Re: Qatar Airways has grounded 13 A350’s at the request of the Qatar Aviation regulator

Yes that is true for items that are reportable based on the various criteria used. I’m aware of FAA criteria but not EASA or Qatar. I’d assume this issue would warrant reporting, but can’t say so for sure. Any common issue that makes 13 aircraft unairworthy (ie grounded) would require to be reporte...

Umm - you would still have to certify it and it would be a lot more effort than turning an A351 into an A351F. With symmetrical holds the COG would probably be too far aft with a 900 front and 1000 rear. Almost all commercial aircraft seem to have a longer front section - there is probably a good r...

Re: Updated: Reuters: Airbus launches A350 freighter

Do the planes need a new certificate of airworthiness after conversion? If no, which seems likely to me, there is no problem. They get issued when the aircraft first is added on the register. So if an aircraft if on the FAA register (N register) and gets converted, it is converted under an STC proc...
