La Comunidad inicia los trámites para el nuevo aeródromo de El Álamo | Madrid | elmundo.es

La Comunidad no negociará con los propietarios de la pista
cercana a Casarrubios. Considera que se ha construido la
pista 300 metros dentro de la Comunidad de Madrid sin
permiso de las autoridades aeronáuticas y el Ayuntamiento
de El Álamo.
Las obras para el próximo aeródromo comenzarán en el
año 2015 y precisarán invertir 230 millones de euros, que
correrán a cargo de la empresa que resulte adjudicataria de
la concesión. Se calcula que dará empleo a 15.000
personas y que las obras durarán unos tres años.

EADS y Rolls Royce presentan su avión de aerolínea híbrido turbina-motor eléctrico

encontrar cómo sustituir los motores a reacción en las aeronaves de pasajeros es algo complejo. Hasta el momento se ha propuesto sustituir el keroseno por biocombustibles, lo que tendría la gran ventaja de no necesitar ningún cambio en la logística actual de suministro de combustibles a los aviones, ni de tecnología de motor, ni de formación de personal en nuevos motores. También se habla de nuevos motores, como los Geared Turbofan o el Leap-X a corto plazo, y los motores de rotor abierto tipo prop-fan a más largo plazo. Y ahora EADS y Rolls Royce nos presentan en Le Bourget esta nueva propuesta. Un avión híbrido, con una turbina de gas que generaría electricidad para mover varios motores eléctricos con fanes entubados, que proporcionarían el empuje. Se trata del eConcept.

Boeing Launches New Commercial Airplane; Highlights Innovation, Efficiency and Partnerships at 2013 Paris Air Show

martes, 25 de junio de 2013



LE BOURGET, France, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE:BA) enjoyed a strong and productive Paris Air Show launching its newest model, the 787-10 Dreamliner, announcing important commercial airplane orders and strengthening alliances and relationships with customers and partners around the world.

"The 50th Paris Air Show has been important for Boeing with a number of historic milestones," said Charlie Miller, Vice President of International Communications. "Our airline customers have strongly endorsed Boeing's innovative family of commercial airplanes with outstanding orders and the launch of our latest 787 Dreamliner model."

"The excitement and enthusiasm among customers, partners and suppliers for the products and technologies Boeing showcased across the commercial and defense businesses validated our commitment to innovation and customer focus," said Miller.

Boeing highlighted its family of efficient commercial airplanes in both the single and twin-aisle market segments. The 787-10 Dreamliner was launched with 102 orders and commitments from five customers, including Air Lease Corporation (30), GE Capital Aviation Services (10), International Airlines Group / British Airways (12), Singapore Airlines (30) and United Airlines (20).

The new 787-10 covers more than 90 percent of the world's twin-aisle routes with seating for 300-330 passengers. Design of the 787-10 has already started at Boeing and international partners will be involved in detailed design in the months ahead, with first delivery targeted for 2018.

The innovative 787-8 Dreamliner in Air India livery flew for the first time at the Paris Air Show, and the Qatar Airways 787 on static display attracted hundreds of customers, partners, government officials and news media. The ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system, produced by Boeing subsidiary Insitu, was part of the U.S. Corral display throughout the show.

Over the past week, customers have demonstrated their strong confidence in the full family of Boeing commercial products – the Next-Generation 737, 737 MAX, 787, 777 and 747-8, announcing orders and commitments for 442 Boeing airplanes, valued at more than $66 billion. Additional orders for 20 Next-Generation 737s and 20 737 MAX airplanes from unidentified customer(s) were posted on theOrders & Deliveries website today. The number of Boeing net orders for 2013 currently stands at 692.

Boeing announced during the show key partnerships with Embraer on the sales and marketing of Embraer's KC-390 medium-size transport, and with Sikorsky on a joint venture to compete for sustainment services in support of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia' s rotorcraft fleet. The U.S. Marine Corps V-22 Program Manager reported that operational success of the Bell-Boeing tilt-rotor played a key role in the recent award of a $6.5 billion multi-year contract for 99 aircraft. Boeing also announced that work has begun at Le Bourget on a $354 million Mid-Life Upgrade contract with Air France Industries to upgrade four French E-3F Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft.

Airbus to reduce lead times in numerical analysis activities for aircraft design



  • New software to help reduce lead time in aircraft design processes by up to 10%
19 JUNE 2013 PRESS RELEASE


Airbus is using new software to help engineers in their numerical analyses activities to reduce design lead time and cost of complex engineering projects. Deployment of this software, called MACROS, is being accelerated throughout Airbus. The tool will be used in various areas of the aircraft development and has successfully demonstrated lead time reductions of Airbus engineering activities.

MACROS was developed by DATADVANCE, a joint venture company between EADS and Russian partners. Together with the Russian Academy of Science they have been able to bring this high level of applied mathematics technology for numerical problem solving optimization and data analysis into a software compatible with industrial processes.

Charles Champion, EVP Head of Engineering said: “Numerical models are already used in all areas of engineering. Surrogate modeling and optimization are must-have in the set of numerical tools accessible to our engineers to build tomorrow’s aircraft, and until now they were restricted to a limited number of specialists. This software offers for the first time the ability to deploy these technologies at large scale and in a large variety of domains, for the benefit of our current and future aircraft.”

“We are proud of the confidence shown by Airbus in our solutions”; says Sergey Morozov, CTO of DATADVANCE. This cooperation with Airbus has enabled us to continuously improve MACROS both with respect to the performance of our algorithms and the evolution of the embedded intelligent layer allowing engineers to access and use the advanced algorithms.”

Airbus specialists from the departments of flight physics, structures, systems and future projects have been validating and assessing the tool on realistic industrial applications for several years. On some partial design processes, Airbus and DATADVANCE have demonstrated a reduction in lead time by a factor 10 to 20 in the numerical analysis. Overall, it is expected that this could lead to the reduction of up to 10% of lead time and cost in several areas of the aircraft design process.

Airbus is a leading aircraft manufacturer with the most modern and comprehensive family of airliners on the market, ranging in capacity from 100 to more than 500 seats. Airbus champions innovative technologies and offers some of the world’s most fuel efficient and quiet aircraft. Airbus has achieved more than 7,800 deliveries since the first Airbus aircraft entered service. Headquartered in Toulouse, France, Airbus is an EADS company.

Airbus books almost US$70 billion at Paris Air Show 2013



  • 466 Airbus aircraft orders & commitments across all product families;
  • A320neo Family retains 60 percent market share;
  • A350 XWB, A330 and A380 all continue to outsell the competition.
20 JUNE 2013 PRESS RELEASE


At the 2013 Paris Air Show, Airbus won US$68.7 billion worth of business for a total of 466 aircraft, which shows the resilience of the commercial aviation industry. The deals comprise Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) for 225 aircraft worth US$29.4 billion and firm purchase orders for 241 aircraft worth US$39.3 billion.

The A320 Family, spearheaded by the A320neo, continues its trailblazing success in the single-aisle market with 371 orders and commitments from six customers announced at the show, worth approximately $37.8 billion. Of these, 88 were for the A320ceo – showing that today’s in-production aircraft is still the most sought-after industry workhorse. A stand-out commitment during the show for the A320 Family was the announcement from easyJet for 100 A320neos plus 35 A320ceos – the winning result of a very intense competition. Another major endorsement for the A320 Family came from Lufthansa with the firming-up of 100 more aircraft. Additional A320 Family orders and commitments came from: Hong Kong Aviation Capital for 60; ILFC for 50; Spirit for 20; and Tunisia’s Syphax Airlines for three – significantly the first A320neo commitment from Africa.

Another star at Paris was the A350 XWB which flew for the first time on Friday 14th June 2013 and successfully completed its second flight on Wednesday 19th June. At the show this aircraft gained 69 more orders & commitments worth $21.4 billion from four customers on different continents. Air France-KLM placed a firm order for 25 A350-900s. Meanwhile, Singapore Airlines, already a large customer for the type, returned to order 30 more A350-900s; United Airlines also placed an additional A350 order for 10 A350-1000s -- not only bringing its total A350 orders to 35, but also upgrading its previous order for 25 A350-900s to the larger A350-1000 model to replace its Boeing 777s. In addition, Sri Lankan signed a commitment for four A350-900s to complement an order for six A330-300s at the show.

At the top end of the product range, the flagship A380 received a commitment for 20 aircraft from the world’s third largest wide-body lessor, Doric Lease Corp, in a deal worth more than $8 billion. The contract with Doric is significant as it opens up a new, additional route to market for the A380, which is now available to airlines who wish to acquire the aircraft under the flexibility of an operating lease agreement.

John Leahy, Airbus’s Chief Operating Officer, Customers said: “The dramatic rainfall and thunder storms at Le Bourget this year didn’t dampen our order intake.” He added: “Our A350 XWB has been out-selling the 787 by better than 2- to-1 over the last five years. In addition our A320neo Family retains a 60 percent market share lead. That’s a ‘corner’ I want to stay boxed into.”

The new 787-10 will fly up to 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 km) — covering more than 90 percent of the world's twin-aisle routes — with seating for 300-330 passengers, depending on an airline's configuration choices. The second member of the family, the 787-9, is in final assembly in Everett, Wash., and is set to make its first flight later this year.

"The 787-10 Dreamliner will be the most-efficient jetliner in history. The airplane's operating economics are unmatched and it has all the incredible passenger-pleasing features that set the 787 family apart as truly special," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "The 787-10 is 25 percent more efficient than airplanes of its size today and more than 10 percent better than anything being offered by the competition for the future."

Design of the 787-10 has already started at Boeing, and international partners will be involved in detailed design in the months ahead. Final assembly and flight test of the 787-10 are set to begin in 2017, with first delivery targeted for 2018.

"Our ongoing investment in the 787 family is well-founded," said Conner. "With the 787-10, we've designed an exceptional airplane supported by an efficient and integrated production system that can meet increasing demands and create new opportunities for us. Our team and our customers are excited about growing the product line and expanding our presence with this family of airplanes."

The 787 family's unique interior offers passengers technologies that make their flights more enjoyable, including large, dimmable windows; cleaner air; higher humidity; lower cabin altitude; bigger stowage bins; soothing LED lighting and a smoother ride. The 787-10 will share a common type rating not only with the 787-8 and 787-9 but also with the popular Boeing 777, giving airlines additional flexibility in scheduling and training flight crews.

Embraer and Boeing Team to Market and Sell KC-390 Medium-Airlift Aircraft



PARIS, June 18, 2013 -- Embraer [NYSE: ERJ; BOVESPA: EMBR3] and Boeing [NYSE: BA] are partnering on the sales and marketing of Embraer's KC-390 – a multi-mission mobility and aerial refueling aircraft with advanced capabilities in the medium-sized airlift market.

Under the agreement, Boeing is the lead for KC-390 sales, sustainment and training opportunities in the U.S., UK and select Middle East markets. Embraer will manufacture the aircraft and collaborate on sales, sustainment and training.

"The KC-390 is an extremely capable aircraft that continues to attract interest by several nations, and Boeing's military transport expertise is ideal for teaming in the international market," said Luiz Carlos Aguiar, President and CEO of Embraer Defesa & Segurança. "This agreement strengthens the level of cooperation between both companies and the defense industries of Brazil and the United States."

The KC-390 originated as a defense project contracted by the Brazilian Air Force in 2009. The largest aircraft to be manufactured in Brazil, it features advanced capabilities in terms of performance, cargo, capacity, flexibility and life-cycle costs. Initial estimates of the potential market for KC-390 are approximately 700 aircraft, but that number is likely to increase after additional markets are analyzed. The project has completed the Critical Design Review and is on schedule.

Today's announcement builds upon the broad cooperation agreement Boeing and Embraer signed in 2012. The companies are collaborating on aircraft efficiency and safety, research and technology, defense products and sustainable aviation biofuels.

"Our relationship with Embraer continues to grow across Boeing and demonstrates our commitment to Brazil," Boeing Defense, Space & Security Business Development and Strategy Vice President Chris Raymond said today at the Paris Air Show. "KC-390 complements our mobility portfolio by providing a versatile, affordable aircraft."

Airbus Military has placed a third work package with South Africa’s Denel Aerostructures (DAe) for the manufacture of structural components for the A400M military transport programme.



This multi-million Rand contract was received at the Paris Airshow today on behalf of South Africa’s Minister for Public Enterprises, Mr Malusi Gigaba and Denel’s Group CEO, Mr Riaz Saloojee. It will see DAe producing the ribs, spars and swords (ie. the skeletal support structure) for the A400M’s vertical tail plane.

Airbus Military CEO, Mr Domingo Urena, said: “Denel, with its diverse set of expertise, capabilities and capacities, is central to Airbus Military’s ambition to develop an expanded and multi-faceted partnership with South Africa’s high-tech aerospace and defence industry, tied to South Africa’s military aircraft requirements and acquisitions”.

South Africa’s Minister of Public Enterprises, Mr Malusi Gigaba, said: “The approximately ZAR200-million (€15.1m) work package is contracted to run over the entire life of the A400M programme and demonstrates Airbus Military’s confidence in Denel and South Africa’s design and manufacturing capabilities, coupled with our ability to deliver on time and within budgets.”

DAe has already begun preparing to launch production of the components at its plant near Johannesburg and will deliver the first finished shipset to Airbus’s specialised vertical tail plane factory at Stade, Germany in March 2014.

“Our success in establishing and maintaining partnerships like the one with Airbus Military is one of the pillars of our growth strategy, and it will make Denel profitable on a sustainable basis, improve our financial performance while also contributing to our national socio-economic imperatives. The contract strengthens Denel’s position in South Africa’s aerospace industry and reconfirms the company as a strategic national asset, its contribution to skills development and advanced manufacturing, as well as its potential to generate export revenue for the country,” Mr Saloojee said.

Under a renegotiated contract announced last September, the South African manufacturer is also responsible for two other A400M work packages involving the design, engineering and fabrication of the Wing-to-Fuselage Fairing and the fuselage Top Shells.

The wing-to-fuselage fairing is the largest single aerostructure component ever produced in South Africa and provides an aerodynamic shroud over sensitive equipment located in the centre wing part of the A400M. The fairing protects the equipment from lightning, hail damage and bird strikes.

The fuselage Top Shells are made up of more than 1 100 individual parts and a large machined skin, engineered out of an aluminium alloy. Each A400M is fitted with two Top Shells, positioned in front and behind the wings where they join the fuselage. They are also fitted with approximately 1 000 brackets which support electrical and electronic wiring, hot air and heat exchange pipes and the aircraft’s emergency life rafts.
