THE probability of the loss of one transport aircraft fitted with the new generation of turbofan engines every five years due to bird ingestion causing multiple engine shutdown was the conclusion drawn by Dr Glen W. Schaefer in a recent specialist lecture given to the Royal Aeronautical Society....
THE development programme for Concorde, the AngloFrench supersonic airliner project, has reached the point at which a confirmation of performance guarantees is imminent. This will form the basis for contractual negotiations with optionholding airlines.
AS background, I want to go back into history and say that ARB staff have been actively engaged in SST airworthiness discussions and research both within the ARB and with Government establishments since 1956. This work led to the formation within the ARB of the Supersonic Aircraft Airworthiness...
THE requirements of commercial efficiency impose a life of 12 to 15 years, coupled with a high rate of utilization, on civil aircraft. This puts very special conditions for the construction of the airframe, as well as on the testing of its reliability and safety in service.
DURING the Concorde flight development programme now well under way with the two Concorde prototypes, a total of 15,000 engine flight hours will be accumulated on the aircraft's RollsRoyce BristolSNECMA Olympus 593 turbojet engines.
THE Automatic Flight Control System AFCS has been jointly developed by Elliott and SFENA for the production Concorde aircraft. Elliott carry overall design responsibility and the equipment will be supported in the field by both Elliott and SFENA.
THE complete Concorde fuel system, part of which is described below, has been designed by the British Aircraft Corporation in conjunction with Aerospatiale of France. Plessey Dynamics Group's contribution has been to design and develop the several types of fuel pump to meet the very exacting...
IN aircraft manufacture, it is essential that the identity of the individual detail components are known at all stages ensuring they can be correctly assembled. Loss of identity can cause considerable excess and delays to production schedules through the necessity to reidentify.
THE advent of the aviation gas turbine created a demand for test equipment to reproduce operating conditions within the confines of the laboratory and test house. The importance of such testing is patently obvious and has been an accepted policy to ensure that engine component and airframe test...
The majority of people in Britain support Concorde this is the strong indication of an independent and random survey carried out recently among more than 2,300 people.
