Mascot of the Paris Air Show is to be Santos Dumont, who achieved the first powered flight in Europe and was born a hundred years ago. Several events are being organised to celebrate the centenary.
THE ECONOMIC and operational efficiency of any supersonic airliner depends on the successful reconciliation of two conflicting aerodynamic requirements good control and handling characteristics at subsonic and transonic speeds and low trim drag at supersonic speeds. Years of aerodynamic research...
DURING THE DEVELOPMENT of Concorde from prototype aeroplanes through preproduction to the full production standard, many design changes have been introduced to the 16 flight deck transparencies, which can be divided into three groups
WHEN THE PROGRAMME for the development of Concorde was put in hand 10 years ago, it was appreciated that there were potential problems associated with the radiation levels at high altitude which needed to be investigated.
This emergency generating system was first fitted on the 01 and 02 preproduction Concordes and will be installed on the production aircraft. Initial design work commenced in 1967 and a fully developed and typetested unit went into production in 1971.
THE INTRODUCTION of supersonic aircraft into civil transport operations will represent a significant milestone in the evolution of long range transportation systems. One important operational aspect which has been carefully evaluated is that of noise during takeoff and landing.
The production Concorde aircraft is now being equipped with the 2ATI numeralpointer engine instruments of Smith's Industries Ltd. The panel of 20 primary engine parameters is already in use and in production along with a panel of secondary engine parameter indicators so that altogether there are...
THE SYSTEM is a joint design and manufacturing responsibility of MarconiElliott Avionic Systems Ltd, a GECMarconi Electronics company, and SFENA Socit Franaise d'Equipements pour la Navigation Arienne.
AS CONCORDE HAS GROWN considerably in size and capacity since the prototype, the air conditioning system has correspondingly been revised and together with refinements to the air bleed and temperature control aspects of the system now represents as nearly as possible the final production...
THE HS 1182 multipurpose ground attacktrainer has been designed to offer good handling characteristics throughout its flight envelope, slow approach and landing speeds suitable for the basic jet training requirement and high indicated air speed and mach number performance necessary for the...
