The high power PW4000-112 inch series was designed with titanium fan blades, while both GE and RR used far lighter composite fan blades to lower the centrifugal forces. To lower the weight of the titanium fan blades , special hollow titanium fan blades were designed. In time it showed that the PW fa...

Re: 777-300ERSF Freighter News and Discussion Thread

November is nearly done. Any news on this? IAI has still a few days left to perform the first flight of the 777-300ERSF, but it's "all quiet on the IAI front", an indicator that the program is slipping futher behind the original schedule : STC certified at the end of 2022. IAI is still in...

On top a that : a three crew , 4 engined aircraft with a F/E on board is far more flexible in non normal operation(s) Note : IAI is one of the engine MRO's still s...

Re: N646UA: High Age 767 Potential Corrosion Issue?
