President Donald Trump has reached what is being described as an "informal" agreement with Boeing for two new Air Force One airplanes.

The deal is the result of negotiations that began before President Trump took office a little over a year ago. Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said that Trump "has reached an informal deal with Boeing on a fixed price contract for the new Air Force One Program. Thanks to the president’s negotiations, the contract will save the taxpayers more than $1.4 billion.” Bell introduced the Bell 407GXi this week at Heli-Expo 2018. The Bell 407GXi incorporates new avionics, an upgraded engine, and new executive interior design options. The Bell 407GXi is outfitted with the new Rolls-Royce M250-C47E/4 dual channel FADEC turbine engine delivering exceptional hot and high performance, fuel efficiency and the ability to cruise at 133 kts/246 km/h. Newly designed executive configuration options bring a modernized look and passenger experience to the five-seat club cabin. Vashon Aircraft has announced the US-made Ranger R7 aircraft. Vashon Aircraft was founded by John Torode, and the Ranger R7 was designed by noted Pacific Northwest aeronautical engineer Ken Krueger. The Ranger is a two-seat aircraft, offered for $99,500. Every Ranger features a Continental O-200-D engine, a complete Dynon SkyView avionics suite including autopilot, and more. The base Ranger model - the Yellowstone - includes a complete Dynon SkyView equipped panel, including Autopilot. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
