From what I've read, the red line that Turkey can't cross is switching on the radar and begin integrating them into the defense network. That isn't expected to happen until October. So there is still time for a diplomatic solution. It will be interesting if Trump defies our allies, the Defense Dept,...Jump to post
Well at least the early years will always be dirty, as certain measures were needed to break into the market. Some stories from those times could link to people that were around much more longer.

This has been flying under the radar but the prototype for the Eviation Alice all-electric commuter plane is set to be unveiled at the airshow.

Hi all. Just 2 quick questions:
1. I read in an article that Irkut is considering switching out the composites for traditional metal materials. Won't that incur a substantial weight penalty ?
2.How long could it take the Russian to develop indigenous composite materials ?

So now Canada.
So who's in the right here ? The FAA or all these countries ? Can so many of them be all overeating ???
Rest in peace. Sadly aircraft manufacturers don't seem to give a damn about STOL and unpaved runways nowadays so many airlines still have to use these 70-year-old props.
