Airbus has begun shore-to-ship trials in Singapore with its Skyways parcel delivery drone. This marks the first time drone technology has been deployed in real port conditions, to deliver a variety of small, time-critical maritime essentials to working vessels at anchorage. The maiden shore-to-ship delivery flight was made to the Swire Pacific Offshore’s Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessel ‘M/V Pacific Centurion’, 1.5km from the shoreline of Singapore’s Marina South Pier, carrying 1.5kg of 3D printed consumables. Landing safely on the ship deck and depositing its cargo to the shipmaster, the Skyways unmanned air vehicle swiftly returned to its base, with the entire flight taking within ten minutes.FAA expects Boeing update for troubled jet ‘in coming weeks’

US aviation regulators say Boeing needs more time to finish changes in a flight-control system suspected of playing a role in two deadly crashes. The Federal Aviation Administration said on Monday it anticipates Boeing’s final software improvements for 737 Max airliners “in the coming weeks”. Boeing was expected to complete the work last week, but FAA says the company needs more time to make sure it has identified and addressed all issues. The FAA says once it gets Boeing’s completed proposal, it will conduct a rigorous safety review. The planes have been grounded around the world since mid-March.Airbus to introduce ‘Connected Experience’ platform

Following extensive market feedback and support from industrial partners, Airbus has decided to proceed with an IoT Platform for the cabin, known as the Airbus Connected Experience. Up to now, this has been a concept study, which is ‘coming to life’ following cooperation agreements signed with three best-in-class partners: gategroup, Stelia Aerospace and Recaro Aircraft Seating – with more to join. The platform will link in real-time interconnected core cabin components, including the galleys, meal trolleys, seats, overhead bins and other cabin elements. As well as allowing data exchange throughout the cabin for the crew, it is also planned that consolidated information could also be uploaded to the Skywise cloud for subsequent trend analytics.R4.5bn new development at O.R.
