Hi All, It is important to note that the newer C130J/LM100J platform has significant enhancements over the older models (C130H and older). Some of the improvements include: Avionics have been modernized. More efficient engines are used. New 6 bladed props that further enhance the efficiency of the e...

Re: The CSeries' middle seat

Its simple - 3-3 can be done. Get rid of the armrests, and shave off a couple of inches from each seat section. Any airline who would put serious consideration to this concept doesn't care about passenger comfort, so why not? As long as there are 3 seat belts, meets flammability requirements, and ho...
