Boeing Receives Official Certificates for 787 World Records

Jonathan Gaffney, president and CEO of the National Aeronautic Association, presented Boeing (NYSE: BA) with two certificates confirming the official status of the two world records earned by the 787 Dreamliner in late 2011.
The airplane earned records for completing the longest flight for an airplane in its weight class (440,924 to 551,155 lbs.) with a 10,336 nmi (19,142 km) flight to Dhaka, Bangladesh. This record had previously been held by the Airbus A330 with a 9,126 nmi (16,901 km) flight in 2002.

Following refueling in Dhaka, the crew continued eastbound and returned to Seattle 42 hours and 26 minutes after their initial departure, completing the fastest around-the-world trip for the same weight class at 470 knots (871 km/h). There was no previous around-the-world speed record for this weight class.
Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, welcomed Gaffney to an informal ceremony in Everett attended by more than 2,000 employees.

"These world records demonstrate what we have been saying about the 787 all along – it is a world-class product. The airlines told us they wanted an airplane that was fuel-efficient, durable and capable," said Albaugh. "That's what we are delivering with the Dreamliner."

Gaffney told employees, "Around-the-world records are extremely challenging, and Boeing should be very proud of the successful world and national records they achieved with these flights.  We were proud to have had the opportunity to record and certify them."

He presented the certificates to two of the six pilots who flew the record-setting missions. Capt. Rod Skaar led the crew, which included former 787 chief pilot Capt. Mike Carriker.

"It's an honor to receive these certificates on behalf of all of the men and women of The Boeing Company," said Skaar. "It takes an amazing amount of talent and perseverance to create an all-new airplane. A lucky few of us get to fly the airplane. We are always well aware that we are carrying the pride of the entire company as we go."
Boeing 787 Dreamliner The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner is the first airplane to provide both long distance capabilities with mid-size capacity (210-250 passengers in a three-class seating), allowing airlines to open new, non-stop routes preferred by the traveling public. The airplane is 20 percent more fuel efficient than similarly sized airplanes. Fifty-nine customers have 865 Dreamliners on order. The first five 787s have been delivered to ANA (All Nippon Airways) and are performing well in services.
National Aeronautic Association
The National Aeronautic Association is the oldest national aviation organization in the United States. A non-profit association, NAA is "dedicated to the advancement of the art, sport and science of aviation in the United States," according to its Mission Statement.

St. Pete Beach's Alden Suites Undergoes Renovation

St. Pete Beach Resort, Alden Suites, has undergone a $400,000 renovation of its Gulf Front Suites, formerly known as the Lanai Suites.  The renovation is part of the resort's ongoing commitment to allocating $400,000-$500,000 for capital improvements each year.

Alden Suites officials say the goal of these planned renovations is to improve the resort experience for visitors.

The recent renovation of the Gulf Front Suites, which involved adding new furniture, solid wood cabinets, beds, flat screen televisions, carpets, window treatments, and coverlets, will enhance Alden Suites' AAA Three Diamond Rating.

To be approved for this seal of quality, properties must first meet 27 essential requirements based on member expectations of cleanliness, comfort, security and safety. Three Diamond Ratings are reserved for properties that are multifaceted with a distinguished style, including marked upgrades in the quality of physical attributes, amenities and level of comfort.

The resort will invest an additional $300,000 in upgrades this year with the addition of flat screen televisions and new sofas to their 45 Poolside 1-Bedroom Suites (formerly known as the Nassau Suites), and new wood cabinets in 42 of the Gulf Front suites.  Exterior upgrades will include a new 12-person, state of the art hot tub which will be three times larger than the existing one, newly resurfaced/renovated tennis courts, and parking lot improvements.

Renovations follow a resort-wide rebranding effort, which was introduced to the public in January 2012—complete with new name, logo, messaging and corporate identity packaging. While numerous upgrades will be taking place, the resort will not be closed at any time, and will accommodate over 100,000 visitors this year.
