Re: The Shed has found a new home

I wonder too if they'd entertain restarting production if there were some special ops orders out there to grab (also makes one wonder about a possible NEO, ) the 360 used all of 1400 hp PT6's shockingly for how big an aircra...

Could the GE Catalyst be used to reengine 19-30 seaters?

We all know there's not much in the way of 19 seaters and no 30 seaters currently on the market, some (for example the EMB120) find their lives coming to an end due to lack of props, or other parts, as well as the obvious economic issues with flying that small of aircraft. However there still does s...

The E195E2 is three rows longer than the E1, so should be another 12 seats so my guess would be 130 total if in a similar configuration.

Re: Horizon Air reactivates retired Q400s

Just take the 100 e2s Skywest has on order! I would think the a320s could cover a lot since they’ve really trimmed back the VX network. Aren't those cancelled? Sounds like they aren't 'cancelled' but due to parts of the contract being contingent on scope relief can't be seen as 'firm' anymore... ht...
