  1. Most aviation-oriented folk will know that Monarch Airlines ceased a few weeks ago, but it may not be as well-known that the name and famous "spotty M" logo live on, in Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited (MAEL). As a "standalone business within the Monarch Group", MAEL were not directly affected when the airline went under, so continue operations at their bases. All footage here is from the period since the airline closed, and shows some of the more recent customers at their Birmingham Airport Maintenance Repair Overhaul (MRO) base, including Evelop and the Virgin Atlantic and Norwegian 787 Dreamliners. The Volga-Dnepr Ilyushin Il-76 arrived from Seattle, bringing Boeing equipment to the facility. https://www.monarchaircraftengineering.com/SOURCE
  2. Air China Limited is the flag carrier and one of the major airlines of the People's Republic of China, with its headquarters in Shunyi District, Beijing. Air China's flight operations are based in Beijing Capital International Airport. In 2013, the airline carried 51 million domestic and international passengers with an average load factor of 81%. Air China introduced its new Airbus A330-300 to long-haul operations beginning with services to Düsseldorf, Germany in summer 2011. These aircraft provided the same two-class cabin standard as the Airbus A330-200 except that the economy cabin had no seat-back entertainment system installed (with the exception of the first two economy rows which also had increased legroom). Düsseldorf is now the third German destination on the Air China network. The airline launched a new Beijing-Milan-Malpensa service on 15 June 2011, complementing the airline's existing service to Milan from Shanghai. The A330-300 is based on a stretched A300 fuselage 63.69 m (208 ft 11 in) long but with new wings, stabilisers and fly-by-wire systems. The −300 carries 295 passengers in a three-class cabin layout, 335 in two-class, or up to 440 in an all-economy layout. It has a range of 10,500 km (5,670 nmi; 6,520 mi). It has a large cargo capacity, comparable to that of early Boeing 747s. It is powered by the choice of two General Electric CF6-80E, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, all of which are ETOPS-180 rated. The −300 entered service in January 1994. In 2010 Airbus offered a new version of the −300 with the maximum gross weight increased by two tonnes to 235 t. This enabled 120 nmi extension of the range as well as 1.2 t increase in payload. In mid-2012, Airbus proposed another increase of the maximum gross weight to 240 t. It is planned to be implemented by mid-2015. This −300 version will have the range extended by 400 nmi and will carry 5 t more payload. It will include engine and aerodynamic improvements reducing its fuel burn by about 2%. In November 2012, it was further announced that the gross weight will increase from 235 t to 242 t, and the range will increase by 500 nmi or 926 km or 575 mi to 6,100 nmi (11,300 km; 7,020 mi). Airbus is also planning to activate the central fuel tank for the first time for the −300 model. In September 2013, Airbus announced a version of the A330-300, named A330 Regional. This version is to have seating for 400 passengers, with a reduced range of 3,000 nautical miles (5,560 km; 3,450 mi) and a gross weight of approximately 200 t (441,000 lb). As of January 2016, 748 -300s had been ordered, 646 of which had been delivered, with 629 in operation. The 2015 list price is $253.7 million. The closest competitors have been the Boeing 777-200/200ER, and the now out-of-production McDonnell Douglas MD-11.SOURCE

  4. Largest ever turboprop airplane in the world! After a break of eight years, the world has one Antonov An-22A Antei back in commercial service again - and Air-Clips was on board for you! Watch this beauty taking off from Kiev Gostomel bound for Zürich in September 2016 before her first commercial mission in her new life. The Antonov An-22 "Antei" is a heavy military transport aircraft designed by the Antonov Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. Powered by four turboprop engines each driving a pair of contra-rotating propellers, the design was the first Soviet wide-body aircraft and remains the world's largest turboprop-powered aircraft to date. The An-22 first appeared publicly outside the Soviet Union at the 1965 Paris Air Show. Since then, the model has seen extensive use in major military and humanitarian airlifts for the Soviet Union. In the late 1950s, the Soviet Union required a large military transport aircraft to supplement the Antonov An-8 and An-12s then entering service. Originally known as the An-20, the model is a conventional multi-engined high-wing design. In the early 1960s, the Antonov bureau produced a wooden mock up at its Kiev, Ukraine, workshops of what was designated the Model 100. The prototype, now designated the An-22, was rolled out on 18 August 1964 and first flew on 27 February 1965. The prototype was given the name Antheus and, after four-months of test flying, was displayed at the 1965 Paris Air Show. All aircraft were built at the Tashkent State Aircraft Factory and the first military delivery was made to the Air Transport Wing at Ivanovo Airbase in 1969. The aircraft was designed as a strategic airlifter, designed specifically to expand the Soviet Airborne Troops' capability to land with their then-new BMD-1 armoured vehicles. The An-22 cargo hold can accommodate four BMD-1 compared to only one in the An-12. It also has the capability to takeoff from austere, unpaved, and short airstrips, allowing airborne troops to perform air-landing operations. This is achieved by four pairs of contra-rotating propellers, similar to those on the Tupolev Tu-114. The engines generate significant thrust, and produce a slipstream over the wings and large double-slotted flaps. The landing gear is ruggedized for rough airstrips, and, in early versions, tire pressures could be adjusted in flight for optimum landing performance, although that feature was removed in later models. The An-22 follows traditional cargo transport design with a high-mounted wing allowing a large cargo space of 33m in length and a usable volume of 639m³. The forward fuselage is fully pressurized and provides space for 5 to 8 crew and up to 28 passengers, but the cargo space is pressurized to only 3.55 PSI / 0.245 bar allowing for a lighter airframe. A door equipped with pressure bulkhead is located at frame 14, separating the cargo attendant's compartment from the main cargo compartment. This allows the rear cargo doors to be opened during flight for paratroops and equipment drop. Like the An-12, the aircraft has a circular fuselage section. The An-22 has set a number of payload and payload-to-height world records. The An-22 has the general appearance of an enlarged version of the earlier Antonov An-12 except that it is fitted with a twin tail. This gives the An-22 better engine-out performance, and reduces height restrictions for hangars. Also of note are large anti-flutter masses on the top of each tail. Only one production variant was built, the standard An-22. Prototypes, such as the one first featured at the 1965 Paris Air Show had fully glazed noses that lacked the nose mounted radar of production models. Those aircraft had the radar mounted below the right wheel well fairing, forward of the wheels. Antonov designated a variant with a modified electrical system and an additional augmented flight control system the An-22A but the designation was not used by the military. Antonov Airlines is a Ukrainian cargo airline, a division of the Antonov aviation company. It operates international charter services in the world of oversized cargo market. Its main base is Gostomel Airport near Kiev. The company owns the Antonov An-225, the world's largest operational cargo aircraft and the only one completed. The airline was established and started operations in 1989 through a marketing agent agreement with Air Foyle to market Antonov An-124 Ruslan cargo charters worldwide. This relationship ended in June 2006. The same month Antonov Airlines and another large player in the global specialty air cargo business, Volga-Dnepr Airlines (Russia), established a joint venture company — Ruslan International — where each company has a 50% stake. The joint operation of the Ukrainian and Russian fleets allows them to share the combined An-124-100 commercial fleet of seventeen aircraft (seven of which belong to Antonov Airlines) and the only Antonov An-225 in service worldwide — the largest cargo aircraft in the world.SOURCE

  9. Dear friends and followers, what an amazing week! After getting a pep talk from Mike Vacanti, my personal trainer for a week, I was back on track and refocused to continue with my Tough Mudder preparation. But my shoulder remained a permanent issue. „Pumping iron" is great, but I was told to give my body some to time to recover from heavy workout routines. And that’s where BLACKROLL came to help. A German company near lake Konstanz that also works with the German National Football Team. They are the founders of the original "BLACKROLL", with which you do various "rolling" techniques for your myofascial muscle training and recovery. It´s more intense then it looks. Although it´s a foam roller, the BLACKROLL is pretty rigorous and stiff. By partly putting your body-weight on the roller, you literally massage yourself by rolling back and forth in many different positions. And to spice things up a bit, BLACKROLL recently introduced the "BLACKROLL-Booster", which is a very strong vibrating add-on, which intensifies the massaging effect and loosens up any restraints or muscular issues. Think of it as your personal masseuse, wherever, whenever... So Markus, the owner of AERAS Training centre and the master trainer for BLACKROLL, tested my flexibility and mobility, before starting off with the rolling. He quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses, two of them being my right ankle joint and my right shoulder. He then focused the entire training session around those areas by using the BLACKROLL and other Blackroll devices in all sorts of variations. It was literally a miracle. I felt so much better after the flossing (explained in the video) and rolling techniques. Markus wanted to change up the recovery a little bit, so we drove a few miles down to lake Bodensee, pumped up some paddle boards, jumped into the water and continued the rolling on the lake. Great fun, but very difficult if you have balance issues. Your core muscles are tested to their limit as you are constantly balancing out the wobbly paddle board. I definitely have to do more of that next summer. My personal résumé: I must admit I’ve always underestimated the recovery part after any workout. My idea of recovery was sitting in front of the television :) I now know that „active recovery” is equally important as training and nutrition. Especially when you have a crazy flight schedule. There are many ways of doing this, BLACKROLL is a practical and effective tool that I like to use on a regular basis. I even bring them with me on the plane if I have longer layovers. They produce everything from the classic foam rolls, to Yoga blocks, elastic bands and posture holders that I - as a pilot - can wear during a flight. Check out their website https://www.blackroll.com/ and use the code BR_Fly&Roll_2017 for a 10% discount when you shop any products. Finally: Please COMMENT BELOW if you want to win one of two BLACKROLL starter kits. Make your comment stands out! My team and I will choose a winner. Good luck and happy rolling :) Thanks for watching, all the best, your "Captain" JoeSOURCE

I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience - I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve.... Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.SOURCE
  11. Last sunday I filmed the departure of a Boeing 747 of ASL Airways. The orange colours of the previous operator TNT Airways will disappear soon which is quite sad cause I liked this unique livery. The day after the departure I was at Liege again and so I filmed the arrival from Shanghai aswell. It` s also the first time I filmed the "gear down and locked" process. Thanks for watching, see you next time.SOURCE
  12. AirClips joined a full flight from Kryvyi Rih to Kropyvnytskyi (former Kirovograd) in Ukraine to include a training go-around in Kryvyi Rih. We joined this mission with 15 video cameras placed all over the plane and are glad to release all STUNNING footage to the public - all for free as always. During the first months we will release selected short sequences with an ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIE (full multicam film) released thereafter. The pictured flight was the last leg of UR-ELIs journey back from an United Nations assignment in Africa to its home base in Kirovograd. On the same morning the airplane already flew-in from Turkey on its long ferry flight. The last en-route stop in Kryvyi Rih was necessary for Ukrainian customs formalities since final destination Kirovograd only features a small domestic airfield. URGA International Joint Stock Aviation Company is a charter airline based in Kropyvnytskyi, Ukraine. It operates charter passenger and cargo flights from various Ukrainian airports to destinations in Greece, Slovakia, the Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Bulgaria, and Cyprus. Its main base is the Kropyvnytskyi Airport (KGO). The airline was established and started operations in August 1993. It was founded as International Joint Stock Aviation Company URGA, initially concentrating on charter flights. Regular passenger flights from Kiev and Kryvyi Rih were added in May 1997. Air Urga is owned by the State Property Fund of Ukraine (51%) and American International Consulting Corp (43.5%). It has 378 employees. The Air URGA fleet includes seven Saab 340B, three Saab 340B Plus, four Antonov An-26-100 combi, one single Antonov An-26 full cargo plane and one Cessna 172 for training and sightseeing flights as well as local transport missions. The Antonov An-26 (NATO reporting name: Curl) is a twin-engined turboprop civilian and military transport aircraft, designed and produced in the Soviet Union from 1969 to 1986. After successful operations of the An-24T tactical transport in austere locations, interest in a version with a retractable cargo ramp increased. Initial studies for the retractable ramp were carried out as part of the projected An-40 medium transport. When given the go-ahead for the An-26 in March 1968, the Antonov OKB adapted the ramp design of the An-40 to the An-24 fuselage, resulting in the An-26. Particular attention was given to the military mission, and the majority of early An-26 production was delivered to the VTA (voyenno-transportnoy aviatsii). Using the majority of the An-24 airframe, with its high-set cantilevered wings, twin turboprops and stalky main undercarriage, the An-26 included military equipment, such as tip-up paratroop canvas seats, an overhead traveling hoist, bulged observation windows and parachute static line attachment cables. The An-26 made its public debut at the 27th Paris Air Show at Le Bourget where the second prototype, CCCP-26184 (c/n00202), was shown in the static aircraft park. The An-26 is also manufactured without a license agreement[1] in China by the Xian Aircraft factory as the Y-14, later changed to be included in the Xian Y7 series. The An-26 has a secondary bomber role with underwing bomb racks. In the bombing role it was extensively used by the Sudanese Air Force during the Second Sudanese Civil War and the War in Darfur. Also Russian Forces train with the An-26 as a bomber. This footage was taken during a filming session early 2007.SOURCE
