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

The development in Aeronautics is increasing day by day; professionally Aeronautical Engineers are taking very much important role and having very high place, and the development of it gives to itself much kind of Job opportunity, national or international. The following new is showing the new creation of Airbus:AIRBUS SHOWS NEW AIRLINERS THOUGH A330NEO MISSES SHOWAirbus is flying three airliners here, but a fourth that might have been on display remains on the ground at Toulouse. That is the A330neo, whose Trent 7000 engines have only just been dispatched by Rolls-Royce from its Derby, UK factory, many months late. Meanwhile, show visitors will see the A321neo and A350-1000 making airborne debuts. Both types are in the certification flight testing phase. The “flagship” A380 will also be shown, both flying and static.The delayed first flight of the A330neo is now scheduled for the end of the summer, Didier Evrard, head of programs for Airbus Commercial Aircraft, told journalists at a media briefing in Toulouse on June 9. Two prototypes are fully assembled, but won’t have their powerplants fitted until Safran—also at Toulouse—fits nacelles to the Trent 7000s. “Rolls-Royce is a bit late, but their bench-test results are good, ” added Fabrice Bregier, president of Airbus Commercial Aircraft. Airbus now plans to make the first A330neo delivery from Toulouse in mid-2018.Supply chain problems in the A350 program are now under control, although some quality issues remain, according to Bregier. There are now 86 A350-900s in service with 12 operators, and operational reliability has been excellent, he claimed. “We will reach our target of 99 percent by the end of 2017—the fastest time to achieve that standard of any widebody. We are on course to achieve a production rate of 10 per month by the end of 2018, ” he added.The A350-1000 flying here is one of three prototypes now flying. They are close to achieving the planned 1, 000 flight test hours. Those hours have included a cold-weather test campaign in Canada, followed by high-altitude airfield performance tests in Bolivia. Last month, 300 Airbus employees flew as passengers on a long-range test flight that was cabin-crewed by Virgin Atlantic. Evrard said that the overall performance of the A350-1000 is as expected. Bregier said that certification would be achieved by late summer, and first delivery at the end of the year.But there is only one customer—Asiana—for the smaller A350-800. Evrard told AIN that Airbus was discussing alternative options with the carrier, which has ordered eight. As for the projected larger version, dubbed the A350-1100, Evrard said it was “a possibility but not a priority.”Airbus delivered 28 A380s last year, but continues to reduce the production rate of its largest airliner towards just one per month next year. The company believes that this will economically sustain availability until demand for the A380 picks up, early in the next decade. That will happen because traffic continues to grow at a rate that will impact landing and takeoff slots at an increasing number of airports, Evrard said. “There are limits to the point-to-point approach, ” he said, adding that according to Airbus calculations, a carrier can profitably operate the A380even if with only a small fleet.Bregier said that there was “no business case” for an A380neo, but added that fitting winglets was “a good possibility.” He said that the company is now concentrating on promoting cabin innovations for the A380 that will offer up to 80 more seats, and thus achieve “very competitive” seat-mile costs. The gains in capacity come from relocating and redesigning the forward stair (up to 20 seats); adding an aft-galley stair module (14 seats); going to an 11-abreast configuration in economy (23 seats) and nine-abreast in premium economy (11 seats); and removing the sidewall stowage on the upper deck (six seats). Airbus will be explaining the various new A380configurations to potential customers in its pavilion at the end of Chalet Row A here.Airbus has a huge, 5, 500-strong backlog for the A320 family (including more than 5, 000 Neos). New aircraft ordered today cannot be delivered before 2021, Bregier said. The current production rate is 50 per month. Airbus plans to increase this to a record 60 per month by mid-2019. The fourth final assembly line in Hamburg will start soon (the others are in Mobile, Tianjin and Toulouse). According to Evrard, Airbus has made “a huge transformation” in production processes for its narrow-body airliners. But although 116 A320/A321neos have now been delivered to 25 operators, there have been problems with their new-technology engines from alternative suppliers Pratt & Whitney and CFM International. But P& W is solving its PW1000G development issues, and CFM is catching up on LEAP-1A production delays, according to Bregier. When asked about the recent inflight shut-down incident in India, Evrard said the cause was understood, could be fixed, and there were “no certification issues.” The A321neo flying here is fitted with the CFM powerplants.Virtual reality is the big theme of the Airbus pavilion here, this time (Static Display C4). The company promises to “convey an improved experience” of its products by using the latest digital immersive and interactive display technologies.

MORE JOB OPPUTUNITIES FOR AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERS, AME & AVIATION SECTOR JOBS, AFTER LAUNCHING OF UDAN SCHEME.Indore-Gwalior-Delhi flight under Udan schemeIndore: Under recently launched ‘Udan’ scheme, the city will be connected to Gwalior with a Indore-Gwalior-New Delhi flight. Gwalior has been identified as under-served airport. ATR plane service would be started by Alliance Air likely by September. The fare of Indore-Gwalior would be Rs 2500.Udan scheme is a component of the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP) which was released on June 15, 2016 and launched on April 27 by PM Narendra Modi in Shimla. Udan, a scheme with slogan of ‘Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik (Let fly common men of the country), is an endeavor to make regional connectivity easy with flights covering distances up to 800 km through a market-based mechanism.Aviation sources inform that following a study ministry of civil avaition had identified 43 cities which are either underserved or unserved. In Madhya Pradesh, Gwalior airport was identified as under-served one. Thus it has been listed for tapping under regional connectivity scheme (RCS). Gwalior is being linked with two commercially potential cities Indore and New Delhi. Thus a flight would be started connecting Gwalior with Indore and New Delhi.Sources said that though the scheme will be launched in four phases. Gwalior is placed in second phase will is as per schedule should roll out in June, but the most likely it may start from September this year. A present there is no air connectivity between Indore and Gwalior. Only road and rail connectivity is present there. Travel from both means takes almost 12 hour, while through flight it would be completed within one hour.Air India’s subsidiary Alliance Air will be operating flight between Indore-Gwalior-New Delhi under RCS. Alliance Air will operate regular flights using a 48-seater ATR-42 all-economy class aircraft.As per policy, from total seats 50 seats would be put under Udan scheme; where passenger will have to pay fare for one hour flight would be Rs 2500 only. This would be a subsidised fare for passenger. Government would pay the subsidy amount to airlines through Viability Gap Funding (VGF). The VGF will be used to bridge the gap between the cost of airline operations and expected revenue."Definitely we will support the Udan scheme from the city airport and make sure that the scheme is a huge success."Aryama Sanyal, Airport Director, Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar Airport

AVIATION SECTOR IS ON BOOM. MORE OPPURTUNITIES FOR AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERS I AME I CABIN CREW AS SPICE JET ORDERS 100 NEW BOING AIRCRAFTSREGISTER FOR ADMISSIONwww.ameadmission.orgSpiceJet's mega order: Indian aviation market set to surpass Japan, become 3rd largest   By Sindhu BhattacharyaNew Delhi: SpiceJet today announced an order for 100 new Boeing 737 Max aircraft for $11 billion at list prices, the second highest aircraft order ever from India. Combined with an earlier order, this means it will receive 155 narrow body jets between 2018 and 2024, besides also having purchase rights for 50 more wide body aircraft from the same manufacturer. The narrow bodies will be used to service the domestic market as well as select international destinations. The wide body fleet of 50 Boeings – when SpiceJet does firm up the order for it – will enable the airline to launch a long haul low cost service like Singapore Airlines’ subsidiary Scoot and Norwegian Air.Anyhow, the new aircraft are 8 percent more economical on a per seat basis and about 20 percent better in fuel efficiency. Chairman and MD Ajay Singh said today the new aircraft will allow the airline to fly for an hour longer, which means new international destinations will anyway be added to its network. As of now, one in four SpiceJet flights or 25 percent of the network flies to international destinations, with 10 daily services to Dubai alone.So why is SpiceJet going out on a limb to place a mega aircraft order which will require mega bucks? Singh said today that the domestic market has been growing at about 25 percent in recent years. “Indian airlines together have about 400 aircraft now, even if we take growth at 20 percent going forward, this means 80 more aircraft are needed each year….as the market grows, appetite for fleet expansion also increases.”SpiceJet wants to obviously have a proportionate share of the domestic aviation pie. Remember, India’s domestic market is on track to surpass 100 million passengers by March this year for FY2017. This means India would overtake Japan to become the world’s third largest domestic market, behind USA and China.In reaching this milestone, India will have achieved average domestic traffic growth of over 15 percent per annum since the liberalisation of the sector commenced in FY2004.Fiscal 2017-18 is expected to be the third consecutive year of domestic growth above 20 percent, according to global research agency Centre for Asia Pacfic Aviation.Passenger growth could be as high as high as 25 percent, though this may be tempered 3-5 percentage points due to the recent demonetisation.Based on aircraft deliveries, competitive dynamics and the positive outlook for the economy, growth above 20 percent could continue for up to a further two years. In such a scenario, every Indian airline is looking at mega expansion, reason enough for SpiceJet to also chip in with a large order for aircraft. CAPA says Indian airlines are together scheduled to induct 60-65 narrow bodies and 10-12 regional aircraft in FY2018. “The pace of aircraft inductions in FY2018 will be one of the key drivers of traffic growth, ” it says.Earlier this week, GoAir placed a firm order for 72 A320neo aircraft, doubling its firm order book for the aircraft type to 144. It now operates a fleet of twenty three aircraft. With the neo induction, Go Air will expand its network and offer fliers better connectivity. “The A320neo provides the latest technical innovations and unbeatable economics….This new order will further strengthen our network by adding more domestic and international routes in the years to come, ” said MD & CEO, Wolfgang Prock-Schauer. Market leader IndiGo already has 125 aircraft in its fleet and another about 400 on order, with staggered delivery schedules.Almost all airlines use the sale and leaseback model to pay rational price for mega aircraft purchases. Singh of SpiceJet said this model and some other financing models were under consideration for the 100 new aircraft this airline will acquire. “We will not raise fresh debt, neither will we need to infuse equity to finance this aircraft buy. We are looking at the cheapest finance options so that the balance sheet does not get impacted”.SpiceJet, which was briefly forced to ground its fleet in late 2014 when it ran out of cash, has about 13 percent of the Indian air passenger market. That is behind market leader IndiGo which has over 40 percent share, the Jet Airways group and state-run Air India. Besides the narrow bodies, SpiceJet also flies a fleet of the smaller Bombardier Q400 aircraft on regional routes.Singh said he had been mulling an expansion of the small aircraft fleet too but these plans have been suspended for now. It is interesting to note that the government’s regional connectivity scheme, for which airlines must place bids by Monday, relies almost entirely on airlines which have a fleet of small aircraft or are willing to acquire such a fleet. Singh said he will be placing his bids by Monday.AVIATION SECTOR IS ON BOOM. MORE OPPURTUNITIES FOR AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERS I AME I CABIN CREWREGISTER FOR ADMISSIONwww.ameadmission.org

Opportunities for Job is growing in branch of B.Tech Aeronautical, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and Cabin in India day by day as per as the following news.TURBO MEGHA AIRWAYS GETS AOC TO EXPAND UDAN FLIGHTS TO MUMBAI, SHIRDI. MUMBAI: Hyderabad-based Turbo Megha Airways today received the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from aviation regulator DGCA which will enable it to expand the UDAN flights to metros of other regions such as Mumbai. Turbo Megha Airways, which is the holding company of regional carrier TrueJet, has been granted the AOC under the scheduled commuter operator (SCO) category, a senior official from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said. Under the category, air operators are allowed to operate with aircraft having a maximum All Up Weight (AUW) not exceeding 40 tons.Turbo Megha is one of the five air operators which won bids to operate on 128 routes connecting 70 airports, of which 31 are unserved under the regional connectivity scheme - Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik (UDAN) - where fares are capped at Rs 2, 500 for one-hour flights. Air India's regional arm Alliance Air, budget carrier SpiceJet, private air charter operators Deccan Aviation and Air Odisha are the other players which will be operating flights to unserved and underserved airports under the UDAN scheme.According to the official, Turbo Megha, being a scheduled regional operator, was not allowed to fly to metros of other regions, "but under the SCO category they can now commence flight services to those metros as well." Last month, Trujet had said it will launch air services on three new routes of -- Hyderabad-Cuddapah, Hyderabad-Nanded and Nanded-Mumbai -- under the regional connectivity scheme 'UDAN'.It also plans to fly to Maharashtra's Shirdi airport, which is expected to be functional soon. The airline currently operates three ATR-72 aircraft and acquired one more recently, taking its fleet size to four planes. The Economic Times.18/05/2017

The branch Aeronautical is developing very much nowadays (Designing, and creating model...) not only national but especially international , and professionally, B.Tech Aeronautical and Aircraft Maintenance Engineering have a very high prestige place for those who are choosing to be in this branch because especially it is very important and useful for Government also as per as the following news (International aviation news )Boeing: T-X Offering for U.S. Air Force is 'Production Relevant.The Boeing-Saab offering for the U.S. Air Force’s T-X advanced jet trainer requirement is a “production relevant” aircraft, Boeing asserted this week. The manufacturer batted down the suggestion that its clean-sheet design will take longer to deliver to the service than competing jets based on operational models.Meeting with reporters on May 17 in St. Louis, Boeing’s T-X program manager Ted Torgerson maintained a tight grip on information about the single-engine, twin-tail, high-wing design the companies rolled out last September, declining to reveal their investment in the program, the work share with Saab or the number of flight hours flown by now two working jets. The T-X1 flew for the first time on December 20; the T-X2 flew on April 24.Asked about how many flight hours the jets have accumulated, Torgerson said only: “They have flown a lot, as many as four times in a day.” He added that Boeing has already collected what the Air Force requires for flight-test data, including time-stamped cockpit audio and video, to make the service’s June 28 deadline.Valued at $16.3 billion, the T-X program calls for 350 jets and ground-based training systems to replace the aging Northrop T-38 Talons the Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command uses for undergraduate pilot training. Following the submission of flight-test data in June, competing contractors have until late fall to make final proposal revisions. They expect the Air Force will select one jet type in December, launching the program's engineering and manufacturing development phase.The Boeing-Saab offering, powered by a GE Aviation F404-GE-402 engine, faces competition from Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries, proposing the T-50A variant of KAI’s single-engine T-50 Golden Eagle; and Italy’s Leonardo and its U.S. subsidiary DRS Technologies, offering the T-100 variant of the twin-engine Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master.At Lockheed Martin’s annual media day in March, executive vice president Rob Weiss said that his company if necessary could deliver the T-50A six years earlier than a clean-sheet design, saving the Air Force $1 billion it would otherwise spend on sustaining the T-38. Torgerson responded: “I have no rebuttal to that because how do they know? All I know is that we have invested to build two production jets that are ready to go…a full development program, SRR [systems requirements review], PDR [preliminary design review], CDR [critical design review] and a full flight-test program. We built two because we wanted to prove that we weren’t just a demonstrator; we have an airplane we can build repeatedly.”If the Air Force selects the T-50A, Lockheed Martin would assemble it in Greenville, South Carolina. Leonardo and DRS Technologies would assemble the T-100 in Tuskegee, Alabama. On May 15, Boeing announced that T-X assembly would take place in St. Louis, supporting 1, 800 direct and indirect jobs. Formerly the headquarters of its Defense, Space and Security Group, the greater St. Louis area is where Boeing builds the F/A-18 and F-15 fighters and the Joint Direct Attack Munition.“When you look at the skill mix of the airplanes we produce at this site, the capabilities we have at this site, the facilities we have in place; we don’t have to build anything new, we’ve got all the facilities we need right here, ” Torgerson said.AIN Aviation News19/05/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The aviation development gives very high prestige for the country, and more over it gives opportunities of job in branch of Aeronautical Engineering, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering, and Cabin crew as per the following news.WITH 1, 080 AIRCRAFT ORDERS, INDIA TO BE 3RD LARGEST BUYER OF PASSENGER PLANES.MUMBAI: With over 1, 000 aircraft set to be on order, India is poised to become the third-largest buyer of commercial passenger planes in the world, with only the US and China ahead of it. The aircraft order book of the Indian airline industry will soon touch 1, 080, which would mean that for every aircraft in service, there will be 2.2 aircraft on order, said a report released by the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation(CAPA), a Sydney-based aviation think tank.There are an estimated 480-odd aircraft in the country at present. Currently, a total of 880 aircraft are on order, with most of the orders placed by low-cost carriers such as IndiGo and SpiceJet.In the coming weeks, full service carriers Jet Airways and Vistara are expected to add to the tally and take the total order placed by Indian carriers to a four-digit number. The 2.2 ratio would be the highest of any major aviation market in the world.But what should have the government and airport operators worried is that of the expected 1, 080 aircraft, more than 700 are scheduled for delivery within the next decade, and 400 within the next five years. This excludes orders yet to be placed and equipment to be taken on lease."In addition to the incumbent carriers, it is possible that India might see the entry of 1-2 new large start-ups, including Qatar Airways' proposed venture. Aircraft induction on this scale will require massive infrastructure development, skilled resources and aircraft financing at a pace that has not been seen before in India, " said the CAPA report. The CAPA report pointed out that airport infrastructure challenges could constrain growth and lead to sub-optimal operations and network economics."Parking bays and runway slots will become increasingly scarce over the next few years, especially at metro airports. Signs of congestion are already emerging at Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi and the situation will become more acute unless airports are able to construct 400 parking bays and enhance airside capacity within five years. Otherwise airlines will face challenges in implementing their base and network plans, " the report said.In March, India became the third-largest domestic aviation market in the world, beating Japan. India's domestic air passenger traffic stood at 100 million in 2016 and was behind only the US (719 million) and China (436 million). In contrast, though, is the poor infrastructure growth. In the year ended March 31, 2017, Mumbai airport beat London's Gatwick to become the world's busiest airport with a single runway.The other concern comes from safety risks the growth would bring about. "The projected industry growth rates will heighten safety risks due to the regulator being overstretched. Institutional strengthening of the DGCA is a national interest issue. If unaddressed, another downgrade by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration, US's civil aviation regulator) cannot be ruled out. India's regulator, the DGCA, will struggle to provide adequate regulatory oversight for the projected size of the market, " said the report, adding that the DGCA is already under-resourced and short of expertise to meet current requirements, let alone future growth."The increase in airprox incidents (when two aircraft are within 30 seconds of colliding with each other) in the last 12 months is a concern. In addition, it will be stretched by the entry of new operators and equipment as a result of the launch of the Regional Connectivity Scheme. If oversight capabilities are left unaddressed, another FAA downgrade to Category 2 is not out of the question, " it warned.For airlines, the way ahead is turbulent, with pilot poaching set to become a serious challenge. The DGCA is likely to increase the notice period for pilots to exit from six to 12 months. The report zeroed in on low-cost carrier IndiGo, stating that the airline's insatiable demand for crew to support its rapidly expanding fleet, and its strong financial reserves which allow it to fund a hold pool of pilots, has it leading the way in poaching crew.Times of India Edition.02/06/2017www.soaneemrana.orgTel: 88002287020

The arrival of new aircraft can offer Job opportunity in branch of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering, B.Tech Aeronautical, and Cabin Crews, like the following new tells:SPICEJET MAY ORDER BOEING 737 MAX-10S AT THEIR PARIS LAUNCH MUMBAI: Low fare carrier SpiceJetBSE 2.51 % is likely to place an order for the Boeing 737 Max 10 planes at the aircraft's debut at the Paris Air Show later this month, thus becoming one of its launch customers globally. The Max 10 is the latest, longest version of the narrowbodied Boeing 737 Max series of planes, competitors to Airbus'A320 family. The 180-seater aircraft type is the most popular airliner in the world. The 737 Max 10 is a direct competitor to the Airbus A321neo, which SpiceJet's rival and A320 flier IndiGo is expected to upgrade to at a later date. Apart from SpiceJet, Irish low fare carrier Ryanair and Indonesia's Lion Air are said to be planning orders of the planes.Full service carrier Jet Airways has also been said to be mulling a purchase. When asked, a senior executive at Jet didn't confirm the same. The aircraft are slated to be pressed into commercial service in two and half years. "We are in discussions with Boeing for the Max 10s, " SpiceJet chairman Ajay Singh told ET in an interview. A person close to the development pegged SpiceJet's order number at below 50. Singh, when asked, didn't elaborate. The orders would be part of SpiceJet's expansion plans following a miraculous turnaround led by Singh last year, after the airline was almost on the brink of a shutdown. Since then, SpiceJet has paid back partly its debts, massively improved its operating performance, and returned to profitability also helped by a fall in fuel prices. The airline now has a market cap (Rs 7, 286 crore as of Wednesday closing on the Bombay Stock Exchange) which is higher than that of bigger rival Jet Airways (Rs 6, 054 crore end Wednesday). SpiceJet currently has firm orders of 155 Boeing Max 8 and 9 planes with an option for 50 more. This includes a fresh order of 100 planes placed in January this year. Singh had in a previous interview said the airline will likely look at converting some of the options to the widebodied Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes. He had also said the airline may look at starting flights to Europe. On Wednesday, Singh said while he still sees potential in bigger planes and long haul flights, there is no timeline or firm decision on that aspect yet. SpiceJet, like rival IndiGo is however a serious participant in the Narendra Modi government's regional connectivity scheme. The airline on Monday announced the launch of two flights from July 10 under the UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) scheme. The two flights will connect Mumbai to Porbandar and Kandla in Gujarat, the airline said in a release. SpiceJet, which is the only airline which hasn’t sought subsidy or viability gap funding under this scheme, was awarded six proposals and eleven routes under the first phase of the scheme. Out of the six proposals, four will cater to unserved markets of Adampur, Kandla, Puducherry and Jaisalmer whereas two will be for Porbandar and Kanpur. The new aircraft will only come to SpiceJet starting 2018. Singh said that in between, the airline may lease 7-8 Boeing planes and 3-4 Bombardier Q400s. It operates 364 daily flights to 46 local and overseas destinations with a fleet of 33 Boeing 737NG (Next Generation) planes and 19 Q-400s. Also yesterday, SpiceJet launched its retail arm SpiceStyle, an e-commerce portal which offers 11 fashion and lifestyle brands under its portfolio. Together with the logistics business launched last year, the airline's non-core businesses have led to a spurt in its ancillary revenue. From being a 5-6% chunk of its total turnover 2-3 years back, it now accounts for 15-16% and will go further up to 18-19% by the end of this year, Singh said. He did not rule out the possibility of having the businesses off into separate entities but said SpiceJet doesn't need the funds now to seek a stake-buyer, either in itself or its subsidiaries.
