    • As of the end of May, there were 876 aircraft in the Russian commercial jet fleet down from 968 aircraft in late February. Most of these were made by Airbus or Boeing planes, both of which stopped supplying spare parts to Russian airlines in order to adhere to sanction rules. Sanctions have cut a huge chunk out of Russia’s international air traffic, according to consultancy Ascend by Cirium. The number of aircraft it tracked on international flights on June 10 was 179, compared to 493 on January 3, 2020. That’s largely because around 70 percent of Aeroflot’s planes are leased by a company that has called in its aircraft, demanding them back from the Russian carrier. According to arstechnica.com, the Airbus A320 (reg, YU-APH) landed at 10:37 pm on May 25, 2022, at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport. It had flown in from Belgrade and was due to take off again on a late-night return within the hour. But there was a problem: The pilot had reported an issue with the plane’s engine casing that needed to be fixed. The supplier of the broken part, Charlotte, North Carolina-based Collins Aerospace, reportedly refused to fix the problem, citing sanctions against Russia resulting from its February 2022 invasion of Ukraine. It took six days for the problem to be fixed and the A320 to depart Moscow for Belgrade.

    • Scenery developer Jetstream Designs is very close to releasing their next airport product for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This new package doesn’t just include one, nor two, but THREE airports in a singular package. Those airports, all based in Italy, as are follows: Falcone Borsellino Airport – LICJ (Palermo) Lampedusa Airport – LIDC Pantelleria Airport – LICG The bundle project is nearing completion, with plenty of screenshots showing off each. Whilst the bundle pack will provide the best value for those wanting a selection of Italian airports, each will also be sold individually. No price or release date has been confirmed yet. We’ll keep a close eye on what Jetstream have to offer and let you know once we learn more. View the full article
    • Relatively new developer Cockspur has released a brand new SG38 Schulgleiter for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The high-wing glider was first made in 1938 with over 10,000 of the type built. It may not be in production anymore, but there is still a good handful flying today. The glider itself, by today’s standards at least, is somewhat poorly designed with a glide ratio of just 10:1. Once in the air, the real challenge is to try and stay there for as long as possible. Cockspur has designed and built the glider for MSFS. It includes a winch system to get the glider in the air. After that, it’s all down to you to keep the plane in the air and push yourself to fly far as possible. If you want to push yourself and fly this classic glider, then you can pick up a copy from Cockspur’s website for €2.99. You can also learn a bit more about Cockspur’s previous aircraft, the A22-LS in our previous post. The team is also working on an Citation 510 for those wanting something a bit more powerful.

    • More RAF Typhoon jets are expected to be deployed to Cyprus to focus on the Black Sea and the southern border of NATO. The Ministry of Defence fleshed out the details in a news release: “RAF Typhoon and F-35B Lightning fighter jets, Royal Navy vessels including Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers, and brigade-sized land forces will all be made available to NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) as part of the New Force Model. NATO has introduced the New Force Model in support of Leaders’ decision to modernise and strengthen the NATO Force Structure for the future. Allies will declare capabilities, equipment and forces available to support SACEUR, ensuring they are in the right place at the right time. This will allow the Alliance’s military command to plan for emerging threats, safe in the knowledge that these assets will be available to take part in the Alliance’s response. The UK will also contribute to the new Allied Reaction Force: an agile, multi-domain and combat-effective force ready to deploy at very high readiness and to respond to a range of crises.” The post RAF Typhoon and F-35B fighter jets will all be made available to NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe appeared first on AIRLIVE.
