inspections were ordered after two airlines reported fuel leaks on their
Dreamliners. The agency gave airlines a week to check the lockwires and
another two weeks to look at the connectors. Boeing said half of the 38
airplanes that have been delivered have been checked and they're working
on a production-line fix. More...

NEXTGEN TECHNOLOGY EXPANDS IN COLORADO
New technology now
available will help pilots better cope with bad weather in the mountains
near Montrose, in the western part of Colorado, the FAA said this week.
The Wide Area Multilateration (WAM) system makes it possible for air
traffic controllers to track aircraft in mountainous areas that lack
radar coverage, the FAA said. "This system will allow pilots to fly
search and rescue missions in weather conditions that would have
previously kept them grounded," said Michael Huerta, acting FAA
administrator. The system also will enable pilots to land in conditions
that previously caused diversions or flight delays, Huerta said.

goods made in China is on the increase. However, airline service between
Africa and China is an expensive and time-consuming process, creating
the perfect set of circumstances for the right aircraft.
