En el festival aéreo de Zouhai se presentaron en noviembre el caza J-31 junto con los aviones de transporte Y-20 y el de alerta temprana KJ-2000 (ver los vídeos que publicamos en noviembre sobre ello)

El J-31 se dio a conocer hace dos años como el último desarrollo chino en cazas de 5ª generación, que podría poner en el mercado a un precio bastante bajo para dotar a los países que tradicionalmente han comprado armas a China y Rusia de un caza furtivo.

X-Plus one: el retorno de los VTOL "Tail-Sitter"
// Aerotwitornados

 

 

 

El eterno dilema de cómo lograr una aeronave que vuele como avión, rápido y con un consumo bajo, pero que sea capaz de tener vuelos a punto fijo y despegue y aterrizajer vertical, como un helicóptero. Y la vieja solución del tailsitter, que tal vez esta vez sí funcione, por ser un UAV en vez de un avión tripulado, con controles de vuelo automáticos

Es mecionar la palabra tailsitter y vienen a mi mente de forma inmediata el Triebflügel, Convair XFY-1 Pogo  o el Lockheed XFV-1. Y el X-Plus es algo así como un híbrido entre un tailsitter de toda la vida y un helicóptero cuatri-rotor de esos tan de moda estos días.

Aviones con motor híbrido (combustión interna+eléctrico)
// Aerotwitornados

Hasta un 30% menos de consumo de combustibleEl primer avión híbrido capaz de recargar sus baterías en vuelo

Ya no suena raro el hablar de coches híbridos. El Toyota Prius se lanzó en 1997, como el primer coche híbrido producido en serie y comercializado, y desde entonces otras marcas se han animado a lanzar coches similares. En aviación hemos visto algún intento de eléctricos, pero no de híbridos. En ambos casos el problema es el mismo: el peso de las baterías. Los últimos desarrollos han permitido almacenar más energía con menos peso, algo importante en los coches, pero crítico en los aviones.

Ahora, Boeing -que ya presentara su avión con pila de hidrógeno- y la Universidad de Cambridge presentan su Watts up, un avión híbrido combustión-eléctrico.

USAF will downgrade T-X requirements to shave cost - 1/14/2015 - Flight Global

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/usaf-will-downgrade-t-x-requirements-to-shave-cost-407923/

USAF Secretary Deborah Lee James said on 14 January that the Air Force is specifically targeting four programmes for capabilities downgrades, including the T-X trainer replacement for the Northrop Grumman T-38 jet trainer. Also in the crosshairs of the so-called cost-capability analysis (CCA) programme are the long-range standoff weapon, the follow-on to the space-based infrared system (SIBRS) and the multi-domain adaptable processing system (MAPS), which is envisioned as a pod to enable communications between stealth fighters.
