I've just started being a mentor, and if I click on the email link to look at the request, the blue button says "approve request". I would suggest more correct wording, since I would personally be taking on the mentee by clicking the link, would be "accept request".

under office bases, now I have 10 bases, at the very bottom it says

You cannot open any more base airports since you already operate from maximum number of allowed bases.

should be

Same when you're an alliance manager. "Confirm request" would be something the applicant would do.

This is an English grammar correction, not a typo correction.

Fuel hedges

Your airline may protect against rising fuel prices by purchasing fuel hedges from the financial markets. Hedging fuel is basically like an insurance where you buy certain amount of your daily fuel usage with at a fixed price, and pay a fee of for that service to the supplier.

Hedging fuel is optional. If you predict that fuel prices will rise over time, hedging usually saves you money. However you may lose substantial amounts of money if your prediction about future fuel prices is not correct.

"EMB 110 is a general purpose 15-21 passenger twin-turboprop light transport aircraft. The P2A variant is the fourth passenger version of the model with capacity for 21 passengers."

says 21 but default and max are both 20 pax in MT.

Security staff labor union decided to go on major strike at Phoenix - Sky Harbor (KPHX / PHX) in demands for better wages and improved working conditions.

The strike will last three days and causes delays and cancellations to air traffic.

===================

I would suggest all strikes are MAJOR, seeing the word in the article and the title sounds nonsensical. Maybe I'm being too picky? ;-)

description in Viscount 800F
"The Viscount is a medium-range British turboprop airliner designed in late 1940s / early 1950s. It is the first turboprop aircraft to enter service in the world. The 800 series is the stretched version of the 700 series particulary suitable for high-density shorthaul routes. The Viscount 800F has all the end-line production improvements of other newer variants and bares the Mk 541 dart engines. It is the cargo conversion variant of the 800 series."

bares should be bears. Or even better "is powered by Mk 521 Dart engines"

in world news

"A storm caused blackout at XXX"

would be much better as

"A storm has caused a blackout at XXX"

Ilyshim 18GR announcement.


Ilyushin has made available a conversion option for Ilyushin Il-18B & Ilyushin Il-18V & Ilyushin Il-18E & Ilyushin Il-18D & Ilyushin Il-18A.

These models can now be converted as Ilyushin Il-18GR.

The main features of the Ilyushin Il-18GR model are as follows:
Cargo capacity: 138.97 m3 / 4 908 cu.ft
Range: 1790 nm
The Il-18 is a large turboprop airliner resembling the Lockheed L-188 Electra. The Il-18GR is an all-cargo (Freighter) variant. It is converted from a standard Il-18D.


The first sentence mentions 5 models that can be converted, the last sentence states only the 18D can be converted. I suggest the last sentence be corrected.
