Musk Seeking Mars Mission After NASA Picks SpaceX-Boeing

"SpaceX is the new kid on the block, but it's proven its capabilities very quickly," said Marco Caceres, director of space studies with Teal Group, a Fairfax, Virginia-based consultant. "SpaceX would love to be the first commercial company to land its own private astronauts on the moon and eventually go on to Mars."

Bombardier Seen Delaying CSeries Again as Tests Continue

"They're being borderline delusional if they think they're going to meet the 2015 target," Richard Aboulafia, an aerospace consultant with Fairfax, Virginia-based Teal Group, said in a telephone interview. "That's not going to happen. If it's the first half of 2016, I will call that a strategic victory." Aboulafia has more than 20 years of experience in the aerospace industry and writes reports providing forecasts of aircraft markets.

Boeing-SpaceX Team Splits $6.8 Billion Space Taxi Award

"It's entirely possible that we wake up one day and the Russians say, 'We're not taking your astronauts up anymore,'" said Marco Caceres, director of space studies at Fairfax, Virginia-based consultant Teal Group. "NASA's anticipating this possibility. That's why they want to move as quickly as possible with this program."

Funding two ventures may raise development costs while also fostering competition and giving NASA an alternative if one vehicle encounters technical difficulties, said Marco Caceres, director of space studies with Teal Group, a Fairfax, Virginia-based consultant.

Congressional opposition to a similar arrangement for the crew contract has waned as the fraying U.S.-Russia relationship focuses attention on NASA's dependence on Soyuz rockets to put astronauts into orbit, Caceres said in a telephone interview.

"The Russians have done NASA a favor in terms of funding," Caceres said.

5 Largest Defense Firms Shed 14 Percent of Their Workforces in Last 6 Years, Analysis Shows

"As the prospects for growth have decreased in the defense industry, the way that defense companies can attract investors is by showing that they can increase profit margins," Philip Finnegan, director of corporate analysis at the Teal Group, an aerospace and defense market research firm, told Politico. "There's been a drive in the defense industry to increase profit margins and return more to shareholders."

Bombardier CSeries tests resume, with hopes they will spark new orders

But Richard Aboulafia of aviation consultancy Teal Group in Farifax. Va., and a longtime critic of the CSeries program, was blunt and severe. "Oh right, hooray! You fire everyone associated with the program, you have this unpleasant looking accident followed by a long unexplained silence (from Bombardier after May 29) and a nasty company re-organization. But hey, you're flying again. I mean, what the hell?" Aboulafia said "at this point, you can't rule out a total program failure."

GE Aviation Plans 2nd Ceramics Plant

Engine makers are accelerating production efforts amid a rise in aircraft purchasing by carriers seeking more efficient models. At a time when fuel represents the largest share of airline operating costs, improvements in under-wing technology have helped jets operate more economically, said Richard Aboulafia, an analyst at Fairfax, Virginia-based Teal Group. "It becomes essential to replace older, less-efficient jets with newer ones. They pay for themselves," he said."Every decade we get about 10 or 12 percent better. The meaning of that double-digit improvement is so much greater because of the high cost of fuel."

Boeing May Boost Production of Its Bestselling 737

Boeing May Boost Production of Its Bestselling 737

 That pressures Boeing to cut the wait for its new 737s, which can stretch to years for some airlines, says Teal Group analyst Richard Aboulafia.

The real problem is long-term," Aboulafia says, noting the record-high output for single-aisle airplanes over several years, with no slowdown until both the A320neo and MAX are in production. "Then you'll have Airbus try to exploit a first-mover advantage and Boeing working hard to ramp up faster and catch up. This all sounds like a recipe for overcapacity by the end of the decade."

Giant Airbus A380 Finds Sales Not So Big

Giant Airbus A380 Finds Sales Not So Big

But critics like Richard Aboulafia, an aerospace analyst at the Teal Group, an aviation-consulting firm in Fairfax, Va., say the main problem is more fundamental: Airbus made the wrong prediction about travel preferences.

He said people would rather take direct flights on smaller airplanes than get on big ones — no matter their feats of engineering — that make connections through huge hubs. "It's a commercial disaster," Aboulafia says. "Every conceivably bad idea that anyone's ever had about the aviation industry is embodied in this airplane."
