COMMERCIAL AVIATION

Pressure Points

Seoul In a market as dynamic as Asia’s, no airline business model can remain static for long. This is certainly true for Korean Air. The carrier has established itself as a major power on key transpacific and North Asian routes, but it is now adapting its strategy to meet competitive threats from new directions.

FARNBOROUGH AIRSHOW PREVIEW

A Right British Spectacle

London Frankfurt This year’s Farnborough Airshow could be memorable, not only for its planned lineup of industry debuts but also for the air of uncertainty that surrounds the future of Britain in the European Union. With an aviation sector worth £65 billion ($91.8 billion), British and European aerospace leaders are keenly monitoring the June 23 referendum on whether to exit the EU.

Rotary Revolutions

Washington Efforts to develop what became the helicopter began long before those that led to the airplane and continued well after the Wright brothers achieved powered, controlled and sustained flight of a fixed-wing aircraft. It would take another three decades to arrive at a practical helicopter, but once developed, the idea was quickly embraced, entering military and commercial service within 10 years.

In This Together

London The loss of 13 lives in an offshore helicopter accident in Norway in April was another bitter blow to an industry that has been trying to turn its reputation around. Despite the global slump in oil prices that has reduced demand for helicopters servicing oil and gas platforms, and even prompted one operator—CHC Helicopter—to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to attempt a restructuring, the operators, the helicopter manufacturers and their clients—the energy companies—are harmonizing their efforts, collectively sharing data and information and promoting best practices in procedures and operations in a bid to improve offshore safety.
