Bombardier has announced that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) for up to 18 Global 6500 and Global 7500 business jets with HK Bellawings Jet Limited, a leading aircraft management company based in Hong Kong.

Textron Aviation has updated the development status of its new high-performance Cessna Denali single-engine turboprop during the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) 2018. Fabrication of the nose section, fuselage, wings and tail cone of the first three flying prototypes is underway, paving the way for the aircraft to enter the market with best-in-class performance.
Pilatus engineers recently developed and certified a new PC-12 Master Maintenance Plan to give greater flexibility with regard to the timing of required inspections and maintenance. The plan applies to all PC-12 Series, and will reduce required maintenance labour by 20-40 per cent.
At the beginning of EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland, Bombardier Business Aircraft unveiled two additions to its business jet fleet: the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft, with ranges of 5,700 and 6,600 nautical miles, respectively, and top speeds of Mach 0.90. The aircraft, which feature a newly optimized wing and an all-new Rolls-Royce engine, are expected to enter service at the end of 2019.
