like to continue with Farnborough 2008

Thanks Vfw614, for all, the following is a link to the thread in question.

Bombardier CSeries Launched

A progressive move by Bombardier and it'll be of note to see how they go in the segment they target, interesting also to see who else they have lined up as potential launch customers. Lufthansa as a cornerstone commitment is a good start.

I don't consider this, or Embraers' 170/190 series a Regional Jet. These are purpose built people haulers vs having Bizjet heritage.

Not criticizing the moderators or yourself.

I've seen the CRJ and Embraer 35 to 70 seaters referred to as regional jets in the US market for several years. They are derivatives of business jets, morphed into mini airliners, and so were not designed from the beginning for what they do, and it shows.

The newer Ejets and the C series have been designed from the start to be airline equipment. For that reason I think the regional jet moniker is miss-leading.

I'm not alluding to or suggesting anything negative with the thread name or it's purpose. Segregating the subject into specific threads will keep the subject focused. Seems a good idea to me. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Maybe the moderators should split the threads a little more. One for narrow-body orders, which would cover the EJets and C Series, as well as A & B narrowbodies. Even within A&B, the narrowbody and widebody businesses are very distinct, with the dollar value being heavily weighted with widebodies. Then for Regional Aircraft, which would include the traditional Barbie Jet (CRJs) and JungleJets (ERJs), as well as the turboprops like the Q Series.

The trouble with segmenting as you suggest is that the CR7 and the E70 are pretty much direct competitors, and you suggest splitting them up on account of their heritage.

Should the 73G (based on a 60s design, albeit with a lot of changes) and the 32x (based on, and largely still, an 80s design) be similarly segmented?

Probably the easiest would be to simply have the thread labeled as "non Airbus/Boeing orders", just as the thread opener intended it to be.

Anyways, keep the orders rolling in - rather than us discussing appropriate headers all the time  Smile

While the EJets were being designed and initially marketed they were called regional jets by Embraer as well. It wasn't until years later they started trying to remove the moniker.

Bomardier is now calling all their airline offerings Commercial Aircraft if there website is any clue....

Other way around for Embraer. The ERJs were always intended for airlines. The Legacy 600 is a modified ERJ. In fact, it only entered service a few years ago.

Good point, yet it is less roomy than the bizjet based CRJ. The new E and C jets offer range, performance, and comfort beyond the "regional jets" as well. Just my opinion.

My point is, that the CRJ is a stretch and modification of a non-airline design, and the newer C and E equipment were designed from the beginning as airline equipment.

In the case of the 737 and A320, they were purpose built, not modified into their present day role for air carriers.

Were the 737 the same barrel section and design as the B52 or KC135 I could see the argument.

Not an order, but some related news:

Quote:
French-Italian regional turboprop manufacturer Avions de Transport Régional (ATR) is considering a new aircraft to complement its 46/50 passenger ATR 42 and 68/74-seat ATR 72 regional turboprop aircraft. CEO Stéphane Mayer confirmed that the airframer is studying a larger turboprop, probably to seat between 90 and 100 seats, and options including a two- or three-member family. “A stretch [of today’s ATR 72] is not a solution,” he said.

The company is “contemplating a larger, new-generation aircraft with the same capabilities as the new ATR 72-600 with lower emissions, [better] comfort, [more] concern for the environment and [better] cost-effectiveness, compared to similar-range turboprops and jets,” Mayer told AIN. “This could be in the 70- to 90-seat range or even up to 98 or 99.”

The new ATR family–two or three aircraft depending on the market–must represent a “real breakthrough” in technology and cost to the customer, Mayer added. The fuel bill is growing, he said, even for ATRs, but turboprops remain the most economic aircraft. “The big question is how the planet can afford air transport,” said Mayer. He could offer no explicit information about a potential engine, cost or a time frame, however.

“The main question is whether the 50-seater is still viable,” he said, alluding to the clear downward trend for turboprops of 50 seats and under that has taken hold.

More competition for the RJ's and especially the Dash 8-Q400!

"Brazil's Embraer unveiled orders for 22 of its 190 aircraft and options on 20 more: Aeromexico orders 12 190 aircraft and takes 15 options; Saudi low-cost carrier orders five 190 aircraft; and Niki Lauda's Niki orders five 190 aircraft with five options."


From Russia:

"Russia may launch a joint venture with China to continue the development of a new passenger airliner, MS-21, the head of a Russian state-run aviation corporation said on Monday.

"We will come to a decision with Chinese manufacturers next year on the possibility of setting up a joint venture to design a new mid-range passenger aircraft, MS-21," Alexei Fyodorov, the CEO of the United Aircraft Building Corporation, said at the Farnborough-2008 air show in Britain. "

Not at all. They have already ordered five. Today's order is a conversion of options they took when placing the initial order.
