Thank you every body
All the number are for 40t payload?
40t payload is a lot for a 787-9 ?
And not so much for A350-900 in the real life
How does it change the analysis when you go with "typical payload ?" Wha is the usual penalty (rule of thumb) for 1t more of weight ?

MSN 249 was testing a new component.
As always RR are working hard to improve, it’s what we do.
Other than that
But PAX wise, 1 or 4 engines is the same when on are seating in your long single aisle tube
707-320C : Range 5000 Nm it's a plain narrowbody, isnt'it ?
DC8 in excess of 5000 Nm also and closer to 6000 Nm indeed
VC10 in excess of 5000 Nm
Nothing totally new !
For info: From EASA Certification docs: T700 Weight 6160kg T7000 Weight 6180kg for comparison T1000 weight 6033kg I am surprised how close they all are; all dry weights engine only Also on the RR website they are claiming a 10% fuel burn improvement for the 7000 over the 700. Ruscoe T7000 is 6445 w...Jump to post
In Provence that' it
Let's what local newspaper will tell us (Le Dauphiné Libéré and La Provence)
It is huge
Been following all threads on A321neo vs 737 Max 10 but never responded before. I am an Airbus pilot who has joined a company flying brand new A321neos and soon the A321LRs. I have been doing some analysis using actual FCOM performance data. Below is what I've produced. The biggest conclusion I can...Jump to post
All that with the Leap...
PW 1100G Advantage coming in 2021 (2% + delta vs the current Pw and the current Leap)
Nonetheless in GE press kit GE9X is now to be certificated in 2019... that is a full 12 month year (as many other). No more quarterly timeframe
777X is a very very deep overhaul. The same kind of derivative the A330 was to the A310 for Airbus

AFAIK both the 777-9 and the 777-8 will have an MTOW of 351.5 t.
777-10 will be 360 t so why 777-8 can't go all the way to this mark ?Jump to post
… An interesting aspect is that now Airbus will own the design of an artificial-feel side stick… Interesting is the fact that airbus might have to think at harmonizing Flight laws...

Does the MRTT also go through all the rework like the KC-46A? EMP hardening etc? France is a nuclear weapon nation & air delivery is one option along sea launches ICBM Nuclear Weapon plane delivery will be done with the support of the MRTT, so we can imagine that they will be at least a little ...Jump to post
I think we should not underestimate the advantages an A350 or B787 bring to the customer concerning comfort. Higher cabin pressure, bigger windows and more space for the outboard PAX (curvature of side wall lining) is something passengers appreciate... Its hard to believe sometimes, we keep being t...Jump to post

What do you think ?
Like I said DAL and AA can apply for a waiver with out their unions approval, my guess is that is what they are planning on doing. I have no idea if the FAA will approve the waiver via an FRMS study or not (my guess is, in the long run, politically it will be approved in some manner) . UAL is a who...Jump to post

How is the A350 @10ab ?
I don't quite understand how these stairs impact the upper deck layout. Per exit regulations, all seats have to have exits fore and aft of them. On the A380, the forward stairs act as the forward exits in lieu of a door. With the stairs relocated to MD Door 2, any area forward of them on the UD can...Jump to post
HK Express released some impressive fuel burn data of their A320neo aircraft. Even more impressive when you take into account that their A320neo is heavier due to the additional seats over the A320ceo. https://imagr.eu/up/BmaKt_C56Tg8gXQAExVCu.jpg https://imagr.eu/up/7na1G_C56Tg70XQAAVeff.jpg https...Jump to post
At Bangalore Aviation we have a story by an industry insider on some of the PW engine problems at Indian carriers.

Airbus believes it can almost fully negate the weight increase of the new A330neo by implementing a reduction exercise to trim structure across the entire A330 airframe. It intends to shed 800kg of weight as it develops the re-engined aircraft, to offset the modifications required to accommodate th...Jump to post

Apart for the wing pylon, that appears to have more resemblance to the A350, aerodynamic improvement seems to be incorporated in the wingbody fairing. http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z160/keesje_pics/A330%20NEO%20wingroot_zpsqboua7fk.jpg Are you sure that this package wasn't part of the 242 t ve...Jump to post
But what i say is that Airbus AND RR had means to flight test it between TLS and XFW before entering cabin fitting.
So i find it strange
Anyway do you know if EP3 is all about durability or also SFC ?
Delivered in mai ? 6 months from now. Can't be a discovery. When was FF of the #1 EK380RR ?
i've checked : no EASA TCDS update since 2013 for the T900
A performance issue on a 10 years old engine ?
What are we missing?
An EP3 package ?
