PLANS FIRST U.S. FACTORY
Airbus will build its first U.S.
factory in Mobile, Ala., the company announced on Monday, in a move that
aims to help Airbus compete with Boeing on its home turf. Aircraft in
the A320 family will be assembled and delivered from the facility. "The
time is right for Airbus to expand in America," said CEO Fabrice
Bregier. The U.S. is expected to need 4,600 airplanes similar to the
A320 in the next 20 years, he said. The $600 million plant is scheduled
to open in 2016 and will create about 1,000 jobs. Boeing spokesman
Thomas Brabant said those jobs "pale in comparison to the thousands of
U.S. jobs destroyed by illegal subsidies." Airbus and Boeing both have
complained to the World Trade Organization that their rival receives
illegal government support. More...

DRONE CODE -- THREE LAWS OF UAS PROPOSED
The Association for
Unmanned Vehicle Systems International published a set of guidelines on
Monday to help ensure that drone aircraft are operated in a "safe,
non-intrusive" manner. "By proactively adhering to these guidelines, we
want to demonstrate how the rights of individuals and the safety of all
users of civil airspace are our top priority, as we work to unlock the
incredible potential this technology holds," said Michael Toscano,
president of AUVSI. The FAA recently proposed that drones should start
to be integrated
into the national airspace by 2015, a move that has raised many
questions about safety and surveillance. These concerns are addressed by
the AUVSI code, which proposes that all UAS operations should promote
"safety, professionalism, and respect." More...

CANYON RESTRICTIONS STOPPED
Some last-minute political
maneuvering by Nevada and Arizona congressmen from both sides of the
aisle has stopped the National Parks Service from imposing more
restrictive anti-noise regulations on air tour operators in Grand Canyon
National Park. The Parks Service wanted to introduce rules that would
have resulted in the "substantial restoration of natural quiet" to the
park by limiting flights in such a way that two-thirds of the park would
have been free of audible aircraft 75 to 100 percent of the time. It
also would have encouraged operators to buy quieter aircraft by allowing
them more flights in those aircraft. Aviation groups were concerned
about the proposed regulations on philosophical grounds in that they
would have effectively given the Parks Service control over airspace.
But the politicians who banded together to shoot down the initiative had
more practical concerns. More...

BOOSTS AIRLINER FORECAST
Ahead of the Farnborough Air Show
order fest, Boeing has revised its market forecast upward, saying the
world will need 34,000 new airliners over the next 20 years and the
business will be worth $4.5 trillion. That's up from a mere $4 trillion
predicted in its previous forecast and, as expected, Asia is fueling
most of the growth. Boeing says the Asia Pacific region will take more
than 30 percent of those aircraft as air travel continues to grow
rapidly in emerging nations. "It's incredible to see just how much air
travel has changed since I took my first flight back in 1977," said
Boeing's VP of marketing, Randy Tinseth. "It has become critical to
business and something we do for pleasure, to connect with family and
friends. As the market continues to grow, especially in emerging
economies, air travel will become affordable to even more people."

ANA 767 HARD LANDING CREASES FUSELAGE
An All Nippon
Airways Boeing 767-300 carrying 193 passengers was damaged during a hard
landing at Tokyo Narita airport, Wednesday, June 20, 2012. The ANA jet
touched down on Runway 16R. Airport weather reports show winds at 230
and 16 knots gusting to 29 at that time, suggesting a potential
crosswind component of more than 27 knots. However that may have
affected the pilots and aircraft, security camera footage shows the
airliner came down first on the right main, then on the nosewheel alone,
before porpoising into a second impact that appears to impart visible
flex on the airliner's forward fuselage. No injuries were reported, but
an early post-flight inspection clearly showed buckling and creases in
the fuselage skin forward of the wing root. Japan's transportation
safety board is investigating. Click the image at right for video.
