In January of 2015, the US Navy announced that the MV-22 Osprey will replace the C-2A Greyhound as the force’s primary aircraft for carrier on board delivery (COD) missions. The Navy currently has a fleet of 35 Greyhound turboprops. Manufactured by Northrop Grumman, the aging C-2As were first introduced in 1966 with the Navy’s newest C-2As dating back to the 1990s. As a derivative of the company’s airborne early warning E-2 Hawkeye aircraft, the Greyhound was fitted with a widened fuselage and rear door for cargo loading. On January 5, 2015 in a memo signed by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jon Greenert, and Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Joseph Dunford, the US Navy decided to replace the Greyhounds rather than upgrade them with new wings, a new cockpit, and a new engine system as was previously planned.

The Pilatus PC-12 turboprop has been highly successful since its initial certification back in 1994. The aircraft designed and manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft, boasts extreme flexibility, utility, and versatility. The cabin can be filled with passengers or cargo at high fuel-efficiency. With the rising cost of fuel, the benefit of having a single power plant instead of two makes this aircraft very desirable. Pilatus has had over 200 orders for the latest model of this aircraft. The PC-12 really has no real direct competition. Its closest competitor is the Beech King Air B200, which has two PT-6 engines instead of one. With that being said, the PC-12 is really in a niche all on its own. It is very unique in having a fast, pressurized short/rough field, single-engine turboprop.

Textron, an industrial conglomerate that includes big-name aerospace companies such as Bell Helicopter and Cessna Aircraft, has also recently agreed to acquire Beechcraft as of December 26, 2013, in a deal valued at $1.4 billion. This sale, which was concluded in the beginning of 2014, also includes the discontinued Hawker jet product line. Textron has quieted critics that proclaimed the company the already too far in debt to acquire the Beechcraft business, which had over $3 billion in debt alone. This would bring Textron’s debt load past $4.4 billion, in addition to the $1.1 billion in loans that would be required to finance the sale.Although this does seem like bad news for shareholders, the acquisition is already looking like it will pay pidends in the long run. Beechcraft was just awarded a $127 million contract to the New Zealand Ministry of Defence in which it will supply 11 T-6C turboprop trainer aircraft as well as ground simulators, with delivery scheduled for 2016.
