Airbus test its sub-orbital SpacePlane dropping it from an Airbus Helicopter AS350 B3e Ecureuil

Early last month, an AS350 B3e Ecureuil operated by Airbus Helicopters Southeast Asia (AHSA) played an important role in a technology demonstration led by Airbus Group's Defence and Space division that may one day see tourists traveling to space.



The project, known as the SpacePlane, aims to take passengers on short trips above the atmosphere in a jet designed to take off from a standard runway and then rocket to heights of around 100 kilometers thanks to a methane-oxygen engine.





The demonstrator tests, conducted off the coast of Singapore, were carried out to help understand how the aircraft would perform during the end-of-flight phase following a return from space.



To do this, the quarter-scale demonstrator needed to be dropped from an altitude of 10,000 feet (approximately 3,000 meters or nearly two miles). Airbus Group decided to perform this feat with a helicopter and the design expertise of AHSA.



AHSA's design office conceived, produced and then tested the platform used to raise the SpacePlane from a barge located in the South China Sea. In addition, AHSA developed, planned and conducted the helicopter operations necessary to lift and carry the plane to the desired altitude before releasing it. (Watch video footage .)





The novel lifting and separation system designed by AHSA enabled the scaled model to be carried as a helicopter under-slung load and released upon command from a control panel in the helicopter cabin.



An AHSA pilot performed the actual maneuver flying an AS350 B3e and supported by a dedicated AHSA test team stationed both on the barge and in the helicopter.



The flight test campaign lasted approximately 12 flying hours and culminated in the successful drop. Feedback from the test will be used to advance the design process to the next pre-development phase.



The demonstrator used in the tests was built by Airbus Defence and Space, in partnership with HOPE Technik and Airbus Group Innovations, the corporate network of research centers of Airbus Group.

Tecnam P2012 Traveller production facility to open in 2015

Tecnam on April 10th has announced the start of construction of the P2012 Traveller production facility, located in Capua, Italy and opening in summer 2015.



The establishment of Tecnam P2012 Traveller production facility is a result of a significant investment that will include not only the new production hangar at Capua, Italy, but the creation of a number of new skilled aircraft engineering and support jobs.



The Tecnam P2012 Traveller is an eleven seat next generation twin designed to comply with both FAR part 23 and EASA CS-23.



Airlines have been demanding a replacement for the many hundreds of 'heritage' aeroplanes in the FAR23/CS23 category currently in service around the world, as many are now coming to the end of their useful commercial life. With the introduction of the P2012 Traveller, Tecnam is ensuring that not only are passenger demands for comfort and safety met, but that potential operators purchasing the P2012 Traveller are now able to afford an aeroplane with significantly improved direct operating costs, more efficient maintenance routines and an appreciation for ensuring that the industry takes into account global environmental considerations such as the need for lower fuel burn and less noise emissions.



The announcement of the investment in the dedicated P2012 Traveller production is another critical step in the P2012 delivery programme that has seen Tecnam complete its first analysis, wing tunnel, flight and ground loads and preliminary design phases.



Tecnam are now initiating the P2012 Critical Design Review for both structure and systems.



''Ultimately operators have been demanding a next generation aeroplane that can deliver not only profits but reliability, efficiency and off course passenger comfort. The Tecnam design team have answered all these needs in developing the P2012 Traveller, one of the first new FAR23/CS23 aeroplane in 25 years!'' said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam's Managing Director. ''The P2012 Traveller builds on our commitment to continue to develop outstanding, stylish, innovative and affordable aeroplanes.''



The Tecnam P2012 Traveller will first see service as a passenger aeroplane but has been designed from the start to be a very versatile and flexible aerial platform, offering many multi role opportunities including Hydro, VIP, cargo shipping, parachuting and medevac services.

Tecnam P92 tail dragger fly over Aconcagua

At nearly 23,000 ft, Aconcagua is the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western hemispheres.



It has been a long held ambition of Mario Cardama, Tecnam's Argentina based dealer to fly over Mount Aconcagua. On the 24th of May, Mario achieved his lifelong ambition as he powered his Tecnam P92 Tail Dragger up to 22,840 ft and over the summit.



Here's an extract from Mario's flight commentary



After several months of planning, on the 24th of May conditions were such to make an attempt to fly over the summit of Aconagua possible.



So around noon I took off from RAE- Rivadavia Aerotec- Mendoza airport, Argentina, to heading for San Martin Airport (2100 ft.) to coordinate with friends (Alejo and Cayetano ) who would fly with me towards the Andes mountains to support my radio activity and watch for any developments!



At 13:05 we took off westbound climbing to reach the Potrerillos Dam in the Pre-Andes mountain range. We crossed at approx. 8,000 feet and continued to Cordón del Plata, exceeding 10,000 ft here. I then separated from the support aircraft that was accompanying me. Approaching the Uspallata Valley and across 12000 ft I begin to see the imposing Aconcagua in the distance and very high indeed. The Tecnam P92 Tail Dragger was performing perfectly.



At these altitudes it's necessary to use oxygen, so I connected my supply and I then began to monitor my body signs very carefully. I decided to cross the valley to the north and head in a more direct path to the Aconcagua and the Tecnam P92 continued to behave perfectly. It continue climbing smoothly as I got close to the mountains base at 18,000 ft. An altitude of 18,000 ft however was not enough, I had to proceed to the hardest part... to reach 22840 ft. and the summit.



By now I was very cold and 2 of the 3 cameras mounted outside stopped recording. The aircraft cabin was comfortable and there was the satisfaction that I didn't feel so cold even though after passing the 20,000 the cold had already started to penetrate into my feet but I did not give it much thought. After avoiding some turbulence and making some turns in the area I managed to reach the summit , and the excitement and the desire to record that moment I did not realize it was still rising , this aircraft had not reached its limit. But as the pilot I. knew I was close to my limit. The severe cold and oxygen deprivation was not enough to stop me and I decided to make a few turns around to capture different angles with my camera.



I communicated to friends who were down at a much lower altitude, with what to them seemed a strained voice that my mission was accomplished. I was descending through 24,000 ft. / 7340 mts. I 'm controlling all parameters of the Tecnam P92's Rotax 914 engine. I increased the RPM's but did not exceed 'max'. All aspect of P92's descent were very smooth.



As I descended, I remembered all the people who helped get me here; my family for the support that I always had, my father for infecting my passion for flying and of all Tecnam team back in Capua, Italy. A special mention must be made of Professor Luigi Pascale, who at 91 is still the inspiration for all the great designs at Tecnam and without who my personal mission would not have been possible.
