Aerion Unveils Stage 5 GE Affinity Engine for Supersonic AS2 – AINtv

Read more here: https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2018-10-15/aerion-unveils-stage-5-ge-affinity-engine-supersonic-as2 Aerion recently took another step toward reintroducing civil supersonic transportation when it announced in October that it has an engine for its AS2 mach 1.4 business trijet. GE Aviation’s Affinity line of supersonic-capable turbofans will also meet upcoming Stage 5 environmental and noise standards. GE has built supersonic-capable engines for military applications since the 1950s, for the F-104 Starfighter, and is drawing from that experience for the Affinity turbofans. The new engine features a service ceiling of 60,000 feet and the highest bypass ratio of any supersonic engine. The first AS2 is scheduled to fly in 2023, with certification in 2025, and GE says that it will have the engine ready to support that schedule.

Flying into Tough Airports: Aspen, Colorado – AINtv

Flying into Tough Airports: Aspen, Colorado – AINtv

We’re at FlightSafety International’s Teterboro learning center to spend some time in a Falcon 900EX level D simulator to learn about how to fly into some of the toughest airports in the world. These airports are difficult to fly in and out of because of high terrain surrounding the airports, challenging local weather conditions, and constraints on engine-out departure and missed-approach procedures. FlightSafety’s Aspen course, which includes an online ground school and simulator training, takes about 4 hours. In this video, we’re going to practice some of the maneuvers covered in the FlightSafety training, including a missed approach after an approach to Aspen.

Bombardier’s Global 7500 Achieves Certification – AINtv

Bombardier’s Global 7500 Achieves Certification – AINtv

Bombardier is celebrating the much-anticipated receipt of Transport Canada type certification of its 7,700-nautical mile flagship Global 7500. The company expects U.S. FAA and EASA certification shortly and anticipates delivering approximately 20 aircraft before the end of 2019. To meet that goal, Bombardier has been aggressively ramping up the completions process in Montreal, and customers have been working with designers at the company’s interior showroom, which is like a boutique interior design shop. This is where they can select the appointments for their new aircraft’s interior, such as leathers, materials, veneers, carpeting, countertops, hardware, and even selections of china. The Global 7500 is the largest purpose-built business jet, offering a four-zone interior, and that size provides customers with new flexibility when configuring their living spaces. That size also poses new challenges for Bombardier in managing the completions process and ensuring timely deliveries for orders that stretch into 2021.

Terrafugia’s eVTOL Concept Taps Hybrid Tech and Detachable Passenger Pods – AINtv

Terrafugia, known for its flying car technology, is now talking with Part 135 air taxi operators about the feasibility of its emerging TF-2 hybrid vertical takeoff and landing vehicles. These remarkable machines can pick up a passenger as an Uber or LYFT would, bring them to a heliport, mate the passenger pod with its airborne component, fly the passengers to a destination, and re-mate with a roadable undercarriage that drives the passengers to their final destinations. Terrafugia, founded in 2006, has grown from 20 to more than 200 employees worldwide in the past year and has expanded from its Woburn, Massachusetts office to a leased hangar at Nashua airport in New Hampshire as it prepares to ramp up production of its earlier hybrid technology, the Light Sport category Transition, a roadable aircraft. The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Geely Holding, a global automotive group based in China. If you’ve enjoyed this video, please give it a thumbs-up, share it, and subscribe to our channel.

Flying the Gulfstream G650ER Business Jet – AINtv

Flying the Gulfstream G650ER Business Jet – AINtv

AIN’s Matt Thurber recently had the chance to get acquainted with the G650 on a flight from Gulfstream’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia to Columbia, South Carolina and back. For the complete pilot report, please visit: https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2017-10-08/pilot-report-gulfstream-g650er When the G650 was launched in 2008, it represented a unique transition for Gulfstream, into the realm of fly-by-wire flight controls. The G650 is unique because it’s likely the only FBW Gulfstream that will ever feature the traditional yoke-operated flight controls. The new G500 and G600 are equipped with sidesticks, the control of choice for most fly-by-wire designs. There are additional benefits besides the weight savings of computers and wiring versus cables, pushrods and hydraulics. Fly-by-wire allows engineers to extract more performance from the airplane while tuning the ride for passenger comfort. Built-in envelope protection helps pilots keep out of dangerous corners. Flight control surfaces can be manipulated by the computers to continually optimize aerodynamics for minimum drag, and in the G650’s case this amounts to a one percent drag reduction.
