Airbus - new A320 Airspace interior

Airbus and team have effectivity been able to add yet another model to their fleet of wide bodied aircrafts. The newest model will be known as the A320, which is much like its sister aircrafts the A330neo and A350 series. Airbus has said to have the A320 share many of the same principles as the previous models, alongside many newer innovations. One of the many new features that got a lot of attention at the recent Aircraft Interiors Expo held in April was the expanded overhead storage space. During this expo, a lot of great criticism became the trigger to releasing the newly profound cabin. Per an interview with Airbus Executive Vice President of Product Strategy, Dr. Kiran Rao mentioned, “The A350 XWB cabin has proven extremely popular, with great feedback not only from passengers, but from design professionals.” Along with mentioning that,” This was great validation that gave us confidence to apply the design language to the A330neo and now to the A320 Family.” The larger storage space allows an estimated “40 percent more volume space” which is are more accommodating for larger carryon items. The cabin has been designed to be less bulky which not only creates more room for storage but increases lavatory options. The newly innovative cabin has been equipped with the latest IFE stage which has been located overhead. This platform is equipped with,” in-seat audio/video on-demand, as well as the provision for in-seat power, wireless flexible connectivity and mobile telephony (GSM on board).” One of the perks of these newer additions is that they can be easily integrated into already existing models. Airbus’ targeted time frame to have the entire package ready for integration is said to be by the year 2020.

Rolls Royce to Reduce Life Cycle Costs

Life cycle expenditures for helicopters can be a pricey investment for helicopter operators over time. A solution to lowering these costs has been in high demand for some time. Thankfully, aircraft engine maker Rolls-Royce has come up with a solution to this long-term concern. They are currently working to develop and new dual channel full authority digital engine (or FADEC) and control systems. This will take the place of the already existing hydro-mechanical equipment on some turboshafts.

This is thought to be the answer to the struggle to keep costs low while not sacrificing quality and functionality of these aircraft engine parts. Jason Propes, Rolls-Royce senior vice president for helicopter and light turboprops states, “These systems will improve the reliability of engines, and we expect to be able to introduce increased in time between overhaul for some components, resulting in lower dollar per operating hour for customers.”

There are quite a few additional upgrades for operators. One of these is the Value Improvement Package kit, which allows Series IV operators to boost hot and high performance. This modification is based on designed changes to the impeller, diffuser and first-stage nozzle that controls and improves airflow. Another new development is that Rolls-Royce is taking action to further improve the process by which data is obtained from its engines as part of the movement towards lower life cycle costs. They understand that the use of smarter and more efficient ways of receiving data is a top priority for consumers.

“This is all part of how we are trying to add more value,” explained Propes, “It starts with providing an affordable propulsion solution and then looking to reduce life-cycle costs for operators, delivering more for the same or lower cost.” Aviation Sourcing Solutions is a leading aircraft engine parts supplier. We want to make sure technological advancements, like the ones made to the Rolls Royce engines, are possible by offering a vast array of parts and making them available by way of a convenient and streamlined process. We are your go-to aircraft parts distributor.

Safran Helicopter

Safran Helicopter Engines, also known as Turbomeca, has been awarded a massive contract with the UK military to support their Airbus helicopters by the hour. Support by the hour (SBH) provides a fixed cost per engine per flight hour. Units can be completely overhauled and exchanges are sent at no additional cost. It is an incredibly effective budgeting tool for consumers and in this case the UK military, as no unexpected costs will arise. The Safran helicopter engine contract is specific to the Arrius 2B2Plus and Arriel 2E engines on the military’s H135 and H145 Airbus helicopters.

Around 25% of Turbomeca’s customers worldwide have chosen an SBH contract. This speaks to the quality and service of Safran Helicopter Engines and turbines. Helicopter parts and support can be extremely expensive, especially when supporting an entire fleet. In 2014 Chinese company Government Flying Services renewed their SBH contract with Safran. This contract covered their Arriel and Makila engine fleet based in Hong Kong. The renewal encouraged State Grid General Aviation Company to enter an SBH contract as well. Signing China’s largest helicopter operator under the SBH program was a huge success for Safran Helicopter Engines.

French company Safran Helicopter Engines has been around since the 1930’s manufacturing gas powered turboshaft engines for helicopters and gas turbine engines for aircraft and missiles. They also make turbines for land and marine applications. The most successful and notable engine by Safran is the CFM56 which was jointly developed with General Electric. The CFM56 is the most reliable and bestselling engine to power single-aisle commercial jets. More than 30,000 CFM engines have been delivered to customers worldwide and the partnership has been extended to 2040.

K-Max Helicopters

This spring will mark the first of the new Kaman Aerosystems external-left helicopters to begin delivery. The K-Max K-1200 will begin rolling out in April, with the second batch of helicopters set to fly in April of this year. The fleet of helicopters are to be used for the China Department of Forestry. They will arrive in both months at Lectern Aviation in China prior to being distributed to the Department of Forestry. K-Max has been out of production for ten plus years. This will mark the first return for this helicopter since it halted production in 2003.

The original K-Max was certified in 1994. Due to high demand and continued request for the K-max, Kaman Aerosystems decided in 2015 to start production of the helicopter. January marked the entail delivery of the first airframe from the Jacksonville production line to its plant located in Bloomfield, Connecticut. Currently the K-Max is undergoing its final flight testing and assembly work. “Delivery of the first K-Max aircraft to our customer is scheduled to take place during the second quarter of this year, following completion of the remaining assembly and testing at our Bloomfield facility,” said Drake Klotzman, Air Vehicles & MRO (AVMRO) division general manager, during is scheduled announcement to the press and public. “Producing the initial airframe is an important milestone for the program.” Kotzman did state that the K-Max would not require recertification but it would need to undergo the certification process since it has almost fifteen years since it’s last production. “Our experienced employees are working diligently to complete the first aircraft in order to have deliveries to customers begin this spring with multiple deliveries to follow during 2017,” Klotzman added. The first fleet of helicopters would be set at 10 units initially.

The announcement for the amount of helicopters for the second tier of production will be sometime this year. With the growing interest in in the K-Max helicopter the vibe has been very positive for rolling out units for the first time in over a decade. The U.S Marine Corps currently maintains two unmanned K-Max helicopters developed with Lockheed Martin. There are no known plans to add anymore K-Max helicopters to the U.S. military but that could change with the new production planned. Both helicopters were flown between 2011-2014, delivering 4.5 million pounds of cargo throughout Afghanistan. Kaman new fleet of K-Max helicopters will be manned, but also have the capability to be flown unmanned. They will continue to explore unmanned flight platforms for medevac, cargo delivery and firefighting.

Rolls-Royce A330neo Engine

Following the shift Airbus has cited a slight delay in the development of the A330neo power plant in entry into service to early 2018. The Airframers latest promise for the maiden flight of the re-engined jet is the first half of 2017.

Commercial aircraft president Fabrice Bregier unveiled during a briefing in Toulouse. With developing the Trent 7000 engine for the aircraft Rolls-Royce engine parts is “a little bit late” but stresses, “not due to engine performance”. He stated the engine manufacturer has been facing a ‘cumulative effect” of production of power plants for the A350-900 and -1000 as well as the Aircraft engine parts distributor, Boeing 787. But Bregier also notes that Airbus has the resilience to move the A330neo entry into service into the first half 2018. Originally it was set for the end of this year.

He explains that the air framer’s newest success with baseline A330. Sales have taken the pressure off the production transition, and that launch operator TAP Portugal’s plans for 2018 service entry. They are “compatible” with the new A330neo timeline. ASAP Semiconductor is the leading in sales and parts for Aircraft parts. They deal with Aviation and aircraft parts at aviation sourcing solutions. Airbus chief operating officer for customers, John Leahy, also determined that the airframer is looking to crush greater performance out of the A330neo, by examining options for extending the type’s range.
