  • Airbus runs mechanical tests for A350 on "iron bird"
    Airbus is relying on an "iron bird" to test for issues with its A350 models. The iron bird is a hull of a plane that allows for mechanical tests of the aircraft, instead of relying solely on computer models. "We're good at analyzing things like the aerodynamics of structures, but when you get to very complicated systems it's hard for computers to predict the interactions ahead of time," said R. John Hansman, professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bloomberg Businessweek (3/14) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • A4A supports flexibility to deal with sequester
    Airlines for America supports an amendment by Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., to help federal agencies minimize the effect of sequestration on air travel by deciding which employees are essential. "A4A expects and urges federal agencies, including CBP, TSA and the FAA to minimize sequestration's impact on airlines and our customers, and we strongly support Sen. Blunt's amendment, which provides additional flexibility for federal officials to effectively manage and maintain essential public services while meeting the requirements of the sequester," said Nicholas Calio, A4A's president and CEO.
