@British_Airways We are thrilled to confirm two of our much loved 747s have found new homes. G-CIVB will be permanently retired at Cotswold Airport and will be open to the public from Spring 21. Whilst G-CIVW will start a new life at Dunsfold Aerodrome, available for training and filming.

@GulfstreamAero #NEWS: The fifth #G700 has taken to the skies. The test aircraft reached Mach 0.935, surpassing its maximum certified operating speed on its first flight. #AviationElevated #ArtOfExcellence.

@lesliejosephs American Airlines is planning to let customers tour the 737 MAX at several US airports next month and hold calls w travelers and pilots. FAA hasn’t cleared the plane yet but American is the most outwardly optimistic of the US carriers.

@MaryBKirby As US start-up Breeze Airways quietly hones its route network plan, the ultra low-cost carrier is factoring in the anticipated pent up demand of younger leisure travelers who may play a pivotal role in leading industry recovery. #PaxEx

@roscatha .@hse seek a company to provide Emergency Air Ambulance Service to transfer patients within Ireland and abroad due to

@IrishAirCorps @IrishCoastGuard  limitations on night ops. ‘The entire provision of the service would be the remit of the service provider’.
