Boeing 737 Max

Leasing has become an option for major aviation industry companies in order to save their resources for other important tasks. Being more cost efficient from having to hire an entire maintance team for the aircrafts. Being removed of these types of responsibility allows for the purchasing company on more of the key components of their airlines and result in better custom approval.

Boeing has worked closely with ALC previously and will only increase the number of ALCs Boeing aircrafts fleet.

The recent order consists of 5 737 MAX 7 aircrafts along with seven 737 MAX 8 planes.

ALC has also decide to add two new 787-9 Dreamliner’s to their fleet to be able to give their customers an optimal flight along with very cost-efficient options.

CEO of ALC is very pleased with their recent additions to their company and the continuous possibilities that it will bring to them, "These additional orders reflect ALC's highly successful placements to date of our MAX and 787 order books, and the need to fulfil the incremental demand we are experiencing for these aircraft across both existing and new customers for ALC.”

Boeing is also very eager to be able to provide ALC with their latest aircraft technology in the Boeing 737 MAX family. The 737 MAX has been integrated with the newest engine technology, the LEAP-1B engines. The LEAP 1B engines have been created for a more fuel-efficient flight that benefits both parties.

Along with orders from BOEING, ALC has also been able to purchase a different set of 1B engines from the aerospace company CFM International. The 1B engines will be applied to 12 of the newly purchased Boeing MAX aircrafts. The entire order is estimated to be worth an approximate 348 million US dollars.

US Air Force

The US Air Force is one of the US’ most esteemed military organizations that require the most advanced and innovative technology for aerial surveillance. Along with surveillance and fighter aircrafts, the Air Force is equipped the best equipment there is to be found on the market.

Officials from the Management Center at Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Fairborn, Ohio have stated that they have come to an understanding with Raytheon Space and its Airborne Systems segment. Both entities have agreed upon the modification of the Enhanced Integrated Sensor Suite (EISS). Along with the modification of the (EISS) , Raytheon will be given the opportunity to modify the Enhanced Electro Optical Receiver unit (EERU ) Retrofit. The Air Force has agreed on a 25.9 million dollar contract for these modifications but is planning to spend a total of 3.2 billion for Global Hawk avionics upgrades over the 10 years.

The (EISS) is what allows for the Block 30 Global Hawk to have pin point surveillance with their aircraft sensor parts. . It can be used from 60,000 ft of altitude with night vision capabilities. Many components make up the EISS such as: the Synthetic aperture radar (SAR), ground moving target indicator (GMTI) , a high resolution electro-optical (EO) , digital camera and Infrared sensor (IR ). All of these components are joined together with a compatible signal processor that works as an airborne computer. One of the most important internal components that the EISS is made up of is the EERU.

The EERU is one of the internal modular components that can be easily replaced within the EISS. With the replacement of the EERU there must be other components to be replaced us as the Enhanced Sensor Electronics Unit (ESEU) and the Enhanced Integrated Sensor Processor ( EISP).

The EISS works with maximum precision which allows it to detect items immediately and efficiently. These capabilities that the EISS has, enables for the Air Force to send operators to a location for missions and surveillance.

CFM56 Aircraft Engine

Established in 2005 with headquarters in Paris, Safran is a French multinational aircraft and rocket, engine, aerospace-component and security company. Working world-wide, Safran has just about 58,000 employees and logged sales on 18.6 billion dollars in 2016. It is a partner in the CFM point venture which builds the CFM56 for the Airbus A320 and Boeing Airplane 737 Max, as well as he Leap for the A320new, 737 Max and Comac C919.

Safran turned over 147 The CFM International Leap engines during the first half, but the figure has yet to depart the drop in CFM56 deliveries. The specialist’s statistics show that it provided 81 engines in the first quarter but only 66 in the following one.

In fact, it expanded CFM56 production, supplying 365 engines in the second quarter opposed to 345 in the first. The total was 710, whereas last year it was greater with 176.

The output of leap engines are increasing. The company has order for nearly 13,100 leap powerplants including more than 1,000 registered in June at Paris air show. "Demand for the engine ensures that the production ramp down will be more gradual than expected," says Safran. However, the decrease in CFM56 production, let to a collapse in the original equipment profit for the company’s civil engines operations.

The decreasing in CFM56 production and the negative margin of leap engine output and distribution affected the propulsion margin. In spite of increasing, the civil aftermarket performance did not entirely counterbalance the impact.

Inlet Barrier Filter

In 1915, in order to secure a customer’s farm tractor engine, Frank Donaldson developed the first effective air cleaner. Since then, they have been solving customers’ filtration challenges becoming a technology leader in the aviation industry. Donaldson Aerospace and defense which is a division of Donaldson company announced it on 1st August about transport Canada had certified its IBF (Inlet Barrier Filters) to Airbus. It will be used for installation process within Airbus helicopters AS350 B3, EC130T2 and EC130 B4.

“This important Transport Canada certification gives individual and mixed fleet operators the ability to equip their helicopters with the best engine protection available,” said AFS Business Development Director Robert Stenberg. “AFS AS350/EC130 IBF-equipped aircraft can also operate to the basic inlet performance charts thanks to no inlet driven flight or gross weight restrictions, and pilots have the option to use the sand filter performance charts when required.”

Inlet Barrier Filtration Kit removes more than 99% airborne dirt and sand that create damage with helicopter engines, while providing intensified engine performance over the whole flight envelope when compared to standard particle separators. Along with required performance developments on many platforms, barrier filter technology applied to turbine engine inlets has the prospective to produce substantial return on investment for operators. With minimal airframe modification, the engine runs cooler and the aircraft flies higher. Filtration kits are easy to maintain and replace and are more cost-effective than replacing a single damaged engine component. Other benefits of the Inlet Barrier Filter System are less inspections and exchanges of engine parts due to erosion and completely covered installation under the transmission cowling.
