Here’s the summary of our newest issue, just for you! The 256th issue of Airways Magazine since 1994:
Let’s start this issue with a very unusual but av-nificent collaboration. Our Publisher and Editor-in-chief, Enrique Perrella, teamed up with our Senior Business Analyst, Vinay Bhaskara, for this month’s Airways Feature: The Embraer’s E2 new program.
In this section, you will find the exclusive content of Brazil’s most successful commercial aircraft program to date, taking a look at the evolution of the program since its launch at the 2013 Paris Air Show, until the first flights of the prototypes.
And now, let’s make a stop in Cape Town International Airport with Sebastian Schmitz, in order to learn about the history, development, and future growth of this airport, also known as the gateway to the Mother City.
Now it’s time to leave Southern Africa behind. Let’s head to Oceania with Ken Donohue, who will guide us through the history of Regional Express Airlines – REX and, briefly, explore how it has emerged to execute an essential role in Australia’s local air travel.
If this round-the-world trip is not enough for you, sit next to Ben Wang and go with the tides and fly with Loganair’s Twin Otters to Barra in Scotland.
For those diehard Convair fans, we have brought the Second Chapter of The History of Convair’s Jetliners. Charles Kennedy revives the fate of the Convair 880 and 990 after they left the fleets of their original customers.
Meanwhile, Jamie Baldwin digs on the old days of Pan American-Grace Airways, also known as Panagra, and how it spread its wings from Panama to Chile and Argentina.
To conclude, Brian Schiff shared with us a Thank You Note about having trust on pilots when they take us places. A must read you don’t want to miss!
That’s a wrap for this issue, AvGeeks. Until the next one! We’d love to talk more about this issue, but wouldn’t you prefer to discover it yourself? Now available at our Store and on the newsstands!
