Boeing and JVC Add More Realism to Military Training Simulation



ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 3, 2012 -- This week at the 2012 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Boeing [NYSE: BA] is demonstrating new technology with its Constant Resolution Visual System (CRVS) that allows the system to deliver almost four times the resolution of high definition for more realistic and effective military training.

JVC's new e-Shift 8K projection technology brings CRVS' visual acuity closer to 20/20 while keeping the system’s projector small and affordable. It nearly doubles a projector’s resolution horizontally and vertically, approaching 8K performance from a 4K device.

"CRVS previously provided the highest-resolution, lowest-cost solution on the market," said Barry Kuhlmann, Visual Systems engineering manager at Boeing. "Now, with JVC e-Shift 8K projectors, CRVS has taken another leap forward in visual performance and fidelity to better prepare military pilots by allowing them to train in a more realistic yet safe environment."

"We believe that image quality counts, whether it’s for entertainment, education or next-generation flight training," said Rod Sterling, chief engineer, JVC Technology Center. "We designed our e-Shift 8K projector to register down to 1/16th pixel accuracy to provide the unparalleled clarity and sharpness that Boeing customers demand."

CRVS provides constant target visibility throughout the entire field of vision by surrounding the pilot and cockpit in an eggshell-like environment that visually transforms into cities, landscapes and complex combat scenarios. JVC e-Shift 8K projectors further enhance the training experience and enable pilots to identify targets at real-world ranges.

CRVS is compatible with a wide range of fast jet and rotary-wing cockpits and aviator night vision goggles, and easily integrates with current and future head-mounted displays. Existing CRVS customers can upgrade to JVC e-Shift 8K without modifying screens or structure.

JVC Professional Products, located in Wayne, N.J., a division of JVC Americas Corp., is a leading manufacturer and distributor of a complete line of broadcast and professional equipment. More information is available at pro.jvc.com/visualization.

A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is one of the world's largest defense, space and security businesses specializing in innovative and capabilities-driven customer solutions, and the world's largest and most versatile manufacturer of military aircraft. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a $32 billion business with 61,000 employees worldwide.

First Airbus simulator supporting A320neo training in China ready for operation



3 DECEMBER 2012 PRESS RELEASE


The first A320 full simulator upgradable to support the flight training of A320neo was put into operation today at the Hua Ou Aviation Training Centre in Beijing, a joint venture between Airbus China and China Aviation Supplies Holding Company (CAS). Captain Hu Zhenjiang, deputy director general of Flight Standard Department of Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) presented the qualification certificate of the A320 full flight simulator (S35) and the approval certificate for CCAR "Quality Assurance System" to Raymond Lim, general manager of Hua Ou Aviation Training Centre during a ceremony held at the centre with over 100 guests.

Hua Ou Aviation Training Centre is part of an Airbus global training and support network, dedicated to provide Airbus aircraft operators with training and support around the clock throughout the year. Since it received the first group of pilot trainees in October 1997, the center has trained crews from more than 30 airlines worldwide. Over 24,000 professionals, including pilots, cabin attendants, maintenance technicians, performance/operations personnel and structure technicians have been trained there.

The 12,300-square-metre training center is equipped with four full flight simulators for Airbus aircraft, three for the A320 Family and one for the A330/A340 Family. It also manages the daily operation and maintenance work for an EC225 helicopter simulator, which belongs to Eurocopter, another subsidiary of EADS.

"I am pleased to participate in another milestone in the history of Hua Ou and to see Hua Ou inaugurating a fourth Airbus full flight simulator. As the best selling single aisle aircraft family, the A320 has also proven to be very popular in China. Hua Ou has served our customers training needs extremely well since it was put into operation in 1997. With this new simulator, we will be able to prepare our customers for the EIS of the A320neo in 2015", said Laurence Barron, president of Airbus China.

Hua Ou Aviation Training Centre has also received the approval for "Quality Assurance System" by CAAC on the same day. The system, established by CAAC, is to ensure reliable and high-quality flight training facilities in China. Hua Ou Aviation Training Centre is among the first to obtain CCAR "Quality Assurance System". It is a testament to and recognition of Hua Ou's long and tested experience in Airbus flight training.

To date, more than 8,600 Airbus A320 Family aircraft have been sold and more than 5,300 delivered to more than 350 customers and operators worldwide, making it the world's best selling commercial jetliner ever. With proven reliability and extended servicing periods, the A320 Family has the lowest operating costs of any single-aisle aircraft.

The A320neo, with over 1,500 firm orders from more than 30 customers since its launch, is the fastest selling commercial aircraft ever and is on track to enter service from 2015. On 30 August, 2012, ICBC Financial Leasing Co. Ltd. signed an agreement with Airbus for a total of 50 A320 Family aircraft, including 30 A320ceo and 20 A320neo, becoming the neo's first customer in China.

Qatar Airways endorses the larger A350 XWB models



  • Strong customer commitment for the high capacity A350-1000
3 DECEMBER 2012 PRESS RELEASE


The State of Qatar's national airline, Qatar Airways and Airbus have signed an amendment to convert its existing firm order for twenty (20) A350-800s, forty (40) A350-900s and twenty (20) A350-1000s to forty three (43) A350-900s and thirty seven (37) A350-1000s. Qatar Airways' total order for A350 XWB aircraft remains at eighty (80) aircraft.

"We have taken the time necessary to come to today's decision in favour of the larger A350 XWB models which we believe are best suited to our business model," said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways' CEO.

"Qatar Airways has been involved in the development of the A350 XWB from the very early days. So we are truly delighted with their decision to grow their business with the two larger A350 XWB models," said Fabrice Bregier, Airbus' President and CEO. "This decision by Qatar Airways not only confirms the market trend towards larger A350's but it also demonstrates the value of offering, as we do with the A350 XWB, a true family of aircraft from which our customers can select the models that best meet their individual requirements."

The A350 XWB is Airbus' all new family of mid-size wide body airliners. These highly efficient aircraft bring together the latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies to provide up to 25 percent better fuel efficiency and operating costs compared to current aircraft in the same size category. Over 70 percent of the A350 XWB's weight-efficient airframe is made from advanced materials combining composites (53 percent), titanium and advanced aluminium alloys. The aircraft's innovative all-new Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) fuselage results in lower fuel burn as well as easier maintenance. The A350 XWB benefits from Airbus' high level of expertise in incorporating composite material into its aircraft.

A320 Sharklet EASA certification paves the way for airlines to benefit from significant fuel savings potential



  • Certification of the other aircraft/engine variants with Sharklets to follow,
  • Fuel savings above expectations
3 DECEMBER 2012 PRESS RELEASE


Airbus has achieved on schedule certification for its new fuel-saving Sharklets for the A320 with CFM engines. This certification received from the European airworthiness authorities (EASA) will be followed very soon by the US FAA.

Tom Williams, Executive Vice President of Programmes at Airbus says: “The certification of Airbus’ Sharklets is a milestone which paves the way for airlines to benefit from savings in fuel of around four percent. That’s better than we’d anticipated.” He adds: “The annual greenhouse gas emission reduction per aircraft equipped with Sharklets will be approximately 1,000 tonnes of CO2 – that’s equivalent to taking 200 cars off the roads.”

For the flight test campaign, A320 Family aircraft with both CFM56 and V2500 engines have recently taken to the skies with Sharklets. When complete, this flight testing will represent approximately 600 flight-hours spread over 9-10 months. Certification of the remaining aircraft/engine variants with Sharklets will therefore follow in the coming months. By the end of 2012, Air Asia will become the first airline to take delivery of Sharklet-equipped A320s.

Due to the very strong customer demand for Sharklets, all Airbus’ single-aisle final assembly lines (FALs) will be engaged in building A320 Family aircraft with Sharklets. These FALs are located in Toulouse, Hamburg and Tianjin and will soon be followed by an additional A320 FAL in Alabama USA.

Sharklets are large devices made from composites and are 2.4 metres tall. Attached to the A320’s wing-tip during the assembly process, they reduce fuel burn and emissions by improving the aerodynamics of the aircraft. As well as cutting airlines fuel bills, Sharklets will add around 100nm range and also allow increased payload capability of up to 450kgs. Sharklets are an option on new-build aircraft, and are standard on the A320neo Family.

To date, more than 8,600 Airbus A320 Family aircraft have been sold and more than 5,300 delivered to more than 350 customers and operators worldwide, making it the world’s best selling commercial jetliner ever. The A320 Family has the lowest operating costs of any single-aisle aircraft. Headquartered in Toulouse, France, Airbus is an EADS company.

Resucitan al legendario y desaparecido bombardero ligero polaco PZL-37 B "Łoś"



Morro del Lòs 

Uno de los mejores aparatos que disponía la fuerza aérea polaca en septiembre de 1939 era el moderno bombardero PZL-37 B "Łoś" (alce). Con unos 120 en servicio al inicio de la campaña demostró una gran capacidad en ataques contra las columnas alemanas que se adentraban en territorio polaco. Desgraciadamente hoy en día no existe ningún ejemplar superviviente del conflicto y los aficionados a la historia aeronáutica únicamente pueden contemplar pequeños restos de aviones derribados en varios museos polacos... Resucitan al legendario y desaparecido bombardero ligero polaco PZL-37 B "Łoś"
