CubCrafters-Built Aircraft Successfully Lands on Helipad on Iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai

Pilot lands Fixed Wing Carbon Cub airplane on a 78-foot diameter helipad located on top of the 56 story building

CubCrafters, March 14, 2023

Pilot successfully lands a fixed wing Carbon Cub aircraft on one of the world’s most iconic buildings, the Burj Al Arab hotel, in Dubai, UAE

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, March 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire – CubCrafters, in collaboration with Red Bull and extreme sports promotor XDubai, has achieved an unprecedented milestone in aviation by successfully landing a fixed wing Carbon Cub aircraft on the heliport of one of the world’s most iconic buildings, the Burj Al Arab hotel, in Dubai, UAE.

The Bulls Eye landing event featured Red Bull Air Race pilot and Carbon Cub owner Luke Czepiela landing a specially modified version of CubCrafters bestselling aircraft on a 27-meter wide helipad suspended 212 meters above sea level atop the 56-story hotel.

“All big moments start with little ideas powered by imagination and the desire to create something special,” stated Patrick Horgan, CubCrafters’ President & CEO. “Red Bull has done many projects over the years that have inspired aviators worldwide, so we were honored to join them on this project to demonstrate the incredible capabilities of the kinds of aircraft our company designs and manufactures.”

As Michał Graczyk, Aviation Project Manager for the event explained, “To ensure success, we wanted the airplane best suited to the challenge, and CubCrafters was the obvious choice. They have a long history of innovation and industry leadership, relentless research and development, and an impeccable reputation for the quality of their aircraft. These attributes made us very confident in choosing them as our partner for this event.”

“Throughout the years, CubCrafters’ brand has grown to be synonymous with an adventure lifestyle, and giving pilots the ability to land our airplanes in the most challenging environments is core to our mission,” said Brad Damm, CubCrafters’ Vice President. “This project, two years in the planning and execution, really pushes the limits of what a best-of-class STOL aircraft, and an extremely capable and dedicated pilot, can achieve.”

Renowned bush pilot, aviation engineer, and YouTube personality, Mike Patey, also joined the CubCrafters technical team for the project. Mike, a Carbon Cub owner himself, customized some of the aircraft’s features to help ensure a successful outcome. “It was a pretty simple formula. We cut weight, changed the C.G. to increase the effectiveness of the brakes, and added extra horsepower,” said Mike. “I’m really proud of how the airplane performed. The Carbon Cub was a great choice to start with, and we made it even better for this event.”

“Working with CubCrafters and Mike Patey to prepare the airplane for this event has been a true pleasure,” declared pilot Luke Czepiela. “During the training and preparation, I developed full confidence in the aircraft and its unique capabilities that enabled me to successfully accomplish this mission.”

SPECIAL THANKS TO

Special thanks to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President & Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, along with the Government of Dubai, the Dubai CAA, the Jumeirah company, and the Burj Al Arab hotel for the leadership, permissions, and access necessary to make this inspiring aviation project possible.

Philips and Gibraltar Health Authority announce 16-year strategic partnership, transforming patient imaging and cardiac care at St Bernard’s Hospital

March 07, 2023

For the first time, patients will no longer need to travel abroad for treatment of acute cardiac diseases, as the Gibraltar Health Authority prepares to provide local coronary angiography and angioplasty services in a new interventional cardiac suite

Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Gibraltar – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, and the Gibraltar Health Authority, today announced they have signed a long-term strategic partnership continuing their long-standing relationship and marking ambitions to advance radiology and cardiology patient care. As part of the agreement, the building of a brand-new interventional cardiac suite (cath lab) will commence later this year. The construction and installation of this specialist equipment will take approximately 9-12 months and will be accompanied by a service agreement to ensure ongoing maintenance of the equipment.

Gibraltar’s newly improved services will bring sustainable benefits for patients at St Bernard’s Hospital, with developments expected to lead to more cardiac patients receiving local treatment, instead of traveling across the border to neighboring Spain. Expected clinical outcomes include reduced length of stays for such patients, relieving pressure on demand for hospital beds and ambulance transport services, and improvement in 30-day mortality rates.

The new interventional suite will bring St Bernard’s Hospital’s services up to full operating capacity, allowing more patients to receive a range of cardiology treatments such as coronary angioplasty, catheterization to treat artery blockages and minimally invasive replacement of heart valves. In parallel, existing Philips systems within the hospital will be upgraded with the latest technology, including the replacement of equipment in two X-ray rooms, a fluoroscopy room for real-time moving X-ray imagery and ultrasound systems. As part of the agreement, a new CT system will reduce downtime and delays in diagnostics whilst creating opportunities for St Bernard’s cardiology and radiology teams to further expand services. This could see the Gibraltar Health Authority continue to bring care closer to home for future patients, such as through the availability of coronary CT scanning.

“This new chapter in our partnership with the Gibraltar Health Authority will give both clinicians and the community of Gibraltar access to innovative technologies beyond the next decade,” said Mark Leftwich, Managing Director for Philips UK and Ireland. “For the first time, clinical staff will be able to manage acute cardiac diseases, such as heart attacks, in a purpose-built suite, whilst Philips imaging systems and informatics will enable faster scanning time and enhanced collaboration. This will help create more efficiency and capacity within the departments and improved image quality will support safer diagnosis.”

Professor Patrick Geoghegan OBE, Director General Gibraltar Health Authority said: “We are delighted to renew and strengthen our relationship with Philips with this new partnership. The impact that this new diagnostic equipment will have on our operation and on the quality of care we will be able to provide for our community is huge. Gibraltar Health Authority continues to strive to provide the best healthcare to the people of Gibraltar.”

China Focus: China’s new premier confident in economy, pledges greater opening up

China’s new premier on Monday voiced full confidence in the country’s economic outlook despite challenges and pledged to further expand opening up regardless of external changes. Citing the many factors of uncertainty and instability facing the world economy, Premier Li Qiang told reporters that stabilizing economic growth is a challenging task not just for China but for all countries in the world this year. It is “no easy task and requires redoubled efforts” to achieve the economic growth target of around 5 percent in 2023 on a high base of economic output and amid new challenges, Li told a press conference held after the conclusion of the first session of the 14th National People’s Congress, the national legislature of China. However, the premier said China’s development is supported by multiple advantages, including a vast market, a complete industrial system, abundant human resources, solid foundation for development, and most importantly, notable institutional strength. “I believe the Chinese economy will brave the wind and waves and sail toward a brighter future. I’m full of confidence in that,” he said, noting that the Chinese economy has been stabilizing and picking up in the past two months. PURSUE PROGRESS WHILE ENSURING STABILITY China will keep to the general principles of prioritizing stability and pursuing progress while ensuring stability, and push for a turnaround in the country’s overall economic performance this year, Li told reporters. PEOPLE-CENTERED DEVELOPMENT Li said the ultimate aim of the work of the Party and the government is to improve the well-being of the people, vowing efforts in various sectors concerning the people’s livelihood from employment to rural development. With 11.58 million college graduates expected to enter the workforce this year, China will continue to pursue an employment-first strategy and increase support in terms of employment services and technical training, the premier said. Li said rural revitalization should be advanced across the board, and that different localities should develop the countryside based on their local conditions. The country will further increase its grain production capacity by focusing on arable land and seeds, Li said, noting that China’s food security is “well guaranteed on the whole.” “The government will make sure that the rice bowls of 1.4 billion Chinese people will always be firmly held in our own hands,” he told the press. The premier also pledged efforts to strengthen government building by further transforming government functions and improving its efficiency and conduct. He encouraged officials at all levels to engage more with local communities to learn about what the people need and seek their opinions on the work of the government. “They need to learn from the people and help the people at the grassroots solve problems,” he said. DOOR TO OPEN WIDER This year marks the 45th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up, which has not only developed China but also influenced the world, Li said. He said China will further expand opening up this year in alignment with high-standard international trade rules, opening its door wider to the world with better business environment and services. “Opening up is a basic state policy of China, and no matter how the external situation evolves, China will stick to pursuing this policy,” the premier told the press, saying that China welcomes investors from all over the world. China has remained a favored destination for global investment, Li said, citing statistics that foreign direct investment into the Chinese mainland, in actual use, reached a record high of more than 189 billion U.S. dollars in 2022. Commenting on China-U.S. relations, the premier refuted the hype in the United States on “decoupling” with China, saying that the two countries can and must cooperate and will achieve a lot by working together. “Encirclement and suppression are in no one’s interests,” he said, noting that the two countries are closely intertwined economically and have both benefited from the other side’s development. PROMOTE CROSS-STRAIT EXCHANGES, SUPPORT HK, MACAO On cross-Strait cooperation and communication, Li said the early restoration of normal exchanges and regular cooperation between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait is a shared aspiration and requires joint efforts of both sides. The Chinese mainland will continue to promote economic and cultural exchanges and cooperation across the Strait on the basis of the one-China principle and the 1992 Consensus, Li noted, expressing the hope that more Taiwan compatriots and businesses will come to the mainland. “We hope they are not just willing to come to the mainland, but also able to integrate into the local communities and achieve better development,” Li said. The premier also voiced confidence in the prospects of Hong Kong and Macao, saying that the two regions will enjoy an even brighter future as the central government will give them full support in integrating into the country’s overall development, growing their economy, improving people’s livelihood, and further building their global competitiveness. “On stability, the emphasis will be placed on ensuring stable growth, employment and prices, and the key to seeking progress lies in making new advancement in high-quality development,” he said. China will make good use of policy combinations in the areas of leveraging macro policies, expanding demand, advancing reform and innovation, and preventing and defusing risks, according to the premier. He also vowed to create a level playing field for all kinds of business entities and further support private enterprises in growing and thriving. “The private sector will enjoy a better environment and broader space for development,” he said, stressing that China’s commitment to the development of the private sector is unequivocal and steadfast. Meanwhile, the premier dismissed concerns over China’s demographic change, saying the country’s “demographic dividend” has not disappeared and that its “talent dividend” is in the making. “When assessing demographic dividend, we shall not just look at the sheer size of the population but also look at the scale of high-caliber workforce,” he told reporters, saying that more than 240 million people have received higher education in China, and the average length of education received by newcomers into the workforce has increased to 14 years.
