Boeing Business Jets delivers to Nanshan Jet

In December 2011 Boeing Business JetsĀ  finished their fiscal year on a strong note with their delivery of a Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) to China’s Nanshan Jet.

The delivery was completed when officials from Nanshan Jet received the airplane from Boeing at their Delivery Center in Seattle. This BBJ will be the first plane totally operated by Nanshan themselves and not by Air China.

The BBJ was delivered by Boeing totally “green”, that is without any custom paints both externally or internally. This is so that Boeing’s customer – Nanshan Jet in this case – can do their own customization. The same is true for the interior, it is absolutely and deliberately undone and will be retrofitted by BizJet International in Tulsa. Nanshan have said the aircraft will be configured for 28 passengers.

This delivery will bring the number of Boeing Business Jets’ delivery in 2011 to seven and three of them are in China. Boeing Business Jets also stated that they expect 2012 to be an equally good if not better year.

Irkut MC-21

Irkut is a mid-range passenger jet with a Russian descent. Having seen the cockpit and the various systems within it, it is clear that the Irkut blends aviation technologies from all over the globe although the European overtone is most obvious. This blending of technologies from all over the world gives us quite a unique sensation. Normally, experienced pilots are able to tell from the cockpit which country developed the aircraft as each countries has their own bias towards certain instrumental and cockpit designs. This is certainly not the case with this Irkut, where if one was not told this particular aircraft is made in Russia, the country would probably not even be on the who-made-this-plane guess list.

Cockpits aside, the cabin of the Irkut MC-21 is quite spacious and one is reminded of the Airbus A-320.

All in all, the Irkut is a very impressive plane if this airplane is any indication, Russia is on the road back into Aviation Industry’s limelight.+

MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet)

The company MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet) certainly captured the crowd attention at the recent Singapore Airshow 2012. The company set quite an impressive landmark by launching a passenger fully developed in Japan. The airplane its self is a showcase of the finest blending of East and West aesthetics and technologies. Some highlights are the ultra-thin seats which lends the allusion of a much more spacious cabin that is certainly much easier on the eye than others. Other details such as the spacious overhead storage area shows off MRJ’s attentiveness. Right now, MRJ is the process of systems and flight tests and we should be seeing a full line up of jets from then in the near future!
