Although Textron Aviation has paused development of its largest-yet Cessna Citation—the Hemisphere—due to delays with the jet’s Snecma Silvercrest engines, “The Hemisphere is still a program that we’re very excited about,” said Rob Scholl, Textron Aviation senior v-p of sales and marketing.

About two weeks ago, Textron Aviation president and CEO Scott Ernest and senior vice president of engineering Brad Thress visited Snecma for an update on the Silvercrest. The engine had suffered problems with its high-pressure axial compressor during flight testing. “We’re working with them to see how their testing’s going,” Scholl said. “We’ll probably know in about 12 to 18 months where they are. But we are still very much committed to the Hemisphere.”

According to Thress, “Next July they’re supposed to run that test with the redesigned compressor and prove that the engine is where it needs to be. So that’s what we’re waiting on. In the meantime, we’re working closely with them, and they’re giving us engineering performance data as they gain it, with respect to modeling performance of the changes that they’re making. We’re staying hand in glove with them as they work through it to make sure that we understand the design limitations on the overall airplane.”

Scholl explained that Textron Aviation is still collecting customer feedback on the Hemisphere design. “We’ve had the mockup over in our advanced design studio and we take customers through it all the time. We’ve gotten their feedback, so there’s still some time to make some changes if we want to.”

Regarding Snecma, Thress said, “I couldn’t be more confident. These are competent people. They built 40,000 CFM56s. They’re the largest turbine helicopter engine maker on the planet. They have a host of military engines. They absolutely know what they’re doing.”

A slick modern villa, designed by the QBI studio in Vietnam, cuts into the blue sky from lush green gardens. Led by architect Tran Le Quoc Binh, the project has a unique and youthful look that was based not only around great style but on the individual personality of the homeowners and how they use their living quarters.

A balance had to be reached between artistic ideas and practicality in order to form a beautifully functional home. The facia with its angular volumes, portholes and letterbox windows is intriguing and inviting, filling us with wonder for what lies within.

Fractional aircraft and lease sales at Flexjet climbed 17 percent year-over-year in the first half of 2018, the company announced yesterday. New business was even more robust, soaring by 76 percent from a year ago, it said, adding that 57 percent of new Flexjet owners came through referrals from existing owners.

“During the past several years, Flexjet has delivered the fractional industry’s youngest fleet, expanded service overseas, and introduced programs such as our Red Label by Flexjet premium offering. The results of this investment are clear: strong growth, driven in large part by the satisfaction of current owners,” said Flexjet CEO Michael Silvestro.

Meanwhile, the fractional provider continues to expand its Red Label program, which offers young aircraft with “artisan aircraft interiors” and dedicated flight crews. In fact, Flexjet said that 42 percent of its fractional clients now fly under Red Label.

Flexjet’s large-cabin offerings are also increasing in popularity, with the company noting a more than 100 percent increase in Gulfstream G450 sales during the first half. In addition, shares in the two ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650s Flexjet received in October were sold out by year-end, it said. To meet demand, Flexjet will take delivery of 19 more aircraft over the next three months, including two more G650s.
