    The next large airshow for 2019 is the Paris Air Show and that is coming up on the 17th of June and will run through to the 23rd. It is one of the largest air shows and look-forward to events especially when it comes to commercial offerings. The traditional order-fest between long-time commercial rivals Airbus and Boeing is also looked forward to by the industry.

    In fact Airbus didn't seem to publicly report any major orders for the month of May. Whether that is to say they did not gain any orders or they are simply just waiting for the Paris Air Show to start to announce orders remains to be seen. Boeing on the other hand will try to have their game-face on in the midst of the 737 MAX grounding, a few 787 minor issues and engine snags for the General Electric Aviation GE9X powerplant that powers their new in-development 777X. The venue is Paris Le Bourget Exhibition Center, Le Bourget, France.

    One of the news items we are expecting to hear about coming out of this year's show is the announcement of the NMA from Boeing or otherwise known as the Boeing 797. Hopefully we will see an official rendering of the aircraft even though there are numerous schematics and renderings of what is believed that the new aircraft will look like.

    Boeing will showcase its broad range of commercial and defense products, services and technologies at the 2019 Paris Air Show, which runs June 17-23 at Paris-Le Bourget Airport. The company's presence and activities at the show will demonstrate its commitment to innovation, industry partnerships and safety. At Boeing's exhibit, visitors can immerse themselves in a large 360-degree theater and learn more about the company's capabilities throughout the product life-cycle. The interactive exhibit will also highlight Boeing's latest family of aircraft and services and give visitors a first look at the company's vision for the future of mobility. The exhibit will be located in Static Display C2.

    On the airfield, an Air Tahiti Nui 787-9 will demonstrate the breakthrough capabilities and innovations that have made the 787 a favorite of both operators and customers. A 737 Boeing Converted Freighter and passenger air vehicle (PAV) will be on static display. The U.S. Department of Defense also will display several Boeing platforms, including the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, the CH-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopter, the F-15 fighter, the P-8 maritime patrol aircraft and the international air show debut of the KC-46 tanker.

    Just ahead of the 2019 Paris Airshow Mitsubishi has rebranded their regional jet line that we previously knew as the MRJ. It is now called the SpaceJet and the models have all been renamed. For example there is the Superjet M100, this is the former MRJ90. As they announce the details at the upcoming show we will bring it to you.

    Embraer is definitely known for its eye-catching liveries on its test planes they plan to showcase at upcoming events. One of the test Embraer E195-E2s has been painted in a really stunning livery definitely designed to catch attention at the show. The slogan is once again the 'Profit Hunter' citing the aircraft's economics of operation and ability to bring operators profits. Here is a glimpse of the new livery on the aircraft that just arrived in Paris for the show.

    Airbus officially launches the Airbus A321XLR at the Paris Airshow. It is the latest iteration of the A321 and makes it the longest flying single-aisle aircraft when it enters service in 2023. The range is touted to be in the region of 4,700 nautical miles. Companies are already hopping onboard and ordering the aircraft tentatively. Lessor ALC (Air Lease Corporation) already has signed an LOI for 27 of the new type.

    Boeing suggests they will not be able to make the maiden test flight of the Boeing 777X as scheduled for June 26th. The first will will now be delayed to sometime later this year (no definitive date). This is all because of issues relating to the aircraft's massive GE9X powerplants which have been showing signs of wearing in the front compressor area. A redesign is needed and this will take a while and resulted in the delay of the first flight of this new 777 type from Boeing.

    It doesn't appear that Boeing will release anything much on the Boeing 797 at the show. We will have to wait and see if they are really hiding but it seems that with the ongoing 737 MAX crisis and delayed first flight of the new 777X Boeing is not keen on launching anything and cites that they are still accessing the business demand for such an aircraft to bring it from development to market.

    Boeing receives orders for 737800BCFs from GECAS. GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) signed an agreement with Boeing at the Paris Air Show exercising 10 purchase rights to firm orders and adding 15 more purchase rights for the 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF). "Our leasing customers are very pleased with the versatility and reliability of these freighters," said Richard Greener, SVP and Manager, GECAS Cargo. "It’s enabling operators to replace aging freighters and meet the rapidly growing express cargo market."

    The 737-800BCF, which is making its air show debut at Le Bourget this week, is Boeing’s newest freighter product. The company converts Next-Generation 737 passenger airplanes into cargo jets that are capable of carrying more payload – up to 23.9 tonnes (52,800 lbs) – and flying farther – 2,000 nautical miles (3,750 km) – than previous standard-body freighters. Today’s order is the third time that GECAS has purchased Boeing’s newest freighter since the program was announced in 2016. GECAS, the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric, now has 65 orders and options for the 737-800BCF.
