Airborne 02.23.18: Textron Nixes TTx, GAMA $Billing$, Bronco II

Also: Airliner Evacuation, Tuskegee Airman Event, Sikorsky Combat Rescue Helicopter, FreeFlight Txp Integration

Textron Aviation has apparently ended production of the Cessna TTx airplane, though the company has not officially confirmed or denied that it has made the move -- or even responded to our questions. ANN became aware of the situation following an email from a reader saying that all information about the airplane had been removed from the company's website, which a quick check on the Internet confirmed. The scrubbing has been thorough, with a search of "TTx" on the company website returning no results. We sent an email to Textron Corporate Communications, which has not responded to our inquiry. GAMA has released 2017 year-end aircraft shipment and billings numbers at its annual “State of the Industry” press conference. GAMA Chairman Phil Straub, Executive Vice President and Ma

Airborne 02.21.18: AEA Report, Aerocor Eclipse Program, WWII Airman Recovered

Also: Gulfstream To Expand, Med-Trans Partners, FAA SAIB On AT-6, Passenger Gas Curtails Flight

The AEA has released its 2017 year-end Avionics Market Report. Total worldwide business and general aviation avionics sales amounted to more than $2.3 billion. The figure represented a 2.9 percent increase in sales over the previous year. The increase reverses two-straight years of declining sales. 42.3 percent came from forward-fit (avionics equipment installed by airframe manufacturers during original production) sales, or more than $984 million. That marked the lowest dollar amount of forward-fit sales recorded in the last five years. Aerocor LLC has introduced a "first of its kind" Certified Pre­Owned Program for the Eclipse 500 and 550. Aircraft selected for Certified Pre­owned status are subjected to a thorough review and will include fresh inspections along with first-year scheduled maint
