    The African Refiners and Distributors Association (ARA), together with the Egyptian General Petroleum Company, will in mid-June host an interactive workshop on the impact of the International Maritime Organisation’s changes to regulation around the sulphur content of ship bunker fuel across Africa from January 2020.

    ARA executive secretary Jol Dervain explained in a statement that the changes to the regulations are the most significant changes in the refining, shipping and ship bunkering industries in decades, adding that the ARA, with its partners, will discuss the practical implications across the complete bunkering supply chain from crude oil through to refining and the logistics chain.

    Boeing reports ‘clear and steady progress’ on returning 737 MAX to safe operations

    Giant US aerospace and defence group Boeing announced on Thursday night (South African time) that it had concluded the development of updated software for its 737 MAX single-aisle airliner type, as well as the associated simulator testing and engineering flight test. The updated software is for the 737 MAX’s Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS).

    The MCAS has been implicated in two 737 MAX crashes in just five months, that killed a total of 346 people. Boeing reported that it has, to date, flown the 737 MAX with the updated MCAS software on 207 flights totalling more than 360 hours.

    The company added that it was providing further information to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which the regulator has requested. This includes information on the interaction between pilots and the flight controls and displays in various flight scenarios. Once this has been done, Boeing will cooperate with the FAA to schedule the certification test flight and present its documentation for final certification.

    17-year-old pilot’s Cape-to-Cairo project to inspire other teenagers

    An ambitious project to stimulate interest among high school pupils in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in general, and in aviation in particular, has reached an advanced stage of development. It is the “U-Dream Cape 2 Cairo” project, which involves some 20 teenagers in the assembly of a kit-build aircraft and then flying it from Cape Town to Cairo via 15 stops in other African countries. The originator of the project, Megan Werner, is herself only 17 and the only member of the group who was a pilot before the project was launched.
