Military Helicopter Assembly Line Inaugurated in Brazil

first_img Helibras opened a new assembly line at its Itajubá unit, in Minas Gerais, where helicopters EC725 will be manufactured to supply the Brazilian Armed Forces, as well as a civilian version of the same aircraft, the EC225, used as transportation for oil exploration platforms offshore. The total project investment is worth 420 million reals (US$ 207.86 million.) This includes company premises, training programs, and all necessary works and innovations for helicopter production. Through this agreement, Helibras is committed to producing 50 large multi-mission helicopters in Brazil. “It is a program that serves the interest of the Government to acquire customized helicopters with cutting-edge technology and an incentive in boosting the national industry; the Helibras / Eurocopter partnership enables the production of more complex aircrafts,” said Eduardo Marson Ferreira, President for Helibras. With respect to the supply chain, Helibras has already hired 14 Brazilian companies that manufacture parts and that provide necessary training to pilots, mechanics, technicians, and engineers, either in France or in Brazil. Representatives of the three branches of the Armed Forces are accompanying the project, to guarantee the transfer of effective technological demanded by the Brazilian Government in this program. Following the project’s schedule, four EC725 units were already submitted; one in July 2010, and three in December 2010. The final deadline for delivering the 50 aircrafts is 2017. The next helicopters constructed in Brazil are already in Itajubá. Among them is a unit that will serve as a model for the development and integration of systems and the first one to be completely processed in the Minas Gerais’ production line. Innovations promoted by the company, in agreement with the Armed Forces, include the development of the Engineering Center. In the last three years, this sector grew so much that the engineering population increased almost eight times: nine engineers in 2009 to 70 this year. The new facilities at the Helibras industrial complex in Itajubá, Minas Gerais, were built from the most up-to-date engineering techniques, the most advanced materials used in civil construction, and modern sustainability concepts.

Prepare for rain, hail and setbacks

If people want to buy a house they will come rain, hail or shine.” Lightning pictured over Brisbane City, Brisbane 25th of October 2018.

Place Bulimba agent Shane Hicks will take this house at 24 Brussells Avenue at Morningside to auction today, Saturday October27, at 9am.As for sellers, Mr Hicks said there were a few things they could do to ensure their best shot at auction. These included providing a building and pest inspection to all prospective buyers, get a rental appraisal done, provide a report on all of the easements, stormwater and sewer pipes on the property, list comparable sales in the area to give the purchaser a broad guide as to the price range and ensure the agent is opening for inspection during the week and on a Saturday.“All of this will put the seller and agent in more control but more importantly make the buyers job of making the decision much easier and give them a great deal of confidence in that decision,” he said. Place Bulimba agent Shane Hicks.“From the start we encourage all interested buyers to start that pre-approval conversation with their advisers early,” he said. “The other issue that can come up is a party being out of town, but that’s usually an easy fix as they can register an agent or friend to bid on their behalf.“And sometimes a buyer has sold their own property and then there is an issue with that contract.“That’s when we encourage them to still attend the auction and if it doesn’t sell we can enter in to a private treaty.”last_img read more

O’Gara dropped by Ireland

first_img That performance appears to have been the final straw for coach Declan Kidney, who has named injury doubt Jonathan Sexton and the inexperience Paddy Jackson and Ian Madigan as his three fly-half options for Saturday’s game at the Aviva Stadium. Ulster’s Jackson only won his first cap against Scotland and struggled with his goal-kicking while Madigan, of Leinster, has yet to represent his country. Sexton, meanwhile, seems unlikely to feature after team manager Mick Kearney on Thursday rated his chances as “somewhat less than 50-50”. Like Sexton, locks Mike McCarthy and Donnacha Ryan and wing Craig Gilroy are included in the party despite struggling with injuries, but centre Darren Cave and under-20 back Robbie Henshaw miss out due to concussion. Ronan O’Gara has been left out of Ireland’s extended 32-man squad for next weekend’s RBS 6 Nations clash with France. The fly-half, 36 next week, is Ireland’s most capped player with 128 appearances but has been in poor form this season. After struggling against England in week two of the championship, and for Munster against Llanelli during the rest week, O’Gara’s dreadful cross-kick deep in his own half was highlighted as Ireland lost to Scotland last weekend. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Martinez eyes January moves

first_imgEverton manager Roberto Martinez will dip into the transfer market next month to provide cover for striker Arouna Kone and midfielder Darron Gibson, both of whom are out with long-term knee injuries. “We are going to use the window in January to try to help the team because we lost two players for the long term,” said the Spaniard. “Arouna and Darron are two very important players for us so we will try to see if we can identify one or two players that can help the group. “We have been working hard to identify who can help the group and that is what we are looking for in January.” Martinez admits his initial fears Kone would not recover from an operation to repair damaged cartilage in time to play a part in the remainder of the season have materialised. “Arouna started the first part of his recovery and it is going to be long-term, as expected,” he added. “I don’t think we are going to see Arouna this season. “If we can get him back for the final two months he will have done really well. “There was a big chunk of cartilage that had to be repaired in his knee. “In the same manner we are hoping we can see Darron Gibson before the season ends but clearly it is a long-term injury as well.” Press Associationcenter_img The Toffees boss has virtually ruled out Kone’s return before the end of the campaign with Gibson also seemingly likely to struggle to be back in the current season.

Morgan sticks up for Ulloa

first_img “We know we are good enough. “There are only positives you can take from Man United. It has not gone the way we wanted and we could have picked up more points.” It was Sunderland’s first clean sheet since they were hammered 8-0 at Southampton last month and they host Chelsea on Saturday. And boss Gus Poyet, who made 145 appearances for Chelsea, has challenged the Black Cats to end the Blues’ unbeaten Barclays Premier League run. “I think from now until the end of the season it is going to be like that for every single team,” he said. “Everyone is going to try to be the one to beat Chelsea first. “We have an opportunity, let’s see if we can take it. We need to be spot on, not make any mistakes, be organised and be brave on the ball so we are not defending all the time. “There’s plenty of things you need to do very well on the day but we have done that in the past.” The Foxes captain insisted the £8million record signing is not to blame for their goal woes after Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Sunderland. They have not netted in five straight games with their last strike coming in the 2-2 draw with Burnley on October 4. Ulloa was ineffective again against the Black Cats and has not scored in seven games after bagging five in his first five outings. Morgan said: “It’s not just down to Leonardo on his own. It’s a team effort. We’ve all got to chip in and no-one’s scoring at the moment. “Someone else needs to score to take the pressure off him, off the strikers, off the team. I’m sure once that happens the goals will start flooding in. “He hasn’t had a clear-cut chance of late. He is still working hard for the team. His performances have been great. He’s just not getting that chance and I feel for him. “He’s working so hard for the team. His performance all round was fantastic and he set up two good chances.” The point ended a run of four straight defeats for Nigel Pearson’s side but they have not won since beating Manchester United 5-3 in September. Morgan added: “We had a tough start and did so well. Maybe other teams looked at us and thought: ‘Right, they’re going to go on and do good things.’ “That’s not been the case. We’ve stuttered since then. We need to find our confidence again, our belief. I’m sure once we start scoring again it will be back to normal.
