Sitting down for a chat with Keri Wright is more like reuniting with an old friend than meeting an esteemed aviation executive for the first time. In her trademark sincere and authentic manner, she tells the story of her ascent from a teenager seeking a place to belong, to owner and chief executive officer of Universal Asset Management (UAM) — an industry-leading global aircraft asset management,aftermarket component sales and disassembly organization. But don't equate her affable demeanor to a laid-back approach to business. Keri set her eyes on the skies years ago, and she's not slowing down anytime soon.

Time A Russian state-owned aircraft manufacturer unveiled a new mid-range aircraft Wednesday deigned to compete with Airbus and Boeing. The Irkut Corporation, part of the state-owned United Aircraft Corporation, unveiled the MC-21-300 airliner at a ceremony in Siberia attended by Russian heavyweights including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. The aircraft has a range of approximately 4,000 miles (6,400 km) and will compete with the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320.
International Business Times India, currently the world’s ninth-largest market for airlines, announced a new aviation policy Wednesday, a move that is likely to bring cheer to foreign airlines looking to enter the lucrative market. Among other things, the new rules ease requirements for airlines to fly international routes and the policy envisages increasing the domestic network significantly in the next three years.
Aviation Week Just like the superhero Thor, Airbus’ latest innovation of the same name is a mighty creation. Made using addictive manufacturing (AM), the mini plane is the world’s first 3D printed aircraft and the OEM showcased its latest innovation at the ILA Berlin Air Show 2016. Sporting a windowless, plain fuselage weighing just 21 kilograms and measuring less than four meters in length, THOR (Test of High-tech Objectives in Reality) has already made quite the mark on the industry and demonstrated exactly what can be achieved through 3D printing.
