General Electric's aviation unit and its joint-venture partner Safran of France on Monday said they are developing new airplane engines that aim to cut emissions by more than a fifth of today's levels. GE Aviation and France's Safran together produce some of the most commonly used aircraft engines under their CFM joint venture. Together they launched a new program, called CFM Rise, that will develop and test new technology that could enter service in the mid-2030s, the companies said. GE and Safran's CFM joint venture makes engines for the Boeing 737 Max and also for the Airbus A320neo family. The companies plan to design an engine that is open fan, which is unlike the covered jet-engines on commercial aircraft.

Footage released earlier this year offered more hints about China's new Xian H-20 stealth bomber. Earlier this year, the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) shared video footage that may have included some "teaser" footage of its still-to-be officially unveiled Xian H-20 stealth bomber. The four computer-generated images seemed to show key features of the Xian H-20 including a weapon bay, two adjustable tail wings, an airborne radar at the front and two stealth air intakes on each side. What we knowA B-2 stealth bomber refueling. In the simulated video, a PLAAF H-6 bomber was seen, but perhaps future simulated attack videos could include the H-20.

Russia's Su-57 is one of only four operational 5th-generation fighters in the world. Russia's Su-57 is widely seen as the least stealthy of the 5th-generation entrants, but there's more to a fighter jet than radar cross-sections. Real development on the modern fighter program began once again in earnest in 2002, with America's F-22 set squarely in the program's sights. Instead, they're just trying to make the Su-57 a sneaky and capable fighter with bombing capabilities … and in that regard, they seem to be succeeding. The Su-57 may not lead the pack in the realm of stealth fighters, but it doesn't need to in order to pose a threat.

Boeing's latest challenge: China
  + stars: | 2021-06-08 | by ( Chris Isidore | Cnn Business | ) edition.cnn.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
China is by far the largest and most important market for aircraft purchases. But in an age of US-Chinese trade tensions only 1% of Boeing's orders since 2017 have been reported as goingdirectly to Chinese buyers. Aircraft deliveries to China, which happen years after plane orders are placed,are stronger, accounting for nearly 20% of Boeing's total since 2017. But China is still one of three major global markets where the 737 Max has yet to get clearance to fly from aviation regulators. And although he said he was pleased by the progress clearing the other two peaks, he admitted China remains a challenge.

The photograph of an aircraft with an “angel-like” flare formation circulating on social media does not show a U.S. aircraft used to honor fallen servicemembers, as the post’s caption claims. One post with over 5,000 shares can be seen here and its caption reads, “THIS IS THE PLANE THAT BRINGS OUR DEAD MILITARY HOME. The plane in the photograph, however, has stabilizers (small side wings) at the top of the rudder. FLARESThe post’s claim that the flares in the photo create an angel-like figure to honor the fallen is also false. U.S. aircraft used to transport fallen servicemembers do not use flares.

An unmanned tanker aircraft has successfully refueled a US Navy carrier-based fighter jet for the first time, the Navy announced Monday. The MQ-25 test asset then extend the hose and drogue from the Aerial Refueling Store and plugged into the fighter to transfer the fuel. The MQ-25 flew for the first time with the aerial refueling hardware required for its primary mission in December. Boeing said that flight testing will continue and that later this year a test asset will be sent to Norfolk, Virginia, for deck handling trials on a Navy aircraft carrier.

Planes Grounded by Covid-19 Largely Avoid the Junkyard—for Now
  + stars: | 2021-06-04 | by ( Mike Cherney | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
SYDNEY—After the coronavirus pandemic grounded air travel, many of the thousands of aircraft that were parked at storage facilities around the globe seemed destined for the scrap heap. Instead, aircraft owners are junking fewer planes than just before the pandemic. About 440 large commercial jetliners were scrapped in 2020, a roughly 15% decline compared with 2019, according to aviation-analytics firm Cirium. Another factor: prices for spare parts are low because many planes are grounded and don’t need extra components. Aircraft owners generate revenue from parts taken out of scrapped planes, so they may wait until demand for spares rises before junking their planes.

REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstPresident Joe Biden signed an executive order on Thursday that bans U.S. entities from investing in dozens of Chinese companies with alleged ties to defense or surveillance technology sectors, a move his administration says expands the scope of a legally flawed Trump-era order. The order prevents U.S. investment from supporting the Chinese military-industrial complex, as well as military, intelligence, and security research and development programs, Biden said in the order. "In addition, I find that the use of Chinese surveillance technology outside the PRC and the development or use of Chinese surveillance technology to facilitate repression or serious human rights abuse constitute unusual and extraordinary threats," Biden said, using the acronym for the People's Republic of China. A second official told reporters that the inclusion of Chinese surveillance technology companies expanded the scope of the Trump administration's initial order last year, which the White House argues was carelessly drafted, leaving it open to court challenges. In May, a judge signed an order removing the designation on Chinese mobile phone maker Xiaomi (1810.HK), which was among the more high-profile Chinese technology companies that the Trump administration targeted for alleged ties to China's military.

Kuala Lumpur The Foreign Ministry of Malaysia on Tuesday said it would summon China's envoy to explain an "intrusion" by 16 People's Liberation Army Air Force planes into its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), after Malaysia's military detected "suspicious" activity over the South China Sea. Malaysia's air force said it scrambled jets on Monday to conduct visual confirmation after the planes flew within 60 nautical miles off Sarawak state of Malaysian Borneo. It described the incident as a "serious threat to national sovereignty and flight safety." The Chinese planes did not contact regional air traffic control despite being instructed several times, the air force said. JUST WATCHED Why it matters who owns the seas Replay More Videos ...

THREATS AND CHALLENGESBritain, like China, now has two aircraft carriers, both countries dwarfed by the United States' 11. China claims 90% of the potentially energy-rich South China Sea, but Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also lay claim to parts of it. The United States has long opposed China's expansive territorial claims there, sending warships regularly through the waterway to demonstrate freedom of navigation. "It sends a message of NATO's resolve," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said onboard the aircraft carrier.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said she is optimistic that the United States and Europe can settle a longstanding dispute over aircraft subsidies, leaving them free to focus on larger issues, including China’s nascent aircraft industry. But I want to underscore how optimistic I am,” Tai told Reuters in an interview late Wednesday. Both sides agreed in March to suspend tariffs on billions of dollars of imports in a 16-year-old dispute at the World Trade Organization over subsidies for planemakers Airbus and Boeing. Asked if Washington would remove steel and aluminum tariffs as Europe expects, Tai said the bigger problem was global market distortion, a reference to overproduction by China. She has insisted that any solution to the metals tariff dispute be tied to a solution to global excess production capacity driven by China.
