Luc Masse became familiar with aerospace from his time in Cold Lake and aviation discussions with his father who served in the Canadian Armed Forces as an electrical engineer. At the time, Masse could not have imaged aerospace would become his world for more than 30 years.
At first glance it still looks like a duck out of water; an Air Canada Boeing 737 MAX navigating the tarmac at London’s Heathrow Airport alongside the larger birds of the world’s biggest trans-Atlantic airlines, including Air Canada’s own seven-eights and triple-sevens. An odd site, perhaps, but an increasingly common one. Since taking delivery of its first 737 MAX 8, Air Canada has planted the airplane on north-Atlantic routes between Toronto, Montréal and Ireland, and Halifax, St. John’s and London.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) today released its investigation report on a collision between two flying school aircraft that occurred over St-Bruno-de-Montarville, Quebec, in March 2017. The investigation determined that both pilots, who were flying solo under visual flight rules in controlled airspace, had deviated from the altitude restrictions provided by air traffic control before colliding in mid-air.
Boeing will build the U.S. Navy’s first operational carrier-based unmanned aircraft, the MQ-25 Stingray aerial refueler, through an US$805 million ($1.1 billion) contract. Boeing was awarded the engineering and manufacturing development contract to provide four aircraft. It plans to perform the MQ-25 work in St. Louis.
Airbus’ Perlan Mission II, which the company describes as the world’s first initiative to pilot an engineless aircraft to the edge of space, is in the process of making history in El Calafate, Argentina. Leveraging what the team describes as stratospheric mountain waves, rare air currents that develop in just a few places on earth for a short period of time each year, the pressurized Perlan 2 glider on August 26 set a record by soaring to a pressure altitude of more than 62,000 feet (60,669 feet GPS altitude).
From an engineering standpoint, Boeing explains its new 737 MAX 10 airplane will be a straightforward stretch of the MAX 9, which entered service in 2018. More than 95 per cent of the design and 90 per cent of the build of the MAX 10 will be identical to previous models. The primary difference in the MAX 10 compared to other models, explains Boeing, is in the new, levered design of the main landing gear.
