Aviation Week & Space Technology June 16, 2014

Volume 176 Number 20

This week, Aviation Week publishes two editions. On the cover far left, an Allegiant Air Boeing 757 lands at Las Vegas. Allegiant’s financially successful ultra-low-cost business model has been based on flying older MD-80s, but in recent years it has added newer types, such as the 757 (see page 42).

Elsewhere in both editions are reports on upset recovery training (page 51), Google’s space investments (page 34) and UAS in civil airspace (page 26).
