J VanDomelen Aerospace is a robust and growing market, with civil aviation leading the charge. Industry pundits anticipate increased, and even potentially record, growth in commercial aviation—while military aviation is largely stagnant and general aviation, including business jets (bizjets), starting to emerge from a period of stagnation. What’s happening in the bizjet community? Something that hasn’t been … Read More

J VanDomelen Civil aviation is hot, and it is only getting hotter. As the middle class continues to grow in emerging markets, including nations such as China and India, more people and more goods than ever before are flying. Growth in passenger and cargo transport is driving demand for new aircraft, and airframe manufacturers such as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, and others are actively filling … Read More

J VanDomelen The civil aerospace market is alive and well, as evidenced by myriad aircraft orders and business agreements announced during the Dubai Airshow in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) this week. Richard L. Aboulafia, vice president of analysis at Teal Group in Fairfax, Va., forecasts the worldwide aircraft market to contribute roughly $4 trillion to the world economy over 10 years (through 2022), with … Read More

J VanDomelen Much of the aerospace community has been silently watching the series of unfortunate events surrounding the Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airplane this year—from fuel leaks to fires, which resulted in the grounding of the entire global fleet of roughly 50 Dreamliner aircraft. Airbus, Boeing’s biggest competitor, is often a very vocal opponent. In fact, Airbus criticized Boeing for accepting considerable … Read More

J VanDomelen Are U.S. avionics and aircraft risk assessment and certification processes flawed? The defects now evident in Boeing Dreamliner 787 commercial airliners are causing the public and safety professionals to question the efficacy of current methods. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) officials investigating the cause of a short circuit in a Boeing Dreamliner 787 lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery are … Read More

J VanDomelen Airbus and The Boeing Company might appear to have little in common, but they certainly share a fascinating, and even intertwined, history. Both aviation firms are pioneers, having contributed numerous innovations in the field throughout the years. As technology advancements, new aircraft models, and litigations continue in the years that follow, so too does the competition between the two airframe … Read More

J VanDomelen Airbus delayed the availability of the A350-1000, intended to compete with The Boeing Company’s enhanced 777 twinjet; yet, customers continue to cancel early orders for the upcoming Airbus wide-body jet. This delay is giving Boeing the chance it needs to push its 777 successor (being called the Boeing 777X) forward, while utilizing all the lessons learned from its infamously delayed 787 Dreamliner. … Read More

J VanDomelen “The delays are not caused by bungling or production glitches,” EADS CEO Louis Gallois is quoted as saying at the 2011 International Paris-Le Bourget Air Show (http://www.paris-air-show.com/). “The A350 is the best-managed program at Airbus by far and the program is under control. This is not about delays but about improvements in the program.” Airbus executives decided to delay by one year the new … Read More

30 May, 2012

J VanDomelen Airbus and The Boeing Company have been the subjects of much criticism when it comes to production delays. While one company works to rationalize a delay in entering new aircraft into service, the rival often uses the other’s delay to its own advantage; in both cases, the public is often entertained by the sometimes creative “spins” on an unfortunate happenstance. In mid-2011, Airbus executives reluctantly … Read More

J VanDomelen Airbus aircraft, in stark contrast to some Boeing airliners, are largely manufactured in Europe. The company’s origin as a consortium of European aerospace companies no doubt is a contributing factor; yet, the company is not entirely immune to outsourcing. In fact, Airbus opened a plant in China, one of the fastest-growing consumers of air travel, in 2009. The name “Airbus”, interestingly enough, was … Read More

J VanDomelen The Boeing 747 was the pinnacle of success in aviation. The jumbo jet became the symbol for aviation and opened up the world to global travelers. Boeing was reaping the rewards and reveling in the success that was the 747. Airbus wasn’t resting on its laurels, however, and had set its sights on the popular jet. In 1988, Airbus lead engineer Jean Roeder and a team of engineers began to develop … Read More

J VanDomelen Airbus and Boeing have held a duopoly on the worldwide large commercial aircraft (LCA) market, which includes narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, and jumbo jets, since the 1990s. Both companies have effectively used outsourcing, government loans/contract/subsidies, technology, currency, tax breaks, and even the selection of engine manufacturers to gain a competitive advantage. Many of the world’s … Read More

J VanDomelen The rivalry between large civil aircraft (LCA) manufacturers Airbus in Toulouse, France, and The Boeing Company in Seattle, Washington, spans three decades—only now, though, is it getting particularly heated (and even ugly). The latest conflict centers on the legality of government subsidies and loans enjoyed by both parties. On 12 March 2012, the World Trade Organization (WTO) Appellate Body released … Read More
