J VanDomelen The aerospace industry was born more than 100 years ago, when the internal combustion engine was joined to the balloon and the glider, reads a NASA Web page. “America’s contribution to it is vast, ranging from the first airplane and the first modern rocket to the latest in avionics.” Is the U.S. the losing its status on the world stage as a leader in aerospace innovation? On the state level, officials … Read More

When the Space Shuttle retires as scheduled in June, NASA will be dependent on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft to ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS). Based on a recent $753 million contract NASA awarded to the Russian Federal Space Agency, these outsourced services cost U.S. taxpayers roughly $63 million per seat. It’s doubtless a hefty price tag, but NASA lacks U.S.-based

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. For many, regulatory compliance and all that it entails are terribly stressful and wrought with bureaucracy, various “hoops” through which to jump, and threats of excessive fines and jail time. Not surprisingly, … Read More

J VanDomelen In February of this year, at the Singapore Air Show, Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (Comac) unveiled a commercial aircraft designed and built entirely in China: the Comac C919 twin-jet airliner—considered by many to be a serious threat to the Boeing 737. A Chinese-built version of the Airbus A320 was introduced last year. Comac and other Chinese aircraft manufacturers rely on foreign-made engines … Read More

J VanDomelen China has set its sights on the aerospace industry, and it is advancing rapidly toward its goal…of market dominance. China may be poised to take the aerospace industry by storm; the country is working (rapidly and diligently, I might add) to compete with, and perhaps overtake, longtime market leaders The Boeing Company and Airbus. “It’s the largest market outside the U.S. for commercial airplanes, … Read More

J VanDomelen The Boeing Company completed its sixth and final test flight of the controversial new 787 jetliner yesterday, Sunday, 17 October 2010. According to flightaware.com, the 787 flew roundtrip from Boeing Field in Seattle to Moses Lake, Wa., and took approximately two and a half hours to complete the mission. This event was one and a half hours longer than the last flight of the 787 (specifically the ZA006) … Read More

J VanDomelen Part 1 explored Boeing and Space Adventures’ new memorandum outlining a partnership to further increase the growing industry of commercial space flight. Part 2 aims to answer some pressing questions: What is Space Adventures’ background? Who is funding the effort? When is the Boeing Crew Space Transport-100 (CST-100) scheduled to be completed? And who are the players involved in this competitive game … Read More

J VanDomelen With NASA’s Space Shuttle program coming to an end, the private space transportation industry is heating up. Many players are making plans to provide out-of-this-world service in the not too distant future. As I have discussed in previous blogs, a growing number of companies (such as SpaceX and Scaled Composites) and private incentive programs (such as Ansari X Prize) have been encouraging the privately … Read More

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

J VanDomelen After going to the Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour I received a CD that had some interesting facts about the largest building in the world. Here I present 10 of them: Largest Building on Earth? True. Guinness World Records list the Boeing Everett factory as the largest building in the world by volume at 472,000000 cubic feet (13.3 million cubic meters). Boeing Factory employees … Read More

J VanDomelen Were you aware that the largest building in the entire world (by volume) is dedicated to aviation innovation? I recently had the opportunity to visit Mukilteo, Washington, home of the biggest building in the world by volume. Sandy Ward, marketing director of the Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour (www.futureofflight.org) graciously provided a personal tour of the museum following a fascinating … Read More
