Airbus A220

Swiss grounded all their A220 due to engine troubles last week and only been returned back to service after engineering inspections have been carried out while Air Baltic has operated 13 Airbus A220 in the first two years have had 50 engine replacement due to various reasons. Sounds like The GTF seems to be a highly unreliable engine with a lot of teething issues. but once all the problem has been resolved will be a great engine with wonderful fuel burn saving.

This means that you should say "spelled" in US English and you can use both "spelt" and "spelled" in UK/Australian English.

As long as that entity exists, execution of the contract scope of services will remain the responsibility of that entity, regardless of its ownership. If the potential new owners elect to incorporate the AMSA SAR services into another part of their business operations (like into another legal entity), then novation of the AMSA contract will be necessary and will require agreement of the affected parties.

AMSAR is currently running at a 4 million dollar per year loss, any new buyer of cobham will seriously look at the viability of that current contract.

There is a reason cobham went through a series of restructuring over the last couple of years was due to this contract, and the majority of the people who were involved have been managed out of the business or taken retirement.

The only reason AMSAR is still afloat is all because of the Border Force contract, however Cobham are strongly looking at losing this contract to Air Affairs when the renewal is due.
The follow on affect of this would be catastrophic for the company.

Cobham is ironically running on fumes, and we aren't taking about an Islander.

How do you know this?

Can you explain what was restructured?

By AMSAR you mean the AMSA contract right? Which is completely different and separate to the border patrol contract.

Have you got anything to back that up? The freighter contract runs until at least 2025 and is profitable. The Qantaslink 717 contract runs until 2026 and is slightly profitable.

You seem very down on Cobham?
