Japan Airlines Announces Firm Order for 21 Boeing B737-8 Jets

Boeing and Japan Airlines (JAL) have finalized an order for 21 super-efficient 737-8 jets.

The versatile 737-8 will position JAL to strengthen its domestic and regional network as passenger traffic continues to return to pre-pandemic levels. JAL intends to begin introducing the airplanes into its fleet from 2026.

“We are delighted to select the Boeing 737-8, a member of the very latest 737 MAX family, to replace our Boeing 737-800s, which make up the largest proportion of the JAL Group’s fleet,” said Yuji Akasaka, president of Japan Airlines. “We look forward to carrying our passengers in the utmost safety and comfort and to moving closer to our 2050 carbon-neutral goals, thanks to a combination of these super-efficient aircraft, operational innovations and new fuel-saving technologies.”

The 737 MAX will provide JAL with greater range and fuel efficiency, reducing both fuel use and carbon emissions by 15% compared to the airplanes the airline is replacing. In addition, the 737 MAX is a quieter airplane, creating a significantly smaller noise footprint than the airplanes it replaces.

“The integration of the new 737 MAX will provide JAL with greater efficiency across its short-haul network, as the airline continues to upgrade its world-class fleet,” said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Partnering with JAL to introduce 737-8s into its operations is the latest milestone in our longstanding relationship.”

The 737 MAX family has the latest CFM International LEAP-1B engines, advanced technology winglets and other aerodynamic enhancements to improve performance. More than 50 airlines globally are operating over 900 737 MAX airplanes, which have made over 1.4 million revenue flights totaling more than 3.5 million flight hours since late 2020.

US Flight School Invests US$13 Million by Ordering an Additional 22 Piper Aircraft for 2025

These state-of-the-art Piper Aircraft add to the 12 Piper Archer TX aircraft Thrust Flight received in 2022. With an additional 8 Archers and 2 additional Piper Seminole aircraft due to arrive in 2023, Thrust Flight’s fleet continues to expand to meet the pilot training demand in the market. This will expand Thrust Flight’s fleet to over 50 aircraft.

Each of these aircraft come equipped with the Garmin G1000 avionics suite and feature air-conditioning for ultimate student comfort while training. These cutting-edge aircraft also come equipped with state-of-the-art autopilot systems, an investment that sets Thrust Flight apart from the majority of flight schools that don’t provide extensive training on autopilot systems.

“We take pride in providing the safest and best-equipped aircraft for our students to train in throughout the industry. Our commitment to providing comfortable and technologically advanced training sets us apart from other flight schools and has led to significant growth throughout our programs.” says Patrick Arnzen, CEO at Thrust Flight. “This is also part of our ongoing goal to keep our entire training fleet less than 5 years old.”

The expansion of Thrust Flight’s fleet comes at a crucial time, as the aviation industry faces a surge in demand for new pilots over the next decade. As a trusted provider of flight training, Thrust Flight is committed to meeting this demand by offering accessible, high-quality training to those who dream of a career in aviation. Keep an eye out for announcements about additional Thrust Flight locations coming soon.

These new aircraft will arrive in 2025 from the Piper Aircraft factory in Vero Beach, FL. They will be used at Thrust Flight’s two locations at Addison Airport and North Texas Regional Airport, plus future expansion sites.

Spartan College Hosts American Airlines Cadet Academy

Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology recently hosted American Airlines Cadet Academy to showcase their partnership to aspiring pilots, parents, and the community. In the last quarter of last year, American Airlines Cadet Academy announced its new partnership with Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology for aspiring pilots. Spartan is the Cadet Academy’s first collegiate partner offering an Associate of Applied Science degree in Aviation Flight and increases its training network to five locations.

“So we do a new class every month, and lately it’s been roughly on average about 18 to 20 students a month,” said Zachary Anglin of Spartan.

“Through this new partnership with Spartan College, American Airlines cadets have an opportunity to earn their FAA certificates and ratings, as well as their Associate of Applied Science degree. The Aviation Flight program at Spartan College can be completed in as few as 17 months with reduced ATP hours, housing options, and financial aid for those who qualify. Certified Flight Instructors may also continue their education to earn a Bachelor of Science in Technology Management degree from Spartan,” said American Airlines in a release last year.

The American Airlines Cadet Academy was launched in 2018 and nationwide currently has about 700 cadets enrolled.
