Air News on,Airlines,Aircrafts,V.I.P Executive Flights Keny|Tanzania|Uganda|Africa|East Africa & Central Africa

There are interesting aviation news on airshows, certification of business jet aircrafts and world air news round up and many other activities in the September article.


Avex Show to Highlight Aircraft Customization.

This air show will be held in Cairo in November 2010 and will highlight a growing trend in North Africa and the Middle East –the customization of aircraft-by organizing an event called “Custom Jet Show” which will focus on a wide range of aircraft customizations and innovations.

The idea behind Avex International air show is to showcase how aircraft cabins can be converted from the “ordinary “albeit luxurious into super-luxurious and right up to “flying palaces”.

“We have uncovered a high degree of enthusiasm from business jet owners and operators who want to showcase their customized aircraft and learn more about what has become an entire industry sector dedicated to refurbishing and customizing aircraft interiors as well as exteriors this were the remarks by Avex  International  air show director, Nicholas Watson. He went a head to say “Aircraft customization is becoming increasingly popular in the Middle East and Africa region, where owners want to create an aircraft that suits their personal or their client’s tastes. By using an existing aviation platform-AVEX –the Custom Jet Show taps into this growing market and provides an opportunity for participants to harness its potential”.

While the recent global economic crisis has without a doubt short-circuited growth in aviation markets across the world, the proverbial silver lining is now on the horizon.

Boeings current market outlook (CMO) which was published recently, predicts passenger traffic volumes will rise at an average rate of 5.3% in the period 2010-1029, with new aircraft demand expected to nearly double to more than 36000 in 2029.With 3050 new aircrafts added to the existing AFRICAN AND Middle East fleets during this period indeed it has contributed significantly to this recovery.

Due to demand for private aircraft increases in this region, so does the demand for aircraft interior and exterior customizations is needed for passenger comfort.

This multi-billion dollar global industry spans a range of sectors, from bespoke interiors and personalized aircraft liveries, in-flight entertainment and onboard connectivity, to fully equipped bathrooms and kitchens with the capacity to prepare restaurant quality food in-flight.

To be held concurrently with AVEX,the Custom Jet Shows format will consist of two exhibition days-November 7 and 8 –and the Custom Jet Show Awards, which will honor outstanding achievements in the categories of ‘Exteriors and Aircraft Livery’ and ‘Passenger Experience’. The awards will be held on the evening of November 8, 2010.

Slush planing, tyres and Central European winters

Nokian Tyres is known for its reliable and safe winter tyres (in Swedish: vinterdäck) for the Northern climate, but they do know more mild Central European winters well as well.

In Central Europe, the speeds are higher and temperature warmer than in North, but during the winter time, the weather may change rapidly. High safety is needed on slush, snow and ice, both wet and dry conditions.

The most problematic weather condition in Central Europe is slush. Slush planing a high risk because the tyre loses contact with the road and there is no possibility to steer the car anymore if the contact is lost. According to a study of Tampere University of Technology made in 2008, the risk of fatal accidents is 4.9 times higher on slush than on dry roads. If the temperature rises above zero degree Celsius, slush us even more dangerous. A car will start skidding because of slush planing and slid off the road or could not break in time.

As the slush is more than common in Northern roads of Europe during autumn and spring times, Nokian Tyres has carried out slush planing tests for 15 years and is one of the pioneers on it. The company owns testing ground for tests where both longitudinal and lateral slush planning is measured and researched. The engineers of Nokian Tyres have developed exact test methods for slush planing testing – and the development is an ongoing process.

Nokian Tyres have developed special tyres like the Nokian WR G2 and Nokian WR G2 SUV for Central European winters. These tyre (in Swedish: däck) models provide especially high safety on slush and are optimised better performances in the local, milder weather. Extra care has been seen that the tyres are not only safe, but they consume only little fuel and are environmentally friendly also. Due to its lower rolling resistance, Nokian WR G2 saves fuel half a litre per 100 kilometres. The tyre is made from natural product like canola oil and silica, which replace high aromatic oils that more harmful to nature.

When released to market, Nokian WR G2 was recommended based on the test judgements of the German automobile association ADAC, and the German car magazines “auto motor und sport”, “Auto” and “sport auto”. This is to prove that the engineers of Nokian Tyres have been able to design the safe tyre for moments of slush.
