Así será el primer avión 100% eléctrico de Volotea, Air Nostrum y Dante Aeronautical

miércoles, 22 de septiembre de 2021

Nota de prensa

El consorcio prevé que esta primera aeronave 100% eléctrica esté certificada para volar en 2024

Barcelona/Madrid/Valencia. 22 de septiembre de 2021

El proyecto de avión 100% eléctrico liderado por Volotea, Air Nostrum y Dante Aeronautical da un paso más hacia el futuro de una aviación sin emisiones. Este avión será fundamental para un transporte aéreo regional de cero emisiones, ya que permitirá habilitar conexiones entre pequeños centros de población gracias a sus reducidos costes operativos comparables a los de aviones mucho más grandes.

Los primeros planos e imágenes del que será el primer prototipo de avión 100% eléctrico muestran que la consecución de aeronaves más sostenibles está más cerca de ser una realidad. De hecho, el consorcio prevé que en tres años este primer prototipo esté certificado para volar, lo que supondría un hito en el sector aeronáutico.

La colaboración de los dos grandes operadores aéreos y Dante Aeronautical con compañías de inteligencia artificial, como DataBeaco y de ingeniería e innovación tecnológica en el sector de la aeronáutica, como la multinacional española CT; así como con Organismos Públicos de Investigación (OPI) como Cidaut, la Fundación para la Investigación y Desarrollo en Transporte y Energía o Cidetec, centro de investigación especializado en el almacenamiento de energía; representa un ejemplo de apuesta por la innovación tecnológica y de compromiso con la sostenibilidad.

"Empezamos nuestra colaboración con Dante Aeronautical en 2019 y estamos muy orgullosos de ver cómo el proyecto ha crecido y ganado impulso con el apoyo de nuevos socios, incluidas varias empresas de tecnología españolas. El desarrollo de una aeronave eléctrica que utilice tecnología de baterías de hidrógeno reducirá las emisiones de carbono. Tiene mucho sentido que Volotea apoye este proyecto, ya que está completamente en línea con nuestro objetivo de conectar ciudades desatendidas y hacerlo de manera más sostenible", ha señalado Carlos Muñoz, fundador y CEO de Volotea.

Carlos Bertomeu, presidente de Air Nostrum, por su parte, destacó que la aerolínea valenciana está acostumbrada a trabajar con pymes e instituciones. "Los resultados avalan las colaboraciones de Air Nostrum con startup tecnológicas y universidades en el camino de la eficiencia y la mejora del servicio al pasajero", señaló. "Era evidente que Air Nostrum, como aerolínea regional de referencia, tenía cosas que aportar a un proyecto tan ilusionante como este, especialmente en un ámbito como el de la sostenibilidad en el que llevamos trabajando muchos años", concluyó.

Miguel Madinabeitia, cofundador de Dante Aeronautical, pone en valor el acuerdo alcanzado: "Para Dante Aeronautical ampliar el consorcio firmado a otras firmas tecnológicas con gran carácter innovador solo puede reforzar nuestro plan de desarrollo de una aviación 100% eléctrica, que revolucione los conceptos de la actual, y nos impulse hacia un transporte más sostenible y limpio". "Este proyecto además se complementa perfectamente con nuestros esfuerzos en otras partes del mundo, como la iniciativa que tenemos en marcha en Australia para la electrificación de hidroaviones", comenta Madinabeitia.

Press Release: Sonex Announces New High Wing Models – Sonex Aircraft

https://www.sonexaircraft.com/press-release-high-wing/ 



Sonex Aircraft is proud to present its newest kit aircraft design: the Sonex Aircraft High Wings. Designed for expanded utility, ease of pilot access and to appeal to the high wing enthusiast, the Sonex High Wing offers the legendary Sonex performance and handling in a new configuration. While many kit manufacturers today offer high wing aircraft with a backcountry mission in-mind, we are making our cantilevered wing aircraft in the Sonex tradition of sleek, efficient aerobatic and cross-country performance – The Best Performance Per Dollar!

Sonex High Wing FAQ's:

Are you offering both Conventional Tail and Y-Tail model options?
Yes! With the Waiex-B leading Sonex Aircraft sales, it's clear that people love the looks and great handling of our Y-Tail designs, so we will offer both options for our high wing offerings.

Can I choose between Taildragger vs. Tri-Gear for Sonex Aircraft high wing aircraft?
Yes! We will have both gear configurations available with both tail configurations: 4 model options available between tail and gear configuration options.

When will the Sonex High Wing be available?
Our target is to display the Sonex High Wing at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in 2023 and begin taking orders at that time.

Will the Sonex Aircraft High Wing be a Backcountry Airplane?
No. just like the current fleet of Sonex Aircraft, the Sonex High Wing will be capable of handling short grass strips exceptionally well, but winning a STOL competition or flying off a gravel bar is not the intended mission of the aircraft – so many other aircraft already fill that bill quite well. Instead, we wanted to bring expanded utility and ease of pilot access to the existing Sonex mission of fun everyday local flying, aerobatics and fuel-efficient & fast long cross-countries to the high wing world. All that being said, if you ever wanted to put floats, skis or big tires on a Sonex, have at it with our new high wing!

What is the seating configuration?
Just like the Sonex, Waiex, Xenos and two-place SubSonex JSX-2T, the Sonex High Wing will have two seats, side-by-side.

Will pilots have more room in the Sonex High Wing?
Yes! Both the pilot seating and the aircraft's wing is moved aft approximately 2.5 inches and the Sonex High Wing will feature doors that offer a 44 inch cockpit width. Additionally, the shape of the high wing cabin configuration allows almost unlimited head room.

Can the Sonex High Wing carry more fuel?
Yes. The Sonex High Wing will feature the standard Sonex Aircraft B-Model 20 gallon rotationally-molded fuel cell along with an option for 10 gallons of auxiliary fuel in the inboard wings, which can be easily transferred to the main tank via gravity feed.

Will the Sonex High Wing have a higher gross weight?
Yes, the aircraft will have a max gross weight with Utility Category limit load factors of 1320 lbs. with an estimated empty weight of 720 lbs. to accommodate larger pilots and more fuel. The baggage capacity of the aircraft is also increased to 60 lbs.

Will it be aerobatic?
Yes, when flown solo with a gross weight at or under 1050 lbs., the Sonex High Wing will have +6 and -3G limit load factors. Like the Xenos motorglider, the Sonex High Wing will have easily interchangeable aerobatic wing tips to reduce span with the effect of increasing roll rate and maximizing top speeds for local aerobatic fun flying.

Will it be Sport Pilot Eligible?
Yes. The Sonex High Wing is designed to check all the boxes for Sport Pilot while offering the maximum useful load, aerobatic capability and cruise speeds. See our Sport Pilot web page for more information about Sport Pilot aircraft performance requirements.

Can the Sonex High Wing be transported on a trailer?
Yes. The Sonex High Wing features removeable outboard wing panels, similar to the SubSonex, with a fixed inboard wing section. Max width of the aircraft with outboard wings removed is 89-5/8" allowing the high wing Quick Build Kit and completed aircraft to fit in enclosed trailers and ocean freight shipping containers.

What engine will the aircraft be powered by?
The Sonex High Wing is designed for engines 100 hp or greater with a maximum firewall-forward installation weight of 200 lbs. Like current B-Model aircraft, the Sonex High Wing can use AeroVee, Jabiru, UL Power and Rotax engines.

With the introduction of the Sonex High Wing, will the 2-place SubSonex JSX-2T still be offered?
Yes! The 2-place jet is still going to be offered with a debut scheduled for AirVenture 2022. The Sonex High Wing will be the next new aircraft offering from Sonex Aircraft scheduled to debut at AirVenture 2023.

Can I get started now with a Sonex or Waiex Tail Kit?No. Although it looks very similar, Sonex Aircraft High Wings will have different tails: slightly larger due to the increased wing span.

How can I stay up to-date with Sonex High-Wing developments?
You can join our Sonex Hornets' Nest Research and Development email list segment for the Sonex High Wing to be automatically notified of project updates. Also stay tuned for updates to our web site home page, social media and other outlets such as media coverage and webinar presentations.

Iberia: El proyecto Aviator sigue adelante para lograr una aviación más sostenible



Nota de prensa








El Proyecto AVIATOR, financiado por el Programa Horizonte 2020 de la Unión Europea (UE), y dedicado a analizar el impacto de las emisiones de aviación en la calidad del aire de los aeropuertos y los alrededores, sigue adelante. La pasada semana se han realizado pruebas en un avión Airbus A340-600 de Iberia en el aeropuerto de Ciudad Real.

Expertos del INTA, coordinador del consorcio que compone AVIATOR, y de otras empresas e instituciones realizaron diversas mediciones de la emisión de partículas, compuestos orgánicos volátiles y gases (dióxido de carbono y óxidos de nitrógeno y azufre), entre otros, derivados del funcionamiento de los motores convencionales de aviación.

El proyecto AVIATOR consiguió hace más de dos años la máxima puntuación otorgada por la Agencia Ejecutiva de Innovación y Redes, lo que le permitió conseguir la financiación de la UE dentro de los Retos Sociales de Horizonte 2020 (Transporte sostenible, Salud e Impacto ambiental).

Otros objetivos clave de AVIATOR consisten en desarrollar sensores de bajo coste para determinar partículas ultrafinas, medir las emisiones en función de las condiciones climáticas (para lo que se trabajará en distintos aeropuertos europeos, entre ellos el de Madrid) y desarrollar modelos que permiten estudiar la microfísica real que se produce en la emisión de un motor de combustión.

“El proyecto AVIATOR nace del compromiso del INTA con la investigación y la búsqueda de nuevos métodos y tecnologías que permitan una caracterización más completa de las emisiones procedentes de motores de aviación. Los resultados obtenidos en las campañas de medida de AVIATOR contribuirán a la implementación de nuevas normativas que conduzcan a una aviación más sostenible y una mejor calidad del aire”, afirma Jesús Maellas Benito, Jefe del Área de Energía y Medioambiente del INTA.

Por su parte, Teresa Parejo, directora de Sostenibilidad de Iberia, señala que “la aviación se enfrenta al gran reto de la descarbonización y para ello creemos que es fundamental realizar una apuesta clara, decidida y ambiciosa por la investigación, para garantizar una aviación sostenible a largo plazo. Participamos en el proyecto AVIATOR con el objetivo de entender mejor el impacto que tiene la aviación en la calidad del aire, tanto cuando se utilizan combustibles de origen fósil como sostenibles”.

Van’s RV–15 in the works - AOPA

https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2021/july/26/vans-rv-15-in-the-works 


Van's officials confirmed July 26 that their next airplane will be made of metal like the kit airplanes that preceded it. But it will have a high wing and be "suitable" for backcountry flying at remote airstrips.

"We're excited about the design. It's a large departure," Rian Johnson, president of Van's Aircraft, said. "Patience until we get it just right."

The backcountry RV–15 will be available as a tailwheel aircraft first, and then with tricycle gear later. Most Van's designs are offered with either tailwheel or tricycle landing gear (except the RV–10 and RV–12, which are tricycle only).  The aircraft will feature a stick rather than a yoke.

ST Engineering Antycip Delivers ONERA’s State-of-the-art New Flight Simulator

viernes, 16 de julio de 2021


 

 

 press release


The French aerospace lab’s new flight simulator brings together the latest technologies including 3D capabilities, separate and dynamic POV for pilot and co-pilot, and head and hand tracking.

 

Paris (France), 1st July 2021 – ONERA, through its Cognitive Engineering and Applied Neuroscience unit (ICNA) based at the Salon-de-Provence Air Base (BA 701), conducts cognitive engineering activities for the development of new Human/System Interaction (HSI) concepts for managing complex systems or operations.

The study of human-system interactions necessarily involves putting the human operator in realistic conditions. For many reasons, both scientific (need to perfectly control all the variables) and practical (such as cost economy and safety), simulation is an essential means to put the human operator in this situation. Therefore, these studies rely on the ability to simulate the real world, prototype innovative interaction modes, and characterise the impact of these new interaction modes on the performance of the human-machine couple. 

To meet the requirements of these various studies, ONERA decided to install a flight simulator incorporating a research cockpit for large aircraft such as the Airbus A320 or A350, to immerse the human operator in an environment as close as possible to the real thing, which necessarily involves the visual.

When ONERA wrote the technical specifications for the projection system, they realised that they would have to work with a company specialised in the world of simulation. This company would have to provide a simulator capable of meeting high requirements, such as a large cylindrical screen, a 4K resolution with 3D capabilities, a dynamic viewpoint for the pilot and co-pilot, a head-tracking system, a motorised day or night mode, and automatic calibration software. All of this must of course be configurable through an intuitive web interface.

ST Engineering Antycip won the tender with a budget-friendly offer that would allow the installation team to meet their high requirements, all to a relatively tight deadline.

“We only had 13 weeks from validation to delivery,” said Quentin Blancheri, ST Engineering Antycip’s key account manager. “This was made possible thanks to the relationships ST Engineering Antycip has with other manufacturers like Barco, as well as our expertise in optical blending, which meant the team went onsite already knowing where to place projectors down to the millimetre. Rigging projectors with extreme precision is usually rather time-consuming, but the team planned well and anticipated ONERA’s needs enough to order the perfect gear.” 

The brand new simulator – SCHEMAX – includes a bespoke 5m long x 2.7m high cylindrical composite screen, which was delivered in six separate panels and built on site. With a field of view of 220 x 45 degrees, the bespoke screen is powered by three Barco FL40 projectors, which are designed from the ground up to handle the simulation environment’s most rigorous training requirements. The team also selected auto-calibration blending and warping, and for night-time simulation, integrated optical blending, tracking, and active 3D glasses. 

“To anticipate any issues with black levels, and to further enhance the feeling of immersion, we suggested painting all of the walls in black before installation,” said Blancheri.

ONERA provided the cockpit and the PC Suite, though ST Engineering Antycip suggested the right computer specs for the job. The content, which also comes from ONERA, is fed via display port (two PCs per projector) and viewed using VR Vantage.

“There were also some very specific constraints about the surroundings,” said Blancheri. “There are military jets that regularly fly above and there is a quarry nearby with regular explosions, so it was important to make sure everything was properly rigged and that there was an auto-calibration or scalable display that could be called up at the touch of a button.

“We selected ST Engineering Antycip because their technical offer met all of our requirements within the budget we had set. We are fully satisfied with the work done by ST Engineering Antycip, and the result exceeded our expectations. ONERA’s new SCHEMAX simulator now has a professional projection system allowing us to put the pilot and co-pilot in an immersive and realistic visual environment,” said Gregory Bonin, research engineer at ONERA, in charge of the programme.

ST Engineering Antycip’s France and Spain director, Johan Besnainou, concluded: “The SCHEMAX simulator built for ONERA was one with so many functionalities, and it was yet another successful strategic project for us. We hope that the SCHEMAX project will be a long-term one to allow us to continue our great working relationship with ONERA and pledge our ongoing support.”

Repsol e Iberia firman un convenio para avanzar hacia una movilidad más sostenible

 



  • Esta colaboración se enmarca en los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) que promueve Naciones Unidas a través de la Agenda 2030.
  • Contempla programas y actividades conjuntas en tres ámbitos: el desarrollo de combustibles para aviación de bajas emisiones de carbono, la producción de electricidad e hidrógeno renovable para descarbonizar la flota de vehículos de Iberia y la transición ecológica hacia instalaciones más sostenibles a través de nuevas tecnologías basadas en inteligencia artificial, entre otras.
  • Repsol lleva años inmersa en un proceso de transformación y de diversificación de sus negocios con el objetivo de liderar la transición energética, siendo la primera compañía de su sector en fijarse la meta de ser una compañía cero emisiones netas en el año 2050.
  • Iberia forma parte de IAG, primer grupo en comprometerse a lograr 0 emisiones netas en 2050. Además, en 2030 operará un mínimo de un 10% de sus vuelos con combustibles de origen sostenible.
  • Este convenio refuerza el papel de ambas compañías como actores relevantes en la transición energética y establece un marco general de colaboración para avanzar hacia la consecución de los objetivos globales de desarrollo sostenible.


Iberia y Repsol han firmado un convenio de colaboración para avanzar hacia una movilidad más sostenible, entre otros objetivos. El acuerdo entre la compañía multienergética y la aerolínea se enmarca en los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) que promueve Naciones Unidas a través de la Agenda 2030.

El Consejero Delegado de Repsol, Josu Jon Imaz, y el Presidente de Iberia, Javier Sánchez-Prieto,  han formalizado el acuerdo, que se traduce en el desarrollo de ambiciosos programas y actividades conjuntas en tres ámbitos: la investigación y producción de combustibles para aviación de origen sostenible, capaces de reducir la huella de carbono derivada de su combustión en vuelo;  el desarrollo de procesos para la producción y suministro de electricidad e hidrógeno renovable que permitan descarbonizar la flota de vehículos terrestres de Iberia; y  la gestión energética de las instalaciones de Iberia mediante sistemas avanzados (Energy Management System) e inteligencia artificial, así como instalaciones de autoconsumo.

Para Javier Sánchez-Prieto, Presidente de Iberia, “este acuerdo con Repsol es completamente estratégico para que Iberia pueda avanzar en el compromiso de sostenibilidad que ha adquirido. Nuestra estrategia de sostenibilidad actual se basa, sobre todo, en lograr la máxima efi-ciencia de nuestras operaciones y ofrecer a nuestros clientes una experiencia de viaje cada vez más sostenible. El acuerdo con Repsol refuerza nuestra apuesta más a futuro por la investigación y el desarrollo de combustibles para aviación de origen sostenible, la transición ecológica de nuestros equipos en aeropuertos y una gestión más eficiente de nuestras instalaciones”. 

Por su parte, el Consejero Delegado de Repsol, Josu Jon Imaz, ha afirmado que “la puesta en marcha de este acuerdo de colaboración con un socio estratégico para la compañía como es Iberia es un paso más en el Plan Estratégico de la compañía, que nos permitirá avanzar en el objetivo de ser una compañía cero emisiones en 2050. Repsol tiene la capacidad de ofrecer una respuesta global a las necesidades de un sector como es el de la aviación, que requiere una solución multi energética para cubrir su demanda de energía, tanto en tierra como en aire, donde la electrificación presenta dificultades”.

En este sentido, Repsol lleva años inmersa en un proceso de transformación y de diversifica-ción de sus negocios con el objetivo de liderar la transición energética, siendo la primera com-pañía de su sector en apoyar el Protocolo de Kioto, en emitir un bono verde y, también, en di-ciembre de 2019, en fijarse la meta de ser una compañía cero emisiones netas en el año 2050. Para ello, ha presentado un Plan Estratégico 2021-2025 que marcará la transformación de la compañía en los próximos años y supondrá una aceleración en la transición energética.

La Organización de Aviación Civil Internacional (OACI) ha definido dos objetivos globales para el sector: una mejora del 2% anual en la eficiencia del consumo de combustible hasta 2050 y un crecimiento neutro en carbono a partir de 2020. Para lograr estas metas y promover el cre-cimiento sostenible de la aviación internacional, la OACI está aplicando una serie de medidas que incluyen mejoras en la tecnología aeronáutica y operativas, combustibles de aviación sostenibles y otras basadas en el mercado como las recogidas en el Plan de Compensación y Re-ducción de Carbono para la Aviación Internacional (CORSIA).

Iberia forma parte de IAG, que ha ido más allá de este objetivo de OACI y ha sido el primer grupo aéreo en comprometerse a lograr 0 emisiones netas en 2050. Además, en 2030 las aero-líneas de IAG operarán un mínimo de un 10% de sus vuelos con combustibles de origen soste-nibles. El Grupo adquirirá un millón de toneladas de combustible de aviación sostenible al año, lo que le permitirá reducir las emisiones de carbono en dos millones de toneladas para 2030, lo que equivale aproximadamente a la absorción de CO2 de un bosque con una extensión similar a 400.000 campos de fútbol. Adicionalmente, IAG se convertirá en el primer grupo de aerolíneas del mundo en extender su compromiso de emisiones netas cero de CO2 a su cadena de proveedores. 

Iberia está desarrollando su estrategia medioambiental sobre tres pilares: operaciones más eficientes − donde se incluyen todas las iniciativas de renovación de flota, reducción del consumo de combustible y electrificación de sus vehículos, entre otras −; una experiencia de viaje más sostenible para sus clientes − a través de la digitalización de servicios, la eliminación progresiva de plásticos a bordo, el desarrollo de su sistema de gestión de residuos y la compensación de la huella de carbono−; y su compromiso con la transición ecológica de la aviación a través, sobre todo, de su colaboración en la investigación y desarrollo de combustibles de origen sostenible. 

Repsol produjo en 2020 los dos primeros lotes de biojet del mercado español en sus centros industriales de Puertollano y Tarragona, y su fabricación se extenderá a otras instalaciones de Repsol en España. Con este hito, en línea con su vocación de ofrecer soluciones pioneras para el sector aeronáutico, la compañía multi energética ha avanzado en la producción de combustibles con baja huella de carbono en un sector como el de la aviación, donde alternativas como la electrificación no son viables en estos momentos.

Además, Repsol lidera el suministro multi energético en España, aportando soluciones que me-joran la eficiencia, aumentando el peso de energías de bajas emisiones. La compañía ya tiene en marcha iniciativas para fabricar combustibles de bajas emisiones basados en residuos en los distintos centros industriales, un eje que forma parte de su estrategia de descarbonización. Asimismo, producirá combustibles sintéticos cero emisiones netas a partir de hidrógeno reno-vable y CO2, que podrán utilizarse en los motores instalados actualmente en los aviones. 

Por todo ello, ambas compañías han configurado un grupo de trabajo, formado por represen-tantes de las dos empresas, en el que se concretarán todas las actividades y proyectos de futuro con el objetivo de lograr una movilidad más sostenible y una gestión energética más eficiente.
