AvTalk Episode 114: Shootin’ the Breeze

On this episode of AvTalk, we try to fit in as many Breeze Airways puns as we can as Jason fills us in on the airline’s inaugural flight. We also take stock of the situation in Belarus and see where things stand now. Plus, Airbus is getting ready to ramp up A320 family production in a big way.

Jason puts wind in his sails on the Breeze inaugural

Jason took the inaugural Breeze Airways flight and it carried him aloft, but it didn’t sweep him off his feet.

Update on the situation in Belarus

We discuss the current status of the situation in Belarus, which airlines have changed routes, and how Belavia, the Belarusian airline is adapting to increased restrictions on where it can fly.

Boeing meets the FAA

Boeing has halted deliveries of the 787 again. It has also reached a settlement with the FAA and agreed to pay a $17 million fine related to unapproved sensors on the 737NG and 737 MAX and possibly non-conforming slat tracks on the 737 MAX. We dig into both issues.

Airbus’ assembly lines getting ready to pick up speed

Airbus is preparing its suppliers for a big jump in the number of A320 family aircraft it produces every month over the next 4 years.

Sure seems like things are improving

We look at some of the positive steps and data points we’ve seen this week that makes us think we’re moving in the right direction.

The winglet thingy

HiFly is preparing to test a wing-tip device designed by The Aircraft Performance Company on one of its A330s that is intended to reduce fuel consumption beyond a standard winglet. We’ll let you see for yourselves.
