It is one hundred years since the world’s first paying passenger took to the skies in 1914. Today 32 million flights carry three billion passengers and 50 million tonnes of freight a year. Globally the aviation sector’s economic impact is estimated at US$2.4 trillion annually. Today aviation is so integral to jobs, to commerce and to international trade that it has become a necessity. Flying has become so easily accessible that people chose to fly on demand.
In the next 20 years (2014-2033), according to Airbus’ Global Market Forecast, passenger traffic will grow annually at 4.7% driving a need for around 31,400 new passenger and freighter aircraft (100 seats and above) worth US$4.6 trillion. The passenger and freighter fleet will increase from today’s 18,500 aircraft to 37,500 by 2033, an increase of nearly 19,000 aircraft. Some 12,400 older less fuel efficient passenger and freighter aircraft will be retired.
Three Historic Avro Aircraft, all designed by Roy Chadwick formate for the 1st, and probably last ever time. The formation of the only airworthy Vulcan and Lancaster Bombers pass over the opening of the building project for the Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial. Lest we Forget.
Researchers at BAE System's Advanced Technology Centre are currently investigating the advanced concept, which embeds tens of thousands of micro-sensors directly into the aircraft skin. The smart skin will allow the aircraft to...
Airbus forecasts that China will need over 5,300 new passenger aircraft and freighters from 2014 to 2033, with a total market value of US$ 820 billion. It represents 17 per cent of the world total demand for over 31,000 new aircraft in the next 20 years.

NASA's green aviation project is one step closer to developing technology that could make future airliners quieter and more fuel-efficient with the successful flight test of a wing surface that can change shape in flight.
The final assembly of Airbus’ first A330 with the new 242 tonne maximum take-off-weight (MTOW) capability is underway at the A330 Final Assembly Line in Toulouse, France. The aircraft is currently completing its structural assembly before the cabin integration phase and will be used for certification flight trials.
The first A320neo to fly has landed back at Toulouse-Blagnac Airport France at 02:22 pm local time after successfully completing its first flight which lasted around two and a half hours. The aircraft – carrying the registration F-WNEO – was flown by Airbus Experimental Test Pilots Philippe Pellerin and Etienne Miche de Malleray. Accompanying them in the cockpit was Test-Flight Engineer Jean-Paul Lambert. Monitoring the progress of the flight profile were the Flight-Test Engineers Manfred Birnfeld and Sandra Bour-Schaeffer.
Earlier this year Rolls-Royce took the unusual step of publicly laying out its strategic vision for developing a new series of large turbofans for the next decade and beyond. Now the company is beginning to detail the first steps it will take to turn this vision into reality.
Contrary to what most public relations firms recommend, Airbus has chosen to downplay the debut of the A320neo (New Engine Option). No official ceremony was staged, unlike the presentation—with Hollywood-style hoopla—for the debut of the A320 in 1987. Of course theA320neo is not an all-new commercial transport, but it does mark the first time that the European manufacturer has secured more than 3,000 firm orders for an aircraft—before it even takes to the air.
La semana pasada nos desplazamos a las oficinas de Ingeinnova Aeronautics para realizar una presentación de posibles alternativas biomiméticas a aplicar dentro de uno de los proyectos de I+D+i en los que estamos colaborando con ellos. Por mucho que hayas preparado la presentación, antes de cada reunión es inevitable sentir cierto nerviosismo, y es que hay un factor que escapa totalmente a tu control: el factor humano ¿Con qué tipo de personas me encontraré? ¿Me escucharán o tendré que luchar contra la temida indiferencia? ¿Les parecerán mis propuestas razonables o me toparé con un muro de incredulidad?
