Il designer appassionato di aviazione Oscar Vinals ha progettato l’Awwa Progress Eagle, un maxi aereo futuristico a tre piani e con emissioni inquinanti zero. Il nuovo aereo non sarà alimentato con i combustibili fossili tradizionali ma si baserà su sei motori a idrogeno e sarà dotato di un motore posteriore, una turbina eolica, pannelli solari sul tetto e sulle ali. «L’aereo sarà capace di generare in proprio l’energia necessaria per volare, e sarà anche più silenzioso degli aerei tradizionali», ha spiegato il suo progettista. Vinals prevede che la sua «creatura» potrà trasportare fino a 800 passeggeri, (275 in più rispetto al più capace modello oggi in servizio).
London City Airport (LCY) è stato premiato da Airport Carbon Accreditation, un’iniziativa del Consiglio Internazionale degli Aeroporti europei (ACI Europe), per il suo continuo impegno nella riduzione della proprie emissioni di anidride carbonica. A LCY è stato riconosciuto il raggiungimento del livello 2 del programma, che riflette il suo successo nella riduzione delle emissioni per [...]→
British air-traffic controllers, working with the U.S. aerospace and defence company Lockheed Martin, have invented a technique that could help to ease gridlock in the skies and it is already being trialled at Heathrow.
ired of mystery meat or the vegetarian alternative to cake – rubbery melon? Well, from fish and chips to chia seeds with mango, airlines are overhauling their onboard catering. Soon you may be able to upgrade your food along with your seat.
Many things are frowned on at 35,000ft. A flying chippie might well be considered one of them. But last week, British Airways threw caution to the wind and unveiled its "Flying Fish and Chip Supper", complete with vinegar and tartare sauce (though sadly no word on mushy peas).
Remarkably, the result has not been the flabby-battered disappointment many surely expected, and – thanks to precision-timed preflight frying – has even earned the approval of Stuart Fusco, proprietor of the legendary Quayside fish and chip restaurant in Whitby, North Yorkshire (Best in Britain at the National Fish and Chip awards). Praise indeed.
Lessons learned from this prototype are incorporated in the second airplane, to be registered as HB-SIB, construction of which was started in 2011. Its more spacious cockpit will enable the pilot to fully recline during flights lasting from 4 to 6 days; it will have an increased payload; its electrical circuitry will be isolated to enable flights in rain; and system redundancy will improve reliability.
Final tests are taking place and the assembly of the airplane should be completed by the end of 2013. Flight testing is planned for spring 2014, and the round-the-world flight for between April and July 2015.
