Media Release 21.08.2019
Swedish Air Ambulance Organisation Acquires Six Pilatus PC-24s


After a long period of intensive and very professionally conducted negotiations,
the “Kommunalförbundet Svenskt Ambulansflyg” (KSA) has opted for six Pilatus PC-24s
in a fully equipped air ambulance configuration.
These PC-24s will provide aeromedical care across Sweden from 2021.

KSA is a national organisation formed, mutually owned and financed by all 21 regions in Sweden.

The regions are responsible for ensuring that everyone living in Sweden has equal access to good healthcare.

Time is the essence for patients in an emergency and given the vastness of Sweden,
the establishment of a national air ambulance service provides all residents with access to rapid, professional aeromedical care.

Combining the speed of a jet with the ability to use short runways
– one of the great strengths of the PC-24 –
the Super Versatile Jet from Pilatus is the ideal aircraft for KSA.
https://corporatejetinvestor.com/articl ... 58-pc-24s/
KSA was founded in 2016, with the goal of providing medevac flights across Sweden.
It is owned, and funded, by each of the 21 regions in the country.

As well as the pilots and patients, the PC-24 will be able to carry up to four medical professionals.

KSA becomes the second medevac operator of the Pilatus 24.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) initially ordered three aircraft in 2014,
with the first aircraft officially handed over in November 2018.

RFDS later topped up its 2014 order with firm orders for three more aircraft.

KSA says that the PC-24s will be based between Umeå Airport, Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport and Gothenberg’s Landvetter airport.

It is currently establishing an operations coordination Centre at Umeå’s University hospital, in the northeast of the country.

The organisation acquired some of the equipment needed for the aircraft in 2018,
when it took delivery of portable medical devices, including patient monitoring systems,
defibrillators and an infusion system to provide patients with an intravenous drip.

Russian supersonic Tupolev business jet proposal is taken off the agenda

Posted on September 6th,
2019

Contrary to the wishes of Russian president Vladimir Putin expressed last year,
the Russian aerospace industry will not now be proceeding
with developing a supersonic business jet based on the platform of the Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bomber,
industry and trade minister Denis Manturov has told Vedomosti business daily.

According to his statement,
a clean-sheet aircraft developed by United Aircraft Corporation (UAC)
will cost twice as much as one based on its subsonic peers.
Russia’s aerospace research and testing expert Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) and UAC
have been conducting research and development on the supersonic programme since 2017
and have so far spent some 1.4 billion roubles (US$21.5 million) in the process.

According to Manturov, such an aircraft should seat between 16 and 19 passengers
and offer a speed of between 2,000 and 3,000 km/h.

“Making it fly at 1,500 km/h makes no sense.
Today’s commercial airliners fly at almost 900 km/h,
so who would want to pay twice [as much] for a supersonic aircraft,
if the difference in speed isn’t so significant,” the minister speculates.

The plan is to develop and start testing a technology-demonstrator at some point between 2020 and 2022 –
and then embark on the aircraft concept development up to 2026.

The idea to use the Tupolev Tu-160M supersonic strategic bomber as a suitable basis for a business jet
originally stemmed from president Putin.

But a year later, Manturov argues that such a project is impossible,
because the task is not to “put a human into a capsule and transport it between two points in space breaking the sound barrier.”

Besides, he says, the Kuznetsov NK-32 engine, which powers the Tu-160,
does not comply with the requirements for commercial operators
and won’t be the right size for a business jet.
So the engine would have to be developed from scratch as well.

Newest Embraer type, Praetor 500:

https://airlinerworld.keypublishing.com ... eb-banner/

The Praetor 500, Embraer’s new midsize business jet has been granted its type certificate by the European Union’s Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The executive jet received regulatory approval from Brazil’s Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC—Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) in August, less than a year after the aircraft was announced at NBAA-BACE, held in Orlando, Florida in October 2018.
The Praetor 500 achieved an intercontinental range of 3,340nm (6,186 km—NBAA IFR Reserves with four passengers), a high-speed cruise of 466 KTAS, a full-fuel payload of 1,600 lb (726 kg), a take-off distance of only 4,222 ft (1,287m) and an unfactored landing distance of 2,086 ft (636 m).
Michael Amalfitano, president and CEO of the Brazilian manufacturer’s Executive Jets arm said: “The triple-certification by ANAC, EASA and FAA reaffirm the most disruptive and technologically advanced design of the Praetor 500 as the best midsize jet ever made. Praetor 500 owners will now enjoy the ultimate customer experience in the midsize class, with the highest level of performance, technology and comfort.”
The Praetor 500 can make non-stop flights in North America, from Miami to Seattle, or Los Angeles to New York as well from New York to London, London to Dubai and Jakarta to Tokyo. The
Praetor 500 can also connect the west coast of North America to Europe and to South America, from Los Angeles to London or to São Paulo, with single-stop performance.

Judge rules that EDC can proceed with sale of Global ZS-OAK

A judge in the UK courts has ruled that the sale of Global 6000 ZS-OAK can now go ahead,
after Export Development Canada (EDC) settled its litigation with Westdawn Investments.

EDC is Canada’s export credit agency.

EDC said in an August 2019 statement
that it had loaned Westdawn Investments $41 million in April 2015
to help finance the acquisition of Bombardier Global 6000 MSN 9631 / ZS-OAK.

Westdawn Investments is a South African company that is owned by the Gupta family,
the wealthy Indian-born South African family with interests in computing, media, and mining
and whose members who are under investigation for misappropriation of large amounts of state assets have fled the country.

They have refused to return to face court hearings and to participate in criminal investigations.

The Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) has ordered a Cessna Citation Longitude.

The Longitude will be used for flight validation and inspection operations. Cessna says that the aircraft will be delivered in 2021.

The JCAB currently operates a small fleet of five Citation CJ4s for its flight-calibration missions.

Nesterov Aviation, the Pilatus dealer in Russia, is preparing for the first delivery of a PC-24 to a Russian operator,
which it says will take place shortly after the Russian authorities certificate the aircraft for operation in the country.

Mikhail Alenkin, Nesterov Aviation’s owner,
is expecting certification to be handed to the PC-24 before the end of the year
and says that several PC-24s have been ordered by Russian customers for the delivery over the next few years.

some five years after the first of the ultra-long-range twinjets entered service.
The milestone aircraft was handed over to an undisclosed U.S.-based customer,

Operator is FlyingGroup
Base EBAW but we might see it more often in Holland as the owner is Dutch and EBAW has some limitations on this A/C type
