J VanDomelen The mil/aero community, especially those members working in the aviation and avionics segment, is increasingly consumed with learning more and ensuring compliance with current standards and regulations.

J VanDomelen The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is arguably one of the most anticipated commercial aircraft releases in many years. With the 787-8 boasting carrying capacities of 210 to 250 passengers with ranges of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles and the 787-9 capable of toting 250 to 290 passengers on routes of 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles, the Boeing 787 certainly presents many benefits to the end user, especially in the … Read More
