Rack 'Em Up... Gulfstream Announces New City-Pair Records

G700 Sets New Standard for 50 Legs En Route to Singapore

Gulfstream arrived at the Singapore Airshow with 50 city-pair speed records under its wing, making a trip of 5,197 nm in 10h13m using a brand-new G700. The trip began in Los Angeles, California, to Nice, France in the first leg at an average speed of 0.90 Mach. Then, Gulfstream did it again, heading from Nice to Singapore for a 5,754 nm trip in 11h30m at the same speed. That made its 51st speed record for the marque, who keeps setting new standards in just how quickly global trade hubs can be connected with their ultra-capable G700. Previously, the model made the run from Savannah, Georgia to Tokyo, Japan in 10h53m, running at an average speed of 0.91 Mach.

 Also: Lakewood Airport v SportAv Haters, UTI-Miramar A&P Program, AERO Friedrichshafen, SnF 24 Update

 
 
Set Jet, a private jet operator hoping to carve out a niche offering by-the-seat charter flights, has quietly folded up shop and closed down after running out of investor money.

Delta Air Lines will be offering passengers a chance to view the upcoming solar eclipse from the air, using an Airbus A220-300 with "premium viewing, extra-large windows" to follow the path of the eclipse at its peak. Delta Flight DL 1218 will take off from Austin, Texas at 12:15 Central, and land in Detroit, Michigan at 16:20 Eastern, following a track that will provide them with the greatest exposure to the eclipse.

Set Jet Quietly Shutters Operations

Failed Transition to SPAC IPO Leaves Would-Be Private Jet Firm Penniless

Set Jet, a private jet operator hoping to carve out a niche offering by-the-seat charter flights, has quietly folded up shop and closed down after running out of investor money. For the firm's almost 3,000-strong membership base, the news is bad all around, according to an apologetic but disappointing email. Set Jet's operations are completely closed, with no customer service lines taking calls and all employees retired with immediate effect. Those who had pre-paid for future flights or been billed for memberships? No refunds, but at least there won't be any future billing. In short, the firm simply couldn't continue spending money it no longer had, particularly after missing out on a desired bridge loan that would have provided a couple years of operational funding at 2023 scale.

Appellate Court To SmartSky... Nuh-Uh!

District Court Denial of SmartSky Attempt to Prevent Gogo From Selling its 5G Solution Upheld

ANN has learned that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has upheld a decision by the United States District Court for the District of Delaware in denying SmartSky Networks’ motion for a preliminary injunction against Gogo Business Aviation to keep it from selling its Gogo 5G product. The Delaware court found that SmartSky failed to establish that it is likely to succeed on the merits of its claims and that it is likely to suffer irreparable harm if a preliminary injunction is not granted.
