Southwest Airlines pilots ratified their tentative agreement to the tune of 93% in their recent vote, solidifying the last of the 'Big Four' in domestic airlines.

The deal stands for a 5-year contract, which will grant an immediate 29.15% increase in pay rates upon ratification, followed by yearly increases of 4% in 2025, 2026, and 2027. That drops to a smaller 3.25% bump in 2028. ARC Aerosystems has reported to ANN that it has finalized a transaction for the sale of five Pegasus aircraft to a Scottish investor to lease to a pilot training school and an aerial service operator, with ARC committed to delivering all units by the first quarter of 2026. The Pegasus is reportedly the first Non-helicopter VTOL aircraft to receive FAA certification. Virgin Galactic's ‘Galactic 06’ flight window will open January 26, 2024. This will be the Company’s 11th 'spaceflight' (keep in mind that the VG flight do not exceed the altitude established as the border of space, commonly called the 'Karman Line') to date and will follow a year of what they report to be unprecedented human spaceflight achievements that included six suborbital 'spaceflights' in six months.
