We talk about the prospect of a production rate hike at AirInsight this morning.
- Here’s a story from Flight Global taking a detailed, focused look at the Pratt & Whitney P1000G Geared Turbo Fan, which will power the Bombardier CSeries, Irkut MC-21 and Mitsubishi MRJ; and will likely be chosen by Airbus to power the A320 family New Engine Option.
- Speaking of the A320 NEO, look for an announcement on September 30 or shortly thereafter giving the green light for this program.
- Embraer is also considering whether to reengine its E-Jet series with the GTF.
- Flight International has this detailed report on the Bombardier CSeries to be the first airplane to have telemetry for the black box flight data recorder.
