MALAYSIAN OWNER OF AIRASIA INDIA SEEKS FLEET EXEMPTION TO FLY ABROAD NEW DELHI: The Malaysian owner of AirAsia India has urged New Delhi to allow the carrier to fly overseas, seeking exemption from the minimum fleet requirement of 20 aircraft to help enhance connectivity to Kuala Lumpur. “If the dispensation from 0/20 is granted, we can start international flights in three months depending on the other factors like slots. The Malaysian carriers have exhausted bilateral entitlements and cannot add any more flights to India. Indian carriers, however, do not at all fly to Malaysia. Exemption to Air Asia India would help increase connectivity between India and Malaysia, ” Datuk Kamaruddin Meranun, executive chairman AirAsia Berhad told reporters on Monday. The exemption request was made by Malaysian Business Council to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. According to the norms governing overseas flights, any Indian carrier needs to operate a fleet of 20 aircraft in the country to become eligible to fly abroad. The airline can fly international with the 21st aircraft. Air Asia India will induct its tenth aircraft this month and plans to increase its fleet size to 20 aircraft by the third quarter of next year. The airline, without the exemption, will be able to fly international only after that. AirAsia India and Vistara Airlines had both sought abolition of the mandatory international-flying requirements of 20 aircraft, and five years of local operations. The aviation ministry, after extensive consultation, proposed a 20 aircraft norm to replace the earlier norm. The new rules were approved by the Indian cabinet in June last year, making the two new carriers eligible to fly international before they complete five year of domestic flying in India. AirAsia Berhad and Tata Sons own 49% stake each in AirAsia India and the rest 2% is owned by two Tata executives. Source: The Ecomic times (Airlines / Aviation)

Day by day the Aeronautical Engineering is developing highly especially in Aircraft designing and giving new opportunity for job for cabin crew and as the following news:Airbus Moves to Increase Average A380 Capacity by 78 SeatsAirbus has unveiled a series of space-saving modifications for the A380 cabin that will result in room for another 78 passengers on average. Presenting the package at the April 4 to 6 Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, the company said average four-class passenger capacity will increase from 497 to 575, allowing the A380 to generate “significantly more revenue” for operators.An 11-abreast “three-five-three” seating configuration in the airplane’s main deck economy class accounts for the most additional capacity, allowing for another 23 passengers. Meanwhile, modifications allowing for a move to eight abreast to nine abreast in premium economy accounts for another 11.However, perhaps the most revenue-generating potential lies with a new forward stairs (NFS) design that involves relocation of the forward stair from Door 1 to Door 2 and combining the entrance of the NFS to the upper deck with the adjacent staircase to the lower-deck crew rest. That modification will add another 20 seats in business, economy plus and economy.Still more business class capacity comes from the removal of upper-deck sidewall stowage, increasing wall-to-wall cabin width at foot-rest height and generating space for up to 10 more business class seats/beds in an angled herring-bone arrangement.Separately, a new aft-galley stair module (AGSM) involves the redesign of the rear stair from a spiral agreement to a straight/square one, allowing for more storage volume for galley modules on the main deck. The AGSMprovides space for 14 more revenue passengers plus two extra food trolleys.Finally, the offerings include a combined crew-rest compartment (CCRC), where designers moved down the existing flight-crew-rest (behind the cockpit in the mezzanine area at Door 1) and combined it with the cabin crew rest on the lower deck. That modification allows for another three premium economy seats in the front of the main deck. Source : AIN Online newsDassault Takes On Top of Market Up a Notch With Falcon 8XIt’s said that the margin of victory in life can sometimes be measured in in¬ches. Dassault believes that another 43 inches (109 cm) of fuselage length will help make a big difference when it comes to the Falcon 8X. Along with a string of technological advancements, the long-range, large-cabin trijet, which the company began delivering to customers last year, boasts a longer passenger cabin than its 7X predecessor. That translates into 7 percent more volume—enough to allow for a longer galley, more legroom between seats, or an optional steam shower in the aft lavatory.The added inches—and the long list of other enhancements—push the price of the 8X to nearly $60 million, making it about 10 percent more expensive than the wildly successful 7X. But because the 8X offers a lot more than just extra room, Dassault believes that a ready audience exists for the airplane: some of the more than 200 owners of the 7X and perhaps those waiting—and waiting—for the under-development Bombardier Globals as well as for the Gulfstream G650ER, which is in production but has a long backorder list. The Globals are even more expensive than the 8X, at $71 million and $75 million, respectively, as is the Gulfstream, which runs upwards of $66 million.Dassault might be right about the market for the 8X, which offers a quick way for owners of earlier models to take a step up. The aircraft has a range of 6, 450 nautical miles (with eight passengers and three crew, at Mach 0.8), 500 more than the 7X. The extra range—courtesy of an additional center-fuselage fuel tank and a lighter, redesigned wing—enables the 8X to fly nonstop from Hong Kong to London, Paris to Singapore, and Beijing to Los Angeles. The reworked wing also keeps the 8X competitive on short runways; it needs 6, 000 feet to take off fully loaded but can stop in 2, 150 feet.The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307D engines have been optimized to offer 6, 725 pounds of thrust each, with a 5 percent thrust increase and lower emissions. Dassault claims the 8X is more fuel-efficient than other offerings in this class.And you get all manner of other goodies that weren’t available when the 7X hit the market back in 2007. Things like:• A cabin altitude of just 3, 900 feet at a cruising altitude of 41, 000 feet, ensuring that you arrive at your destination not only freshly showered but alert and refreshed. (The 8X has a service ceiling of 51, 000 feet.)• More cabin layouts. Thanks to nearly 1, 700 cubic feet of space, you can choose from more than 30 layouts in three zone configurations. Possibilities include turning the aft cabin into a media lounge with oversized divans and a pop-up monitor or making it a separate stateroom with a sliding pocket door. Mid cabin there’s also space to install a six-seat conference grouping.• More cabin windows. You get four more than on the 7X for a total of 33. That means natural light in more places.• A choice of three galley layouts, and galleys that are 25 percent larger overall. The added space means you can accommodate the larger chillers and refrigerators envisioned to service passengers on what can be 14-hour flights.• New cabin seats that are electrically assisted and eliminate the traditional mechanical cabling system for greater reliability. Full electric function seats also will be available.• A new high-definition entertainment system.• New, color-adjustable LED lighting.• A new system that increases cabin humidity by at least 20 percent.• A redesigned convertible crew rest area opposite the galley that converts into a closet when not in use.• An optional vacuum lavatory in the forward cabin. (You really want this. Think odor abatement next to the galley. Enough said.) The vacuum lav in the aft cabin remains standard.• A better cockpit. It incorporates super-comfy seats and takes styling cues from Dassault’s new 5X twinjet. And it features the new EASy 3 glass-panel digital avionics, which are built around the Honeywell Primus Epic System and the Elbit head-up display, which combines enhanced and synthetic vision.The 8X builds on the features and flight characteristics that have made the 7X popular, adding increased utility and luxury. Dassault is so convinced that this is a winning formula that it already is expanding its completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. That seems like a prudent move, because while the new airplane may be only a few feet longer than its predecessor, it really is miles apart.Source: AIN Online news

CANADA LIMITS RECREATIONAL DRONE USEOttawa - Canada on Thursday announced limits on the use of drones for recreation following a surge in the number of incidents due to their rapid rise in popularity.Henceforth drone operators will be prohibited from flying them above an altitude of 90m or within 75m of buildings, vehicles or people.They will also be barred from using them at night, or within nine kilometres of an airport, heliport or other aerodrome.Transport Minister Marc Garneau told reporters that the drones must also be marked with contact information in order to help authorities track down the owners of wayward drones.Offenders may be fined up to Can$3 000."I take very seriously the increased risk to aviation safety and to people on the ground caused by drones. That is why I am proceeding with this measure which takes effect immediately - to enhance the safety of aviation and the public, " Garneau said.He pointed to a number of close calls between drones and commercial aircraft, and other incidents reported to police involving the flying machines - up from 41 incidents in 2014 to 148 last year.The interim regulations - which will apply until new comprehensive drone rules are rolled out in 2018 - do not apply to commercial uses of drones.The rules were welcomed by airlines and airports.Daniel-Robert Gooch, head of the Canadian Airports Council, said the proliferation of drones in airspace around airports had become "frightening"."We are pleased the government of Canada has taken concrete steps to keep Canada's airspace safe, " he said..News24 News.

Man who made a plane on terrace gets wings Amol Yadav, a pilot who assembled a six-seater aircraft on the terrace of his three BHK flat in Charkop, and who was given an opportunity to display his creation at the Make in India Week in Mumbai last year, will be allotted a 157-acre plot in Palghar by the state government to set up his enterprise. Yadav plans to manufacture six-seater and 20-seater aircraft in India, under the banner of his Thrust India Company.Yadav, 41, a deputy chief pilot with Jet Airways, is scheduled to meet with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday, along with representatives of companies that specialise in manufacturing aircraft engine and other technology. “It’s a dream come true, ” Yadav said, “I went to the US for training in 1995 and saw a lot of people, including middleclass families, assembling used planes to create customised flying machines. I was inspired to do the same in India.”Mumbai Mirror reported last year how Yadav, over a period of six years, put together a plane in his house that he shared with 19 members (‘Plane put together on a Charkop terrace features in Make in India’; MM, February 13, 2016). He created an aircraft that can soar up to 13, 000-ft at 1, 500 ft per minute, and cover a distance of 2, 000-km at the top speed of 185 nautical miles an hour. The plane is currently parked at the Dhule airport.“I’m thankful for the support I have been receiving. The government has big dreams in terms of regional air connectivity and I’m a believer that it cannot be achieved till we start manufacturing planes in India. Once we start building aircraft, there will be a revolution in the Indian aviation industry, ”

Udan scheme: implementation, traffic demand keyDeveloping regional routes under the Udan scheme is expected to eventually feed into major routes, and that augurs well for the aviation sectorLast week, the aviation ministry released a list of successful bidders under its Udan scheme, set to connect big cities with smaller towns. The five airlines that were awarded the rights to fly on so-called regional routes are Airline Allied Services (Air India’s subsidiary), SpiceJet Ltd, Turbo Megha Airways, Air Odisha and Air Deccan. Udan is short for Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik, which loosely translates as let the common man fly.Under the scheme, the selected airlines will enjoy a three-year exclusivity period on the specific routes they have won. This means there will be no competitive pressures to worry about during that time. Aviation turbine fuel tax rates have been reduced in collaboration with the states. There are no airport charges. Airlines will reserve 50% of seats under the stipulated fare cap.According to Dhiraj Mathur, partner and leader of the aerospace and defence practice at PwC India, “the difference between earlier attempts to boost regional airline connectivity and now is that there is immense government support in the form of lower taxes, viability gap funding (or subsidy) and assurances to build airport infrastructure.”But the challenges are immense. Regional airline operations are likely to be leaner with thin margins, meaning the biggest risk really is if the government doesn’t pay the subsidy on time. Getting payments from the government is a huge problem, as there are elements of red tape and corruption entwined here, said Mathur, adding, “Moreover, the state governments, too, have to live up to their commitments (as far as tax reliefs are concerned).”What about profitability? According to Ansuman Deb, an analyst at ICICI Securities Ltd, the government’s cost sops will ensure loss-free operations unless the traffic demand is very low. However, traffic growth is of supreme importance, and it is difficult to predict traffic demand on these routes. That uncertainty is a risk for this scheme. One of the biggest challenges in developing regional routes is the lack of depth in the market, translating into low load factors.In general, India has seen 20% domestic passenger traffic growth in recent years, according to data from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Under the scheme, traffic demand situation will be clearer as the scheme progresses. “However, some routes have better potential than others like Delhi-Shimla, ” says Deb, adding, therefore, that the profitability of operators will be route-dependent. Fares on seats not part of the scheme and compensation airlines shall receive from the government will also play a key role in determining profits. It helps that the outlook on crude oil prices is muted from a medium-term perspective.An important objective of the scheme is to facilitate / stimulate regional air connectivity by making it affordable. Analysts say even as the intent of the policy is good and the efforts laudable, its success will depend on proper implementation and traffic demand/load factors. It’ll be a while before the results are visible, and its success can be measured. Needless to say, if the scheme is successful, it will have a positive impact on travel- and hospitality-related sectors. Domestic air-travel demand could get a fillip, which will be positive for the aviation sector from a long-term perspective. Developing regional routes is expected to eventually feed into major routes, and that augurs well for the sector.Source: LivemintWritten by: Pallavi PengondaDate: 04/04/2017
