    Nasa outlines the developments to watch in civil aeronautics

    The global aviation industry continues to be a rapidly growing sector, far from reaching maturity. This was stressed at the recent International Forum for Aviation Research (IFAR) open session at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) International Convention Centre (ICC) in Pretoria by US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) Associate Administrator for Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate Dr Jaiwon Shin. “Aviation is not a dying industry; it is not a mature industry. It is growing in leaps and bounds,” he affirmed. “This is because countries are getting richer. In a lot of developing countries aviation demand is growing significantly.”

    South African regional airline places order for two new airliners

    Privately-owned South African scheduled and non-scheduled domestic and international operations airline CemAir has concluded a $66-million deal with Canadian company Bombardier Aerospace for two new twin turboprop Q400 regional airliners. This follows on from a Letter of Intent signed between the two enterprises in June at the Paris Air Show. CemAir has also leased a used Q400, that was delivered earlier this month.

    “CemAir has enjoyed significant growth in the last few years and this has come from our focused approach on selecting the right aircraft for our operation,” explained airline CEO Miles van der Molen. “The Q400 is a fantastic performer especially in our environment of high altitudes and hot operating temperatures. It is really an unbeatable turboprop that brings so many jet-like features to ensure a competitive and operational advantage in our market.”

    “We see the Q400 as the ideal growth solution for our scheduled and charter operations as we continue to strengthen our relationship with Bombardier,” he added. “We are working to expand our scheduled operations beyond South Africa and continuing to support new opportunities across the continent.”
