Airbus A220 airliner wins approval from Transport Canada for 180 minutes ETOPS capability.
The newest addition to the Airbus family of commercial aircraft, the A220, has received 180-minute extended operations (ETOPS*) approval from the Canadian civil aviation authority, Transport Canada. This achievement paves the way for A220 customers to start new direct non-limiting routings over water, remote or underserved regions. “This A220 ETOPS milestone adds to the numerous performance capabilities which the unbeatable A220 Family already offers,” said Florent Massou, Head of Airbus’ A220 Programme. “Being the only in-production aircraft in its class capable of performing both steep approach and long-range operations, the A220 is definitely unlocking new route opportunities for airlines,” added Rob Dewar, Head of Engineering and Customer Support, A220 Programme.
The A220 is the first commercial airliner to obtain domestic ETOPS certification from Transport Canada. This capability is available as an option for A220-100 and A220-300 operators, enabling them to fly for up to 180-minutes from the nearest diversion airport.
As the only aircraft purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market, the A220 delivers unbeatable fuel efficiency and true widebody comfort in a single-aisle aircraft. The aircraft brings together state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines to offer at least a 20% lower fuel burn per seat compared to previous generation aircraft. With a range of up to 3,200 nautical miles (5,920 km), the A220 offers the performance of larger single aisle aircraft.
With an order book of over 537 aircraft to date, the A220 has all the credentials to win the lion’s share of the 100- to 150-seat aircraft market.

Today’s Nurtured Nursing Student is Anita! @aninursing 🌼
"Hello, my name is Anita! I’m a first year BScN student in Edmonton, Canada. I’ve learned so much this semester and I’ve fallen in love with nursing!
Unlike so many people, I can’t say there was one moment that led me to nursing. I care about everyone and want to make a difference in people’s lives, so I always knew I wanted to be in health care. But I wanted options. Upon researching future careers in high school, I realized nursing could do that for me and I was eager to learn more. This semester has opened my eyes to the amazing science and art of nursing. My inspiring professors have made me confident I've made the right choice. Now, I know I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. To care for people when they are the most vulnerable is the most humane thing you can do, and I know it is my calling.
While I don’t know what I want to specialize in yet, I’m very interested in critical care such as ICU or PICU. I can’t wait to experience so many different areas throughout these next 4 years of school. I believe I’m confident and trust in my leadership traits so something that is fast-paced really intrigues me. My dream for the future is to pursue my Masters and be a Nurse Practitioner!
I've learned nursing school is not something you can get through without nurturing yourself. I found comfort in my old routines such as shopping with my mom, going out with friends, and more. Just getting out, being in good company with people who inspire me, and taking my mind off deadlines even for a few hours just reminds me that I can’t let university consume me. I need to live and enjoy these moments because I’ll never get them back. We’re dedicating our lives to caring for others and we can’t forget to do that for ourselves!"

Many of you have admitted that there is something biological that sets off when June 16 rolls around, but come April , there’s lots of great streams that open, with bull trout, and brown trout, so we actually don’t have to wait as long as we thought 🤷🏻♂️
