The modern aircraft carrier is without doubt one of the most exciting and hazardous operating environments in the field of warfare. The 'flattop' is a symbol of global military power without parallel, and it remains a capability beyond reach of all but the most well equipped navies. With the detail, precision and accuracy expected of Harpia Publishing, this latest volume provides a force report of the various air components and associated vessels fielded by those select nations that field fixed-wing-capable aircraft carriers.

The debate on the future of the aviation sector and the viability of its traditional business practices is the core of this book. The liberalization of the EU market in the 1990s has radically modi?ed the competitive environment and the nature of airline competition. Furthermore, the new millennium began with terrorist attacks, epidemics, trade globalization, and the rise of oil prices, all of which combined to push the industry into a “perfect storm”. Airline industry pro?tability has been an elusive goal for several decades and the recent events has only accentuated existing weaknesses. The main concern of ind- try observers is whether the airline business model, successful during the 1980s and 1990s, is now sustainable in a market crowded by low-cost carriers. The airlines that will respond rapidly and determinedly to increase pressure to restructure, conso- date and segment the industry will achieve competitive advantages. In this context, the present study aims to model the new conduct of the ‘legacy’ carriers in a new liberalized European market in terms of network and pricing competition with l- cost carriers and competitive reaction to the global economic crises.

In the post-1945 era, the aircraft carrier has remained a valued weapon despite the development of nuclear weapons, cruise and ballistic missiles, and highly capable submarines. At times, as in the early days of the Korean and Vietnam Wars and in the Falklands conflict, carriers alone could deploy high-performance aircraft to the battlefield. In other operations, such as enforcing the no-fly zones and the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, only carriers could provide the bases needed for sustained combat and support operations. This second volume of Norman Polmar's landmark study details the role of carriers in the unification of the U.S. armed forces and strategic deterrence, fiscally constrained Great Britain, the development of British Commonwealth and ex-colonial navies, and the efforts of France and the Netherlands to rebuild their fleets. The role of the modern carrier-nine nations currently possess them-is discussed, as are the issues confronting nations that might acquire them. Chapters on the Soviet Union's effort to produce carriers are included for the first time. The development of both carrier planes and the many "oddball" aircraft that have flown from carriers-such as the U-2 spy plane-are also examined. Appendixes include comprehensive data on all carriers built and converted through 2006. This volume is a valuable companion to the critically acclaimed Volume I, which covers aircraft carrier development and operations from 1909 to 1945.

Air Transport in the 21st Century

Airlines are buffeted by fluctuating political and economic landscapes, ever-changing competition, technology developments, globalization, increasing deregulation and evolving customer requirements. As a consequence all sectors of the air transport industry are in a constant state of flux. The principle aim of this book is to review current trends in the airline industry and its related suppliers, thereby providing an insight into the forces that are changing its dynamics. The factors that are reshaping the structure of the industry are examined with a view to identifying the key issues whose impact will be critical in the future. The book features two very distinct sections. The first contains short contributions from industry executives at CEO/VP level from airlines, aircraft/engine manufacturers, safety and navigational provider organisations, who have set out their take of where the airline industry is heading. This commercial input sets the scene for the book and provides the bridge to the second section, which is composed of 18 chapters written by distinguished academic authors. Each chapter presents a valuable insight into a specific area of the air transport industry, including: airlines, airports, cargo, deregulation, the environment, navigation, strategy, information technology, security and tourism. The shared objective of the authors is to describe and explain the core competencies that are determining the current shape of the industry and to examine the forces that will change its direction going forward. The book is written in a management style and will appeal to all levels of personnel who work for airlines across the world. It is also written for airport authorities, aerospace manufacturers, regulatory and government transportation agencies, researchers and students of aviation management, transport studies, tourism and the wider air transport industry.

Russian/Soviet Aircraft Carrier & Carrier Aviation Design & Evolution Volume 2 In 2017, there were five Russian/Soviet designed and built aircraft carriers in existence, three of which were in operational service - the Project 1143.5 Aircraft Carrying Heavy Cruiser Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union, Kuznetsov in Russian Federation naval service, the INS Vikramaditya (formerly the Project 1143.4 Heavy Aircraft Carrying Cruiser Baku/Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union, Gorshkov) in Indian naval service and the incomplete former Soviet Project 1143.6 Aircraft Carrying Heavy Cruiser Varyag in service with the Peoples Liberation Army Navy of China as the Liaoning. The other two aircraft carriers, the Project 1143/.2 Kiev and Minsk Heavy Aircraft Carrying Cruisers had been decommissioned and formed museum exhibits in China. This two volume series sets out to detail the stable of Russian/Soviet designed and built significant aircraft carrying vessels and their respective shipborne aviation assets. Volume 1 focused on the design genesis of the major aircraft carrying vessels of the Imperial Russian and Soviet periods, which included Seaplane Carriers, the Project 1123 Moskva Class Anti-Submarine Warfare Helicopter Carrying Cruisers and the Project 1143-1143.4 Kiev and Improved Kiev Class Heavy Aircraft Carrying Cruisers, as well as a number of early and mid-20th century aviation carrying projects. This second volume focusses on the stable of conventional take-off and landing aircraft carriers of the late 20th century and early 21st century periods - the Project 1143.5 Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union, Kuznetsov, the Project 1143.6 Varyag, the nuclear powered Project 1143.7 Ul'yanovsk, as well as the unrealised concepts - the Project 1153 and Project 1160 nuclear powered conventional take-off and landing aircraft carriers and the projected 21st century Project 23000E nuclear powered anti-submarine warfare/attack carrier. Separate chapters deal with the various rotary wing and fixed wing aviation assets that would make up the air groups of the Project 1143.5 Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union, Kuznetsov and the modified Project 1143.4 INS Vikramaditya. All technical information regarding the warships, systems and weapons has been provided by the respective design houses, developers, builder/manufacturers and operators, as has much of the photographic and graphic material used throughout the volume. The volume is also supported by textual, photographic and graphic material from third party sources, including the defence and intelligence services of various NATO nations and the historical archives of various United States and United Kingdom government agencies.
