  • REVIEW: Gemini200 G2ACA706 Air Canada Boeing 737 MAX 8 C-FTJV

    Air Canada Boeing 737 Max 8 C-FTJV
    1/200 Scale

    June 2018 Release

    Air Canada has become the second Canadian operator of the Boeing 737 MAX Next-Generation airliner, just weeks after WestJet inaugurated service on the type. The first delivery for Air Canada was Boeing 737 MAX 8*C-FTJV, the first of a firm order for 61 737 MAXs scheduled for delivery to Air Canada through 2021.

    The Boeing 737 MAX is powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1B engines, designed for fuel efficiency and noise reduction. Overall, the aircraft is 14 per cent more fuel-efficient than current 737 Next-Generations, and it has a reduced operational noise footprint of up to 40 per cent through quiet-engine technology.
    The aircraft comes with Boeing’s new sky interior, which has such features as customizable LED lighting and new speakers to improve the sound and clarity of onboard announcements. Air Canada’s 737 MAX 8s will have seat configurations of 16 first class seats and 153 coach seats, totaling 169 seats.

    The model by Gemini represents the very first Boeing 737 Max 8 delivered to Air Canada C-FTJV.

    My model had no quality control issues. The landing gear is fixed in the down position.

    A stand is provided with the model, but it of the virtually useless tripod type best left in the box.

    Overall a very attractive model and a must for any Canadian airliner collection.
