What new aircraft are being planned? Who has the resources to invest in
these new programs?

I have heard of the New Small Aircraft (NSA) being planned by a far
eastern consortium (China, Korea, India). They are looking for design
assistance from established airframers such as Boeing, Airbus and Daimler
(Daimler now owns Fokker?).

What else is cooking? Commercial aviation is due to rebound soon.
Passenger traffic will increase, and airlines will invest in new
equipment. But which airframers are capable of responding to these
new demands?

How about discussions on these or related issues?
