The ancient aviator and the Albatros

Geoff Roberts air tests Aero’s latest Albatros variant, the L 139.

MY FIRST HIDDEN reactions to an invitation to fly in the Aero L 39 Albatros could never be described as being fired with wild enthusiasm.

A Benefit of Building

One of the real advantages of building your own airplane is the opportunity to customize. Amateur builders often have a choice between several engines and propellers, a rainbow of paint schemes, and a variety of options when it comes to avionics. Typically the Glasair Sportsman is a glass-paneled airplane with panels manufactured by Oregon-based Advanced Flight Systems.

The company makes three high-resolution LCD screens ranging from 8.4 inches (diagonally) to 6.5 inches, all of which can be configured to operate as an EFIS or an engine monitor or both at the same time.

Ulyanovsk scientists presented a unique development in the field of safety

The integrated flight control and navigation system (IPNS) for information-control field of the cockpit of the new aircraft type — the result of joint work of experts of the Ulyanovsk State Technical University and UKBP.

The system is designed to measure the altitude and speed of the aircraft parameters that determine the spatial position in all flight modes. This information is especially valuable during takeoff and landing, when the pilot has to operate with a large amount of data. It is in these phases of flight relentless showgirl accidents.

This development will improve the ergonomics

The presentation of the second sample, the Mi-38, the exhibition HeliRussia 2011

Mi-38 — medium-range multi-purpose helicopter turbine engines. The Mi-38 has been designed primarily to replace its fleet of Mi-8 and Mi-17. Initially the machine was designed for the certification and sale on the international market, so the Mi-38 has a lot of advanced features, such as the glass cockpit (English glass cockpit) for the two pilots, electronic control system and extensive use of composite materials, including the carrier and The tail rotor.

The original power plant consists of two turboshaft engines Klimov TV-7-117V power to the shaft 1753 kW (2350 hp), but can be installed any suitable
