For Russia, it is all about R&D and transportation security.
To re-start development and manufacturing of the whole line - from IL-114 turboprop to what is now called C929 - would be a huge achievement.
Attaturk is close to great neighborhoods with hundreds of hotels and restaurants. They are within 10-15 taxi drive.
The beauty of staying overnight (or longer) is important.
Would you enlighten me about the location and the infrastructure in the location?
Dave Majumdar of the National Interest has finally uttered what many people were thinking.

I have been there. It is the regional resort. Promoting San Andres is like saying that Ocean City, MD or Virginia Beach, VA are international resorts.
Colombia mainland is a miraculous country though.
I see the logic here. It would take years to build a clean-sheet widebody.
However, the sanctions may affect the aviation.
There is a need for a temporary solution. It's a matter of national security for the country stretched for nine time zones.
Dubai is a great place. Stay positive and free of any stereotypes. It depends on how long you stay, but I would recommend renting a car. The beauty of the place reveals to you when you are moving and seeing it like in 3D. It is very diverse. However, it is a sort of diversity that is natural and sui...Jump to post
The fourth airport Zhukovsky (previously known as Bykovo) also becomes a player.
Onur Air and many carriers from the former union's republics fly there.
So Moscow has four international airports.
It is a good question.
Moscow has three airports (SVO/UUEE, DME/UUDD, VKO/UUWW) and now they have added Zhukovsky (ZIA/UUBW).
So it makes four.
The traffic is close to 100 million pax. However, four international airports seem to be excessive.
Emirates will cease to exist without A-388. What are you talking about? I got absolutely addicted to the 380th. I fly to from IAD to DME via DXB. When I am not in haste. I prefer to spend a day or two in Dubai before going to Moscow, or Bangkok. I think there are many people who will abandon EK if t...Jump to post
It is obviously ORD. The history supports it in many aspects.
Chicago was the destination for rangers.
Chicago was the center for all trans-continental rail projects and later for interstate road projects.
One just needs a good globe to see how close Chicago to elsewhere.
Gays are not welcome in Malaysia. But I didn't see any protests anywhere.Jump to post
Hm... I flew both #131 and #133 for years. Never experienced anything like this.
Things happen. EK is still my favorite airline.
EK/QR to HNL? Why would they fly to HNL? Be serious, guys. Thailand alone had 32 million visitors in 2016. I love Hawaii and I love Florida (Key West). But these are not international resorts. In Thailand, $200.00 a night can buy you a boutique hotel. Unimaginable architecture. Unique service. Absol...Jump to post
I have doubts that the project with COMAC will go well.
We Russians need a 10,000 km range. It covers all domestic and international route needs.
Chinese want an aircraft with a much longer range.
However, these are going to be two different airplanes.
In this case - absolutely.Jump to post
I used to start my day with Yahoo. So I see the developments through the left wing prism. It doesn't require much education to sort out fake news from anything worthy. As to Internet-based outlets associated with particular individuals, very few of them are really relevant. Even the best of them hav...Jump to post
I used to watch Fox News. Tucker is No.1 show in America in terms of viewership. Sometimes I watch Hannity, who is No. 3.
The news feed is quite good on OANN, One American News Network.
The rest is liberal brainwash.
I am a little bit concerned by teething issues with PW engines mentioned here: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-27/airbus-profit-drops-27-as-superjumbo-production-rate-cut-again?utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=bd&utm_campaign=headline&cmpId=yhoo.headline&yptr=yahoo The iss...Jump to post
There are a few simple but absolutely mandatory rules in dealing with police in all the states. If one calls 911 - stay inside until the police officers enter your place. If one is in the car - hands on the wheel and follow the instructions. No jokes, no friendly talk in the initial contact. Respond...Jump to post
I just don't see any sense in going to Mars. With essentially same propulsion technologies? No. However, I think that assembling a big orbital station positioned further from Earth would be a formidable task. The station would be a revolving wheel, with gravitation. It could be a place where parts o...Jump to post
Nice news, really.
And SSJ operational outside temperature is up to +50C. I am referring to the recent LH turnaround while going to Erbil.
Vantaa is a perfect hub for Europe - Asia flights. And for East Coast USA flights to Asia. It is especially true at the time when Moscow hub is split between DME and SVO (and VKO to an extend). Plus, politics plays for HEL in this respect. However what seems to be feasible not always translates into...Jump to post
As I am frequent in the region due to business, I wouldn't be dramatic. These are GCC countries, most of them. These are virtually the only real monarchies in the world. This family feud is overblown, in my view. This is true that KSA, UAE and Bahrain asked Qataris to leave. But there are only ca. 3...Jump to post
I loved this:
I always disagree with the thread starter. I don't even believe he is a Belgian.
Still I decided not to start a thread.
I believe we should wait when PD-14 is certified and appears on the wings. Then UEC-Perm will deal with derated PD-10 and PD-14M and possibly PD-18R. What really matters: will our industry be able to develop a reliable and perspective engine? Hopefully it will. I went actually here to note that I di...Jump to post
The Russian twinjet will feature composite wings and empennage and an aluminum fuselage. The fuselage is 25 percent wider than that of a 737 and 11 percent wider than an A320, and will still be lighter than either aircraft. The question most often asked about the design.... is why the MC-21 doesn’t ...Jump to post
I would still opt for Honda W-RV. It appears to be close to H-RV here in the States. H-RV is also based on FIT. It has larger engine here. I drove my 1st Generation H-RV in Russia for 15 years. There is no better investment. It should be said that your choice should also depend on your household. If...Jump to post
I was flattered that someone took time to go through my irregular postings here and accused me of inconsistency. Thank you. However, many Trump's supporters can not understand his foreign policies.
