gurus gogo 2ku connected with Alaskan airlines

Alaskan Airlines has been able to come to an agreement with satellite connectivity company Gogo for new innovations. Going forth, Gogo is to renovate Alaskan Airlines fleet with 2ku satellite-based Ku-band in-flight connectivity technology.

The following renovations are to take place the current and following year. Participants in the renovations are Alaskans’ Boeing and Airbus aircrafts.

The transformation of the Alaskan Airlines fleet will begin during the first 6 months of the year 2018. The aircraft that has been chosen to start with the integrations has been the Boeing 737 aircraft.

With Gogo facilities working countless hours they have estimated to complete 40 to 50 aircrafts with a full integration of equipment by the end of the 2018. Only a couple of Alaskan aircrafts as Alaskan Air group has recently added aircrafts to its fleet. In the year 2016 Alaskan invested 2.6 billion dollars back into their own company to be able to obtain the entire Virgin America fleets.

Per Chief commercial officer at Alaskan Airlines, Andrew Harrison assures that Gogo is the right fit for their company and will have a significant impact to their aircrafts.

We conducted an extensive review to find a satellite Wi-Fi solution that has a proven track record with commercial airlines and will meet our guest's expectations for what they want to do in the air today, but will also continue to meet their needs in the future,

Alaskans main concern for these latest integrations is to be able to allow their customers to experience a better connectivity in air as they would on the ground. Alaska also offers a free messaging network courtesy of their previous addition Virgin America. The Alaska free messaging system already allows people to use to use certain applications such as whatsAPP, imessage , facebook messenger and more to be used at an altitude of 35000.

Vector Aerospace

Vector Aerospace is an industry leader provider in aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul. They have nearly 2,200 people in 22 locations across the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Australia, South Australia, Kenya and Singapore. Their customer line includes regional airlines, corporate flight department, government agencies and defense departments. On the other hand, its partner Robertson Fuel Systems has been preventing post-incident fires in aircraft and ground vehicles since 1976. They have helped grow the local economy by supplying hundreds of jobs in aerospace, engineering and manufacturing. Therefore, these two companies together have completed the first test flights for crash-resistant fuel tank (CRFT) designed for the Airbus AS350 light single helicopter family.

The test’s purpose was to help to reconstruct CRFT to obtain the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications and to follow an FAA-certified 50ft drop test that proved the tank’s qualifications to combat impact without any outflow, helping to prevent post-crash fires.

Vector Aerospace CRFT programme manager Jeff Booker said: “This milestone is a testament to the team here at Vector, which has been working hard to bring this product to market for our customers. As soon as the drop testing was complete we began the process of installation to move us into this new test phase.”

Two flight test aircrafts, AS350 B2 and AS350 B3 have already been equipped with the new CRFT and they are experiencing ground- testing activities.

Moreover, Onboard Systems is Vector’s new partner in incorporating cargo swing solutions as a adaptable option that can be used with the new crash-resistant fuel tank.

boeing p-8 poseidon aircraft.

A new contract has been announced by Boeing this month. It comes in light of the movement to modernize maritime patrol capabilities by the US Navy, the Australian Air Force, and the United Kingdom Royal Air Force. Boeing is planning on enabling this by way of a $2.2 billion contract for at least 17 new P-8A Poseidon aircraft.

The contract also leaves room for 32 additional aircraft, as well as money for future orders. It is expected the total contract value will reach $6.8 billion. Two keys of a successful program are production stability and pricing, which Boeing and the Navy are hoping to achieve with this contract.

To start out the new additions, the Navy will expand by eleven aircraft, Australia will receive four new P-8A Poseidon aircraft, and the UK Royal Airforce will start with two P-8A jets expected by the beginning of the year 2019. So far, Boeing has delivered fifty-three Poseidon aircraft to the Navy and a total of two to the Royal Australian Airforce.

The P-8A Poseidon has the world’s most advanced anti-submarine, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. The Indian Navy has a few variants of this same aircraft in operation. It is called the P-8I. After delivery of four additional aircraft, their fleet will total twelve.

“Jamie Burgess, vice president of Boeing Military Aircraft’s Mobility, Surveillance & Engagement division and P-8 program manager says, The P-8A is a textbook example of Boeing’s commercial derivative expertise.

Spanish Eurofighters red Flag

Just outside of Las Vegas is one of the U.S. military’s most important bases, Nellis Air Force Base. Some of the most advanced combat training programs are conducted there. One of these is Exercise Red Flag 17-2. It is the largest, most comprehensive and realistic training exercises. The Spanish Air Force Eurofighters are currently participating in this training exercise.

Among the Eurofighters included in this program, Spain has delivered 17 of 19 Tranche 1 airframes and 33 of 34 Tranche 2 airframes participating in the training. They are also anticipating on providing 21 Tranche 3 Eurofighters in addition to that. Due to some budget limitation Spain encountered with expansion, they were not able to acquire the 87 Eurofighters they initially wanted to.

The Spanish Airforce has played a significant role in helping partner nations improve their air-to-ground capacity. While they originally made the primary function of their Eurofighters to function as air-to-air fighters, they decided to make a shift and incorporate this additional capability.

Exercises like this are made possible by ASAP NSN Parts. ASAP NSN Parts delivers all avionic and aerospace parts for military training and any aviation procurement around the world. ASAP NSN Parts is the premier supplier.
