Wednesday, September 2, 2015

SEATTLE - Following its August 25 777-9 firm-configuration milestone, Boeing is preparing to test a prototype version of a deployable wingtip feature as part of its 777X series. The wingtip will increase the overall span of the aircraft by 24 ft. for flight, thus optimizing lift distribution towards cruise efficiency targets. When retracted it will make the aircraft compatible with taxiway and gateway size restrictions.

Of the 306 777X aircraft Boeing has on order, Emirates has the lion's share with 150. Qatar Airways has 60 aircraft on order, followed by Etihad Airways (25), Cathay Pacific Airways (21), All Nippon Airways (20), Lufthansa (20) and unidentified customers (10).

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp and its parent firm Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd have announced that the first flight of the new Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) will take place in the second half of October 2015. The flight is to last for approximately one hour, and will take place at Nagoya Airport in Japan and its surrounding airspace.

The companies said that the specific week scheduled for the first flight will be disclosed by the end of September, and the exact date of the flight will be announced one day before the event.

The MRJ is envisioned as a family of regional jetliners. Two basic models are currently planned: the 78-passenger MRJ70 and the 92-passenger MRJ90. Extended-range and long-range versions of each basic model are also planned. The MRJ family is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1200G geared turbofan engines.

The MRJ90 is the lead variant in the series. Mitsubishi rolled out the initial MRJ90 in October 2014.

Mitsubishi has garnered 223 firm orders, 160 options, and 24 purchase rights for the MRJ. The majority of these commitments are for the MRJ90.
