Una Tecnam para pilotos discapacitados


Tecnam ha sido el primer fabricante en adaptar y certificar un avión desde cero para discapacitados, en concreto para aquellos que no puedan utilizar sus piernas. Todo el control de la Tecnam 2002JF se realiza con las manos: en la izquierda la palanca de mando más los frenos, y en la derecha el timón de profundidad, los gases y los flaps. El instructor o el copiloto, sentado a la derecha, dispone de los mandos clásicos de laTecnam P2002.

TECNAM P2002JF - VLA EQUIPPED WITH HAND CONTROLS FOR DISABLED PILOTS ACHIEVES EASA CERTIFICATION

This achievement of EASA approval is the result of over 18 months of ergonomic studies, test pilot's review, specialist component design, collaboration with Italian CAA (ENAC) and EASA and the input from many involved with the disabled pilots community.

The version of the Tecnam P2002JF is the first worldwide CS-VLA certified aircraft factory built with disabled hand controls. It is also the first time that the issue of official certification documents contain explicit reference to disabled pilots.

Mike Miller-Smith OBE, Aerobility CEO commented:

“This milestone project is truly the best of engineering and the best of human spirit – giving the freedom of flight to all. It signifies an exciting new era of accessible aviation for disabled people, providing low-cost flying opportunities for a wide range of disabilities. My sincere thanks to the Tecnam team. One simple PDF. One whole generation of disability awareness, social change, knowledge and engineering expertise!”

The challenges of achieving certification were a result of;

1. Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO authorizing the investment required to achieve this significant aviation milestone, not on the potential of sales but Tecnam’s commitment to ensuring that ‘everyone’ has the ability to enjoy the joy and freedom of flying.
2. 150 detailed files were produced by Tecnam’s Research and Development team to design and certify this special version of the P2002JF.
3. Issue of an EASA Certification Review Item (CRI) in order to offer a solid background to all the National Authorities in judging disabled pilot's as "able to fly" - The CRI title is "Additional control for disabled pilots";
4. 22 flight test hours conducted by Tecnam Chief Test Pilot Marco Locatelli, in order to explore every single aspect of the "unusual" controls arrangement - the Bedford Workload Scale has been used to evaluate the suggested training and transition on the aircraft, and in order to scientifically evaluate the workload;
5. More than 30 spin tests performed in order to evaluate all the possible instinctive reactions and the aircrafts consequent behavior;
6. Two of the world’s leading disabled pilots, Tim Ellison (former Royal Air Force Harrier pilot) and Alessandro Paleri (Italian ULM pilot and co-founder of the first worldwide aerobatic team of disabled pilots) performed cabin, provision to step-inside, flight evaluations and emergency escape tests. Their contribution in particular cannot be under estimated.
7. Close collaboration with Italian CAA (ENAC) specialists Francesco di Capua and Vito Foti which gave many constructive suggestions on how Tecnam’s initial designs might be improved.
8. The advice and support of Captain Tim Orchard, Tecnam’s dealer for the UK & Ireland and former Concorde pilot, who was the projects main sponsor and driving force. It was Captain Orchard who worked with Aerobility on the spectacular Tecnam P2006T Twin flight over the 2012 London Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony.

This version of the Tecnam P2002JF aircraft architecture is very simple and flexible: The flight instruction will be allowed by a third throttle control and second slip indicator on the RH side, while whoever is sat on the left side (student or disabled pilot flying solo) will:
• Control the stick (pitch and roll) and the brakes with the left hand;
• Control the rudder, throttle and flap with the right hand on the central control.

First Look: Dassault Flying Formation

Aviation Week readers have been given an exclusive first look at the formation flight of the nEUROn unmanned combat air vehicle with a Rafale fighter and a Falcon 7X business jet, filmed and photographed by two chase planes.

It’s the first time a combat drone has flown in formation with other aircraft. The flight took place on 20 March 2014 over the Mediterranean ocean. Lasting 1 hour, 50 minutes the flight involved four manned aircraft and the UCAV flying alongside each other in a confined space.

In what is described as “a daunting challenge” Dassault engineers had to plan ahead to factor in the risk of interference, including aerodynamic turbulence between the aircraft as well as electromagnetic interference with communications between the nEUROn and its ground control station.

Officials Say Attendance Was Highest In Years Well.... we've heard some pretty heavy duty SnF attendance claims before... and back then, they were B.S... But maybe this time, it will be different. The official word from Sun 'n Fun is that the 40th International Fly-in and Expo that wrapped up in Lakeland, Florida, on April 6 saw one of the largest turnouts in years thanks to perfect weather, improved operations, 3,000 dedicated volunteers, and popular attractions including the Navy's Blue Angels Naval flight demonstration team that performed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Modifican genéticamente el tabaco para producir más etanol para bio combustibles

Modifican genéticamente el tabaco para producir más etanol
// Instituto de la Ingeniería de España

Investigadores de la Universidad Pública de Navarra han modificado genéticamente plantas de tabaco y las han cultivado con más densidad para producir entre un 20 y un 40 por ciento más de etanol.

Investigadores de la Universidad Pública de Navarra (UPNA) han realizado un estudio con plantas de tabaco, modificadas genéticamente, a partir de las cuales se puede producir entre un 20 y un 40 por ciento más de etanol, lo que aumentaría su viabilidad como materia prima para producir biocombustibles.

El tabaco, señala la universidad en una nota de prensa, puede llegar a producir 160 toneladas de materia fresca por hectárea. Según Jon Veramendi, responsable del grupo de investigación Agrobiotecnología vegetal, “las plantas de tabaco como fuente de biomasa para producir bioetanol podrían ser una alternativa al cultivo tradicional de tabaco, que está en retroceso en EE.UU. y en Europa porque no pueden competir con países emergentes como China”.

Las plantas fueron modificadas genéticamente para aumentar su producción de almidón y azúcares, lo que favorece el incremento en la producción de etanol.

El cultivo tradicional del tabaco deja que la planta se desarrolle y las hojas crezcan y se hagan más grandes, ya que la nicotina se sintetiza cuando la planta está más crecida. Sin embargo, en el caso de utilizar las plantas para producción de biocombustibles, los investigadores apuestan por un cultivo de mayor densidad, similar al de las plantas forrajeras: “Se siembran las plantas de tabaco muy próximas unas a otras y, a lo largo del ciclo, se realizan varias siegas. Cuando la planta alcanza aproximadamente 50 centímetros de altura, se corta y esa producción se lleva a la factoría de procesamiento de biomasa. Así, a lo largo del ciclo se pueden conseguir hasta 160 toneladas de materia por hectárea”.
