5,300 cu ft of cabin space in the ACJ319 gives a lot of room for eight to 18 passengers to experience a really comfortable ride.

If you want to see the inside of a really big business jet–one that’s the size of an airliner–at the NBAA 2013 static display at Henderson Executive Airport, you may encounter a silk rope draped across the handrails at the bottom of the passenger stairs. A professionally attired man or woman standing by the rope will explain that the aircraft is being shown and then politely suggest, “Please come back later.” Later could take a long time.

United Airlines split-scimitar winglets

By the end of this year, the Aviation Partners Boeing joint venture is expected to receive certification of the new split-scimitar winglet for the Boeing 737.

A United Airlines 737-800 equipped with the split scimitar winglet made its first flight on July 16 at Boeing’s Everett, Washington plant. United is retrofitting its 737-800 and -900ER fleet with the new winglets, starting early next year after certification is complete.
