Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway

"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces.

"Your bill be widely available by June or July will be able to cast a lot of folks and see what percentage of people in our court of already got it that'll give us a sense of where we are on herd immunity Textron a follow up question on that system where they have conducted antibody testing they found at least ten times as many people as initially thought already have the virus my question why even bother testing for infection this point why not focus on just antibody test well I think the key right now is still focusing on capping like we've been doing is you know we get a positive in a in a nursing home or in a manufacturing plant or multiple ones say we get one resident one staff it's important for us to get in there because sometimes people may be pre symptomatic meaning they've already caught it but they aren't showing symptoms and we need to get in there and do testing and find out if there are but you know a dozen people were not nursing home it already got better it doesn't staff that might be you know got it working to bring it all their families and so that's why we're trying to really deploy what we're calling out bound casting to hot spots in where we can find to find positives we want to get in there then we find out we can't find out who the clauses are and then we contain those folks by containing people that are either positive or close contact that's how we open up the rest of the state keep it open is because we are only quarantine those that are sick as opposed to asking everybody to to practices safe distancing and such as business the business scalpel versus dislodge hammer approach and it's a skill that we're going to have to happen we need to have the test we can find out right away whether people are positive negative not be anybody testing where it tells us that they've had it previously a question from a parent here talking about students not being able to learn while at home saying I have a child was home schooled I also have two children that are in the public school system the child to this home school gets a four point oh grade point average my oldest daughter has a three point five grade point average as a freshman in high school the youngest is at a two point five average in sixth grade the summation to me is that with distractions but the public school students have is a lower average that home schooled students also my home school students are still able to go and participate in sports extracurricular activities with their peers X. cetera I'm hearing from a fair amount of parents concerned about you know that okay an hour in some cases of school work a day up to two and a half depending on the age hours of of school work per day just isn't a way for them to be able to learn and I in addition to that obviously you have all the things that are missing in the social things being with their their friends family etcetera that it is time to reopen schools I realize is close to the end of the school year you talked about that as far as the percentages of kids that have a certain amount of weeks left what's your what's your thoughts on number one the success of learning home distance learning in actually teaching the kids and then secondly having some normal school year for these kids before it disappears in the books the first thing from the you know the parents got the test case of three kids I think one thing that we know is that every student learns that their own pace and every students got different ways that they learned some learn better by you know reading someone better by listening auditory auditory learner someone better by exponential someone better by combinations and want to think that I think we can but still pretty cold but we're looking at that that are you know K. twelve education and saying you know what this was there's a lot of innovation that has happened we've got a lot of districts that are really leading but we also got a lot more to learn about the best you know most efficient and effective way to help teach kids and it will be setting whether it's at your home schooling or or whether it's in the school buildings and so I I think that out of all this disruption there's gonna come a lot of reflection and a lot of innovation about how we can do a better job serving those students and being really student centric and and really getting to the point where we've got it in you know individualized approach to everybody's learning that's wanting to talk a lot about it but you know P. twelve innovation working were doing in the governor's conferences on innovation education this is real it is there's no one size fits all when it comes to education and so we gotta keep making sure that were flexible enough to serve students in meet them where they're at and help them work because they also learn a different time tables and and I think we've got a you know set up in our mind like Hey this is what you're supposed to run in second grade or third grade but at those ages depending on the cut off you could have a second grader that's awful almost a full year older than somebody else in the same class more they're going to be a different level of development I mean anybody can see that if the kids are quite Hocker sake the soccer hockey and you know what you know when your birth date is the person that cut off the kids are older tend to do better so we we need to and then talk about youth soccer hockey but should we have to keep that keep our minds open stay curious and that there's an opportunity for us to do it differently and better as far as we opening you know this is a big debate because we've got there's so many variables here I've I've said if you open up schools again this isn't you know just like turning the dimmer switch up again in terms of taking on more risk spread this is like you know turn on the stadium lights at midnight because you have a hundred ten thousand kids back in buildings that might have to be disinfected every night we've got students that are got but I have health issues that we need to be concerned about might be difficult for them to come back we've got teachers about underlying health conditions so there's a lot of factors and we get a lot of input trying to get input from all the different groups the superintendents the teachers union the the local school

interior color choice nothing says the future like a mustard yellow it's Dijon view get it like Asia if you don't have to laugh I know no I I I it's worth a laugh was guest it's doctors turn to play the video game kids hand over the controller here years ago north reading surgeon by the name of Justin Barak decided to dress the unpredictability of the medical world and he came up with a company called osso VR instead of these bulky expensive often outdated simulators doctors can use virtual reality to assess situations a recent study found to be two hundred thirty percent more efficient than traditional training and then there's another company called shell games and it's a mobile game slash training called night shift that puts players in the shoes of a trauma doctors dealing with all kinds of distracting family issues then there's another game super level acts they make more realistic mobile games to use their use by a half a million medical professionals you know I guess it makes sense because instead of having a doctor just like cut you open you want them to practice a few times don't you like me before you get like a knee replacement or hip replacement and then if they could practice on video games virtual games it makes sense for us to be that they would be able to get in there yeah yeah it makes sense it kind of sounds like something I think I would want to do be fun but just to try it just to try it there's no real blood right which is why I wouldn't pass out here okay what do you pass out I I haven't been around enough to know I've avoided it so I think I will just wait to get kids young man here and then then that happens okay let me take a ferry to to my mother so she was sitting on the kitchen counter and she is petrified of blocked okay for further but so very thought that it would be funny he went into the page around with red food dye on his hand holding a knife and say oh my gosh what happened so he does this my thought my mother was gonna have a heart attack she's like she starts screaming and then I'm hitting very like you know another fun evening at the commando radio yeah that's a great prank do you like basketball I love basketball then you're gonna love this story because here in the future we have a six foot ten inch humanoid robot called cue for the screen by Toyota and it had a presence predecessor Q. three but now there's the new one and through Q. three by the way I set a world record for basketball she made more than two thousand consecutive free throws get that more than two thousand configured for those but now Q. force here I had moved from the court on wheels picks up basketballs before shooting three pointers in do this by using built in sensors algorithms and radar that calculates the correct angle and how much force is necessary to make each shot you for shot threes before reason basketball all star game in Japan but don't expect it to show up at the next NBA draft it's because they're calling them basketball box or basket box made the kind of what we would you really want to watch a robot make two thousand consecutive throws I mean now I mean nowadays you just put the things by the yeah could you be anytime anybody would argue and say this is the best player you can go yeah statistically the best player it's not fair really yet yeah after plays it once are you ready for it Dunkin donuts

Whats Next for Bombardier?

"So could that happen? Could there be a could Canada which is subsidized this company in the past come through with an infusion of cash to pay off debts or subsidies. Those never had any ambition. Come it's interesting. The Canadian governments made it clear. They keep a close eye on this. I don't know if they would step in adding any sort of rescued. He wouldn't be risky deal. Because it's not a case of giving body now. It's kind of. It's kind of dumb but it had to do. Quebec SAYS NO WAY. And they're not gonNA do more but that the Mahdi will go back to them next because developing new airplanes that go to keep developing nuclear plant. Wildaid pay down their debt. So they'll be back to the government looking for looking for some sort of support and that's just fact of life so so what's the next bit actually gets wrapped up into the eight hundred ten day? Two Twenty story because it affects Embraer Number Casino. Random Body a arrivals that go back to the very beginnings of all of this so some really by by by giving selling the twenty in its entirety of and the twenty five percent is owned by Quebec itself. In Abbasi's now I was totally under the age of twenty before. This airbus was always constrained in what it could do to the airplane because Bombardier had to match investment and body didn't have the money right so so it was sort of official throttle book done with the eighty twenty. Well that's been moved right. That governor has been removed they can ramp up action which they have to do in order to break even and and get the cost of their into wary should be they can stretch airplane. They can now basically. They can pump money into the bottom end of the of the narrow body airliner market to twenty they could bunny at the top end of the narrowbody market with three twenty one. Xl Exit and they can literally take the legs off. And the head of Boeing in that market they now got in essence blank sheet to go do what they want to that market. Which we're Boeing at the moment doesn't know which way to go where to going out to take it even kill it and it would only have cost them less than six hundred million right because that's how much they paid. You have the whole program dinner. They have complete freedom moment. It seems to be an airplane that the market wants so if they can find customers push production rate up than than they've been so so that that. Then that then puts the pressure on Boeing and rare who earned in the middle of trying to put this commercial aviation joint venture together. 'cause that no held up by the Europeans who are still reviewing and delaying a decision. And so and it's becoming critical that makes it critical for Embraer. What happens next in the rumor that we think the reason the Europeans haven't proved it yet is because there's a W. T. O. Large airliner tariff dispute between America and Europe. Airbus and Boeing and that there's another decision coming in May or June and everybody's waiting to see what kind of penalties Europe applies against the US. And how President? Trump reacts to that and the belief is that the Europeans may be holding this approval of Ambler as leverage one piece of leverage against trump tariffs. And so. It's a big ugly mess that Doesn't seem to have an easy resolution really. It's become almost critical to embarrass. You know they. They had a successful commercial aviation business before they went into this plan. Joint Venture Boeing sort from Boeing. Side Ed at the generally accepted reasoning is they did this as a response to. Airbus become involved in the twenty. Didn't have a response to an airplane to compete against twenty. They tied up with ember who had an airplane. That's not quite the same. But it's but they could probably get into that market plus. They had a big engineering birth force that Boeing could access etc etc but the intervening months. That's how long it's been going now. This this whole thing of the joint venture things more more difficult going forward for because their next generation of Egypt's is not selling the way the previous generation dates. So they they're not commercial side. Their future is not as strong as it might have seemed a couple of years ago. They are trapped in same business jet conundrum that everybody else's which is they have some great products but they're selling to the same customers over and over again they're not really bringing new people into the market and they they have to launch a new airplane. They haven't engineering workforce doing a lot of the moment. They have to put money into a new airplane the daily way that they can do it. It's the existing market increased competitive pressure push the pricing down even further. So you're looking at at at body number. Even though they're sort of coming super doing it differently a facing exactly the same Prussia's so could they come on with me here is what call it what you want them? Bardy? Am Rear something like that. Heard it I rare but you won't pay for it. Looks absolutely fantastic. Because if you put the budget let you would have the entire business jet industry one company from the from the Lightest Jed to the biggest cabinet. But you know Cabestan the market you. Would you would not reduce competition whatsoever and you would fundamentally doubled down on your product development demands because this market needs new products on regular basis. This is not like L. Industry. We did develop an airliner and you can milk it for fifteen years the same basic airplane fifty years. Sometimes the long business aviation because you're constantly selling back to the same customer base the only way to get the mantle of airplane you just to them is by offering them a battery plant. So it's like a comedy. It's a five year cycle. It's like oh but it's more like a college cycle and go to continually Roy existing customer base out of what they fly into your next offering. So it's a constant investment draw and and putting together would look Winston traders fantastic. But it wouldn't it. Would not solve industry's issues with overcapacity too. Many models too many manufactures. But I just want to add one final point there. Which is if you're a government official. In in one of these countries there may be a certain appeal to them combining because of course for probably a near mid term. It would guarantee that the John's work remained in May not do anything to help Biz have but when you are responsible for national champion like rare. Rda You definitely don't want to see it go away. And that's different than I don't think anybody would call Gulfstream or textron Cessna products necessarily national champions. I'm not trying to. I'm not trying to bruise. Their Egos and say that. They're not great companies. But I don't think America looks at them the way that Brazil looks at Embraer. In Canada. Looks at bombarding.

Bombardier Shed Snowmobiles for Jets, Trains. Now, It's Giving Up Both.

"First story comes from Forbes. Airbus buys bombard. Ea Out of Commercial Aviation for five hundred ninety one million dollars so this is by Marisa Garcia one of my favorites aviation journalists in with this deal bombarded is fully exited the series slash a two twenty program. I think Eh everyone knows that. Airbus took fifty point zero one percent ownership of the program in two thousand seventeen but now with this deal bombarded gets five hundred ninety one million dollars with five hundred. Thirty one million of dollars paid at closing and then the The balanced the remaining sixty million dollars is to be paid in installments through Twenty Twenty One Bombarded says with his deal they avoid a roughly seven hundred million dollar payment that it would have to make to fund production expansion so I think that's That's some serious motivation to to sell the rest to two Airbus an individual era. I guess if absolutely it is but it it gets better because today to A. They announced that they're not getting rid of their business. Aviation a division in that. They've decided to sell their their rail Rail meaning cars with steel wheels. That travel on the ground but So it's been it's been pretty Pretty volatile for the from the bombard employees. A bet you they're well they're probably breathing somewhat easier but they don't breathe completely easier until this is all closed. But it's a good place to start. I was Kinda surprised on the move to sell the the rail part of the business. And and keep the the business aviation but I thought the plane was going to be just the opposite but I don't know maybe I'm the only one that got surprised by that. Well just kind of odd because they had already sold several other portions of their aviation business so it kind of looked like they were getting out of that. So you're right. This does seem like a reversal of sorts. Okay but don't you guys don't understand bombarded by you really don't all right David Hillis? Tell us about bombarded. It's all about the snowmobile. I think he's right. I mean nothing else matters to bombard ebay. But they're Canadian snowmobiles. I mean I think that I think we should recognize that. There's nothing more important to Canadians than maybe Snowmobiles and snow and whatever that sport is where they brushed the puck down the ice and all letters can be sent directly to David Dot Com. All the Canadian listeners may not be happy but hear about this. I bought bombard. Ea problem with Bombardier was they ended up diversifying way. Way Too much. And I joke about snowmobiles but they do make snowmobiles and trains and airplanes. And you can't have that sort of conglomeration of manufacturing and and keep it together for any length of time. I mean without without government. Subsidy so I I just a little bit. But there's some truth in jest that you know they might actually eventually only be down to snowmobiles. Even though I believe the rail division was still profitable. That's what I what I don't understand. Well they did matter of choosing I mean because they owes serious money to the financial institutions. Up there Although I don't know that they're all in Canada I'm sure they most of them are but I think I saw something today. That when the Rail Sector Deal closes they're they're going to get something like six billion dollars or or something to put up against the nine billion that they oh so to them it was again. I. I don't know that they would have gotten that kind of money for the For the business side. Yeah 'cause the are one that would probably want. It is is textron. Well funny should mention that David. I was just going to bring up. I agree with your comments about conglomerates getting into too many different businesses so I brought up the textron homepage just to see what other kinds of businesses they have. Besides aviation and they make the The cushman vehicles. They make easy. Go Golf Carts. They make Arctic cat snowmobiles. They've got Jacobson specialized TURF CARA vehicles for cutting grass In the list goes on and on and on so it is kind of interesting parallel that You know textron has a kind of a similarly diverse group of products and they are leader in the aviation industry. That being said. I don't know how we're doing how well they're doing. I'm sure it's probably varies by by business unit. But it's interesting. I mean. I have a helicopter in my restoration facility that was built by Kelvinator. The washing machine company. Okay so I get diversification Does your laundry for you as well right. The spin cycle really kind of interesting. Is that what they mean by spends now I know

"And so you're facing more risks than you would if you're an jet Komo News Points out God that in an interview with the Seattle Times both is vice president of flight operations John Hornibrook as as well as horizons president. Joe Sprague said that the distribution of the email should be seen as an example bowl of horizons. High Safety Standards There's a quote from the flight operations. VP hornibrook. He said the memo was meant to respond to the spike. We saw in irregular events Also I'm not sitting back and waiting for something bigger so I don't know if The flight operations guy in the president. start talking about this Because the memo was leaked leaked or because they intended to say. Hey look you know. We're we're looking at Data that suggests that we have a lax safety culture. So we're going to get ahead of this. I don't know but it's again i. I don't think I can ever remember hearing about an airline executive or two coming out and stating stating publicly that. Hey we have You know we we have a safety culture problem amongst our pilots and we need to address that I mean. Obviously if that's what chew thank you you do need to address it. But I don't know what the effect would be on the flying public. I mean would. Would you be a little less likely to have fly on Horizon Air. If you had a alternative no I. Wouldn't I flown them before. And I'll tell you in many cases you don't have an alternative because they are as serving smaller cities. I think I flew them out of Let me think southern Oregon Medford. I flew them for Medford to Portland one time. I don't know that you have any other service out of Medford than than Horizon Air And again I think that all airlines lines have from time to time spikes in a little operational incidents and you know the shows You know somebody trying to get out ahead of that because I think I think that it really is a good indicator if you start having these little tiny problems it's like whoa. You know that that could be symptomatic that if you don't reverse trends you could have something even worse off now I would continue to fly horizon personally and counts. Next course is is what happens next does horizon air take Jake Some actions to to address what they what they see as a potential problem. All right moving on This this came out there was reported in Kit. Planes Dot com a an email came out from EA free admission for ages eighteen and under at EA Air Venture Oshkosh twenty twenty. which I this was a a real good news news of an item to come across? I think I love every aspect about the story You know for example Jack Pelton talks about how they did. Have you've some reduced admissions this past year which I didn't realize For students in that as a result they saw an increased number of families coming to air venture and so now by making it totally free for kids eighteen and under. Yeah I bet a lot more families are GONNA go. I think that there may have been some people interested in aviation who you either didn't go because they couldn't bring the kids or you know went without the kids because it was going to be more expensive. This is just a fabulous solution. And I'd really like to point out that Boeing is partially responsible for this. It's great to see a good news. Story about Boeing. Boeing is subsidizing. The cost of these a tickets for eighteen year olds and under that will now be free. And I I think Boeing his got it right. You know we've got engaged. The next generation nation in aviation. We've gotta get them next to airplanes. We've gotta get them excited about aviation we've got to show them that. Hey this is a possible career path and if people don't see you know people like them doing particular avocation so it's hard for them to imagine that. Oh Yeah I too could be an aviation and mechanic or a pilot or flight attendant or any of the you know many careers that are available in the aviation industry. So I just you know Oh hats off to a Jack Pelton. Ea Boeing what a great story. Yeah this I I I agree. I love seeing this kind of thing. And it's It's an investment in the future. And large companies like Boeing. And this is not a dig at Boeing because this applies almost every large corporation but but There's often a reluctance to spend money on things that don't have more of an immediate return. This doesn't may not really have an immediate return but it's good for the industry and I think Boeing is to be commended for participating in this way and for the. EA working with Boeing. I'm sure to make this happen here. Venture Oshkosh this year or not this year next year. Twenty Twenty Is July twentieth through twenty six. And I'm planning on being there Max t you're probably planning on being there. Oh Yeah I'll bring my fake doc. I deal that says I'm seventeen. How about you? David don't know yet or not. Sure I haven't gotten that far are you. Can I get to get through the holidays. I suggest of course you want me to make an ID for you to yeah please no words my ideal shave my beard before I go the right. Yeah they they might be onto us. Let me just mention real quick on this to that in in our slack team in. You've heard US talk about that many many times. Probably every episode If you are not in there it's organized is into what are called channels different topic areas and We we continue to have a channel that's EA air venture oshkosh and it's a great place for you guys the community here to interact with respect to this event who's going. I mean what are you doing. You know Getting together with other airplane geeks listeners or other friends things like that advice on Where to stay or anything like that any any conversation about Oshkosh can Take Place in that slack channel. So if you're you're not in our slack team yet and would like to join US Sundays. Knee male Geeks at airplane GEEKS DOT COM will get you hooked up with slack next Stidham. KANSAS DOT COM textron filing gives more insight into forthcoming layoffs. So I guess Textron Textron aviation announced some upcoming layoffs or announced that there would be layoffs under a restructuring plan but they didn't provide any details is about the size of the workforce reduction but I guess it turns out. There's another way to get a clue as to how many layoffs Textron is planning and it came through these curious and Exchange Commission. Apparently textron filed a report within which among other things said that they plan to eliminate roughly fleet. Eight hundred and seventy-five positions now textron is a conglomerate with a lot of different divisions the document talked about changes to some of the different segments. And by just to give you an idea what they make besides in assessments and Beechcraft and so on textron makes lawnmowers. ATV's snowmobiles plastic take products including fuel systems. Unfortunately apparently all of these layoffs are in the aviation sector Of course no matter doesn't matter which sector in it's unfortunate. If you get laid off I would have to guess that Part of this is because of the consolidation of Beechcraft Beechcraft We go back. Can't remember how long it's been. It's been a couple years at this point assessment bought Beechcraft and you'd have to imagine that there's some overlap and I'm sure they eliminate some of those positions soon after the initial Acquisition but they probably found some additional areas where they can consolidate the other possibility in this way. I wouldn't be surprised at all. It could be that their business is slowing a little bit. And they don't need the number of people that they currently have. The aviation industry is just horrendously. Cyclical if you look at employment in any OEM That makes aircraine airframes. Your yeah the cycles up in cycles down I have seen some data over the last four to five months that says that Used aircraft craft sales are slowing and that they use aircraft are on the market for longer periods of time before they sell. I kind of wonder if you know that isn't into sign that perhaps Purchase of aircraft or slowing down a little bit probably have to look at the gamma reports at the end of this year and see. Hey was there any. You know softness softness that showed up during the year for a new airplane purchases but certainly in the US market that activists slowing down a little bit all which is to say And you know this could be a little bit of a a slowdown in sales for For Cessna Hawker and Beechcraft which are all owned by Textron. Of course The difficult thing with these kinds of restructurings is that the company doesn't want to overreact. You can't just toss people out and then turn around and pull them all back in You know at some later date people move on on You know you also have issues with maintaining the skills of the workforce when you kind of I'll say jerk people in and out but According according to the SEC filing they say the plan will improve overall operating efficiency through headcount reductions facility consolidations and other actions actions and that the severance and other related costs associated with headcount reduction Her estimated to be the range of forty to forty five million dollars. and which is. That's that seems kind of low two meals based on restructurings I've seen in the past but in any event a very interesting aspect of this to me anyway is that it says what we anticipate that the restructuring plan will be substantially benchley completed by the end of twenty nineteen. That's just a few weeks away. Yeah that means a lot of people are going to get laid off at Christmas time which I think wonderful. Yeah I I mean. It's tough to get laid off at any time of year but I think it's particularly sad for everybody. Involved is supposed to be such a happy time of year. People often have higher expenses at Christmas time. and to kind of Find out that you have a job. That's a real kind of kick in the stomach so it's Yeah is all the way round. Also I think think Cessnas businesses very heavily concentrated in Wichita I know they do have a facility down in southern Kansas and independence. Ah they've got far fewer people that location so I think this is going to hit wichita up particularly hard. Textron is their largest employer So yeah this is. This is just bad news for the the city is well. You figure you lose a thousand jobs. Boy That's GonNa that's GonNa Affect several thousand additional people both the people who are members of the family as well as local businesses that don't sell as many lunches at lunchtime and things like that. So that's unfortunately just gotTa propagates all the way through the local economy and this is pretty bad news for the city of Wichita to some extent independence as well. Yeah I think textron may maybe the second largest employer in which I think spirit aerosystems has The few more employees okay but in any event Yeah it's No one likes to be laid off around Christmas time. No all right next up. This is from the Washington Post Northern Virginia based surveillance firm picks up airlines signals to save time and fuel over Atlantic and this is about Arianne and they provide provide the global air a global air traffic surveillance system.

Sales are up one point seven percent year over year, not as good as the industry up. Six point one, however, earnings per share are up ninety two percent. When the initially down fifty six percent.

Helpful of course, by today's plunging oil may hit the one performer in this sector. And can I just say that when a stocks up that much on a down day like this have incredible straight. Now, the big worry for the allies. There's always capacity whenever the industry starts doing well, somebody buys him punching new planes and the airlines. What are they? Do? They start competing on price wrecking the margins. But as we learn the last time we spoke with you as a CEO Oscar, Munoz, the company won't be play this game around this time.

If you own a vehicle may go to the phone lines. And it's get kale allowing the morning Cal. Hey, how're you doing? Let me ask you a question. What time I will get numb knuckle Nina gas stations out getting cheap gas, people call it in in product gas on the light came on. Then I Scott paranoid. And that's used in set rounding the light went out. Now, let me ask you a question. My friend used to do it for gas. And he said all gas at the same except for office eighty nine ninety two or whatever those numbers a different. But he's basically all the gas stations are the same as far as you know. I would ask you what is Chevron with Textron? What is Textron tech run is a oil additive is a detergent, they add to the oil, your friend is. Absolutely, right. If you go over there off a boat and roll Indiana week there are fuel storage tanks over there right up to it. If I haven't Bolton road, and you will see quick trip drug pull Chevron pull 'em co Emiko. She'll everybody come out as same get the gas from the same place. So right other than the eighty nine ninety one. He's absolutely correct. What what some spaces do as they put a detergent in the fuel. So when those trucks that come the difference is they have a switch and and another bladder in those carriers that have a detergent in it. What is designed to do is a as your vehicle is burning the gas, though, detergents clean off your fuel injectors, and it it cleans off their carbon buildup whenever you said, you have a take a met and hold to something metal whatever. And you see the black residue that gets on it. So that's what happens to your fuel injectors as it's burning. So you get that that build a reservoir. You're feeling die..

"Remember when it was okay for doctors to smoke in the hospital you. Kidding yeah when I first came, here and there were a couple of doctors who were just chain smoker they'd be dictating and then, have a cigarette there and lay it. Down and then they go on and, one of the doctors was absolutely hilarious. He. Used to he was a friend of mine, and? I thought the world of him he passed away not long ago but he smoked everywhere including he would walk into. The coronary care. Unit, oxygen and. Everything in there but he carried the cigarette, behind him so he, had he had. The cigarette he'd be walking down the hall it Yep so the cigarette was, just over his. Buttocks right and there will, be this. Plume of smoke going up in the air and somehow he thought nobody seeing that, cigarette oh my gosh yes really terrible so we Had? The bait one time at the medical staff meeting about whether or not that should be allowed right and he he. Was outvoted he. Was, totally irate. Over it Just, you know taking her civil rights away nobody's, ever had a problem with this before right, so and and a wonderful. Credible, guy he was too yeah but you know he just had. A. Different feeling about it and he also was a little bit older so he'd grown up and okay. And. I can't, remember when professors. Would smoke in the hospital yeah You know. Like oh jeez how could that be I mean I never ever felt that was right and, I never smoked myself either yeah I never I never had much feeling about an have any sympathy for those rules. That came, into play yeah the nationwide ban on smoking, in public housing, and the facility takes effect at the end. Of July beginning July thirty first but one of the conversations. Dr Galician I had during the break was not far from here just maybe a half mile away from where we're recording the. Show and we do the, show is the aircraft company of course? Textron Textron Cessna Beechcraft right here. Over here and there's I it took me a while to come by they're on the way to the, show or, on the neighborhood I'd probably. When you go home doctor Galicia there's a, gaggle, of, people across the street from the. Aircraft's property all. Huddled, around and I, said to myself what did they know the, next time there's an more people out there, they physically have to be. Off, the property of the aircraft company across the street on a. Medium Were they can? Enjoy their cigarette that's how stringent. I guess my point is it has got in the corporate world on how they feel about smoking Well people, are just getting smarter you know and also corporations pay for healthcare costs right so. Do you want, people frequently admitted with bronchitis pneumonia emphysema heart attacks all these things evolved from smoking strokes as well But. Here's what I don't like I don't like e cigarettes why would they leave those in. Yeah I can't understand that I mean? Everything, that you look at now says boy these things are not. Good, for you there they emit smoke that can't be good for a second hand, events and, they're expensive why leaving do it now. Chewing. Snuff well I'll tell you what chewing snuff is, another, risky business deal, look how many people we seen movie stars and Baseball, players especially baseball players sometimes famous baseball players who died because of cancer of the throat right, or cancer of the mouth or cancer of the tongue sure and so you know I. Don't know I guess it's it would be impossible. To, control snuff ingest it really is. It. Sure wouldn't be hard the find out who's using a cigarette even though electric cigarettes, are considered today to be, the least harmful replacement for regular. Cigarettes reading a study off. Of this they still pose dangerous when, misused e cigarettes vapor is ninety. Nine percent cleaner than tobacco. Smoke but vapors can still become? Ill, from an overdose of. Nicotine by, vaping for too long thus inhaling too, much, nicotine in a single session otherwise it's. Still nicotine as you say yeah and I don't think we know yet what it does. In terms of causing cancer the long? Right, or emphysema and some of these other things and it also..
