Bombardier Gets Comfortable With New Cabin Door Addition to Lear 75

Bombardier is introducing a new pocket door to its Learjet 75 light jet for a more comfortable and enjoyable flight. With the addition of the new door bulk head it will separate the cockpit from the gallery, decreasing the noise in the cabin by approximately 6-8 decibels ; which are used to measure intensity of sound. The first plane to Exhibit the new Cabin door was on display at the EBACE (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition) show; held in Geneva, Switzerland.

The goal for this new innovation is to give smaller light jets a larger feel as if they are larger more luxurious cabins.  To date, Bombardier’s Booth Z115 has yet to given a set price and are willing to negotiate due to the different size cabins upon request. It will be offered to both 6 seaters and 8 seater aircrafts. Bombardier takes pride in competing while still being luxurious and providing its passengers with comfortability.

“The Learjet 75 business jet is already valued for its comfortable interior and its ability to fly further and faster than its nearest competitor,”

said Bombardier Business Aircraft president David Coleal.

Although the pocket door removes the ability to recline on the seats facing the rear, they are allowed to be pulled forward for a slight recline. When it comes to luxury, Bombardier provides each passenger with their own USB outlet and group of sidewall speakers creating a surround sound effect.  Including a seven-inch pop-up screen installed with a media center granting access to music and movies for a more comfortable and enjoying flight to passengers. The cockpit will remain as the Gramin G5000 Avionic in the Lear 75 to keep it light.

This year in Geneva, Bombardier will be showing off their 350 and 650 challenger models also a couple of Global 6000 The bombardier is choosing to enhance their Lear 70 / 75 family with this latest innovation of the bulk head cockpit.  For more information on Bombardier aircrafts and parts please visit us at for instant RFQ 24/7, 365 or give us a call at 1-714-705-4780 or email us at

American Airlines business class seat

American Airlines, the major American airline headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, has recently announced that the airlines will be utilizing a new design on its long haul business class cabin. The seats in the newly designed cabins will be built by B/E Aerospace, the Wellington, Florida-based company. These new seats will be equipped in the Airbus A350 as well as the Boeing 787 Dreamliners which American Airlines has on order. B/E Aerospace’s new seats will also be installed on a handful of retrofitted Boeing 777-200s.

“American’s new business cabin design follows closely in step with recent innovation in the global space. Each business class seat will recline into a fully flat position instead of the angled-lie flat design popular in the 1990s — a dated configuration still installed in many of American’s legacy international fleet,”

said Grant Martin from Forbes.

“In addition to better sleeping space, each seat in this so-called “Super Diamond” configuration will also have aisle access, improving on earlier generations with three or even four seats across in business class.”

American Airlines’ decision to collaborate with B/E Aerospace marks a significant change in design path strategy, as the airlines has recently been working with the French aerospace company, Zodiac Aerospace, on cabin design for new orders as well as equipment retrofits. However, due to several delays in product delivery, American Airlines has recently made the decision to end that relationship with Zodiac Aerospace in order to pursue a new cabin design partner. The airlines ultimately decided that B/E Aerospace would be the right fit, as the company commonly works with Emirates, British Airways, as well as Cathay Pacific.

“When passengers will be able to actually enjoy the new business class seats depends on when American gets its aircraft deliveries.  Last year, American delayed the delivery of five of its 787 aircraft in order to “better match supply with passenger demand,” opting to receive four of its units in 2017 over 2016,” Martin added. “From this year through 2018, the airline expects to receive an additional 27 aircraft. Additionally, American expects to receive 22 Airbus A350s in 2017. 777-200 retrofits, on the other hand, are ongoing, though American hasn’t released details on when the cutover to the new B/E seats will begin.

wedge lock nut

A new wedge lock nut has been announced as part of TR Fastening LTD’s expanding line of bolt fasteners parts. The single piece delivers technology usually provided by two components – a washer for locking and flanged nut that is easy to use.

The Design

The two pieces come preassembled in this new bolt in an innovative way that helps provide extra security by increasing tension instead of friction between the two parts. The inside of the washer has wedge shaped cams that react to any vibrations in the joint by stirring.

The outside of the nut has radial teeth on its outer part that increase compressing force by embedding the teeth into surfaces when tightened. The design of the nut also enables it to self-lock, as the fastening force of the joint increases due to the greater difference in the height of the cams than the area of the screw thread. The two pieces become permanently secure into the precise arrangement it was intended for, merging them to become one. This removes the risk of improper use that is more likely to occur with two individual pieces and it also reduces the time it takes to assemble the joint.

A key element of the design is the wedge lock nut’s ability to fit in hard to reach places, and it can also be reused without losing intended purpose. Overall, TR Fastening has made bolt security easier with the impressive design that provides a reliable source of safety and cost-effectiveness.

AMPLIMITE D sub connector

On June 2nd 2016, Marissa Martin wrote an article for Connector Tips talking about how TE Connectivity Ltd. and how they are increasing the range of accessibility for D sub connectors. In the article, Martin talks about how TE Connectivity as release more than 100 part numbers that will be available for purchase in the next six weeks or so. All of these 100 plus part numbers are under the AMPLIMITE D sub connector category. With this announcement, this is considered a huge benchmark for the company as TE Connectivity is planning to use this to significantly decrease the amount of lead time for standard AMPLIMITE connector parts. This decrease in time should be in effect by August 2016.

These subminiature connectors will be beneficial as these parts will have the ability to conform to MIL DTL 24308 as well as NASA specifications that are considered non-magnetic. In additional to this conformity, these parts will also be an industry standard in commercial and military applications.Being able to withstand industry standards means that applications will include such this as computer peripheral equipment, modes, industrial instrumentation, ground support devise, and military equipment.Here is what Kris Beaver, product manager of the Global Aerospace, Defense and Marine of TE Connectivity has to say about this.

“We reviewed the entire product portfolio to identify common components and or characteristics that when leveraged in our manufacturing process significantly reduces the lead-time. We have implemented the improvements on a substantial portion of our portfolio and thoroughly improved our lead times and delivery performance.”

TE Connectivity was founded in 2007.
