November 2019

Gulfstream took front-page honors in our November issue, with the announcement of its new flagship project, the G700. Unveiled at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas, the long awaited announcement was expected, but stunningly executed on the eve of the show’s opening. The new Gulfstream will combine the best features of its G650 with advances made in the design of its recently certified G500/600 model. Priced at $75 million, the G700 is expected to have a range of 7,500 nm. A mockup of its five-zone cabin was on display at NBAA-BACE.

A summary of new turboprops is featured in November, including the latest offerings in twins and singles. From improved derivatives to ambitious technological leaps of faith, the lineup of hopefuls is worth a good look.

AIN conducted a survey on different companies’ policies - or lack thereof - on the use of personal devices in the cockpit. With distractions on the flight deck a hot button these days, the responses from readers are illuminating; and in some cases, a bit surprising.

This month’s Rotorcraft section takes a deep look into last year’s fatal doors-off helicopter accident in New York’s East River. The final report is in, and the details suggest that there could be some major changes in regulations in the future.

The topics of illegal charter and Russian business aviation challenges are also on tap this month. We also feature a pilot report on Leonardo’s TH-119, a candidate for the U.S. Navy’s rotorcraft training contract.

Finally, semi-retired former AIN defense editor Chris Pocock attended the Reno Air Races and delivers an expert-eye view of the world’s fastest motor sport, accompanied by stunning photos.
