Boeing and Ryanair

"Ryanair is proud to partner with Boeing and has operated an all-Boeing fleet since 1994," said Ryanair's Chief Operations Officer, Mick Hickey. Adding, "Our current order of 737-800s and the 737-MAX 200 'Game changer' will allow us to grow our fleet to 585 aircraft and our passenger numbers to 200 million per annum by 2024, maintaining our position as Europe's largest, and greenest and cleanest airline."

Boeing and Ryanair both celebrated the delivery of today’s airline's 450th Next-Generation 737-800. This particular meaningful milestone has been achieved no more than two decades, due to the Irish low-cost exporter. Since 1999, the Irish exporter exported an average delivery of 25 737-800s per delivery. Ryanair is the launch customer for Next-Generation 737-800s with more than 80 voided orders, but also for the 737 MAX 200, with 100 voided orders. The 737 MAX 200 can contain up to 200 seats, increasing potential income and offering airlines with up to 20 percent better fuel effectiveness per seat than today's most well-organized single-aisle airplanes.

"Ryanair has consistently demonstrated the outstanding economic, reliability and safety capabilities of the Next-Generation 737-800, using this airplane as the foundation to become one of the biggest airlines in the world," said Monty Oliver, vice president, European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "To deliver the 450th 737-800 is truly a significant milestone in both companies shared history and we look forward to supporting Ryanair on the next phase of its incredible journey with the introduction of the 737 MAX 200."

Bell Helicopters

Bell Helicopter Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, has unveiled its vision at the Heli-Expo in Dallas for the future of rotorcraft. The FCX-001 concept helicopter has new technologies to reduce noise, boost safety and performance, and enhance both the pilot and the passenger experience. Bell Helicopter officials call the concept helicopter “a 3D roadmap for delivering safer, smarter, and more efficient rotorcraft solutions.” It was borne out of a “highly collaborative team of problem solvers”. A core group of Bell Helicopter engineers and graphic designers, to address the evolving demands of customers and demonstrating key technologies that revolutionize the pilot and passenger experience, including a new anti-torque system in the tail boom designed to change the safety, noise, and performance parameters of vertical lift aircraft forever.

Hybridized propulsion combines progressive thermal engine cores for the main propulsion, for example, electric distribution and motors to drive the anti-torque system for more control and easier vehicle operations and maintenance.The company is exploring the right combination of material and geometry.

For example, an airframe that is made from advanced viable materials to provide structural performance and offer configurations that our customers desire. In order to provide enhanced situational awareness, visibility, and room. The airframe is also the front line for energy management where it harvests, stores, attenuates, and distributes external energy or system energy not already employed for useful work on the air vehicle. A landing gear with non-traditional geometries that facilitate function when combined with advanced materials and actuation. Morphing rotor blades that allow aircraft to optimize performance in different flight regimes.

A single pilot seat and an entirely new flight deck experience with the pilot controlling the aircraft through augmented reality and an artificial intelligence computer assistance system. A highly modular passenger cabin enhanced with the same augmented reality technology for individualized infotainment to catch up on world news, hold a video conference call, share documents with other passengers, or simply watch a movie or play music to relax.

Bell Helicopter’s President and CEO Mitch Snyder stated during the opening ceremony at HAI Heli-Expo 2017 in Dallas, “For the past 80 years, Bell Helicopter has imagined the art of the possible and brought those dreams to life. Six months ago, we created a dedicated team to focus on emerging technologies and how we could incorporate them into our products. Among that team’s first tasks was to display visually the technologies and innovations that present a roadmap that we envision bringing to market. Being a pioneer in the aircraft industry is in our DNA and we want to share this renewed passion with the world. The FCX-001 points the way for our future – a renewed focus on innovative solutions and technologies. When the time is right we look forward to sharing more of what we’re doing behind closed doors.”

Bell Helicopter Textron Inc., is a producer of commercial and military, manned and unmanned vertical-lift aircraft and the pioneer of the revolutionary tiltrotor aircraft. Globally recognized for world-class customer service, innovation and superior quality, Bell's global workforce serves customers flying Bell aircraft in more than 120 countries.

These include the Airbus H160 flying for the first time with Arrano engines; first flight of the Russian Helicopters Kamov Ka-62 on April 28 powered by Ardiden 3Gs; the July 27 first of Avic’s AC312e in China with the Arriel 2E; India’s first flight of the single engine HAL light utility on September 16 with the Shakti 1U (Ardiden 1H); and at the end of December, first flight of the Chinese Avicopter AC352, powered by the WZ16.

Even has speculation that the market will be flat in 2017. However the WZ16 will help. The engine was co-designed and co-produced by Safran’s Chinese part which works with CAPO, Dongan, and Aero Engine Corporation of China.

Contractors has informed the US Air Force that their off the shelf solutions is not guaranteed to meet all their demands that was included in their proposal.  This has caused in a suspension of releasing their final request to recapitalize its UH-1N Huey helicopter.

The final request for this month proposal has been prepared already, however the publication of this information was to be postponed till the summer. However the service’s second draft’s release of the request for proposal has been hindered till April 2017 according to the USAF. Having that said, the contract would be awarded in 2018 to deliver the first functioning helicopter in the year 2020.

The USAF has released its preliminary draft of the request for proposal to substitute the Bell UH-1N Hueys from the Vietnam period which called for a completely transparent challenge to acquire over 80 helicopters. However contractors have informed the US air force right after the request for proposal was submitted that it won’t be possible to meet all their maintenance threshold requirements using the available commercial aircraft.

Sikorsky, the manufacturer of the UH-60 Black Hawk could take over the Huey recapitalization since it has become a singular source provider for current requirements according to Helicopter manufacturers in the industry. Previous trials of the contract has reflected a singular source for procuring UH-60M Black Hawks, nevertheless the service has decided to proceed with a conventional fully open rivalry.

For the air force to carry a minimum of nine combat troops in addition to their equipment at a high speed of around 250 km/hr, they must call for the replacement helicopter.  Having that said, the US Air Force acquisition chief has stated that the replacement Hueys wouldn’t be necessary to carry over nine troops.
