    The newest addition to the Airbus family of commercial aircraft, the A220, has received 180-minute extended operations (ETOPS*) approval from the Canadian civil aviation authority, Transport Canada. This achievement paves the way for A220 customers to start new direct non-limiting routings over water, remote or underserved regions. "This A220 ETOPS milestone adds to the numerous performance capabilities which the unbeatable A220 Family already offers," said Florent Massou, Head of Airbus’ A220 Programme.

    Construction has started on an A220 production facility in Alabama. The official ceremony took place on January 16th in Mobile, Alabama. The A220 is the former Canadian built Bombardier CSeries CS100 and CS300. now called the A220-100 and A220-300 after Airbus took over the program from Bombardier last year.

    Concern Airbus consolidates the market. The decision to purchase an A220 is the desire to remove competitors from the market. I found technical details about the aircraft on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbus_A220
    Here is a picture with this information.

    These are planes that make up very big competition. Especially C919. Many people know that Chinese companies can attract huge investments in their projects and influence the market, for example cars. Airbus is trying to maintain its position.

    Not to forget Embraer and their re-engined Regional jets such as the E190-E2 and E195-E2. Of course Boeing now have put their hands in that Brazilian venture.

    The ACJ319 "M-KATE" was listed for sale. It was designed - inside and out - by Andrew Winch.



    The owner is also selling his matching Eurocopter EC155, thus appearing he's renewing his fleet - some nicer replacements incoming?

    Would not surprise me if Mr. Rybololev is stepping up.
