Travel Day: DCA-BDL-ORD-SEA, originally uploaded by flightblogger.

HARTFORD -- I'm currently in the middle of my day bouncing across the country. I've wrapped up my visit to Pratt & Whitney in Hartford and Middletown where the company tightened the final bolt on the first PW1524G engine to test. After a grueling 24-month, eight-engine certification program the geared powerplant will take flight under the wing of the Bombardier CSeries. I'll have much more on my visit to Pratt during this week and next.

Next stop for me is O'Hare on United 483 on board N468UA, an Airbus A320, then on to Seattle for a few days for the unveiling of the Boeing 787 full flight simulator and additional interviews. Flightglobal will be covering 787 simulators wall-to-wall, so check back mid-day Thursday for an up close multimedia look at the tools that will train future Dreamliner pilots and a 777-rated pilot's impression of how the simulator handles.

If all goes to plan, Thursday and Friday are going to be very, very busy days on this blog.

Stay tuned.
