Frost & Sullivan: Record Production of Commercial Aircraft Spawns a Huge Market for Sensors

Rising fuel costs drive development of next-generation technology sensors that aid fuel efficiency in aircraft

LONDON, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — In 2013, for the third year in a row, the annual global production of commercial aircraft crossed 1,000 aircraft per year. In the next 20 years, the aerospace industry is expected to have an additional 34,000 commercial aircraft. The frenzied activity in this industry is expected to ripple into the sensor market. Sensor manufacturers have been developing technologically superior sensors to keep pace with airlines, which are updating their fleets with new fuel-efficient aircraft in order to stay competitive.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of Sensor Market in the Global Aerospace Industry, finds that the market earned revenues of $1.24 billion in 2013 and estimates this to reach $2.44 billion in 2020. The aerospace industry has been segmented into commercial and general aviation.

“The increase in fuel costs is driving the demand for fuel-efficient aircraft with next-generation engine technology and new jet power plants,” said Frost & Sullivan Measurement & Instrumentation Senior Industry Analyst Sankara Narayanan. “These innovations are compelling sensor manufacturers to develop advanced sensors that offer compactness, low cost, reduced complexity, interoperability and ability to communicate with other sensors.”

Delivering cutting-edge sensors for aircraft requires highly skilled employees and extensive coordination and integration with suppliers. As the design and production of aircraft is complex, the sensors have to be equally sophisticated. The aerospace industry has always been a trailblazer in sensor technology development and a new wave of technology awareness is spurring research in more advanced sensors for numerous aircraft applications.

“The measurement of critical parameters such as level, temperature, vibration, pressure, flow and position will remain critical for a safe flight,” noted Narayanan. “Therefore, as long as airlines continue to build and fly aircraft, there will be a demand for sensors in the aerospace industry.”

AIRWAYS AVIATION to Launch New Pilot Training Foundation Program

LONDON, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — AIRWAYS AVIATION announces the launch of its bespoke Pilot Training Foundation program in the United Kingdom, Australia, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, Montenegro, Jordan and Lebanon.

The new aviation theory classes will commence almost simultaneously in the various locations and provide students, interested in pursuing a career opportunity as a commercial pilot, a unique competitive edge and a critically important initial study pathway especially for those requiring extra help & support.

Classes for aspiring commercial pilots will commence between September 1st and October 20th 2014. A tailored curriculum has been professionally designed and written to provide prospective students a soft introduction while simultaneously maintaining a robust and practical launch into commercial pilot training.  The Airways Aviation curriculum is based on both European (EASA) and Australian (CASA) requirements and subject matter incorporates substantive introductions to all of the key disciplines including Aviation English, Aerodynamics, Navigation, Meteorology, Human Performance, Flight Rules and Air Law, Aircraft general Knowledge and Operations, Performance and Planning

Importantly, the course material and ultimate practical training programs are designed with a strong emphasis on supporting the specialised Aviation English elements continually during the entire study program. Airways Aviation intends to provide as wide a range of prospective students as possible, both male & female from varying nationalities, an equal opportunity to enter the aviation industry as commercial pilots.

“Our education & training model is designed to open up the possibility of a career as a commercial pilot to as many prospective students as possible but with particular focus on those whom have a passion and interest but had previously believed it was somehow beyond their ability to become a pilot.  We have been able to design a program that simplifies and demystifies the pathway by breaking down the key theory concepts & principles and then delivering the course in a clear, concise and easily managed method,”  said Romy Hawatt  Airways Aviation Global CEO

Successful completion of the Foundation course will provide students a further opportunity to transition on to finalise their commercial theory and simultaneously undertake their practical Aeroplane and/or Helicopter flight training at one of the Airways Aviation bases in Australia, the United Kingdom or Montenegro.  Airways Aviation are also currently seeking further expansion into Germany, Holland and Jordan with more study & training destinations to come on stream in the not too distant future.

Over the next 20 years Boeing & Airbus project a demand in excess of 35,000 new passenger & freight aircraft with each of these requiring numerous flight crew and a multitude of other support resources. With the expansion and upgrading of airline fleets globally, Airways Aviation is tracking growth and closely monitoring the current and projected aviation industry needs as key indicators of future pilot demand.

“Airways Aviation is primarily an education & training group that operates at the highest international standards.  We will continue to work hard to maintain and increase our competitive advantage and global positioning whilst still being nimble and adaptable enough to be able to operate on a very localised basis from country to country. Our business model is unique and differentiates us in a number of ways from our competitors. This shows particularly with the way we are better able to accommodate our international students needs from recruitment through to pilot training & graduation. The Airways Aviation Group is tracking according to plan and we will continue to posture and train commercial pilots to the highest standards to help meet the accelerating demands of the aviation industry world-wide,” added Romy Hawatt – Airways Aviation Global CEO.
