Tweet Picks:
@AlexInAir Rwanda, one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa, leaves 2019 ready to take on the next decade by significantly growing its aviation industry after Qatar signed to help build, own 60%, and operate a new state-of-the-art airport near Kigali.
@BrianSumers This is a fascinating story. Looks like @BoeingAirplanes and @qatarairways  may not have considered the environmental backlash from this scheme.
@jonostrower How important is commercial aviation to a country? Kiribati has a GDP of $188 million (per World Bank 2018). The country’s government is taking two $61 million E190-E2s (40-60% discount). These two airplanes will be roughly a THIRD of the country’s economy.
@jontalton What got Boeing to this point: MD “merger,” moving headquarters to Chicago, wrecking engineering culture, Jack Welch management style, weak board, captured FAA, making employees “cower,” all about pleasing Wall Street.
@K_Kourousis Aviation & healthcare safety expertise in Ireland needs to be actively engaged by  @HSELive , rather than only reverting to its internal resources. An outside/fresh look & sufficient independence to investigate accidents/incidents & solve safety problems is necessary.
